Transfer Window Poll Results

Transfer Window Poll Results

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Lions82,

What do you think of Villa's transfer activity this summer?

The results were as follows:

Ok, expected better (60%)
We didn't sign anyone worth buying (13%)
Fabulous, we have signed some real quality (11%)
Poor, what is MON doing? (10%)
Good, just what I wanted (4%)
Useless (2%)

Hopefully we'll be able to draw a line under the transfer window saga now and look forward to the January one when hopefully we'll be a top six team and maybe more active with Randy's dollars!

No more hoping Fear please........MON will bring in who he thinks can do the job, be a £1m player such as Maloney or a £9m player such as Young, if the shoe fits Fear......so lets just let the manager, manage....the players, play....and us supporters, support....and we should do fine....UTV

fans always do support astonmilan, some in different ways, but footie talk is part of footie, do you think the players don't do the same? Gossip in the game is worse than us lot on the internet sites! Nice to be moving on and not talking about the transfers now, well not until October anyway! lol

Yeah astonmilan lets all stop talking about the players and how the Club is being run. In a perfect world that would be great but the only way to get change is to continually challenge the Club to do better and let them know where improvements can be made. Things are going ok at Villa astonmilan but lets not bury our heads in the sand like you want us to do and shut up and put up. Telling someone all the time they are wonderful and great will not achieve results, highlighting the failings and where improvements can be made will. Anyway, what else would I do with myself if I can’t come on vital villa everyday… talk to my missus? I think not :-)

Fear there were six so called Villa fans sat behind me yesterday.....all they could keep saying was that Gabby was a lightweight t**t, Carew was a plank, Bouma was a fat idiot and that Reo-Coker needed to get some bottle !!! I turned round a few times and stared astonishingly at them and the one said to me 'how the **** are we ever going to get anywhere with this p***k in charge and these half wits?' ...........there was a Chelsea fan in front of us with his two very young daughters, who turned round and looked absolutely disgusted. I spoke to him at half time and explained that he was only in the stand for his daughters safety. He asked me 'how many of your lot are like that?' I replied 'too many'. When we scored it was totally different, the 'half wits' as he called them were brilliant, best team in the world. At the end of the game the Chelsea guy shook my hand and said 'fair play, keep playing like that and you'll get back to where you belong', I wished him a safe journey home. I don't like away fans in our stands, but the morons behind me made me feel ashamed, and gives us a pathetic image to other supporters. It couldn't spoil my day to be honest but I really felt like spoiling theirs. So I hope for the next home games propper supporters who don't just come to watch the big boys.

And Hoss, don't know where you've been for the last 20 years, but our club has had its head buried in the sand for too long, its finally getting somewhere after only 13 months.....a long long way to go yet, but its looking good.

astonmilan, I haven't been sunning myself in Italy like some but I have been a ST holder for more years than I can remember. The fans have a right to their say and for once the Club is listening to them and taking action. We shouldn't be just sitting back and letting the manager manage etc... we need to make our voice heard otherwise the changes won't be made.

astonmilan, there are pillocks in every crowd mate, always made it my policy to not concern myself with idiots in life. I don't think Villa are alone in having these twerps though, do you? Always nice to see a manager and players ram down the words of criticism back though, that is all anyone can ask really. Used to have a couple of blokes sit behind me, they would slate Hendrie the whole game, as soon as he came off they'd wait a few minutes, then it would be exactly the same stuff but aimed at Angel. Does sometimes make you wonder if these people really are supporters. When they are on the pitch in the shirt, they should never have to take the abuse, I think criticism etc at all other times is fine but not when they are playing ffs!

So for the last 25 years the club has listened to the fans ??? yeah right, of cause they did. They are much better now, because they have much better experience in marketing. As long as the results come off the pitch things go fine, if the results don't go well then the board sack the manager, so if you think you have a say in things you are very mistaken. Fans can put pressure on a team whilst its playing, can put pressure on the board sometimes, but generaly they just go with how they want to run it. The catering will never get better, supporters groups just form so they feel important in life.........the rest of us have a beer or two watch the match have another beer or two and discuss the in and outs at the bar. We support it, they own it. And don't know if you've ever been to Milan Hoss.......its usually colder than Birmingham mate...except when Kaka scores.....but thats a different kettle of fish for now.

Constructive critism.....which to be fair you get on hear from the likes of Hoss, Voice of the holte etc......is fine but slagging off your own team is a joke.....if I thought I could give these lads a tap and not get thrown out I would have believe me......if they play crap, let them know, but no personal abuse..
