He has been at the club since August, how come Big Dave and Jones didn't think to hand him a towel before now?

Don't think they've got outside their own penalty box let alone half. Over 700 mins without a goal.
As I recall Norwich fans hated Hughtons negative football in the end and blamed him for their relegation.

Listening to BBC WM yesterday, Paul Franks stated that we didn’t sign Mings because we couldn’t guarantee him first team football. Anyone think this could be true?

IMO Mings would have made a back 3 work better:

Dawson - Hegazi - Mings ?

Personally I think our thinking in January became muddled - hence the signings of Murphy and Montero. Surely prioritising Mings over Montero would have been more beneficial?

I would think Rotherham will sell out as it's last chance saloon for them. 

I would expect a near sell-out.

  Slaying the Villa hoodoo once and for all
Posted by: Only one real Albion - 04-23-2019, 03:31 PM - Forum: WBAUnofficial - Replies (14)

Like many on here I'm old enough to recall us locking horns with Villa going back to the 70s. Those memories through the years are not without scars.
Aside of some horrible league encounters, we've lost a few cup games too, although I do think we beat them in a League Cup game in the mid 80s?
During the 70s/up to mid 80s they were a hoodoo club, as we were very much their equals, but they just seemed to get the better. 86 onwards, the seldom we met was not about hoodoos, they were just way better as a club with Prem money whilst we scratched by- we'd moved to separate universes. The 98 cup hiding at Villa Park a particularly low point in the dark years.
What is notable though is we've been their equals since 2010 when we came back from the yoyo years and stabilised.
In that time we've generally finished above them, and we've given as good as we have got on the pitch, with a few wins at Villa Park, which we achieved only once in the glorious 76-86 spell.
So historically we have nothing to fear.
What we have is an opportunity to actually create a truly memorable Villa encounter. If it goes wrong, we can blame the hoodoo, which stats don't tie in with.
I think talking ourselves down may be no bad thing as I'm sure Shan and the players not saddled by fans baggage and will care not a jot.
