I think it will soon become clear that we've been run prehistorically for years.

I've said many times on here, the day we start seeing regularly a good Villa side we'll wonder how we put up with so much crap for so long. There must be youngsters on here and within our fanbase that have only witnessed shit football. Finally we get to join the 21st century, it's long overdue.

Yep, my lad is one of those youngsters. All he's known is utter garbage. I'm hoping this is just the start!

Mine too. There's a whole generation of young villa fans who have only ever known us being shite. I hope and pray that this is the start of all that changing.

My daughter has only ever witnessed shit apart from the odd match. Don't k ow how she will take it if we become entertaining and successful. Only get a point at old Trafford...We might wish for the Bruce days again.

What is pretty gob smacking is that even in our most successful period of late, the MON years, if you only watched us at home, you' have seen mostly shit football even then, as it was the away stuff that was exciting to watch.

As discussed ad infinitum, at the time ;)

Imagine an organised football team who knows what it's doing? With the players we have, and a bit of strengthening to come in January, the second half of the season, I fancy us to do a Fulham.

The Villa aeroplane is on the runway.

Jettison some of the excess baggage (I am looking at you Richards) and we might take off at the first attempt.

I wouldn't mind hijacking the Ryan Woods to Stoke City transfer.   Him and a decent centre back and I think we are a match for anyone. I'd like to see Woods, Grealish and McGinn as the central three midfielders.

As time goes by, I become more and more convinced that there's absolutely no way that all this can be anything other than a resounding success.

Long live the revolution, bab.

I liked "I will take advice and I will take opinions but I will make my decision and when we walk out it's our decision" . A bit of Cloughie there.

Was reading some stuff on Dean Smith about his belief in the 4 Rís:

Receiving skills
Releasing skills
Running skills
Retention skills

What a refreshing change it will be for our players when compared to Bruceís 4 Rís

Roll up sleeves skills
Ready to boot it long skills
Resist change skills
Ready with blame and excuse skills

Well, if Dean Smith the Vila fan from Great Barr with John Terry by his side can't get them fired up, I don't know what can.
