Lowest ever points tally
At the moment we have the lowest points tally we have ever had in the Prem for this point of the season, 3 years ago under Graham Taylor Villa achieved just 45 points, our lowest haul in the Premiership. DOL is 10 points short with seven games remaining.
Disaster Of A Season
Injuries aside, this season has been a disaster, lets not even mention Doncaster. The performances have been poor and the fans once again seem split on yet another manager.
Lets face it, we have a manager merry go round at Villa and the only thing it guarantees is that Ellis avoids the full glare of the fans and shareholders wrath. We all know it and yet it happens every time.
I doubt DOL has the ability to 'beat' the fans once they start calling for his head, another poor display in the local derbies (or a run across the pitch to salute anyone but the home fans!) and the voices calling for his head will no doubt grow.
Then, unless we get this much talked about sale, Doug will bring in the next man and we'll be promised the next 'golden future'.
