Not much happening, bring on the footy.

I thought I’d better post something, if only to prove that I haven’t given up on the site or suffered some horrible fate.

The trouble is there’s nothing happening is there?
There’s plenty of guesswork and speculation, but that’s not really my scene, so I find it difficult to be interested.
Still, that’s what international breaks do to me and I couldn’t even be bothered to watch the England game properly, as we’re frankly rubbish, in my opinion.
I’m actually working with a Lithuanian bloke and he sees a 2-0 loss as practically a victory. He also tells me that Lithuania has a population of around 3.5 million and it’s national sport is Basketball.
I can see why he’s laughing to be honest.

We do know that Steve Bruce has said he’s going to bid for Sam Johnstone. I can’t say I’m convinced, myself and still feel he’s too young to be our No 1, but then what do I know?
I just don’t think a run of five or so decent games is quite enough to make a decision on, but the management must see something in him and Villa signing him wouldn’t majorly bother me. Indeed I’d love him to become great for us, as it’s a position we’ve had a problem with for a while, the same as our defence generally.
When you consider the great defenders and goalies we’ve had over the years, it makes it all the worse, doesn’t it?
Not that I’m feeling morose or downbeat these days. I am looking forward to the Norwich game.

What else?
Jack Grealish played for the England U-21’s last night and was by most accounts, poor.
He’s one who needs to hurry up and do something or he’s going to end up as another Gary Gardner, a promising player who will meander his way through time at the club and ultimately achieve very little.
Of course I’d still like him to come good. It’s just that I don’t see it happening.

And then there’s more complaints about the Villa website and this time it’s the ticket sales section, which is quite simply scandalous and embarrassing.
Good grief Villa, just sort it out.

And I’m sorry, but everything else in the so-called news is just waffle.
Roll on an actual game.

    That’s a very interesting point.
    What would a Prem club be willing to pay a second goalie, as opposed to the Villa paying a first goalie?

    That’s what it boils down too and I’d suggest there’s not that much in it, as if we’re convinced, we have to pay over the odds, yet not as much as an established Prem first goalie would cost, if you see what I mean?
    So it’s good for the club and the player?

    finally weekend comes and we have a game. hates those international games. they interrupt good form. hopefully we can continue or even improve to another level. we have some good games left. games which mean something if only for the opposition. but these games will be better then pre season warm ups. winning all remaining games should be the goal. if they managed that what a statement that makes. it would say loud and clear that we’re back. another season to to build a team to not only survive premiership but to compete

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
