Worst Game Of The Season Shocker

Worst Game Of The Season Shocker


Next up in the End Of Season Awards (more fun than the actual season this is!) is the worst game of the season award. Blimey, we had a few to choose from didn't we?

With 2% of the votes we have West Ham games home and away (1-2 and 0-4), the Everton away match (4-1) and the Arsenal away game (5-0).

Next up we have all the games against Manchester City with 7% of the votes. We lost 1-3 away, drew 1-1 in the FA Cup at home but had them all over us with possession and passion, then they beat us 2-1 at the City of Manchester Stadium to progress in the FA Cup and rounded off a miserable season against them beating us 1-0 at Villa Park.

26% voted for the League Cup humiliation against Doncaster who from start to finish taught our Premiership boys a lesson in how to go about a cup match. The end result a shocking 3-0 and more excuses from the manager.

But the overall winner, which should give Ellis, O'Leary and the players cause for alarm, was a massive 61% vote for the season in its entirety. A season that has seen us finish with our lowest ever points tally in the Premiership - 42 - and just ten wins in total (12 draws, 16 losses). 16th despite the claim that we are budgeted as a top ten club.

Apart from the two wins over the noses, following Villa 2005/2006 season was painfull. I have a little salvo to fire at the "Holte End" our chants are very poor and sometimes silent. I wonder if there was better noise (the home game v our neighbours for example) would things have been different??? How about a new song about the Villa???

And villa park is still the only place where Jose Mourino hasn't won yet.

West Ham away was the most disappointing game for me. A new look team, hopes were high, a shocking performance. It summed our season up in just 90 minutes. We couldnt even compete with an average team, and that sad fact was to be repeated throughout the season.
