    Complete Bulls***

    the only thing that was wrong was that Chambers was still on the pitch at 90 minutes. He committed two or three fouls that warranted a second yellow but the ref bottled them all.

    Villa interested in Emi

    You don't recoup money when you have to sell and players want to leave.

    Villa interested in Emi

    For Villa, relegation this season would be an apocalyptic disaster. There is a strong chance they might not survive if it happens again after they spent in excess of £100 million in the summer.
  4. It's a good job the management and players don't have the same attitude as some on here otherwise we would not have bothered to turn up today and would have missed out on 3 points . Excellent result and just what we needed .
  5. In one year. Now you know why we don't have bags of cash to spend.
  6. No one gets relegated at the start of November. A win would be a huge confidence booster and three points but losing will not see our season over.

    £34 million loss

    Reading through the accounts last night, they don't make good reading. There is no doubt that a club like City cannot do things any other way than Webber's model. My guess is that the first Championship club to go bust and not return is not very far away. Look at Bolton.

    Mainstream praise comes flooding in

    162. Posted by Rutland23 on 4 hours ago Classic commentary yesterday on the radio 'Jesus is just about to come on,' if was 3-1 to Norwich at this point. The other commentator then piped in with 'I think he's going to need his dad's help for this one!'

    Alex Tettey

    When Tettey came in last season was when the results started to improve. We do need a player with that skill set to sit in front of the central defenders. Leitner and Trybull don't fit that bill, IMHO.

    Player Ratings

    10 for every player. They were all exceptional.
  12. Play off final v Middlesboro is up there, simply because of the way we dominated the game. As as a standard Premier League game tho, this is right up there. Our win was no lucky fluke. We deserved it. Edit- just seen the Carrow Road bit. Probably celebrating a bit too much.

    Maguire £80 million!

    So Godfrey will be worth £100 million this time next year then.

    Palace to bid £10m for Max

    They can have his left boot for that. the old one he used last season.

    New Kit???

    Are supporters really that bothered by who made the kit? Surely it what it looks like that is important. I like the fact ours are different to anyone else. No doubt most of them are made in the same place regardless of manufacturer.

    Frank Lampard

    Can anyone show me where an ex player has had great success as a a manager at the same club? He struggled at Derby, IMHO. They had arguably the best squad in the league, certainly one of the highest spenders and Derby got nowhere near automatic promotion. Another gone by the end of the season.

    Villa or Derby?

    I don't either come close to us in style of play and ability TBH.

    Harry Wilson

    Undoubted talent but looks a long way from the finished article. Both him and Mount seem to make some very poor decisions at times.

    Iwan Day at Crewe

    The current team would have been proud of that goal. Great passing and movement.

    The Sunday Sun, that well known font of all knowledge.

    Parking at Villa?

    Park in Brum City centre and catch a train to the ground.
  22. Shame out last game wasn’t at Poorman Rd. can you imagine how that would have felt being crowned Champions there with the paupers being relegated.
  23. Still they have Southend to look forward too....maybe!
  24. That's another local derby L1pswich wont be having next year.

    Will TWTD become a property website for when they build houses on Poorman Road?
