    I could put on one hand the number of games where the result would have been different if he wasn't on the pitch. I guess that is the ultimate measure of any footballer - for good or bad - and he has little to offer on that metric.

    Much under rated keeper, Brian Stephenson and Jim Coombes being two more from that time.
    But enough seriousness. Rimmer was injured in Villa's European Cup win, replaced by Nigel Spink.
    Two of the best anagrams in football. Nigel's Pink is an anagram of Nigel Spink. Also Julian's Dick is an anagram of Julian Dicks. Yup, it's true.

    BaaLocks got a reaction from Colm in The Loanee Update Thread 18/19   
    Made BBC side of the week, playing alongside Craig Halkett (of course, I'm not allowed to mention the rumour that we are interested in the transfer of him to Derby as the Transfer Rumour section is apparently actually for Transfer Confirmed Rumours, which basically means it is Transfers I guess). Anyway, back on topic, kind words about Lowe here

    I'm with you all the way to the last sentence - cost you a 'Like' I'm afraid 🙂 - but besides that exactly right. It's all too easy to blame the defence but when it has been a sloppy pass that has given away possession and turned your whole team on it's heels then it's hardly surprising if the defence is not lined up in training ground formation. Johnson and (sorry!) Mount were prime culprits for this at Loftus Road.

    BaaLocks got a reaction from therealhantsram in Villa Appoint Dean Smith and John Terry   
    It's all a bit of a crap shoot really - three years ago I would have put my (rather burdensome) mortgage on Warburton going on to do great things. Five years ago I would have said Mourinho was perfect for United. Up to Lampard I would have said that the book of 'great players to great managers' is a very short read - I'm not saying he's earned the tag of great by any means but just that it is going a lot better than I could have imagined.
    There are very few managers who are adept at turning around big failing clubs - strangely they've just got rid of one of them and in Pulis and Warnock two of the others are busy. Probably the best they could have found from a management perspective, the Terry bit feels like a strange one - what is the point, to groom him to replace Deano, why would they do that? To build him up to go and manage on his own? I don't get that bit - feels a bit weird and I honestly don't see Terry outlasting Smith there. He'll be off by the end of next season.

    Ramfact #252: The manager of Ramsden's tavern bought John Robson's house off him when he moved to Villa.
    How do I know? Coz it was my next door neighbour. The chances today of a restaurant manager being able to afford to buy the house of a league winning footballer, or me being able to afford the house next door - are both somewhat slim.

    Not at all, it is undoubtedly physical, violent and bloody but don't ever let that draw the conclusion that it is without skill, training and dedication. All these guys are multiple black belts with incredible application to their art.

    Ever? Well Curtains, as someone relatively new to this forum I have to say I don't quite understand why people suggest you are so downbeat all the time. You've certainly turned it up to eleven there.
