This time last year they had about three or four threads going about us and our financial problems. At the moment you can't even find 'The Vile Thread' on Small Heath Alliance. They have gone from obsession to just ignoring us. A bit like a little kid sticking their fingers in their ears and singing "la la la I can't hear you" when you are telling them something they don't want to hear. They have even stopped speculating about how many goals they reckon the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City will stick past us in the coming season.

Oh, we'll be the main thread come kick off at Spurs. They'll be cheering on Kane and the rest.

Their new coach Craig Gardner is saying they are going to have to play their way out of the Championship and not fight their way out .He is confident that they have the players to do it and it is a exciting time .He wants to see the club back where they belong .Poor sod,they are already where they belong!

Snigger


If 'True Blue' Craig Gardner is now a player and a coach does it mean that the next time he wants to quit the moment they get relegated he will have to write out two transfer requests?

A bit of straw-clutching.

Not the most comprehensive match report I have ever read. Presumably he doesn't get paid by how many words he contributes.

One of my favourite Villa Park games ever. As a twelve year old I was stood (as I always was) on The Holte.

What made it even better was we had just got our first video recorder so I got to tape those Central News highlights that angered Ron Saunders so much and watch them over and over again.

I had a rare excursion into the lower Trinity that day.  It pissed rain so hard we watched most of the match standing at the back.  What that clip doesn't show IIRC, is the clenched fist salute from Blake that he gave after turning to the Noses as he walked up to take the penalty.  After he'd missed it, he stood there like Noddy after someone had cut the spring in his neck.
