One game to go for Aston Villa…the highs of 2020 and the lows of 2021.
Vital Villa forum member Thomas Holte reviews the season and gives his thoughts.
A brief summary of Dean & Co for season 2020/21.
A brilliant start to the campaign that had everyone favourably talking about us. It finally brought back that feeling of pride in the club that had sadly disappeared such a long time ago.
Average to poor at times in the second period, but overall, I would have taken 52 points (possibly 55 after Chelsea?) and 11th place, particularly after the nail-bitter of the previous season.
Vital Villa’s Dean Smith Forum Thread
There’s lots of room for improvement from the manager and coaches, particularly on how to stop a poor run of form, but everyone will have learned a tremendous amount – and gained masses of experience – from this season and the manager will have had the time to have a good look at the squad and analyse where we are weak, with a view to strengthening the squad with hopefully quality replacements.
It’s nearly time now to fold away the Villa scarf and place it in the draw for the summer – ready for next season which will be full of the usual highs and lows on the roller-coaster ride that is Aston Villa FC.
My overall view on the season: Well done Dean Smith and good luck in 2021/22.
