Desire To Put Things Right

Desire To Put Things Right

Stiliyan Petrov has said the team don't need any extra motivation to get back to winning ways after the hurt they felt following the Blackburn performance.

Speaking on the official site Petrov explained that he has loved the added responsibility of the armband this year, but he's not going to need to gee the lads up for the next match because they all have a terrific desire to put things right.

'I feel so much pride when I wear the armband. When you lead a club and team like Villa, it's just a great honour. It's a big responsibility.

'It was frustrating at the weekend but in general what we have at the moment is a desire to win and a desire to put things right again. We'll bounce back.

'When you have that desire in the camp, you don't need to say much because I know we will do the business on the pitch.'

We certainly do need to do the business on the pitch, our performances of late have been dire and we need to find another gear. We can't rely on nicking points regularly in games when our form is so poor - we found that out last season - and eventually the own goals and the penalties will dry up and we simply can't rely on Gabby alone to keep finding the net.

It is Ok saying they want to put things right, but whilst the manager persists with the 442 formation which doesnt suit our players we will be forever reading articles such as this. I recently did a complete breakdown of all of our results over the last 15 months that highlights the fact that we are rubbish when playing two wide men and leaving two players to try and cover the rest of the midfield. It didn't work when it was Barry and Petrov in the middle. Why would it work when it is Petrov and Delph (who has the potential to be a real star)? He tried it against Wigan and we were desperate. He reverted to the midfield three against Redscouse, Fulham, B-lose and we got results. He reverted back to 442 against Pompey and we were poor against a poor Pompey team. Had it not been for Friedel then the result could have been different. And he tries it again against Blackburn. I am a M'ON fan but I find it unbelievable that a manager has found a winning formulae and a losing formulae and persists with the losing one. Unbelievable.
