Would just love Villa to show some bottle ... forge out a win ... backs to the wall stuff ... leave nothing in the tank at the end of 94 minutes ( I've accounted for our injury time lapses) .... Talk of Lambert from Norwich rather see Rogers from Swansea !!!!!

For me it all rests on other results. Can't see QPR or Blackburn picking up any points this weekend. Of course if we could just scrape a lucky win at the Baggies we'd be fine. But I don't hold out much hope for anything going right.

Due to the total lack of bottle throughout the team I do not see any points from the last 3 games. We just do not have a leader that can roar us on to hold onto a lead. gabby is not the man. I actually think (No not because he is Irish) Dunne would be a huge bonus at this very vital stage. He is strong, vocal and knows what is needed, just look at thr Russia v Ireland game. With him just maybe without him I do not see where will get even a point. The baggies will be out to doom us, Spurs are long overdue some good games and the cannaries will want to finish on a high at home. will we be relegated? probably, will I be 100% Villa afterword, no, I will be 150%.

Goal difference could be the key, and thankfully, that's in our favour.

I voted 100% absolutely yes we are going down. I have used the BBC predictor thing and can't see any realistic way we stay up, the Bolton game was the crucial match. Wigan have a free pass with a garaunteed 3 pts against wolves on the last day. Blackburn I don't think will realistically catch us (although they have shown lately that they can do the unexpected) so its down to Bolton and QPR. Obviously both are capable of pulling off shocks as shown recently but with Bolton having the albion at their place they will probably be looking to get a point at stoke on the final day to finish above us, while QPR will be looking for a result against stoke at home. Tony Pulis holds the fate of the Villa in his hands but Stoke have nothing left to play for and looked woeful at VP recently so I see both teams getting what they need and us saying hello to the championship.

McLeish has sucked the life out of the Villa team. He is like an insatiable vampire. The desire to play attactive football and win games had been drained away. Virtually everything McLeish has done since he came to Villa Park has had a negative influence on the team and the supporters. There is no way we can recover now, it is far too late.

Would rather be a Villan than a Glasgow Rangers Supporter. Villa might go down but at least the club will still exist. Hope Randy Lerner will take the time -- whatever happens -- to do a root and branch appraisal of the whole setup. A Sporting/Football/Technical Director would be a good start (along with a new manager of course). Matthew Harding and Ken Bates began transforming Chelsea in the 90's long before Abramovich arrived. They laid the groundwork by utilizing people like Hoddle, Gullit, Vialli, Ranieri etc. They pioneered a 'continental' approach in English football. Chelsea were in the CL and winning trophies long before they had a sugardaddy/oligarch. Villa could benefit from a similar mentality. Ranieri is a free agent, btw, and apparently wants to work in English football again.
VillaWillRiseAgain
to be fair I am preparing myself to seeing Villa relegated, the only good point abt it is that McLiesh will more than likely be sacked as a result, and gives us an excuse to get rid of the tosh thats currently labelled as the senior squad.... We may go down but at least we're not noses!
Metalvillan
Stay up by 1pt, axe McLeish bring in Martinez and start the rebuilding
AdzVilla11
To coin a phrase "it's a funny old game" and I can't say definately we'll stay up or definately go down. The only thing in our favour is our goal difference, which could become crucial. Too many ifs and buts still between now and the end of the season.... but I don't like it, it's too bloody uncomfortable.
Pride of Lions
Where are all the fans who claimed they would rather be involved in a relegation scrap ('at least it would be interesting') when O'Neill was manager. You have got your wish. How come you are not leading the cheering?

Think of it like this - if QPR and Bolton win their games in hand, we'll all be level on 37 points with 2 games to go. Only our goal difference helps our sorry plight
