Last stand for Mcleish and a few players.
At Norwich I have no doubt that we will see the end of a number of people currently involved at Villa. We know for certain Guzan, Cuellar and Heskey will be in their last games for the club. I also suspect we may see the last game for either Collins or Dunne (whether on the bench or not) and maybe Warnock. It will be the end of an era for some.
Then of course I have no doubt it will be the last game on the sidelines for Mcleish and Grant. Today Mcleish admitted he has emailed Faulkner for a meeting. Not heard of a phone ? or was an email a forlorn attempt to prevent the obvious happening ? Mcleish his gone and his last team selection will be
Cuellar Collins Dunne Lichaj
Nzog Herd Clark Warnock
We are not safe (though only a football miracle can send us down) so maybe this is sensible and safe looking for the record number of PL draws. If Mcleish was feeling brave then why give some a last hurrah and not just play those certain to be at Villa Park next season. It will be the first game for a long time that we can be relaxed in. For those of us not going streams may be impossible to find. For those of you going, enjoy and imagine a certain team in Blue may get a few mentions.
End of a horrible season. time to review it next week and I suspect yet another draw may be forthcoming. However I would put a fiver that by Sunday 8PM it may well be that Mcleish is no longer manager and in a very dark season, finally some light at the end of the tunnel.
BYE Alex you will not be missed.
