Aston Villa Stats Update
Stats update! Can the figures do the talking? Hey fellow Villans.
Thought I'd gather a few stats together from the last 3 season, and this one to see if it can tell us anything we don't already know!!
Firstly, we are obviously in a season of transition.
MON took us to 3 consecutive 6th place finishes, and although opinion is divided on the subject, we now find ourselves in a season of change - for good or for bad!
So.. Here's 'the lowdown' on where we are 10 games into the new season:
I think for me, what is obvious is that (the 6-goal aberration aside) our defence is excellent. Maybe with the exception of a new goalie before the following season? Or will Friedel still be in the sticks next year?
What is also sadly obvious is that we are not much of a creative threat thus far this season. we have a number of issues -
1) gabby being injured,
2) Carew being off form,
and 4) Young playing up front and not on the wing.
I was ashamed with us playing a 5-man defence yesterday against the blues, and therefore unsurprised with the 0-0 result.
For me, young needs to go back on the left, with Marc on the right, and a new quality forward partnering Gabby up front - someone who can head the ball as a large part of our game is reliant on crosses into the box. We're still early into the season - only just over a quarter of the games have gone, but we certainly need to improve from where we are, and I'm sure we shall!
