I’ve been really busy over the last couple of weeks and I never got a chance to really reflect on the Villa news and recent results.
Southampton beating Villa
This was such a bad result, never had I been so upset. But it wasn’t the result that really bugged me, it was the fact that I’ve yet again lost confidence in our team. Whenever I watch a match, I always put on my Villa shirt and wrap a scarf around my neck. I used to feel proud and anxious for the game, knowing that we may in fact get a result. In fact I was contemplating trying out a new tradition that would see me keep my beard as long as we keep winning. Had I pre sued that, I’d have to shave almost every day! But in all honesty, going into every game I’ve got little confidence in my team and I just know that we’ll lose. It’s a terrible feeling and I felt this last year as well. If fairly confident if we, fans have little confidence in our team; I’m sure that the players have little confidence in the manager.
What in the world is going on? No transfers! We are past mid-January and our rivals are adding but were not! Remy is an excellent addition for QPR, Reading have signed a couple of players and we’re just sitting here doing nothing. The links haven’t been too exciting if I’m honest, Sissoko wasn’t too bad but the most interesting rumour might’ve been the fact that John Carew and Martin Larusen want to start playing for us again.
This is relatively new, there are rumours floating around that Villa representatives are talking to Matteo and are asking him if he want’s to save us. I’ve been backing Lambert for the last couple of months but I think he’s gone insane; playing younger and younger squads by the week! Once Bent is fit you have to play him. I don’t want to be watching Championship football next year! But in all seriousness, Lambert needs to be put under pressure. Di Matteo has one of the best CV’s in football management right now and if he’s interested; I’d put him in charge.
We’re in the relegation zone now, last weekend the results went against us but had we picked up a couple of results earlier. We would’ve been fine. I think we are in serious danger and for a team like Aston Villa this is absolutely unacceptable. Something has to be done, whether this is investment or a change of manager I can’t stand another defeat and if we do get relegated how can we allow West Brom to be the only Midland team in the Premier League
