As Things Stand Now - Where Will Villa Finish?

As Things Stand Now - Where Will Villa Finish?

Vital Villa asked, on 20 June 2009

As things stand, where will we finish next season?

And guess what?

We've just done the same again .... how very exciting for us all!

Just wondered if your view had changed - as things stand in the transfer market - and we'll no doubt ask again after a few more arrivals or at the end of the transfer window, giving us all a bit of time to assess early results as well.

The results from June 20 was:

7th-10th.. bad 54%
5th 11%
6th 11%
11th-17th.. gulp 8%
1st 2nd or 3rd 6%
4th..yay 6%
18-20th..disaster 4%

For the season preview in 442 pre-season supplement (magazine on sale right now!) Vital Villa's Take On Season In 442 the one question asked where I thought we'd finish, I said '7th unless we do spend well this summer, then we could be up and competing again. I'm lowering my sights just slightly to avoid disappointment!' I think that remains around and about right, 7-8 unless we get at least 4 or 5 new players in, we showed last year that we didn't have a big enough squad and we've not increased the size as yet (a fact that won't have escaped the board/manager and I'm sure... gulp... one that will be rectified).

What do you think right now?

8th is realistic. We haven't signed any decent players, simple. So we will definitely slide for sure. Unless MON can sign 4-5 great players, but he's had all summer to do so...so any we get in now will be panic buys, plan Fs and Gs sadly.

As it stands now, with Cuellar and Davies the only senior centre backs, we are gonna struggle. Davies has a dodgy shoulder that could pop out at any time. So as it stands with the current squad, somewhere between 8th and 12th. A couple of centrebacks and a striker then 6th/7th is possible

It will be hard to get the season started after losing 3-0 to Wigan this week. Maybe after that...

Having seen how the kids can step up when needed I'm not as worried as I was so I'm now expecting top half......just.
