Lowton Confident Our Fortunes Will Change

Lowton Confident Our Fortunes Will Change

Matthew Lowton has said he believes Villa have the quality to turn our current predicament around if given time, because he doesn't believe we are playing that badly.

Speaking to the Official Site Lowton talked about his frustration with the Villa result because of how close a game he felt it was, and one moment of sloppy defending has again cost us at least a point:

'We have to keep our belief, we aren't playing badly. We have gone to these places and played very well. It took a fantastic goal at Newcastle to peg us back, we should have gone ahead against Tottenham and we were fantastic up until 84 minutes against Fulham.'

To be fair most fans would disagree with the assessment of us being 'fantastic' until Fulham scored and they did look the more likely to score in the game, so maybe we should go for 'good for a point' as more reflecting the performance until 84 minutes?

'It's tough to take because the performances are there, we are just not getting the results. It's difficult accepting conceding a goal from a corner, it won't be the best corner he's ever taken by a long way, it was sloppy from us - we switched off. We have to start turning it around and get more clean sheets.'

Lowton finishes by talking about our Swansea performance and his belief that we can replicate that for the Norwich visit this weekend.

Well to be fair we are up and down at the moment, so we are due an up again aren't we!

Lets be clear about the spuds and fulham games - we were still in it in the last quarter of the game due to lacklustre finishing by both teams early on - we were lined up for the counter in both games but (unlike the MON counter attack heydays) we don't have the pedigree to make the chances count. Personally I wonder whether Weimann could change roles in the same way that Milner and (to some extent) Young did while they were here. So move him from a No. 10 to a No. 6 - from a "striker" to an attacking midfielder. I think he has the talent and also now, enough experience, to make the switch. Its not clear whether Ireland can entirely run things on his own, and staying with the MON comparison, we were always much better with those two together than when one was missing.......otherwise we have to sit around until January to try and buy someone who will fit into that role, and with the possible exception of Robbie Kean a good one will not be cheap.
