At 2-0 down you feared the worse, at 2-2 you was pissed off that we drew yet another game, sums up the season.
At least by betting a draw every game I am up this season but this season is becoming a joke in many ways. Lets look at the defence. A total joke from all them and I do ask does Given communicate with them at all and would we be better with Guzan. Oh I can hear the howls of outrage as people read that but both goals were due to communication. Yes Dunne and Warnock were awful but defence starts at the keeper as well. ALL TO BLAME and Mcleish seems incapable of sorting it out.
However at times tonight we looked really good attacking wise. Keane was good but the MOTM for me was Ireland by a distance for the interplay and very good passing. The question in the forward play is one I have spoken about before,without Gabby are we actually a better attacking side ? Again the howls of outrage may be heard but I saw real positive signs today and that was because IMHO Gabby did not play.
The defence however is the major issue, Collins is not there and have we got worse ? Is Dunne the problem, is Warnock or the way we play at the back. Will Mcleish be brave and make wholesale changes at the back ? Clark in there ? Lichaj at Left back ?
The table is clear, we will not finish higher than 8th, we will not get relegated but 40% of the games are draws and this is what is costing us. So back to a post I made last week and should we gamble and drop the players with no future and start with players we may actually want to play next season ?
One final question, was there really more Villa fans there today than were against Everton ?
