Spot on, Achilles.
The problem is that instead of things being more exciting we may end up with Formula yawn again, as nobody takes any risks and all the drivers end up nursing their cars to the finish.
I'm hoping that's not the case but I have a feeling we're going in the wrong direction again. It can be interesting to see a good strategy paying off (it has certainly worked a few times for Button), but it's far more exciting to see drivers driving like mad and sod the tyres/consumption.

Achillies - I didn't mean it to sound that way. I totally agree with you that we human beings are that way. There are so many awful things going on and this will be just another one of them in a few weeks or months.
I just wanted to say that F1 isn't really something that cheers up the masses.

Time will tell, Achilles. No point in talking about it in the next few weeks or months while it's all about people survivng (or not).
I agree that something will be needed to take people's minds off things after this once in a lifetime (or even rarer) catastrophe, but I don't think F1 is a worthy event.

Agreed that Albrighton is a brilliant player but we can't afford to lose Ashley Young and his experience for about 10 million (which is the number that's being talked about).
As for what players we are missing - we looked like we were missing a striker or two. Now we have a striker, but we need a whole new defence.
Looks like a foregone conclusion to me, and how can you blame him while we have a manager who's determined to get us relegated.
One of the most exciting players we've had at Villa Park for years in my opinion. We would (will) really miss him. Let's just hope Man City don't make a move and end what could be a brilliant career.

I can't believe Houllier is experimenting while we're a point or two away from relegation.
He has to play the strongest team we have in every game, and something is wrong with the tactics if we keep letting in so many goals.
All his long term plans will be worth nothing if we aren't in the premiership next year.

I'm not trying to be a pessimist when I say that Villa are good candidates for the drop. Of all the managers out there we have the most idiotic, incapable one.
He's still talking about everything but what he should be talking about, namely why we can't keep the ball out of our net and what tactics to play to save our ar$es.
That's why I'm sure the Blues will stay up. They have a manager with eyes and a brain.

My opinion is that we don't need the race at all and I would love to see Bernie lose some money.
There are too many races and most definitely too many races on boring circuits with no tradition or real fans. I won't be crying if it doesn't work out.

Moving abroad again Mike:-)
Actually that reminds me of when I was 10 and in the cubs. We went to the Isle of WIght and a lady in a shop asked me where I was from.
"England" - I proudly replied.
I think they eventually called an ambulance.................

I think there were too many combinations of the letters c f k and u in there.
A shame - I think everyone had a chance to get to let off steam.
I think Houllier believed the team he fielded was good enough to do the job. I mean how could we fail with Heskey leading the attack?
Avez-vous a clue, Monsieur 'Ou?

The only thing in there that is too stupid for Bernie to think about doing is
"give to charities"

FL - I think you got that wrong.
"before realising overnight what an insane idea it was"
"before realising............how insane he was".
Problem is that his nurse hasn't dared to tell him yet.

Sid and Achilles - I wish I shared your confidence in the fact that Bernie just says things like this to get the press going and keep things in the news.
I'm sure he is absolutely serious.
- probablygraham probablygraham Mar 3, 2011 03:16 Flag
Slicks with spikes, kinetic energy produced by the chattering of the drivers' teeth, seal breathing holes randomly appearing in the braking zones. Definitely has potential.
So Bernie wants to have artificial rain showers to make things more exciting.
How about artificial people running across the track and getting run over (starting withBernie himself of course), or police cars stopping cars for infringements, or the odd earthquake or tornado?
Pathetic, Bernie. Grow up.

I'm sure Dan hibernates.
You get an extra 2 weeks winter sleep this year Dan, so you can go back to sleep until Oz comes around :-)

Well done to you bluenoses from a Villa fan (sorry to stink the place out for you).
You didn't just win it, you really deserved it.
Since you don't have a trophy cabinet, please scratch out the name and leave the cup in ours :-)
By the way, can we please have your manager because I'm sick of the snail eating one we've got.

I don't remember the mechanics either. I just thought it fit in nicely with the hay bales.
To be remembered forever for the Gurney flap and the Gurney bump in the GT40's roof, oldcanuck. I was disappointed to see they never carried on the tradition when they built the new Ford GT.
