Stiliyan Petrov is aiming high and asks Why can’t Villa ‘do an Everton’ and finish fourth?

‘They (Everton) showed two seasons ago it’s possible for clubs to break into the top four. We can do the same. Why not? European football is incredible and the Villa players want to achieve it next season. I’ve got used to winning things. I see no reason why I should lower my ambitions now.’

‘We’ve lost only once in the Premiership. When Liverpool beat us, we gave them too much space in the first half. But we learnt fast. Second half, we were in their faces, and we took the improvement into the win over Blackburn. I played against Everton in a pre-season friendly for Celtic and they have some good individuals. But David Moyes has them working very hard as a unit.’

Villa are going in at half time against Everton 1-0 up following a beautifully floated ball from Isaiah Osbourne that Chris Sutton just glanced in. 4th? Why not!? 😉

  • Long way to go yet, and a lot depends on the amount of strengthening MON is able to do in January. Without wishing to sound negative, we are still a long, long way behind the supposed Big 4, but after that I feel everyone is pretty much of a muchness, so

  • you have a great chnace of actually achieving thsi under O’Neil..there’s a long way to go yet but you are playing tight and not giving a lot away….

  • I’m trying hard not to get carried away. Still a long way to go until May, and after the supposed ‘Big 4’, I think that there’s little to choose between the rest of the premiership. Three wins and you’re up there, three defeats and……..
