If only it was that simple Clampy, yes we are just about in my mind average at the moment, I have seen us a dam sight worse, but even if they were eye bleeding painful to watch, which at times in the years I have supported them we have been, I would still proudly acclaim to all and sundry that I am a Villa fan and proud. Does not mean I cannot come onto a Villa's fans page and do what Brummie's do best, moan and then moan some more, especially when I believe I have cause.

Don't get me wrong, it's fine to come on and have a moan of course it is. I just found Diablo's post so way over the top. The football is heartbreaking and makes him want to punch things? Really?
Heartbreaking, 6 more months of watching this turgid shit, makes me want to punch things and people, if there's a god I pray to him to make it stop.

Then don't watch it then.
Clampy thanks for the advice but you seem to have missed the fact that this comment was about our illustrious leaders emoji twitter post (whilst I personally think the football is pretty dire at times, rest assured that no things, people or animals were harmed in the making of this post ;-)

I think Clampy completely missed the point of the posts. Sad face, crying, unicorn, doctor emoji.

His actual meaning of the tweet is this - which is interesting.

Upon including the number six in his original tweet, Xia went on to explain: Its not meaning top 6... means we are 6 points short...

Pretty cool.

Quote
Dr Tony is back in town next week for our home matches against Sunderland and Ipswich Town and you could enjoy one of those games in his company.

Our popular owner is welcoming four Villans and a guest each to enjoy the matchday experience with him for the back-to-back home games.

The chairman running the squad through a powerpoint about smart cities in a room with one of his motivational quotes stencilled on the wall.

Hmmm.

I would rather he be in a room with Steve Bruce telling him get it sorted, where we are at the moment is not good enough, sort it or bye bye.

Agreed. I dont see a problem in this at all. It might not be the most sophisticated audience hes ever presented in front of but doesnt mean the players shouldnt get a glimpse into the world of the owner. He clearly cares about the club and his other work which we all hope in time will benefit the club and the city.

Randy gave a presentation on everything I know about running a successful Sports Team, it was short.
