Villa Fans Have Feet On The Ground

Villa Fans Have Feet On The Ground

Vital asked in the weekends poll, with Martin O'Neill, what can Villa achieve this season.

17% predicted Uefa Cup qualification.

36% said top ten and another 38% said a decent league position and a good cup run or two.

4% still say we will face a relegation fight without funds provided and 3% said we'd finish mid to lower table.

That left 2% saying 'I'm totally confused and unsure!'

Expectations amongst Villa fans are always said to be high, but those results look like we have our feet pretty much on the ground? Europe might be a long shot without new signings, but if anyone can motivate the team, O'Neill can. At least we shouldn't get a repeat of the last few seasons total lack of passion.

Anything has to better than the last two frustrating seasons. I believe that even with this squad we could achieve 8th or better. MON will give the players belief and instil confidence, something that has been lacking of late.

I bet 32RED cannot believe their luck, all this publicity and they haven’t paid a great deal for it. Just proves Doug is not as sharp as he thinks, he’s had it like a kipper.

who cares we have got the best manager in the land. WE HAVE GOT O'NEIL GET IN! he must know that the takeover is coming and that he will have loads of money to build his title challenge. O'leary gone and O'Neil in.....dreams can come true.

I am not expecting miracles this first season, a lot depends on whether we get new owners and the transfer budget available now and in January. And injuries of course. But even assuming the squad remains the same, with O'Neill and his two assistants in charge, we could reasonably expect a top 7-10 finish, and no more Darlington-type humiliation in the domestic cup competitions.

If we have a good start and something to give confidence back to the players we can reach top 10. Im a lot more excited than I was a month ago anyway

I would imagine that we are stuck with 32RED and Hummel till the contract runs out, the only otherway would to buy the contract up. Im no lawyer so i stand to be corrected.

i believe the contract was on a yearly renewal, failing that, we'll have a billionaire so contracts mean jack when your swimming in dollars !!!. i'm hoping with an amercican in charge we'll get some nubile young cheerleaders. what would be your dream cheerleader team? rules are, 5 in the team and conforming to euro regs, 3 must be homegrown talent. i anticipate your responses.

Hell, even with Deadly still holding the purse strings I am confident of at least two substantial signings before the start of the season. Apart from that time I found myself standing next to Monica Bellucci I can't remember the last time I was so stiff with excitement.
