Villa To Come Out Fighting? When?

Villa To Come Out Fighting? When?

According to rookie defender Liam Ridgewell who scored in the 3-2 defeat to Wigan on Tuesday, Villa will 'come out fighting again'.

He says the team are desperate to not be associated with the worst ever Premiership points tally. Graham Taylor at the moment has that sad record with 45 points finishing 16th 3 seasons ago. Villa are currently on 39 points and have conceded 50 goals scoring only 39.

The team face bogey team Manchester City at home next Tuesday night, have a visit to Anfield to face Liverpool and end the season with a home tie against premiership whipping boys Sunderland. We never get anything at Anfield, so they need two wins to at least draw level with the 45 points haul and pray that Liverpool have an off day to give us a draw!

Ridgewell says 'I take that as a personal slight against me because I've played most of the season and I don't want us to finish on our lowest points tally. We're working on it during the week and I'm sure we'll come out fighting again.'

Last season Villa achieved a still unimpressive 47-points.

'We don't want to be the worst (Villa) team. I don't want that tag.'

Meanwhile Liam Ridgewell and Gary Cahill will make an appearance at the Villa Village store tomorrow (April 21). They will meet fans, sign autographs and pose for photographs from 2pm.

We haven't won 3 games on the spin all season. So we are hardly going to start now. If I was a player at V.P. I would be inclined to keep by mouth shut. Underachieves should be seen and not heard, do your talking on the pitch. Then people might take all your talk seriously for a change.

No, too much to expect to even get back to back wins apparently. Still, DOL will be gone in the summer and we'll have the new golden era heralded. :(

But it is the 3-4 year cycle, a new manager will come in, the fans will all sit back down and think 'this time'. The common factor then misses the flak that he should be getting and the apathy continues.

We (the fans) are more likely to get a golden shower off Doug than a golden era. Watch out for bursting colostomy bags!
