Luke Marshall loves his stats and so do I !
So as an interesting comparison Luke has looked at the number of points after 28 games for the 12 teams who have been in the Premier League since 2006/7.
From this table you can see that 33 points at this stage is quite a familiar tale for Villa. However what I found to be the most surprising situation is to be 9th overall in all that time and a couple points off Everton’s average. In Randy’s time in charge we have seen hope and the reverse of that and it is the story of my Villa supporting years.
Years in which we have been up and down. Years in which we have been inconsistent and never knowing what the next season will bring and sometimes the next game. What it does show is the gap now we have to overcome to force ourselves back up there. Without going through a Mcleish debate it is clear a lot of hard work has to take place.
