What were you guys AND SJM doing in town on a Saturday night? According to the Small Heath massive we're not allowed.

Surprised we weren't killed. Was afeared for me life the entire time, with the triumphant Zulu Army swarming the place

I think in time unless we break into the top 6 the pressure to really go for it will be too much for him and Tyrone. I think jack will be our Matt tiss

Assuming we stay up then we'll keep them all for at least one more season.  It will depend on where we are then as to how it pans out.

Given our owners and their obvious ambition I think we'll hold onto everyone next summer and then it'll be all about the business we do and how far we can push on. I suspect if we're not in Europe in the 21-22 season then we might start to see players looking elsewhere. If that happens how we use the big money that comes in will define the club we're going to be going forward.

Maybe you are right, but with the personalities these guys seem to have, the progress theyíve made together, the joyous way we came up and *they* were both so pivotal in making history, excelling for club and country, both so loved, the unadulterated fun they seem to have had at times, John being mates with Jack, I think weíve got the best chance for that extra bit of loyalty.
Of course Iíll always be the naive optimist, but I think I can judge a character too and I donít think theyíll be off at the first sniff, and we certainly donít need to let them go.

And itís so damn good to be able to type that, to believe it even if Iím wrong. Weíve had our share of those not delivering or even trying, but itís just wondeful to have multiple players we love.

It's been a long long time since we've loved players, great isn't it?

What an excellent point - we really do seem to have "our" club back and the players seem to be every bit a part of that

Long may it continue

In terms of value and impact, Villa's best signing since...? I'm struggling to think.  Maybe Barry?

Barry didn't make an 'instant' impact as he was a kid.  McGinn certainly has.  I'm thinking maybe Dublin?

Bent made quite an impact after signing, scoring goals pretty much straight away.

Bent cost the best part of £20m... and you are correct about Barry of course, Dave, his impact was longer term.

I have always thought in my time supporting the greatest team in the world that the signing of Ray Graydon had the most impact. A part exchange deal involving Brian Godfrey seemed to me to be the catalyst in the revival of Villas fortunes from the dark days of Div 3.

Maybe John Carew - a simple swap for Milan Baros & an instant hero.
