Sunderland 3 – 1 Villa; that’s exactly why we’re going down

There’s an old saying that says you make your own luck.
And the simple fact is we have none whatsoever.

Today summed up everything that says we’re going down and if anyone still believes it’s not true, well I’m afraid I can only say you’re deluded.

We were the better side for the first half hour until Sunderland scored from a long distance shot that got deflected leaving Guzan no chance.

Then we bought Traore on, who scared the crap out of their defenders and did well to set up Gil for the equaliser.
And then what happened?
Off he goes with yet another injury.

And then Defoe gets a chance where he only has one place to shoot (the near post) and Guzan doesn’t have it covered.
Shocking goalkeeping from a goalie whose confidence is shot.

Next up was a Sunderland corner, where it seemed we had 4 defenders near the corner flag trying to defend and no-one where it mattered, after some comical defending, resulting in Guzan again passing to one of our players only for him not to know it was coming and the opposition scored again.

I could go on about how the performance wasn’t too bad against another equally shocking side.
But what’s the point?

It ultimately boils down to the fact that if we can’t get a win against Sunderland, where do we see a single win coming from?

Wycombe up next in the cup isn’t it?
You just know they’ll want it more and I’m dreading it.

I have to hold my hands up here and say that if I was Lerner, I’d be looking very closely at what sort of players the manager wants to get in.
If any targets are aimed at Premier league survival, I’d say forget it.

This team needs dismantling, as too many of our squad just aren’t good enough for the Villa.

That said, I saw the look on Garde’s face a few times and it was pretty emotionless.
I suspect he knows what we are.
And it’s frankly rubbish.

May can’t come soon enough.

      Apparently no one rates him at Villa and he’ll likely sign for Preston permanently on a free. Not surprising that.

    I would like to think Villa could build a good side in the Championship but I do not think they have the essentials behind the scenes. I think we will be making a comeback from Div 1. Lerner has to go but I do not think he will with just the one relegation.

    The critical thing we have lost – is a nucleus of good players, even if it was only 3 or 4, who tried their best all the time and had the fans 100% behind them. If you have that you can add on other whole-hearted players and at some point stabilise the club. The fans don’t like any of the current team except Amavi and Traore. One is out for the season, the other is injury prone. the rest clearly don’t care. So to my mind we start with a bunch of kids from the youth team who at least have some commitment and throw them in, obviously that means throwing all the current team out, but they are so damn bad it won’t matter. We might fail to survive in the Championship but we will eventually have a team the fans can get behind.

    Needless to say the people who have any imput on what happens on the pitch need to be football people with a record of success. That means the boot for all those currently involved in this debacle.

      Just gets worse doesn’t it?

      Wish I could hibernate for the next six or seven years and come out at a time when we might have the chance of being a half decent team.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
