  1. What you'd give to see an Elliott bullet header or a Muzzy long range volley/ shot again.
  2. When was the first bit written? Kasper hasn't actually used the Schmeichel name to get anything really, he's be on loan at Bury, Falkirk, Coventry, Cardiff, went to Notts County and spent half a decade in the Football League before promotion with us. He's worked his way up and deserves everything he's got.
  3. I get what you're saying. FFP in the Football League is required to stop clubs spending what they haven't got- the wage bills to income/ turnover is eye-watering at some teams. But at that level, the idea of the status quo of the established elite remaining there and stopping others does appear to have some merit.
  4. Let's win our last 4 and not worry about it, best way to deal with it.
  5. The issue in recent games like Man City and Brighton was that VAR didn't look at three penalties we should've had, whilst one was given against us. No doubt VAR disallowed goals that would normally have stood earlier this season but over the past 8/9 games VAR hasn't intervened enough in our case.
  6. I said it in the Premier League thread that I do wonder if referees aren't keen on calling out colleagues too often on mistakes they make. I'm sure we've been in positions at work where colleagues have made errors, it may become a bigger issue and reputations are gained and you aren't keen on continually pointing them out. It could be time for independent people to take charge of the video side of it.
  7. A league of any substance would welcome variety, unpredictability, intrigue. For some reason the media think we want the status quo. Yes, Man United and Liverpool will always grab the headlines in the main but Sheffield United or Burnley possibly winning the title, as we did, would bring in a whole new audience.
  8. The issue with VAR is that I'm not sure referees want to keep overturning decisions. They all know each other and if one gets a reputation for having several decisions changed then that becomes a story, it gets into the mind and I'm sure most of the refs are friends- is it time to have independent, outside workers doing the video side of things?
  9. Jon Moss is a good referee.
  10. I don't know, a couple of wins might be enough to put us above Chelsea with their run-in.
  11. Maybe not, the Man City game was the worst with us having two clear penalties turned down and theirs being given. Just have to hope we can go all out in the last four.
  12. Oh I don't deny we've suffered recently with the imbalance of handball decisions and soft fouls in the box either being given or not. But the points about our performances against Norwich twice, Watford, Brighton being wasted opportunities is also relevant. On another point, how poor do Aston Villa generally look? A serious amount of money spent and they seem to offer so little at either end of the pitch. Wonder if they regret not changing manager a few months back?
  13. If we miss out on the Champions League it is our own fault, we had a big enough lead to be comfortable ourselves. But that decision tonight was huge- Villa were on top but their confidence is fragile and that wrecked it. Man United will go on to win, and probably would've anyway, hopefully they'll pull Moss to one side after this season and tell him to pack it in. He's not good enough as a referee at this level. And VAR taking roughly two looks at it is ridiculous.
  14. Three Man United pundits on the broadcast. None from Aston Villa. We used to have the option of Fanzone, you get it whatever now.
  15. Game was done anyway, just a question of how many they'll get now.
