    Don't think I can say anything about Wesley that I haven't already said in the transfer rumour thread!

    Do you reckon Deano's had to pay for AVTV? :LOL:

    The Summer 2021 Transfer Rumour Thread

    I think we agree on spending big money as backups, as I don't think we're there as a club yet anyway, and you genuinely won't hear me criticising Smith giving young players a go in the team. I was impressed with a lot of the players who played yesterday for example, and there seems to be a lot...

    The Summer 2021 Transfer Rumour Thread

    More to do with how we can’t guarantee how he’ll recover from such a serious and long-term injury than tonight, but he never looked brilliant beforehand either! If we’re serious about breaking the top 6 we need better than Wesley and Davis as backups.

    The Summer 2021 Transfer Rumour Thread

    Just been reading an article in The Athletic about players available on a free and honestly I'd happily take on Andre Ayew as a backup striker considering he wouldn't cost us a fee. Would offer more than Wesley and Davis goal-scoring-wise as well I think.

    Coronavirus

    I've just tried to reason with someone on Twitter (never a good idea I know) about why they won't take the vaccine. Just by laying out the evidence, someone I understood to be perfectly reasonable previously suddenly bursts into a tirade of "you're patronising, you're ignorant, why do you think...

    I have some sympathy with how you're feeling CDX but... Not if your loyalty is to logic, reason and evidence!

    Disappointed to see that the vaccine take-up in Birmingham is below the national average:

    Coronavirus

    Re vaccine effectiveness. The last time the UK reported 51k cases was 7th Jan. The number in hospital that day? 32,583. The number in hospital today is 3,964. Deaths follow a similar pattern. 994 on 7th Jan. 49 today. Says all you need to know really. EDIT: Coincidentally 3,964 is 12% of...

    The Summer 2021 Transfer Rumour Thread

    Would be a decent option but we'd need to get Kalinic out of the door first I'd think!

    2021/22 Season Tickets on Sale Now

    I can't understand why the phone lines have been so busy. How can people be so sure they want to relocate? It's been so long I'm not 100% sure I can even remember what the view from my seat is like! Or maybe that's part of it?

    Credit cards

    Lol no worries, I just wanted to hear everyone's opinions/experiences. This was probably a bad day to make this thread in hindsight!

    Credit cards

    I wasn't going to use it Mike, except to pay off my existing balance! I got that one from MSE. How come it sets off alarm bells? Is it a bad deal? I've looked at the small print and it doesn't sound dodgy - got my dad to have a look earlier as well and he can only get 9 months!

    Credit cards

    Thanks everyone, I think what I'll do is have a look in more detail about what kind of deals I can get but I know I'll need to be careful about applying because I don't want to cause myself any problems. Based on what I think I'll be able to get so far, the best deal I've been able to find up...

    Credit cards

    I've got a bit of a dilemma with how to manage my credit and I would appreciate any advice that you guys have! I've had a credit builder card ever since I left uni. The terms were terrible (£500 limit and 34.9% interest) but it was all I could get at the time and I wanted to be sensible and get...

    Kappa Innit

    Yeah I've also found Villa's kits in recent years to be of poor quality (apart from last year's away shirt), especially for the price. The fit isn't ideal either, and I'm not even classed as overweight! Got the England kit with free Grealish printing for the Euros. Could totally understand why...

    Coronavirus

    Sorry guys but I need to go on a bit of a rant, which I realise might not sit well with some people but I need to get this off my chest! There's been a COVID outbreak at my mom and dad's work, so they're shut now until the 12th. Not hugely worried so far, as everyone in the house has been...

    Found that clip a bit quick didn't you Mike? ;) It's OK, the pandemic is a good excuse to live vicariously through them, I wish I was in an all-expenses paid villa trying to cop off with good looking girls!
