Villa Low In Confidence.

Villa Low In Confidence.

Martin O'Neill has spoken about the lacklustre game against Liverpool and surprisingly says confidence is low.

He told the official site:

'I suppose a draw against Liverpool has to be seen as a useful point, but we didn't play particularly well and it eventually turned out to be a nothing game. The responsibility for us as the home side is to do better. We allowed them to much space, gave up possession too easily, sat back and weren't able to get at them for long spells. We can play much better and we should.'

'Overall, because we had the big crowd in, I wanted us to play better and it didn't materialise. That was really disappointing. We need a few more points on the board and confidence is not at its strongest at the moment. We have to fight through this.'

That isn't the most encouraging thing to hear, low confidence? The club is going places, we have some high priced new arrivals, the fans are right behind the team, so...........?

Funny old game.

Well.... this is why we heralded the arrival of MON. Time to do your thing Mr MON! 3 points against Everton, who looked lively today, will make us safe so we can relax. Half this team have to go though as they ain't up to it. Bit dissapointed with MON's tactics and decision making. Gabby needs to be benched his decision making is poor. Young to the right and either Barry, Moloney or Berger on the left. A 4-4-2 with Luke up front wouldn't go amiss.

Why should confidence be low, confidence amongst the supporters has at times this season been higher than anytime in the last 30 years, something is not adding up here, I still have a problem as to where the cause of my nagging doubt lies, fantastic manager, good "NEW" players, crowds up, everything up beat.... am and a nag......

Today was very disappointing performance wise. Very lack-lustre, and failed to beat a below Liverpool team that looked there for the taking.

I am getting tired of hearing 'we can play better' I haven't seen much evidence of that so far. A few months ago MON was telling us Gabby needed a rest but he had to play him, well with Young, Moore and Maloney he now has all the options he needs. Gabby was awful against the Arsenal and I was amazed he started yesterday (Luke wasn't even on the bench), and sure enough Gabby was poor again yesterday and who did MON bring off? Young. MON must be an absolute footballing genius because I can't understand what it is he is trying to do at the moment!!

Yesterday was truly awful and from where I was sitting, MON's tactics looked a mess. Gabby and Young were poor and Big John needs to be paired up front, otherwise he'll be on the move to another club. For christ's sake, MON, give the Carew/Angel partnership a run out! If it wasn't for the 3-for-2 ticket deal I'd be asking for a refund!

It was like going back in a time warp to the DOL era. Liverpool didn't turn up yesterday and as always when teams don't perform against us we don't bother pushing the game. If MON is going to use Carew as a target man then it makes sense, to a non footballing genius like myself, that you need someone within 5-10 yds of him running onto the balls he wins 9 out of 10 times.

Hoss - you're right! The home games against Fulham and the Baggies last season were amongst the worst I've ever endured at VP. Yesterday was on a par with those.
