A wiseman said after the game 'theres positives to take from today's game' i.e. we weren't that far off quality wise from one of Europe's best teams.....the poor sod got some flack for it until rescued by a pensioner later on, but I knew what he meant. I was gutted merely because we had lost a game, it could have been against Wigan for all I cared! but this season we've done very well against the 'big 4'. Last season we lost at home to 'pool, man ure and arsenal....this year we got draws AND a win at the Emirates. ok we beat Chelsea, and im still convinced that if scolari were still there we would have got at least a point on Saturday! Im sure we can get a draw at anfield but not so sure about man ure.
Our team is young, hungry, and its a new experience for a lot of them (if not all) to be challenging for the prestigious top 4!!!!!! Beginning of the season id have taken 5th place, and part of me still would, we're a millions miles away from being a regular in the top 4....Saturday, at times, showed that, but we are getting there! No doubt in my mind we are....
Reading an article on Sunday about the Holte and some of the things the new chairman has done certainly took the pain away from Saturdays loss.....this club is going places!! maybe not 100mph, but were going places! If im honest I wasn't quite sure we'd duplicate what we did last term, but we've matched it and in my opinion, bettering it!!
MON said we'll bounce back, and I KNOW we will..........now is the best time I've EVER known to be a villa fan, certainly in my life time, and I look forward to seeing where we'll be in couple or so years time!
As for this season, no League cup no FA cup and there's a chance that this time next week there'll be no UEFA cup, the premiership is THE main objective at the moment....there's so many pluses to a finish in the top 4 and its vital (no pun intended) that we do it at the very latest next season!! Im sure we will......infact I KNOW we will!!
