  1. That was bought home to me when reading their forum at the time that they were in the financial mire a couple of summers ago. They they had been on the verge of going bust - a winding up order was imminent from HMRC over unpaid tax - and there were serious and genuine concerns about them breaking ffp as they had already borrowed against their third year of parachute payments. Despite this, when they were "rescued" when they brought in new owners, there were fans immediately talking about how this would enable them to buy the players they needed to gain promotion back to their rightful place in the premier league. There were even comments suggesting that the premier league wanted and needed Villa back. As discussed at length on our ffp thread, the whole ffp issue with Villa is very murky but I think it is reasonably clear that there would have been a serious breach had they not "sold" Villa Park. That they would have breached ffp during the three years that they enjoyed £90m or so of parachute payments, and secured promotion as a result, puts them in a different bracket of financial shithousery from Derby and Wednesday. I think that many fans' resentment of Villa stems from this and that they are where they are now by financial deception and cheating.
  2. Against Leeds I think Swans withstood all the pressure, created virtually nothing and scored with a late break soccer punch. We have been warned!
  3. Is he touchy feely, sensitive able to show his feelings openly and in touch with his feminine side?
  4. They haven;t scored for 25 minutes. However, there is an explanation, as after half an hour Pep told 9 outfield players to go for a long half time break, leaving Sterling on his own. He's performed well defensively but has struggled to break down Watford's 9 man defence.
  5. I also suspect that Swansea won't be sure about our team. It's a fair guess they would have been preparing and setting up for us playing a "big man" up front - even if that was Famara after Afobe's injury. I would imagine we will play a more fluid front 3 which will be different from what they expected.
  6. Our perfect team is mostly in the treatment room.
  7. Would you play them both as a front 2?
