Are Villa, Spurs And City The New Guard?

Are Villa, Spurs And City The New Guard?

Interesting article by Lando78 on Vital Man City which I thought I'd share as it involves Villa also:

Gary Lineker this week joined the growing list of pundits and journalists who believe that a change in guard is taking place in the Premier League.

They would have you believe that Spurs, Villa and City are on the march and backed with more money than a sheik`s Gold account, the old guard of Liverpool, United and Arsenal are on the wane.

So why have the managers of these three teams not been banging their own drum to the media beat?

For since the start of the season fans from Villa, Spurs and City have been treated to a never ending barrage of modesty from their managers.

Yep good article , yes MON needs to talk more positively and also more honestly when we do lose a game . Nothing wrong with admitting when you are rubbish instead of making excuses .

i would love it if that were true not just because i am spurs but all 3 of our clubs have proper fans not PL tourists and it would re-envigerate the stale boring top four scene

how do you think they got PL tourists? Its an inevitable side effect of becoming a top side.

you are right but at the moment we dont have that and the success achieved at this moment in time would be enjoyed by the real fans of our clubs

Well you only have to look at the clubs financial status to see which way they're heading! They got them selves into that mess, they can get themselves out of it! In my opinion, they deserve to suffer. I'm a long admirer of L-pool and am proud that we have a club like United in our country, but as villan you cant help but laugh, that tides are changing and the top 4 cannot sustain it much longer. It might take a couple of years or more, but nothing lasts for ever, remember villa won the league in 1981, europe in 1982, it might not be us who breaks into the top 4 this season but we wll be pushing for it. One things for sure, we, citeh and spurs will get stronger, United and Liverpool and the Gooners simply cant!
