According to Aaron Hughes the Aston Villa team are all happy campers.
Press, pundits and fans alike are all whispering about a split in the dressing room, Hughes - a David O'Leary signing from Newcastle - insists that isn't true:
'It has been a frustrating season, it's been up and down. We are as frustrated as everyone else because we know what we are capable of. Everyone expects this club to be finishing higher because of the players we've got here. That's why it's frustrating for everyone - including myself - that we haven't done as well as we should have. There have been some days where it hasn't happened for us, and you scratch your head, and some days when we have been really good.'
'We've had a lot of games this season, especially at home, where we've played quite well but haven't finished team off. let them stay in the game and they've gone onto take the points. We have been aware things were being said. There have been rumours that the dressing room is split. But I can assure you we've got a strong dressing room, everyone is pulling in the same direction and everyone wants us to do well. What we have got to do is produce the good days more often. Let's get to the end of the season and finish as high as we can and see how things go in the summer and start afresh for next season.'
Doesn't go as far as saying all the players are 100% behind the manager though and sources 'close to the club' suggest there are more than a few who aren't impressed with the current set up. Tens of thousands of fans also feel the same way. If the players are fully behind the manager, then we are in more trouble than I first though with the way we've played this season.... gulp.
