  • There is an old saying “don’t put all your eggs in 1 basket” and I think foolishly MON has. With that UEFA cup fiasco. Why are the players tired? Played to many games. Why have they played so many games because MON wanted a run in the UEFA cup which meant Inter two bob and then threw the towel in when we got a good shot of progressing. WTF? I am so****ed offright now!

  • I think if we finish 5th or 6th Ashley and Gareth may be playing their football elsewhere next year…..

  • well gareth would be a massive loss to us…..i’m not so sure about ashley young on his day he’s brilliant but those DAYS are becoming less and less frequent…

  • Maybe we have been over achieving with some of the results, especially some away from home. We now need to get back to the training ground over the next two weeks and develop a plan B!!

  • since we have gone 4-4-2 we have lost or drawn. was this to accomodate heskey? why not start carew after that goal on the weekend? i think MON is doing great things but what is the problem to mix it up a bit when we’re looking a bit predictable?

  • We need laurson back< but it will take the rest of the season to get back to normall still in it doe ..

  • nah we still hve to face Chelsea at The Emirates, beat them at SB though. what a difference three days make in football. 5 mins to go vs Stoke & yu cud have been 8 points clear. now it’s only 3. just hope we dun ***** it up again & grab the 4th spot now..

  • long way to go. i mean we havent had a blip all year until now so it was gonna happen eventually. we are still 3 point clear of arsenal and have a better run in IMO. i know the performances have been poor of late but we havent just turned into a bad side overnight. now is not the time to go negative on our club they need our support. but then again im sure a few would be complaining no matter what happened. up the villa….allways

  • Heskey is our Asprilla – Newcastle bought him and changed things to accomodate him – they fell away. Put it this way – has Gabby played well since he has not been used as a lone striker?? We need to go back to 4-5-1 quickly – yeah sure Sidwell was not too great recently but Reo-Coker or Gardner could play there fine. We need to get Milner and Young more advanced – Heskey and Carew – they are our plan B!!

  • Hello all Villa fans. I’m not gloating, but we needed the win more than you. I wish you all the best for the rest of the season, I have been secretly hoping the Villa break the top 4 monopoly and show that their is hope for the rest of the premier league. Good luck and keep your nerve, 4th spot is within your grasp.
