Mark Lawrenson has reviewed the season and predicts top ten for Villa saying 'possibly a Uefa Cup spot'.
Lawro told the BBC site: 'Villa had a good start, an iffy middle and a decent finish to last season and boss Martin O'Neill will be looking for them to progress this year in his second term in charge. I would not be surprised to hear of O'Neill signing a couple more players before the transfer deadline at the end of August.' And points at John Carew as our key man.
So, our latest poll asks, ignoring the transfer situation as we don't know who is coming if anyone, where do you think we'll finish this season?
If we do get more signings, I'll repeat the poll!
