There are times when the workings of the market economy just leave you speechless. Dreadful financials. Dire performance on the field. And the boss's salary quintuples.

Sometimes capitalism is its own worst enemy.

Horrible company

They have dreadful customer service, and treat the staff even worse.

The Guardian ran a series of good articles about conditions inside the Warehouse.

An article on an interesting book, showing the value of football at a lower level to a community

Not the premiership, but in many ways more valuable and important.

40 goals in 36 matches tells its own story. Not one Championship team i have seen this season has any prospect of survival in Premier League. Villa if they get an experienced manager will start warm favourites to come straight back.

so the villa players couldn't take the pressure of a relegation fight, and failed miserably so can't see them handling the pressure of expectation to come back up again at the first attempt

Their results against.mug's league teams this season are mightily impressive

Though it pains me to say it, with a manager who knows nothing about Championship football and a midfield that don't seem to know the meaning of the words "press" or "tackle", I don't think Villa will do very well in the mug's league at all.

Not so sure Simon. Theres the two sides that will have finished above us for a start. The mugs league produced sides like Bournemouth and Watford and look at them go this season. I'm all for banter with the bluenoses but realism is Villa are in a bad place and unless changes are made throughout the club we wont be getting back to the premier league in a hurry. We were in a shocking state in 85/86 when we went down but we managed to get the turrnip, just kidding. Taylor was a strong manager who turned our club around.
