There is 0% doubt as to whether he's interfering with play or not he tried to kick the fucking ball!
The bottom line is this. We came into the championship with a reputation for being arrogant. Not true in my opinion but that's the perception and we can't change that. Officials don't like us and rivals hate us. It's up to us to take charge of the situation by battering our way out of this league and just stick two fingers up to the haters. We certainly aren't going to get any help so it's up to us all to pull together, fans and players. We can be that unstoppable juggernaut.

Just a belated massive well done to Glenn Whelan, strode forwards, found players in a Claret shirt with his passes and celebrated like a puppy as we scored 👍
I have to agree with you. Well said.

I think when we think back to those days when Smith came in, we had Tuanzebe, Whelan and Grealish playing and available.

All three are happy in possession and retain it (Whelan doesn't do anything fancy but he doesn't often lose it). That's the difference we've had with two of those three out and certainly in Grealish's case nobody that can come close to replicating what he does. When he's in possession in and around the halfway line, particularly when clearing our lines, he creates the time for other players to get into possession and our shape to return.

You can be as arrogant as you like if you are playing other teams off the 'park' and funeralling them. Being a bit shit doesn't really sit with arrogance.

Funeral as a verb is interesting BE. Double “l” before the “ing” though?

Funeraling or funeralling?

As an aside...autocorrect suggests “funeral lingerie”!

When I worked in my daughter's shop in Carrotville I liked to play Radio 3.  One local horny handed daughter of the soil used to call it Foooneral Mooosic.  Entirely appropriate as I would mostly be thinking about Villa.

Didnt we do it in a european game? Vassell scored.

Yeah great shout in 98/99 season UEFA Cup against Stromsgodset at VP we were 2 down at HT went onto to win 3-2 goals from Charles 83 min Vassell 89,90.

Nearly did it when we relegated Coventry as well in 00/01.  2-0 down in the first half to two Hadji goals, we came back to win 3-2 with two of the three goals being in the last 10 minutes.
