Villa In No More Long Ball Shocker!

Villa In No More Long Ball Shocker!

The shortest article on Vital ever... but sometimes only a very few words are needed.

Paul Lambert has said:

"We'll try and play football - I don't like long ball.'

Won`t that be nice, proper football at Villa Park for the first time in nearly a decade!

Disgraceful... football is meant to be played up in the air isn't it?! Must admit, hated the style of play (if you can call it that) under MON, GH tried but failed to change it and then last year, well, that was the very worst.

What did Clough (senior) once say ?!?! -- 'If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he'd have put grass up there'.

Disagree with you a little about MON, The Fear. Villa briefly came close to challenging for the title/CL place Villa under MON. During that short spell that team played some terrific football. The counter-attcking style that MON and the players seemed to stumble upon was nice to watch. It was probably more accident than design though. MON had been forced to go 4-5-1/4-3-3 from 4-4-2 after an injury to a key player. If I recall correctly?

I don't know what the style was like under the last manager because I wasn't watching.
