Vital Villa stalwart TuBBz (yes, he is local) said in the forum yesterday, Dare I Dream?. In his 5000th post on the site he admits to having had major doubts over MON but is starting to believe!
'I will start off this post by saying I have been in the anti MON camp, even putting a ban on me watching my team till he leaves. Lets be honest here, at the start of the season we were terrible, getting thumped by Wigan on our own ground and looking totally clueless everywhere on the pitch.
With some good fortune Hughes at Man City was obsessed with getting Lescott which left Richard Dunne (our best signing of the season) out in the cold and a transfer day deadline signing along with previously unknown to me Collins and our solid central defence pairing is born.
Results improved but performances were still dire keeping my self imposed Villa Park ban in place. Wins against Chelsea and Liverpool made me think that it was more fluke than form.
With the arrival of Downing into the team our Milly moved into the middle and all of a sudden CLICK. My team look dangerous. We beat Man Utd at their place for the first time in 26 years and have not leaked a goal in 6 HOURS of football.
We now have 2 games that I think will define our season in a visit to the Emirates and the return fixture with Liverpool. Two games I go into with belief that we will win and cement our top 4 standing.
With Utd's defence looking like ours at the beginning of the season and Chelsea about to loose half there team to the African Nations Cup and not exactly running away with the league why the hell can't we get Champions league football at last?
So it only remains for me to say it is starting to look like I was wrong about MON and that I can indeed say that my team is not just looking good from the outside but also to us fans as well. Get us a goal scoring machine and I know that is the final piece in our starting 11 jigsaw.
Win the league this season?
Surely that's a dream!'
So, just a dream?
Well, Petr Cech told The London Informer that Spurs and Villa ARE title rivals to Chelsea.
The Chelsea keeper said: 'The race is wide open. I wouldn’t say just Man United are our rivals because you can see the other teams like Aston Villa and Tottenham all have a good run. They will all fight for their chances to be in the top four or close to the title. There are still people to chase us, but in the end, I think it will depend on what we do.'
Hmmm, well I am of an age when I always expect the wheels to fall off but I must admit recently I've been asking, 'what if these here wheels don't come off and we carry on in the same form?' The title is too big a dream for me to think about at the moment but a Carling Cup win and a top four place? Well sod it, if you are going to dream, you might as well dream big, we are going to win the FA and Carling Cup, win the title and possibly even the World Cup as well...!
Yup, the Christmas spirit is out the bottle and flowing!
