On the 2nd of March, Aston Villa thrashed Derby County four goals to their zero. The team was superb and fully deserved the win that they got. There was even a possibility for more goals in that match however Derby’s goalkeeper did fairly well – for example the Adomah shot that got touched by his fingertip and went out. We even managed to keep a clean sheet and they did not have a single shot on target meaning Steer could have just stood there doing nothing, but lets all hope that isn’t the attitude of the players.
Jack was vital to that game, not only bagging an absolute stunner from the Whelan corner he also was key to that first goal scored by Villa. Yesterday we worked well as a team and really turned this horrible run of form around. For example, the first goal was pure teamwork, the long ball from Grealish, to Tammy, then to Conor – the goalscorer.
According to Dean, Jack Grealish’s volley was ‘Sod’s Law’.
“We nearly called that corner routine off because he (Grealish) couldn’t hit the target yesterday (Friday) in training. Good job we didn’t! Sod’s law he did it today.”
Getting to the point, I believe and would like to hear if you believe that we should start the exact same team as Derby regardless if players are fully fit now or not. The team can certainly run rings around the Blues and with that corner routine we can have another great goal against the Blues just like Conor last season!
Overall, even though getting play-offs and not getting playoffs are in a ratio of 40:60, if we win our next few, then it can become 50-50 and you never know.
