Villa Fan Asks: Why All The Doom & Gloom

Villa Fan Asks: Why All The Doom & Gloom

Northstandlower asks 'Why all the DOOM & GLOOM???'

I'm going to keep this short and sweet.

Lets just take a quick step back and look at things from a far...

We have lost ONE yes ONE Premier Lg game (forget last season this is now)

Did people think we were going to go the whole season unbeaten??

I was at the game...the manor of the defeat was disappointing and out of character, lets put this behind us.

We finished the last 2 x season in sixth place.....form is temporary, class is permanent.

The transfer window is still open I believe we will sign some good additions, starting with Warnock.

I remember people moaning about the signings start of last season....and really we had a great season.

How different things will look if we actually beat Liverpool on Monday....

Can we start actually getting behind the team!?!

You can't really just say ignore last season, we are starting this season in last seasons end of term poor form. 6 draws, 8 losses, just 3 wins. Even Sidders - article to follow - is admitting the form is awful and we've got to pick it up + says the fans had the right to boo (still don't like the booing really) I think Villa fans have been bloody patient over the years but for all the talk and hype, we aren't exactly setting the world alight and for some 6th isn't a 'great' season really? Love the positivity though dude!

Yup agree that it's great to be positive, but this isn't about ONE league defeat is it, it's about being ill-prepared for the new season time and time again. That's what gripes northstandlower, and with all the scouts, research, funds etc at his disposal MON really should have the team in tip-top shape at this stage. Also, the type of football we're playing eg hoof it up to heskey, is enough to depress even the most hardened non-league supporter. Most Villa fans are just being realistic instead of blindly saying 'have faith' and 'be positive', As soon as there's a grain of something to be positive about then I'll be the first to start getting excited. But until then we have a right to whinge in the hope that MON will start doing something about it.

Patient for what? We have no divine right to win the Prem or qualify for the CL. MON took over a side that was literally relegation fodder and delivered back to back 6th place finishes. Admittedly our form is poor at the moment, and I'm not above being critical of MON but we're only one game into the season, though looking around the internet you'd think the sky had fallen in. Hardly a day goes by without some self indulgent diatribe being posted about giving back season tickets etc. Despite what Sidders says the real embarrassment at the moment is the fans. I didn't know where to look last week at half time; it was shameful. If we'd have supported our side we might have got back in the game. We have some really excititing, young players now and a great platform to push on in the richest, most competitive league in the world, but we won't be winning anything if fail to support our team.

other managers have done the same RoyalVilla, JG straight up in his first season, DOL who everyone hated got us to 6th, both with less money. I know you are being positive and that is fantastic but you surely see the squad is wafer thin again and we don't have cover, this after 7 transfer windows? Wish I was you mate, I'm slowly melting into negativity and you are looking up ... superb, I'll have to have some of what you are on, all credit to you! lol Oh, it isn't just the internet, if you were there on Saturday (or a lot of games from last Feb) you'd have heard the boos (again, don't like them) plus moans from fans at half time, full time etc? Think it is well out of order to say that the fans are a disgrace or to blame, we've had our expectations raised and the squad for me is a shambles, even Sidders (about to be published) seems to half agree!

I agree Olof, if we keep our mouths shut then nothing will happen. The fans are the main share holders as someone else pointed out. If the fans start voting with their feet, and not buying soivenirs, plus the TV not wanting to show us so often, the income and future look bleak. We are still Villa fans, and because of our passion and love of the club we are moved voice concerning opinions! This should act as a "wake up and smell the coffee" call to Mr Lerner and MON! Of course NO, one game isn't a season, but it IS a continuation of a bad finish last season, and that cant be ignored either! We are NOT doing a Newcastle, but we are not top 4 either!
