Just realised that I know his Dad - A big Villa fan.  I remember him telling me a few years ago that his son was at Albion.

A few may know him (the Dad) ex-Aston licensee, had a few pubs in Aston in his time, perhaps best remembered for when he took over the Britannia and cleaned up the middle floor room (that had been empty for years), got the upholstery claret and blue and the whole room was decorated in Villa memorabilia, late 90s.

So that's who he is. I never realised.
I met his dad at the Clay Oven in London prior to either the FA Cup Semi Final against Liverpool or the Final against Arsenal  - can`t remember which. He came across as a decent bloke - very proud of his son , and rightly so (I think he may have another older son who was on the books at Oxford Utd)

Nice watch.

I couldn’t make out what it was. Can’t think of anything that size with a red pusher like that.

I think it's a Breitling Red Arrows special edition Emergency.

Is that the one where Mickey's right hand points to the minutes and his left hand points to the hours?

I understand Mickey Mouse used to have a "Doug Ellis" watch

Interesting that Man Utd are rumoured to be considering a £30m bid for Jude Bellingham, who whilst having made 25 first team appearances for Blues, is the same age as Louie Barry. I'm staggered (and thankful) that the valuations of two England U17 players could be so dramatically different. How can anyone be confident enough in the prospects of a 16 year-old to commit that much money towards it?

£30 million on a 16 year old is £30 million less than they have to bid for Jack.

Not sure what Olbiyun's issue is?  We have dealt with the club who Barry was registered to.  We don't need their permission or consent for anything.  Still, as others have said, if it has affected their tin popt lives then it's a double whammy.

Dear Olbyiun,
We'm giving less fucks than brain cells in Sandwell.
Cheers!
The Villa.

From that Albion site, which is truly the domain of cretins.

Quote
They finished above us in 2014.

We finished above them in 2012/13/15/16/17/18/19. 

We were the top team in the midlands in the 2010s by a country mile.

So, finishing above us but not actually getting promoted whilst we did constitutes a better season than us.

Right.

I've never, ever, genuinely NEVER given a thought to comparing where they finish compared to us until i looked at that site just now.

That's what kills them, they are obsessed with us, most of us couldn't give a fuck about them.

I did work out a Midlands League based purely on League finishes, with points for being the top, second and third highest team in the Midlands.

Amusingly Blues have never finished above us in any decade.

Baggies did finish with the second most points, even though Wolves were top Midlands club than them.

I think Leicester might debate the Best Midlands Team of the Decade title.

I don't think it even merits a debate.

Quite strange. It's Leicester.

If you change it to West Midlands it's up for debate. Wolves finished the decade strongly and we went to Wembley six times. Baggies most consistent. Even the shit down the road won something, which no one else has. Pretty poor from us all tbh.
