'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Were You Happy With Villa's Season?

Vital Villa asked for our last poll, in a rather obvious question maybe:

Where you happy with last season?

Seems a massive majority (86%) were very happy as they voted yes, massive strides forward.

That left 12% voting yes but could have been better and just 1% each for 'average, cup runs ruined it' and 'no, I expected more'.

Our latest poll, mainly because I've run out of inspiration, asks how many players you think we will buy during this summers transfer window.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is nuts MON got an amazing number of points given the lack of numbers and lack of quality in the final third

Yes, shortshadyuk you are right, but in some of the games we did not play well. We seemed to go back to the 'hoof it up the park' mentality. If we had played the way we know they can in every game, then, I would suggest, we would have had at least 8 -10 points more. Then would there be any argument about GB going to Liverpool?

You'd expect Spurs to improve next year, so will need to buy well to stay where you are, as will Everton. We've now got 15 outfield players with first team experience, with a mere 4 midfielders. When you consider our formation of choice is 4-5-1 I'd hazard we need more players than the Villa!

Martin O'Neill has proved he has what it takes to cut it in the Premiership. He has proved beyond all doubts that he is the man to return Aston Villa to the top of English football.

I agree with shortshadyuk, the points total this year was much more than i expected and any other year would of guaranteed us UEFA cup football instead of Intertoto. And when you consider the points we also dropped, the season could of been even better, but, i am more than content with the season we have had. Onwards and upwards.

The funny thing is if Barry had worked a little harder in the Wigan game we may have finished just behind Liverpool.

if i was told we would finish where we did with the anount of points gained and goals scored i would have taken it without question although i had to be part of the 12% due to the silly games we lost when the players just failed to turn up to the game (Wigan and so on) we would have been in an even better position. although im proud of how well our boys did under the circumstances and each and every player deserve praise. (not Berger mouth though)

Personally delighted with the campaign just ended, now lets build, push on, ensure that we dont stand still, our major failing in recent seasons. Our competitors will be active in the transfer market this summer, we have to be. If Gareth moves on, as I firmly believe he will, lets ensure that its not a step-back, but a launching pad for a new look AVFC.

We had a great season in my eyes.We were going great guns until Davis got injured.It just highlighted the fact we have paper thin cover.That and lack of a solid rightback cost us europe.Fact....We need one quality striker,three midfield,3 defenders and two keepers.Not a lot to ask,lol.
