Villans Would Rather A Cup Than 4th!

Villans Would Rather A Cup Than 4th!

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by benji_starsky_avfc,

What would you prefer?

The results show that top four isn't the be all and end all for football fans, as 55% voted they would rather the Carling Cup or FA Cup.

27% would take anything, a cup or 4th place.

That left 18% prefering 4th place and the Champions League.

Either FA Cup or 4th (not Carling) registered 0%

We also asked

Villa v Man Utd (Wembley CC Final) will:

Win 2-1 43%
Win 1-0 15%
Win on pens 15%
Lose 12%
Win 2-0 10%
Win 3-2 5%

Our latest one, suggested by Nerrad Villa, asks which striker would you start, Heskey or Carew.

From all of us at Pompey, we wish the Villa all the best. Despite ALL OUR PROBLEMS, the memory of winning a cup at Wembley is a fantastic experience.

It should be added that Villa are the fourth most successful side in English club history. (Some Evertonians might try to claim fourth place by counting Charity/Community Shields). Any opportunity to consolidate this position should be grasped with both hands (and that means winning domestic trophies). It's quite sad to see great, historic clubs like Villa, Everton, Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool, seeing fourth spot in the league (or 2nd, 3rd and 4th) as the height of their ambitions. Finishing first should be the ultimate goal. As some 'big' clubs face financial armageddon, there is no reason for the Villa to see the League Title as something to aim towards. The club isn't that far behind Arsenal, are arguably better than Liverpool, and have a far more professional setup than Citeh. Newton Heath are potentially facing a financial disaster. Expect a MASSIVE clear out there in the summer. As for the CL, despite the stars and often terrific football (from Barca especially), the format feels tired. It should of course be for League Champions ONLY, sadly that is highly unlikely to happen. The only way the way UEFA, FIFA, and the 'Men in Suits' will be prevented from completely damaging OUR game, is through fan pressure and initiatives. Grass roots 'forums' like Vital Football should be at the forefront of that. It would be great if VF put out the feelers to similar sites overseas. Their might be language barriers, but footie fans worldwide have a certain solidarity. I'm sure a lot of other fans in Europe, are also fed up with their clubs seeing the 'Golden Carrot' of CL footie, as 'success'. Will the history books record 'they finished fourth' or 'they qualified for the Champions League'? Is there a place in the trophy cabinet for 'CL qualification'? UTV!
