After a much needed win against Norwich City, Aston Villa fans were hoping to see the side make it back to back wins as we travelled to Vicarage Road to face Watford earlier this afternoon.

The Norwich performance wasn’t pretty but we’ve played better and lost, however, Watford was again another shambles and having lost pretty comprehensively at 3-0 – the fact they only had ten men for the final half an hour will only intensify calls for a proven striker in the January transfer market. Especially as it was only 1-0 at that point.

It’s rare to cut sides open with ten men when they sit back, but given the hosts continued to match us on possession and still had greater chances on and off target come the end of the game, it will only lead to more questions than answers.

Watford was never going to be an easy clash as their more recent form has been better than ours, but few will take any positives from that one given their margin of control.

  • We have past the point of no return every game gettin worse playing with10 men because we have had no striker. Procurement failed us at the beginning of the season to get us a proven striker. We’ve ha 2 Managers both with the same in surmountable problem so it is impossible to succeed..Byby Villa.

  • Where is John Terry? He was brought in as our Defensive Coach but has he seems to be missing on the touch line with Dean Smith just lately.

  • Honest Dave has a point – Terry needs to be working on that defence.

    I can’t see Smith moving on, given his recent new contract. However, it is time to question the quality of the Suso acquisitions.

    All three offensive signings during the last transfer window have been poor. The contributors on the forum all rated El Ghazi, but he has done nothing but to confirm my belief that he is a half hearted player at best. Wesley struggles on his own – was it not recognised that an inexperienced lad in a new country would find it hard? Trezeguet is just too lightweight.

    Nakamba – rather erratic.

    In my opinion, if we can shift Kalinic, Lansbury and Kodjia, we will have moved on in a positive direction.

    If Jarrod Bowen is signed, then great. However, we still need a central striker.

    Vida – overload? Cover for McGinn? – Kamara or Drinkwater probably makes sense.
