Villa PR and why I’m fed up with it.

It seems we beat a mighty Mansfield Town second team today;,,10265~4013478,00.html

The trouble with this is, I couldn’t care less in the slightest and it really bugs me.
Surely Mansfield town should at best be seen as on a level with our academy kids? If the hype that we get spoon-fed about our academy kids is actually true, that is.
And would the squad playing against a load of kids normally warrant any kind of report? I doubt it.

I’m utterly bored with this type of stuff, which for me, can be summed up in “Okore had a run-out and didn’t collapse”. Same as for Unzog and his fabled injury (gardening leave, if like me, you don’t believe the BS), who should be well up for it, or totally pissed off (take your pick).
Which leads us back to Bent and Mutton.
Will they be willing to go balls out for the club after they’ve been right royally abandoned?
I doubt it, myself, but we’ll no doubt see.

I know the OS has to post something, but if this is as good as it gets in the closed season, we’re in trouble.

Show at least some ambition Villa and give us somthing to shout about, for god’s sake.
KI would be a minimum first signing, for me.
I don’t think he’s anything special, but he’s possibly better than anything we’ve got.
Which isn’t saying a lot.

    Latest on Ki is that if Arsenal’s alleged interest doesn’t materialise – he’ll complete a move to Villa. Sunderland not pursuing interest (source NewsNow)

      Highly doubt Arsenal are interested in him, I’m far more confident now we’ll get him unless some random big European club came in with CL football to offer.

        I’m a little lost at what’s the rush on Ki Yueng, reading about his stile of play, he’s weak in tackles, known for long passing and vision, master at dead ball chances,and has the ability on reading the game, but why was he out on loan to Sunderland, and may I add dropped by Gus Pyate in games, think things don’t ring right for me, anyone know more about him?m

    hello ppl
    morning all, hoolalah i would be surprised if that happened now giddy, think lambert wanted him 2 play that role behind strikers which i feel cole and a few more can play, granted he can play on wing also.

    i think Ki Yueng would be the guy that can improve our weak link midfield. from wot i saw last season bill, he more a all round midfielder. keeps possession, involved in starting play breaking up opposition play. big and strong and tackles 🙂 i don’t think we can get him but if we can. i think hes wot we need he got injured at sunderland if i remember thats why he was dropped in a cup game, had knee injury wasn’t 100% but he was a factor in sunderland improvement last season.

      Nath I think hoolahan will be a last resort If things get desperate which I think they are mate. He certainly fits the bill of a player on the cheap,plus he gets on well with keano. Time will tell I might even wager a bottle of malt on it if you want NATH???

    i agree things are desperate hence freebies lmao but i believe u improve were ur weakest and thats midfield (engine) westwood and delph i feel are improving but need another player and ki would fit that player 🙂 kea has not lived up 2 his billing

    cole, nzog bacuna and wiemann plus grealish can play in that role if hoolahan does come it would surprise me lol bottle of malt it is then

    Has anybody seen the little snippet in the papers this morning regarding Ian Taylor?
    Well, because Tayls has been critical of Lambert, at Paul Lamberts request he has NOT gone on the American tour and has been repleaced by Lee Hendrie.
    This is disgusting to treat a club legend in this way and to make matters worse, for that vile specimen Hendrie to replace him.
    Christ, its difficult to find anyone who hasn’t been critical of this baffoons spell.
    Another great decision my our idiotic manager.

      Absolutely Giddy! I can’t understand him either – and I am a Scot myself!. But Glesgie is another planet – even for other Scots. If Scotland does get independence Lambert will need a visa, and he would not pass the English test.

      Keano would be good at straightening the Bent. “So you score in the first 10 and think that’s job done for the day? Think again.”

        The GORBALS springs to to mind OLL I used to work with someone from that region & yes bloody hard to understand a word he spoke hence the word spoke not mumbled so basically I’m totally lost with what Lambert utters.I think he would have a problem passing a Scottish exam. 😀

          My Missus, who is Thai, came up with the answer. We were watching Lambert on MOD. I said I can’t understand a word he said. She replied “I think it’s an advert for Tennents Extra.”

    Just to follow on from my post from this morning regarding Ian Taylor being banished from the USA tour by Lambert.
    There is a link on “newsnow” for the official site who have put a free video on with regards the American tour and on this video, there is an interview with Lee Hendrie so the People have got it spot on.
    I don’t know if Taylor has said anything on his Twitter page as I don’t bother with all that. Perhaps someone could have a look?
    I can not believe Lambert can be so petty.
    What a complete moron he is.

    It’s ironic, don’t you think, that this post complains about the PR machine at Villa and it’s relentless drive to con us poor ‘idiots’ into buying season tickets against our will whilst at the same time blowing both legs off by upsetting fans over Ian Taylor’s exclusion from the US Tour. You couldn’t make it up!

      LANGFORDVILLA July 20, 2014 at 9:20 pm . Reply

      The Brum mail claims that Tayls was not available so Hendrie is simply standing in for him. I am not sure what to believe!

        Mmmm, not sure what to think either.
        I’d tend to be leaning on the side of the B’ham Mail as they must be on a charm offensive now, because Mat Kendrick was writing all sorts of negative stuff towards the back-end of last season. In particular, calling for Lambert’s head!!
        Kendrick won’t say anything now as he is probably out there with them for a free holiday!!!

    Following on from the Taylor debate – He started getting gobby towards the back end of last season and up to now. As an ambassador of the club he should be more selective in what he socially writes and “IF” its true that he was axed from the tour then he the right decision imo and only has himself to blame

      Paul Lambert and Randy Lerner could come and shit in your front room and you’d still take the side of the club.
