Poster posts on a forum. Shock horror.

Ha ha ha! Unintentionally hilarious! Which is about the only time you've ever been remotely funny, so take that as a win Clamps old bean.

You're welcome Mr Meldrew.

This is the most depressing thread on this site.

I didn't agree with this sentiment at the time, but twenty minutes later you have been proved correct.

The fact this is true is all the more remarkable when there are threads, amongst other things about Israel/Palestine and about mental health!

That's just because ye haven't checked out the "Jokes" thread recently.

Garth Crooks still stealing a living by not knowing much. Two Villa players in the squad.

Quote
Douglas Luiz (Aston Villa): The ability of Luiz to get into the opposition's penalty area, and time his runs well enough to get among the goals, is quite a talent. He's scored nine Premier League goals at Villa Park this season.

Scoring goals from midfield is a valuable asset and one of the reasons Villa find themselves back in the top four. What is surprising however is that Villa have already let in nine goals from corners this season, including the one they conceded in the 4-2 win against Nottingham Forest. It will be interesting to see whether Unai Emery's newly produced defensive duo of Clement Lenglet and Pau Torres can fill the void left by injuries to Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings.

What is clear is that their manager has focused his attention on Villa's attacking prowess. However, finishing in the top four may finally depend on how well they can defend.

Quote
Leon Bailey (Aston Villa): It's difficult to ignore Ollie Watkins when he's scoring goals and I think Moussa Diaby is a really good player, especially when he's on form. However, Leon Bailey is keeping Diaby out of the starting line-up and grabbing the spotlight - and has been for a while.

He traumatised Nottingham Forest in a 45-minute outburst of scintillating football. He put Watkins' goal on a plate, was instrumental in Villa's second goal scored by Douglas Luiz, and scored his team's fourth goal himself. This was a sparkling performance by the Jamaica international who has clearly worked hard on his game to obtain the kind of consistency that has forced Unai Emery to play him. Now that's how you force your way into a successful team .

May have been mentioned elsewhere, but I see that the BBC has now signed up and is making a song and dance about having signed up Wayne Rooney as a pundit. The first time we will get to hear the wisdom and wit of pundit Wayne will be as part of the BBC's coverage of the FA Cup tie between Notts Forest and - wait for it - Manchester United.

Every TV football match I've ever seen has had pundits that played for one or both of the teams playing. What's the problem with this?

the best episode of MOTD in recent years was when they all went on strike in support of FA Cup ears and it was left to pictures and crowd noise . Brilliant

I agree. Don't usually watch the program but did that time to support that style of show.

I watch MOTD with finger on fast forward - i watch the goals and then skip to the next game highlights* unless it is the Villa. I then listen to what the pundits have to say

Unless it is that useless shitbag Richards - then i have to skip over that as well as his voice and general "Matey Cuntishness" irritates beyond belief.

they tried to ruin the viewer experience by not playing the famous intro music etc in solidarity with jug ears. It backfired and they created a brilliant template of how it should be .

The problem is that he has clearly been engaged by the BBC on account of him being a famous ex Man Utd player, rather than on the basis of his ability to communicate a deep seated knowledge of the game to an audience in an articulate, entertaining and informative manner (biased or not).

If inarticulate former footballers on TV is what's upsetting you, I'd recommend turning the sound down on every game.
