Anyone else fed up with this lot already?

My in laws are villa and for the past three years they've hardly mentioned football. This last week it's been horrendous.

Top six finish, spent loads of money etc.

I hope that Smith isn't what they think he is and takes them down.

Unfortunately mate I just can’t see there not being 3 worse teams then villa . Think they will be bottom half but I can’t see them going down . Hope I’m wrong though

12th would be a very good season for us first season back up and would give us the opportunity to stabilise and build on it.

Not sure what Villa fans you've seen or heard say we're going to finish much higher than that but every club has their lunatics. I believe we could finish anywhere between 12th-17th depending on how well we gel and this could come back to bite me but I don't think we'll go down. Trust me though that the majority of us would be happy to stay up this season and anything else is a bonus. Not saying we're going to be world beaters though but outside of the top 8/9 teams there is very little separating the rest and there are a lot of poor sides.

There has been a lot of "They're doing a Fulham" banded about but our buys seem more sensible and have more thought behind them. We've kept together our loan players and replaced players that left with better players like Trezeguet for Adomah, Luiz for Whelan etc.

Whatever happens, and I'm sure there will be a few heavy defeats along the way, I think we will try to attack and play good football. I'd much rather see that than the likes of Brighton last season who played with 10 defenders and were scared to cross the halfway line.
First off you seem half-decent unlike most of your clan probably because you're a blackcountry lad!
I despise vile with every fibre of my being but haven't a clue who you have signed or how good they might be as long as you don't win anything and lose more than you win you can finish as high as eighth matters not, good luck!

I'm never not fed up with them. They've been ridiculously vocal on social media all summer - big contrast to 12 months ago (I wonder why!) and it's beyond tragic how they think that they'll going to be doing all sorts when they don't have a good enough strike force for that level.

Can't see to see the bedsheets out in October!  :D

I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere and I haven't checked the stats for myself. But Little Miss Girlish has apparently been on the losing side for Aston Villa on nineteen consecutive occasions spread over three Prem' seasons. That's not nineteen Prem' Villa defeats in a row, just his appearances in a Villa shirt in the Prem' which have ended in defeat. This is reportedly the longest losing streak of any professional footballer in the history of the Prem'. The bloke's a Jonah! Long may that run continue  8) .
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.

Very difficult on yesterdays evidence to see where they get enough goals from to avoid struggling. Also can't see a system with 3up front plus Greasy and McGinn will work in Prem they will get run all over as per second goal yesterday however hope Smith continues with this system to try and prove me wrong as it will all end in cabbages (hopefully !!) 8) 8)

Like half of the league,loosing to Tottenham wont get you relegated. Loosing to teams that may finish around you, will

Good point
Would add that the morale after the way they lost to Tottenham will help send them down
Really need Bournemouth to spank them

Personally, I find this stat you found to be the most astonishing, unbelievable little factoid. I know they were pretty bad & lost a lot of games those last couple years before they went down but c-mon the odds of this happening have to be pretty long. To not have been involved in at least a scrappy draw at least once during this time that spans over three separate Premier League seasons is mind blowing. A Jonah indeed, it’s been the equivalent to half of a Prem. League season since you have gotten a single point from a match he’s been involved in.......you gotta toss um!! But as you say hope they don’t and long may that run of bad luck continue!!

Can we get them to pair him with Nigel Quasie?

Not going to judge Villa till I see them vs some of the sides mid table and below. Their defence looked quite solid until the final 10 mins of the game and while i've doubts over their strike force, they have a ton of interesting creative midfielders who could shoulder the goal scoring burden.

As for the Grealish stat, I think Bale had a similar statistic at Spurs a few years ago, just before he went on the run that saw him establish himself as one of the nest players in the world. Grealish will be a prem player.

I looked at their team today and cannot understand where  £125 M has been spent unless there’s a major improvement in results (pray not) I agree that he will be toast

I live in Lancashire and start of each season my mates and I have a flutter on the three to go down from the Prem, the three to go back up and Albion's finishing position.

One of my mates, a Blackpool supporter, has Wolves and Villa in the relegation spots. Needless to say he has shot up in my mates league. Even though I think he will be wrong.

Dingles were 38/1 on betfair for relegation yesterday. It would of been rude not to stick £2.

Villa were 6/4. So also had £2 on them  ;D

I think they have confused the Champions League with the Championship.....they will very likely qualify for the latter ;D
