Cradle of Filth, I think I mentioned them to you before base on the lyrics in your profile

It is indeed...... ;D

I got into these quite late but absolutely love them. The originals have reformed and I am contemplating a quick trip stateside to see them.
What have we done?
And what have we become
In this distance from our Mother
From the gates of late Eden?

not my thing so don’t know much about them but it’s a famous logo, kinda like grateful dead (knowing the logo, not the bands being similar)

As an aside to my ongoing merriment over his run of Prem' defeats (20 and counting) I think Greasy Jack's a decent player and feel there's much more to come from him. Detestable traits and sides to his game such as diving and moaning aside he knows how to play football and should have a good career. He has good movement off the ball, good vision, he's technically sound and has provided decent chances this season which haven't been converted. Could do with attending a falls clinic for those chronic issues with balance and still a Viler tw@t at heart though. Begrudging acknowledgement that Villa have an improving asset on their hands. The w@nkers.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Sadly Dan you are right. He is a good player and with the right coach and club could be something quite special. This year in the Premier league will do him no harm whatsoever.

Still cant stand him though.........

Agreed, levels.

And a transfer ban for Chelsea, oops.

I kind of agree - he could easily end up at somewhere like Spurs/Liverpool and flourish.
At the same time I remember there was also once a lot of hope on Andros Townsend who turned out to be a solid PL player and nothing more, hopefully Grealish is no better.

Grealish is like a downgraded version of Wilshere, at his best perhaps capable of featuring for a mid-table Prem side, but nothing more. Along with McGinn they are their two best players, which I fancy simply won't be enough to save them from the drop.

Grealish is a flat track bully. Effective in the Championship where he finds it more comfortable but doesn't affect games in the Premier League, he's not brave enough on the ball for a start. If you're the type of player he is you have to make things happen and have a major influence on games, he doesn't do that.

Much as I hate to say it, there is a footballer in her.

It's the close ball control that draws fouls, hence my comparison the Hazard,but I should have made clear and clarified I don't think he is anywhere near the quality of Hazard, but who knows, with a good coach and better players round him, he might event break his losing sequence  :D :o 8)

“Flat track bully” is a weird phrase?

He’s ok at football,nothing special,but not crap.
He won’t have enough to keep them up and it won’t be long before their global fan base turns

it's a cricket phrase, a batsmen who can get alot of runs when the ground is flat and the bounce is predictable and easy, but later they are shown up against better players when the ground roughens up and reaction and skill are more important.

A better player wouldn't always be looking for a foul with their back to goal. They would look to beat their man more often, stay on their feet and drive at the opposition to open up spaces.

Too often Jack takes the easy option of winning a free kick. Decent footballer who stands out in the championship but just an average player in that league.

Been saying it for a few years now I’d take James Maddison every day of the week over Grealish, he’l score & assist more than the greasy one this season whilst practically been 2 years younger. I’d also take McGinn over Grealish given the choice.

Saw a Villa fan on twitter mention they should get rid of Smith if they lose this weekend and target Mourinho as he is capable of taking that squad to a top 6 finish.  :o

And they wonder why many people detest them.

Just asked a vile fan at work who the best player in their team is. He said McGinn.

So let me get this right, you have just spent £125m on players and you have not bought anyone better than a player you had in your team last year?

I've said this all along. £26.5million on Mings is absolute madness. He was there last season so no improvement made. They've signed Wesley to replace Abraham and he's probably no better. £22 million or whatever it was so that's the best part of £50 million spent and no improvement. Matt Target £14 million on a distinctly average left back. Konsa from Brentford for £12m, when we signed Ajayi for £1.5m - £2m. Some of the business they've done is absolutely shocking.
