I know we worry about our form, but there are several teams above us in serious danger of continuing to free fall. All 3 of the bottom haven't been cast aside, its all to play for still.

You are correct however the points to play for are running out, if the bottom 3 drop points then catch up becomes harder.

Save point deduction those already in real trouble will not be joined by others

Villa are going to be in a mess next season already overspent the 2 seasons before plus another 150 odd million this season. I wonder how lenient the FL will be with them. 

they'll make some positive FFP points by selling JG

Yep i think JG & Mings will be sold which should help them.

It seems best chance of staying up when you get promoted is to find 3 or 4 players who are going to make a big difference to your starting 11 as opposed to assembling 10+ players. We did that and failed. Fulham did it and failed and now Villa.

Not sure what world he's worth £80m in, mind.

He's an overrated diver.

yeah, it's a solid approach, build slowly and limit the risk

Yep as Sheff Utd are proving and  Burnley before them. And the more obvious example of Leicester with the likes of Kasper, Wes Morgan, Drinkwater, Mahrez n Vardy being part of they championship winning team

    • I think the Parkinson sacking may bite the Makems in the backside. I assume there is more to the story than just the on field performances, if not they may just have sealed their long term fate in League One for a very long time.
    • Whoever gets it has a job on their hands. Used to be known for bringing local kids through and according to relatives most of the promising kids from the area choose us over them now
    • my late wife met him at a fan convention in Harrogate some years back and she said he came across as a very straightforward guy, spent a considerable time chatting to her and her friend and even got a couple of the other guests (Kenny Baker and Jeremy Bulloch, I think) to do the same. Viewed himself as an ordinary person who'd been lucky in life and was just as happy to send himself up as play serious roles, but took the Green Cross Code very seriously to the extent that he was prouder of that than his role in Star Wars... One of his favourite sketches      
    • I think Bettinelli is a good organiser and engages with his defence. His Goalkeeping ability is average at this level like a lot of other Keepers. I think we have to remember that if he was great he wouldn't be here. When Shay Given came on loan just watching him was a joy and that was including the warm ups where he was aware of the kids walking behind the goal waving flags when he used to tell the players to stop firing practice shots at him in case it hit one of the little ones. Small things but they matter and tell a lot about the man. He always made marks in the turf (probably much to the annoyance of the Groundsmen) so he knew his positioning in the heat of the action and was always exercising to keep warm and alert. Another Keeper I liked was Paul Smith, a comparative nobody in the history of Goalkeeping but I have positive memories of him always giving his best during his short tenure here. Likewise I have good memories of Danny Coyne. I remember when Mark Schwarzer first arrived he was a good Keeper but his kicking was terrible, he struggled to reach the half way line. After the first Summer break something had improved (presumably coaching and practice) immeasurably as the length of his kicks were half as much again after that.   Willie Whigham was a real character, Jim Platt possibly my favourite whilst Steve Pears was probably one of the best in living memory. Keepers, they come and go, some leave positive memories and some like Valdes and Guzan are best forgotten about.
    • You mustn't have been at that game then, that Boro fans felt we had a better chance with ten men tells the true story. He was an absolute liability, appallingly poor, how on earth he had earned a living in the professional game is a mystery. That Villa fans beforehand had nicknamed him "Bad" instead of "Brad" fills in the gaps.
