Alex McLeish has talked about shooting an Albatross and his desire to see Villa get to the 40 point mark.
Speaking to the E&S bemoaned our run of bad luck both on the pitch and with injuries, by saying:
‘The Gods are conspiring against us a bit and I think I’ve shot an Albatross or something. It’s a tough season and a tough challenge, but it’s not over yet. We have to get to at least 40 points. We have been weakened by injuries, that does make your job much harder.’
Now there’s no doubt injuries certainly haven’t helped, but that doesn’t excuse the performances or the decisions taken previously in the season when injuries weren’t an issue.
It just seems like there’s always something else to blame, young players, injuries, four forwards, blah blah blah.
McLeish may have some good news come the next match though, as it’s possible that N’Zogbia, Cuellar or Clarkie may be fit enough to return to the line up, or be an additional more experienced option for the bench at least.
Even getting one back would be a boost.
