Worst EVER Home Record Looming For McLeish

Worst EVER Home Record Looming For McLeish

Oh dear. Alex is currently presiding over our worst home record in Villa`s history, unless I`ve got my facts wrong - if so, feel free to let me know.

Having looked through the excellent www.statto.com it appears we need the last two home games v Bolton and Spurs to be wins in order to save us from this embarrassment.

We`ve won just four at home this season, drawing six and obviously losing the other seven.

Villa only have seven wins all season. We have 15 draws and 12 losses.

We are currently on 36 points. Our lowest ever in the PL was 42 points in 2004/2005 season.

One thing we`ve always 'clung onto` as a massively underachieving Club, is to at least be the best in the Midlands. We are currently 3rd best with Stoke and the Baggies hovering just above us on 42 points.

Want anymore depressing stats?

Here you go then...

Current form see`s us 19th and we have 1 win in 12 games (v Fulham). The last PL win before that was away to Wolves. We`ve not had back to back wins in the League even once this season.

Percentage wins 21% ... draws 44% ... losses 35%

Not at all a negative manager. Ouch.

with the predictor, IF we lose to Bolton on Tuesday, I have us down. If we win, we stay up.

Surely any businessman looks at that performance and realises its not good enough? Its actually business and not really football related.

I couldn't go to the game yesterday due to my mum's birthday, but my mate who I normally sit with said the Holte were chanting "Alex, Alex, you're a prat" during the 2nd half - anyone know if that's true?

With our style of play, I just cant see where the goals are going to come from to keep us up.

Just hope and pray we get one of those once in a while 'shock' results where we win, whether by good play or luck! Painful at the moment and to be fair, the goal Sunderland got yesterday should not have been ruled off side, so we get a slice of luck (due from MON I think) there!

Bristol: that's true. One point missed is that Randy is NOT a businessman - he is a lawyer, I believe, and there is a big difference in the thought processes of the two. It's probably the first time on PL history that we went into a campaign looking to hold on and not to win something. The more I see the more I am convinced that McLeish was told that his job this year was survival, nothing more, to see the club through a period of cost cutting. What was not thought about was the reaction such a policy would engender and it here that the board has come unstuck. You have to have ambition and a 'dream' to scrape by ain't a dream.

Looks like we are relying on spurs, with our biggest game of the season being Blackburn v Wigan.......can't see Villa winning another game unless we are already down going into the Norwich game

just done the predictor, I have us staying up on goal difference at the expense of blackburn bolton and wolves. i predicted we wouldn't win another match but that all below us with the exception of wolves would win at least one
