Have Villa turned the corner? Looking over recent results I noted that since the miserable away defeat to Fulham, the Villans have lost only two of their last seven Premier League fixtures. Moreover, those two losses came at the hands of the two Manchester clubs - first and second in the league.
This suggests that, despite our inexperience, the players are working hard for the manager and that we have become difficult to beat. We remain woefully short of goals, which beg more questions about the Bent issue, but we can perhaps view the upcoming fixture list with slightly less trepidation. A victory against in form Stoke would be a real shot in the arm although a draw seems more likely.
Statistics make interesting reading. Our current points-per-game tally leaves us on course for around 36 points and likely relegation. However, in the last seven games we earned 1.28 points per game. If this were to continue for the remaining twenty three we would finish on a more healthy 44. In eight matches against teams in the top ten we have secured only five points. In the seven outings against teams in the bottom ten we have secured nine points.
Statistics can be presented to make any argument, but all this suggests that we have enough to beat the drop. A couple of astute signings in January can only improve our chances.
Disappointingly, most match-day threads still include a few 'Lambert out` posts. Our club needs consistency. We do not have a bottomless pit of money to burn. A decision has been made and a course set.
Let`s get behind the manager and his young lions. VTID!!
