Well wasn’t that just plain boring.
Some Villa fans trying take positives from today and yes Ireland was OK and deserved MOTM but that probably says more about how poor the rest was. On that game then why was Cuellar in the bench ? Given is a good keeper and there are reasons why h should play above Guzan but HUTTON above Cuellar ??? Go on, someone try and explain that to me ??
The first half was as dire as it can be. Yes both keepers had to make good saves but I saw masses of people go at 30 mins to the beer bar because everyone else was asleep. Notice how quiet it is when the team now comes out, notice all the empty gaps, Mcleish has sucked the life force out of Villa.
The second half was better for the first 20 minutes, clearly the players had a bollocking. Bent scored well a Bent goal and it appeared for a few minutes we could get a win. However as usual the defence was all at sea and Everton for me got a deserved draw. I guess Mcleish stopped himself from going into the record books but once again he showed how much his ‘style’ of football is hated at Villa.
It has to be said , just one up front is a total farce at home for Villa. Anyone watching today will see how much out of position Gabby is on the left. Anyone watching today will see that Mcleish is trying to fit ‘stars’ into a system that does suit them. Until he grows a pair and realises that one of Gabby or Bent has to be dropped playing a negative formation then we will continue to struggle. The squad he has is more than capable of the entertaining football he claims he wants to play, but until he goes 442 then we will look the lifeless force we are.
We had under 30,000 fans today, can you imagine what a midweek attendance with QPR will be with only 1,000 of their fans if not less. We are seriously looking at less than 28,000 fir that game and the warning bells in the accounts must be ringing loud. I have tried to keep away from Mcleish Out shouts this season but as we saw from the atmosphere today (I heard just one song after we scored) then the club is slowly dying, does Randy really want that ?
