  1. Voted for FF 5 mins ago - he's 40%, McGinn's on 36% Got to say, the technique from both Villa lads is exceptional but Forestieri's persistence and then his strike is just brilliant.
  2. At least it only lasted 2 and a half minutes!! Now, in this case, if you head on to 2 minutes 40, the following lines speak volumes about this lot...
  3. "Chansiri noooo, you cannot let him go (let him go!!), Chansiri, you cannot let him go (let him go!!)" etc Definitely Bohemian Rhapsody....
  4. He's been a top player for us, when he's been fit enough to play, but I think we need someone more like a Carlton Palmer for that central midfield role. One who can do the aggressive midfield battling, drop in to defensive positions when needed and make runs beyond the opposition defence to nick the occasional goal - CP was the best at that for me. When I look at Iorfa I wonder, with a bit of coaching, if he'd be able to do those things - he certainly looks athletic enough and has an eye for goal.
  5. Yes, long shot, I know - plenty of work on the weights during the summer might do the trick!!
  6. This will be the key next season - either getting Joao to perform in a similar way to Fletcher, if he should be unavailable, or to get someone in, ideally with a bit of pace too, who can lead the line. Fletcher had brief spells under Carlos where he looked the business but he's really shown his capabilities this year.
  7. As Steve Bruce keeps saying, while the chance is there, you've got to keep having a go. Personally, I'd prefer Villa to win that game on Saturday then if Derby and ourselves can win that'd put Bristol under a bit of pressure for when they play Reading. Bristol's two games after that are us and Derby. At the end of the day, all we can do is try to win each game for now. Tough ask but we'll see.
  8. The big difference for me is when we go into high press mode and pin them around their penalty area. (It beats having us sat on our own 18 yard line watching the opposition play it about waiting for a crack to appear). It's pretty much how the first goal came about last night (brilliant awareness and technique from MM too) but it does need to be a team effort for it to be effective. Joao wasn't involved enough, in this respect, but when he started putting the effort in they had no way of playing out, like they did in the first half. Not having a go at Joao, I really want him to do well with us 'cos he's got bags of talent.
  9. He was terrible first half and apart from a positive run and shot from the half way line, contributed very little. Second half, it looks as though he'd had a good talking too because, apart from his two excellent assists, he really put a shift in, regarding work rate.
  10. ...and also tracks back to help defend and puts in some excellent tackles but we'll just ignore that, makes your point seem better.
  11. Made a lot of positive forward passes tonight, especially in the second half when we finally got on top of Forest. Like some have said, not as bad as some of the moaners will have you believe.
  12. Top player for us back in the day and his goal at Cardiff ("still Glen Whelan!!!!) ranks as one of my recent highlights but, we need midfielders with more mobility than him and who can score more frequently. Great to see him come down to the Kop at the end and acknowledge the fans though.
  13. ...and made a great run to get in to that position plus exceptional first touch which made the pass to Hooper possible. Some of us remember these things too.
  14. Aarons and Lazaar to come back too, gives us something different. Just look to the Forest game first for a good result.
  15. From the interview it sounds as though it was his fault we got the sad old bat in as prime minister anyway so, thanks Uri, but bugger off and bend some more cutlery.
