JBerlin who was at the Chelsea game says forget it, Villa can mount a serious bid for a top four place.
I went to the game today to see improving villa, who are going to challenge arsenal to 4th place, the other 3 clubs will be 1 2 3.
I saw us play the European champions league and premier league runners up. Chelsea were class, Alan Hanson says the best performance he has seen from them in 5 years and we only lost due to sloppy uncharacteristic errors.
During the game I couldn't believe some of the fans getting on the backs of some players, yes I got frustrated with Gabbys work rate and play today, but these guys can have a bad day once in a while, and frankly if they have it away to Chelsea I'm not too bothered.
People over reacting after the game saying it just shows the gulf in class from the top 4 to the rest are talking rubbish. It shows the gap between the top 2 and the rest. Who forgot we drew to joint top Liverpool? Who forgot Arsenal's last two results? That surely shows they are way short of the top 4 doesn't it? No, just like today only proves Chelsea at their best are a much better team than us.
With a new striker for competition, and one other plus Bouma back we will mount a bid for 4th place. The game v Chelsea was just a bad day and we have two weeks now to put it right.
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
