Another planet...
Put your house on Villa getting relegated. We are utterly awful. No redeeming features whatsoever. It's going to be a loooooong season
I predict that a home draw against Huddersfield Town in the FA cup 3rd round in early January will spark a revival. Whether Tim Sherwood is still at the helm is another matter...

If that game was to take place tomorrow you would beat us. We have the unwashed filth from the wrong side of the tracks on Tuesday in the league cup. I have no doubt they will beat us. Sherwood will still be here I'm sure but only because we can't afford to pay him off

You did fall away badly after reaching The Cup Final last season , this current form seems to be a continuation of that rapid descent. For you and SS4 hopefully it can be arrested before it's to late. :lol:

Winchester City 0...Cinderford Town 0 (Bentley m/pen 45; Knott s/o 45)

Winchester City slip to fifth in the league after a disappointing draw and Swindon Supermarine winning against league leaders North Leigh. Warren Bentley missed a penalty just before half time and City bombarded the Cinderford goal in the second half but couldn't get that final ball.

Darlington 2....Hyde United 3

After our totally unexpected win at Darlington last week in the FA Cup qualifying round, I really feared that Darlington would extract a suitable revenge on Hyde United in this league match fixture, but amazingly, thanks to a Scott Spencer hat-trick with the winner being scored very late in the game, another Evo Stik Premier League "Mission Impossible" result came true.

full credit to Hyde who took advantage of our inability to defend simple positions. We fought back to 2-2 ( no doubt after a half time rocket!) and then promptly, having almost extracted a draw form the jaws of defeat, coated ourselves in ketchup to ensure we were easy to swallow and jumped back into the jaws with a terrible piece of defending in stoppage time.

The only good thing is that teams around us also lost so the posistion remains the same but our defendinf at present looks diodgy to say the least.

Looks like Hyde might be our bogie team!

The cup final that they didn't turn up too.

Quite honestly I think Sherwood is out of his depth.

Anyone for Big Sam?

When I saw Villa on the last day of last season I said "Sherwood won't be there this time next year"

I still think he will not be there for the whole campaign.

As for relegation - I'd have to consider Sunderland as early favourites.

... and the longer "the wally with the brolly" stays on, their Tyneside chums too.

I quite like McClaren, but boy did he mess Derby up last season.

He must so regret not just getting wet on the touchline at Wembley:D

It is. And it was a disgraceful tackle.

I feel very sorry for Luke Shaw.

As for Manchester United, given their then manager rang up Ryan Shawcross to make sure he was OK after almost destroying Aaron Ramsey's career with a similar "tackle", I guess that's karma repaying them nicely.
That tackle on Luke Shaw divides opinion, hard but fair I thought

If you want to stay up then he is your guy, just expect to pay through the nose to get him. The crazy way that West Ham just switched off after reaching 40 points last season was ridiculous though.

The enfant terrible of Chelsea, Diego Costa, has now been retrospectively charged with violent conduct by the Football Association in the match against Arsenal after the viewing of video evidence that apparently showed events that were claimed not to have been fully seen by the match officials.

Evo-Stik Premier League....Monday night match

Hyde United 7....Stamford 1

Well, something must have occurred over recent days at Hyde United because Hyde United have finally won their first HOME league match of the season last night and I suppose if you are going to finally win at home, what better than doing so with a resounding scoreline. This is their best home result since they beat Woking 7-0 at home in their first season in the Conference Premiership, before their best seven players all went off to play for Football League clubs.

Scott Spencer scored yet another hat trick, to follow on from the one he scored away at Darlington at the weekend.

And lets not forget my beloved Hull United who have not lost a game all season and are under the leadership of former Hull City players Curtis Woodhouse and Ian Ashbee. A great team actually, manager and assistant manager sometimes end up propping up the club bar with me! Not just them, but the players, coaching staff and club officials are great to talk to and are very friendly... The only league game we have not won was called off due to floodlight failure...

When they played their 3rd game of the season at Pennistone, it was an evening kick off and I was the last Hull United fan out the Pennistone bar along with the players. By the time we left and the players were going to their cars, it was raining hard which did not bode well for me attempting to catch the last from there to Huddersfield to catch the overnight Megabus service back to Hull. As I was passing through the gates, one of the cars stopped and the front passenger window rolled down and one of the players asked what I was doing. When I replied that I was going to the train station, the rear passenger door on the left was opened and I was pulled inside and was given a lift back to my house by the driver who was also Hull United's goalkeeper, Phil Dobson. When I asked them why they replied with "You're our number one fan (long story there) and if you can scrape together the money to come to away matches, we're not leaving you to get home in the p*****g rain"

You wouldn't get that with Chelski or Man City

We will have to have a look at that lad ;)

Darlo went top of the Evo Stick Premier table last night with a fighting draw at Ilkeston having fallen behind and then been reduced to 10 men. Crisis? What Crisis!

( it wont last!)

Robert Lewandowski is as the cliche says "on fire"

GOAL - Bayern Munich 5-1 Wolfsburg
Robert Lewandowski (60 mins)
What on earth is happening? I was trying to tell you what's happened elsewhere but instead my FIFTH ENTRY IN A ROW is a Robert Lewandowski goal. And this is his best yet. Mario Gotze crosses in from the right and the Pole with a flying acrobatic volley smashes it past Diego Benaglio.

One of the most remarkable striking displays I've seen in my life. Douglas Costa crosses in from the left and there's Robert Lewandowski AGAIN! The Pole just volleys the ball home with ease from 12 yards out.

This is a striking masterclass. I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this. Robert Lewandowski, on at half-time, has scored three goals across three minutes and 22 seconds.

The Pole is found by Mario Gotze. His first shot hits the post, his second is saved by Diego Benaglio but he gets a third effort and guides it home.

And with that the game is surely over.

Unbelievable. Before I could even tell you about that goal, Robert Lewandowski has absolutely smashed in a second from 25 yards. What a strike. What a substitution. What a game.

Robert Lewandowski has been on the pitch six minutes and he's levelled it up from close range.

Dover Athletic win 5-2 at Eastleigh in the Conference - I'll take that.

It'll probably mean we are awful in the live BT Sport game Friday night though.

Just look at what Premiership does to you. I had no idea it was League Cup night when a few years back I would have been glued to the computer if not there myself.

Yep. Tonight and tomorrow. To be honest I only care because we were playing Blues.

Bournemouth are 2-1 up in ET

He has been found guilty as charged and has been given a three match ban.

Sunderland were woeful tonight, City had the game wrapped up before half time then took their foot off the gas. Nice to see Pellegrini giving some of the kids a run out, the standout was the first team debut of George Evans, local Cheadle lad who's been with MCFC since the U8s. That is pretty amazing to see a kid who's now played at every level in the City system.

What have Aston Villa and Birmingham City got in common?


They have both lost their latest cup final

The City is, will always be and always has been, ours
Now go back to your hovels you unwashed layabouts and try not to darken our door again

Sherwood got the tactics wrong in the first half and you were lucky not to go in behind ;)

He looked quality when he was at Scunthorpe United on loan not so long back.
