A Happy Festive Period For Villa?

A Happy Festive Period For Villa?


AVbornandbred hoping for a Happy festive period for AVFC

We are all aware of our current league position and the sorry tale of this season has been discussed many times.

Starting with the departure of Mr O'Neil which without wanting to open an old wound many believe was deliberately timed to cause maximum disruption to our beloved club, followed by the protracted search for a manager and backroom staff and the ensuing redevelopment of the club and changing of the playing style.

Gerard Houlier's attempts to revolutionise the playing style of the club have been hampered by an amazing injury list, the like of which we haven't seen for many a year coupled with a loss of form of key players as they struggled to adapt to the change in playing style. Surely though we have cause for optimism, the premiership is tight, we are only three points off of 8th place and senior players are returning to fitness to lend experience to our obviously talented youngsters.

I thought so and was quietly optimistic until I looked at the fixture list, our next three games, Spurs, Citeh and Chelski, anyone see us pulling clear of the relegation zone before January?

Follow that lot with a visit from high flying Sunderland, a must win at the sty, the return of Citeh and a trip to Old Trafford and it could well be the middle of feb and the visit of Fulham before we see an up turn in form, but by then will it be too late? We need an heroic effort from the lads and fans alike over the festive season here's hoping for a Happy Christmas and New Year, it doesn't get much tougher than this.

Let's hope so! 6 points from the the next 12 and that would be brilliant. But 12/12 would be a brilliant xmas present! Also does anyone know anything about Sidwell's deal? Are we getting money for him or is it a loan deal until his contract expires just to get him off the wage bill?
