    There is always a ‘boss’ of the back line, somebody who calls step-ups, line position, who-marks-who, and sorts out the players from midfield and attack who drop back for corners and free kicks giving them someone to mark. That player is usually the skipper if he is a defender. However if the skipper is off the field somebody else in the back line HAS to take over the role.

    I think I can explain what you saw, because Richards is obviously the boss when he is playing, but I do not think he is very good at it. So in his absence at Soton it is possible the temporary boss did a better job than Richards.

    Clark has been a massive disappointment, not progressing this year the way he did last season. IMO Richards is a full back not a centre half, and Villa lack any Melberg like player now.

    Originallondonlion, spot on ,you do need someone that reads the game and see the dangers, its not all about seniors its about knowing the game.Clark never will, Richards concentrates on his game , I’d like to see that pairing again I just don’t trust Clark,

    In truth none of our back four players inspire confidence. The goalkeeper isn’t good enough and is a real liability with the ball at his feet. That can’t help. The best defences are generally the ones that are settled, but our first choices when played together have looked shaky. They haven’t had enough protection in front of them either. Put that all together and it’s a recipe for disaster.

    And that’s without looking at our creative and attacking problems. Garde is getting time with the squad now, so hopefully he will sort this out. It’s a massive task though, and I’m really not expecting the January window to provide the answers.

      Problem is if we are only a few points adrift in Jan it’s worth spending but if say we are ten points adrift then it’s pointless literally

    Now Okore is fit, I’d like to se Richards at RB (his natural and best position), Okore and Lescot as the 2 CB’s and Ashley Cole as left back if we can get him till Amavi comes back.

      Are we talking Madrid’s world class AM, James Rodriguez? Are we really linked to him because if we are, then the media’s gone totally bazerk.

      We won’t get Vidic at all, no real reason to bring him in with Okore back, awful CB now, has been garbage at Inter.

      Be surprised if we get Cole.

      How Utd are fourth is a joke take de gea out that side and they’d be mid table at best. Who’d of thought Bournemouth would beat Chelsea and Utd. Bad news for us even a draw is no good tomorrow. We need to just try to win or lose but hopefully get enough wins. No chance tomorrow we will need at least 3 goals just to get a draw

      The Cherries are down the table because they have 2 crap goalkeepers to our 1, but even Boric’s second fatal fumble tonight was not costly against a toothless Manure. The score could have been 4-1 if Murray had shown some composure.

      Bournemouth defeating Chelsea and United should prove that the guaranteed hammerings need not happen this season because those two big teams have never looked as bad.

      Arsenal come straight from a great victory in Europe, and they put 12 past us last year without reply. With a full squad I would back them to get 6 tomorrow, but with the injuries they have if we can score first they might start creaking, we have to target their stand-ins.

      I think so to he will only spend if we have a realistic chance of staying up or he will just take the hit. We deserve to go down now we are a nothing team that could be in the wilderness for many years to come like leeds

          It smacks as if the whole of the premiership want Aston Villa to drop, might be all players revolts to paying low wages and what our club was up to. I cannot believe we have a chance to stay up now, Lerner and his henchman have ruined our club. Yes your right he will not give money now he’d rarther get what he can, no owner sits in another world and says I’m for Villa.
