    Just thought I’d post a thread for people who used to post here previously, to let people know of any username changes etc. as it would be nice to reconnect to some of the familiar names. I was Danvilla84 previously, thought I’d change my name for the new forum.

    My main worry is that it’s taken so long for the YourSay pages to come back that people will have left for other forums or abandoned the site completely! It would have been nice if TeamTalk had given people some warning, the pages disappeared suddenly just as things were getting interesting! There’s been plenty to talk about. I tried a few different Villa forums but a lot of the posts on there were a bit reactionary for my liking (even worse than on here). I’m hoping some of the old posters come back on here and re-build what was actually a decent online community.

    Hey mate, Astonvillaward here. I kept the same username, just for continuity! I used to post a lot more than I did in recent years but i still enjoyed reading peoples comments and made a few when I felt like it.

    I did prefer the old Teamtalk yoursay and it would have been better if they just updated it for mobile use and enabled immediate comments but I’m sure we’ll get used to it. I just know having to click on a different thread ALL the time to get the Villa goss. is going to annoy me. I preferred it all in one place…

    Good to see a familiar name! Yea I think having different threads will take a bit of getting used to, but if someone creates a general thread that’s used as the main Villa Your Say thread, that will help. Also, it might end up being quite useful having match threads for people to post about the build up and aftermath of upcoming games.

    my previous incarnations were anotherdavid and bornagainvillaman .

    i think the new format is better in some ways – ie its instant .

    hope to see many more good old and new posters on here, and that balanced views are accommodated.

    I used to be Toxteth O’Grady but go by the name McGrath now. I’m sure I’ll get used to the new website. Good to be in your company again.

    Not sure you will welcome the odd posting from one of “the other lot” in the city. Had been looking forward to the odd bit of friendly banter before our recent game and the next thing the plug was pulled. Hope things start improving on the pitch for you guys. Good luck!
