When do you reveal that we are actually run by Dong Ellis? Only a villa die hard could inflict this much misery on us.

whats the chances our owners are employed by Dr Tony

For a man so apparently obsessed with “correcting mistakes” Dong den half make a few
Sonic Youth fan. MBV. If you like feedback that much get a job at the council.

A lot of talk about mistakes, & how we can improve them. Hopefully that’s a language issue.

I guess practice makes perfect. We will probably get a lot of practice at making mistakes this season.

Colin Tattum should apply to for a job in North Korea. Got to be better money and it’s essentially the same work.

Our fundamentals last year was built on having a good defence. We’ve let a key part of that go because of not giving a 31 year old a 2 year deal.

Morrison was a leader, a well respected member of the squad, and a solid Championship centre half. Didn’t pull up any trees and wasn’t the greatest on the ball but never let us down. Was also our 3rd top scorer last season.

Enhancing our attacking threat is also going to be somewhat difficult considering we’ve let our 2 most creative players and our best player and top goalscorer go.

I understand Jota and Adams has to go because of our financial situation but the mood around the place would be so much better if we’d have given Morrison a new deal and signed Mahoney for £1m.

I can’t stand the propaganda coming out of the club. Everyone with half a brain cell knows it’s utter fecking bollocks and we’re right back to Lee Clark era square one.

Soz. Don't wash with me. Tell me this again in November.
That was liquid football!

Good points.

Re Morro, I agree, but it’s possible that he was after that big final contract, in which case that could only be somewhere else, given the current cost cutting. If so, I wouldn’t begrudge him that.

These are bad times, really bad. We need to get these owners out, but the HKSE listing makes that so difficult.

In normal circumstances I wouldn’t be that arsed about Morrison going but with the current upheaval, keeping our captain and therefore our first choice back 4 in place would have made a huge difference in my opinion.

I’ve seen people on social media say decent Championship centre halves are easy to find but we managed to spend 3.5m and 25k a week on Roberts who is massively inferior to Morrison so I’m not so sure that is the case nowadays.

The clues were there. Remember there is a company called Dragon Villa involved with our ownership!!

Honestly believe we'll finish bottom of the league.

Yup - I do too.

Tatts isn’t writing these articles, he can’t be, the writing is too poor.

What an utterly pointless release. It’s like a comedy film where a club gets taken over by crazy Chinese owners who know nothing about football.

Up the effing Blues.

Remember the Mel Brooks fillum "The Producers"? Where two bumbling theatre producers deliberately set out to make a loss? Sound familiar?

But it turned out to be a success, against their wishes! We are going up as champions!
