Where Do You Think Villa Will Finish?

Where Do You Think Villa Will Finish?

Vital Villa asked in our last poll:

Where Will Villa finish?

Seems the optimism has gone down since the last time we asked, which is understandable due to our poor recent run.

Now 36% believe we'll finish 6th, 30% voted 5th and a positive 19% said 4th.

That left 15% about to slit their wrists voting ... gulp 7th.

Poll date was 07 Apr 2009

The last time we asked was one month before on 06 Mar 2009 and results were slightly more upbeat:

4th (38%)
5th (35%)
6th (15%)
2nd (5%)
3rd (4%)
Below 6th :o( (3%)

Proving? Nothing at all, it ain't over until the fat lady sings (apologies to all groups who feel excluded by my citing fat ladies and singing!)

Our latest poll asks what Villa should do if they did get an offer - as rumoured (press talk mind you) - with John Carew?

Now as special agent emile heskey has done his job and essentially ruined your season, if at the end of April we're within 3 points of you I think we'll finish above you. Our next two games are yourselves away, and then Chelsea away, if we get through them still in touch I'd bet heavily on us.

Agent Heskey? Presumably that makes O'Neill the commandant... My prediction is that you'll beat us at the weekend, but that we'll finish above you. Although I'm more confident of the first prediction than the second. Having said all that, I'm hoping we can pull something out of the fire against you. Although I imagine I'm in the minority with this one, I actually think the Everton game is a much tougher match than the Man Utd one just gone. We shall see...

Interestingly, MoN is suggesting we might finish as low as 8th! Maybe he knows something no-one else does?? Still, I hear 8th would still be good enough for Ruropa League football, and would therefore represent progress from last season...

I don't think 8th is Europa mate. 5th from the league, 6th from the FA Cup, 7th from the Carling Cup. There's no intertoto this year anymore, so unless England get that crappy fair play place again, which even if we do would not necessarily go to 8th but whoever has the bets fair play, so I don't think 8th is enough. Don't think you'll finish 8th though anyway, WHAM aren't likely to catch 8 points in 7 games, especially since they've still got to come and get beat at Goodison.

I would be surprised if we finished lower than sixth, but then I'm very surprised that we're not still ahead of Arsenal, with a far easier run in than the Arse. I think there may be more unpleasant 'surprises' ahead, and the more I think about it, the more I worry about Sunday. The pre match prediction poll should make interesting reading...

We're more than capable of seeing this lot off, and I certainly hope we do. 3-1 I think. We need to beat them to prove to some of these Everton wallahs that our 3-2 victory up there in December was no fluke, as many of them like to think it was, plus I'd like a little bit of revenge for that F.A. Cup mauling, when hands up, we were admittedly second best that day. We'll finish fifth or sixth, fighting it out with The Toffees for the higher placing, either position I hoped and somewhat expected to see us end up in, way back in August. It was nice to dream of a top four final finish, but realistically I dont think it was ever on. We're simply just not good enough as we stand. We are good enough to beat Moyes' lot though. 3-1 as I have already said.

Your right to be confident really glensider, we're definatly not that good without Arteta. Last week was the only remotely good performance since we lost him, so hopefully we'll carry that on. Problem is though Jo is *****e away from home, 5 in 4 at home but he's been beyond useless away. So we'll probably only threaten from set plays, our only hope is you still haven't learned to defend them without Laursen. I'd predict a 1-1 draw.

Oh dont worry EvertonMike, I'm full of it, a true Brummie trait. I'm a lot less confident than I sound, or that I would have you believe, rest assured of that. The only thing about Sunday afternoon's game that I can safely say with any degree of confidence, is that it is a game that brings together the fifth and sixth best sides in England, and in what order they stand, is really anyone's guess. A 1-1 draw certainly wouldn't surprise me, but I must admit that for some strange reason, I do have the sneaky feeling that we will actually achieve a very rare home victory. I'm not holding my breath though, after all a lot poorer sides that Everton have left Villa Park with a point or three throughout the season. Whatever happens EvertonMike, I hope that you and yours enjoy a very pleasant Easter weekend, whatever you have planned or get up to.

I'm posting on this article because at the time I thought you would be pushing for a top four place. Recent form would suggest you going to struffle to hold on to 5th.spot
