Dare Villa Fans Dream?
Season To Date
So 25 games in, third spot and three points from the top (or eight points if Man U win their games in hand). That's unquestionably seriously amazing.
Pre season expectations were that many of us were confident we could knock Everton out of fifth, but we were also wary of Manchester City (with all their money) and Spurs (mostly due to media hype) and so realistic (discounting the O'Neil lovers and the traditional doom mongers evaluations) predictions for a final league position ranged from 5th to 8th, but we are 3rd so is this a realistic position or not?????
As a an experienced (over 30 years) Villa fan I'm waiting for the collapse, but I'm also enjoying the current run immensely. Seven consecutive away wins? Pinch me! We have never done that before
Long time supporters aren't used to Randy Lerner and Martin O'Neill, but you better believe they are winners and Villa haven't been associated with winners for a long time. The League Cup victory back in the 90s is a long time ago, and that was a different environment then too.
I'm pretty sure we wont win the premier league this season, but that's only down to Manchester United. If they weren't as good as the are, I think we could pull it off. The fact that people are talking about Villa as title contenders is fantastic.
Dare we dream?
