Part of the problem JPA, how can the team gel if he doesn't build a structure ?

4 days rest after tonight - madness to jumble it

Commentators apparently say that this was Boro's under 23/ 3rd team.... look on the bright side, we played the u23 during the week and lost 4-1 ... losing 2-0 tonight is progressing!!
3 games against them at different levels and we ended up with 10 men each game. We got more red cards than goals!!

Well there was nothing in it until their penalty. 2 sides treating the game as a pre season friendly with no pace or intensity to it. I said to my lad at half time it will be o-o after extra time and we will be there until 11 o'clock with the penalty shoot out.

Anyway it proved one thing that Elphick is a total liabilty . Stupid tackle out be the touchline for the first yellow and hopelessly out of position which caused him to commit the foul for the penalty and second yellow.If say Terry got suspended and Chester picked up an injury then we would seriously be up the creek without a paddle. I would play Samba on his own.

Chill out, Brucie can dust down his boots. He's probably as quick as any of our CBs even now

Poor first half, second half got worse.

Best bit about the match, other than not being bothered by sirdennis at half time , was the drive home.

The cup is so devalued now it is sad really.

They should be charging £5 for that at most and be honest about not taking it at all seriously - don't just mean Villa either.

What?. We are losing ?.
Right.
Time to revert to Vital villa losing mode

Bruce out, the potato blue nose twat, Wyness out. Why did we sign John Terry. We are going down, get Sherwood back. Get a young and hungry manager in. Play the kids but if we lose why the fcuk did he pick the kids?. Should've played the first team , they won't be tired its bollox no one gets tired and shouldnt need to be saved for two league games in 4 days coming up.



Yes let's all keep quiet and pretend everything is just dandy :3:



Far from being fine and dandy and no one, me included, has suggested it. Perspective is needed in losing this game just as much as in beating Barnsley on Saturday.


You often remind me of a frustrated Moderator unable to tolerate opinions that differ from your own!


Rubbish, total rubbish.

I tolerate peoples opinion. But if I disagree with something I will say so. Not once on here have I said that my opinion is gospel and that others are not entitled to. Out of order.

Hopefully tonight's events will make one or two realise that we have not, in fact, got a squad which should be walking this League, as has been suggested.

At best, our 'best' XI has shown one or two glimpses, nothing more. We still need to go on a winning run to banish the 'mass hysteria' (© Steve Bruce 2017) and raise any hopes of a promotion push.

Tonight, unfortunately, was never going to contribute towards that ambition. What it has shown is just how far Bruce (or whoever) has to go to build a fully rounded and talented squad capable of winning 30-odd games and scoring 90-odd goals.

Very sad, considering this is 'our' cup, in terms of us having a very presentable record in this tournament.

C'est la vie. We'll have forgotten all about this when John Terry, not involved in the run in due to injury/suspension/shagging a team mate's wife* (delete as appropriate), dresses up in his Villa kit to come on and collect the Championship trophy in May

Clearly, people having a different opinion from you bothers you more than you let on otherwise you wouldn't go to the lengths of writing all that little lot down. Maybe I should have included sarcasm as well because that's a theme you also use.

Well that's 90 minutes of my life which I'll never get back. Total dross from start to finish. Elphick....body language from the start was poor, arguing with Bruce half way through the first half, rash challenge, half an hour late for his first yellow then lack of pace exposing him in the second half leading to his second.....game over! Kids did ok but all in all just mind numbingly dull. Just another point, Micah Richards looks about 3 stone overweight.....and how much is he on....50 grand a week....now out of the cup....probably be 6 stone overweight by the time he's picked again as an FA Cup sub after the Christmas festivities! Sure he ain't too bothered however with another £800,000+ earned by then.....hard life eh?!

I haven't seen the game but the result suggests that our talent pool isn't very deep.

TBF Dan he's not had the chance to play off Davis really . Hogan's touch is too poor to play up on his own . Really has been a shadow of the player people told me he was . He won't suit our hoof ball game , never in a million years . He's the playground goal hanger , not a leader of the line .


Agreed, at Brentford they were setup to exploit him but Bruce seems to do his own thing and force guys into it.

We've a few players who we know will excel in certain areas but not others, it goes back to buying guys and having a plan second. When obviously there should have been a plan and then the guys to fit into it. Hogan seems to be the epitome of this issue we don't have the players to support him or maximise his ability.

Kodjia is a bit of a one man band he could do damage with a cohesive unit behind him and Davis similarly can hold his own long enough to make up for the shambles behind him. Hogan is a little like Bent if you can't support him he becomes a luxury (at best and liability at worst).

Or Bruce knows that the cups are just a distraction from the real task this season.

@TonyIncenzo

"If managers are going to field reserve teams in the League Cup, how about reserve team prices: £5 for adults, kids free. Fill the stadiums!"

I couldn't agree more with that and we would have seen more than the 11,197 brave souls who actually did turn up.

Mind you after nearly 5 hours without seeing a Villa goal at Villa Park, you deserve a medal for watching such dross.
