  • You can have no complaints about the last 25 minutes of that match yesterday and while I've taken to not reading what the manager and players say, I guess they'll all be happy too. And with the manager needing a point from yesterday, so he's on target for getting four points from his final two matches in September, he's probably over the moon. But has anyone taken him into a

  • There is something about Newcastle United fans that I can't quite put my finger on. They're not bitter or actually they are, but that isn't where it ends. There is this neanderthal element too. Now, it's not all of them, but there are a lot of them. They're loud. You hear them coming. And they're proud of it. And if you're in Newcastle, you have to be loud to be

  • I read a Tweet at the weekend that went something along the lines of 'Aston Villa fans always turn on themselves before turning on the manager' and it does seem a little like we've been here before. I then Tweeted something along the lines of why do we have to have this 'the manager needs time' view, manager after manager, for the same thing to happen, when so many other

  • You all remember when I wrote that by appointing Roberto Di Matteo it probably meant more than one season in the Championship and you all know that I believe this season is crucial for the owner because we don't know how he's going to fund a season season. Well, I think there is growing concern that he might not actually be the man and even though he was a calculated

  • Well, it's been a fairly typical Aston Villa week. And I write that because while I was looking forward to this season, thinking we would have a chance of winning the league and for me, football is all about winning, I need to see three wins on the bounce and us dominating games, before I'm going to start to believe it's going to happen. And those wins need to start

  • I've taken a lot of stick from a small group of people on social media the past few weeks, but as soon as they start to see the thing they were arguing against appear right in front of them, they hide in the corner. Last night was no different, after the match and I started to see messages that the manager must be under pressure, I sent out a message

  • I read earlier that we've never lost to Brentford. It's probably true, but what a statement to make on the day of the match when there is a growing amount of unease about where we find ourselves after six games. And while I've written that I don't buy into this 'players need time to gel' line the manager is now using it. And I'm sorry to write this, but that's

  • I didn't engage or Tweet about the match at the weekend because I was confident that we'd win. But when I did engage, to try and find out what people thought, the response was not a surprise. And you know what, six games in and already ten points off the lead, while not really a worry, does give reason for doubt. If you don't doubt. But you've got to have

  • There comes a time in every season when things start to turn around. I hope it's this weekend for us. It's not critical that it is this weekend and I still firmly believe we will finish in one of the two places at the top to see us back in the Premier League at first time of asking, so if it's not this weekend, I'm actually okay with it. I
