The Sky sports predictor forecasts 15th; Sigh

Roll on the end of the boring international break.
And now England are going to whore themselves out by playing two countries that haven’t qualified for the World cup.
That’ll be useful then, won’t it?
Money, money, money. I’m bloody sick of it; in the game at least.

Anyway, getting to the point, the Daily Express have pointed out that the Sky sports predictor has us finishing the season in 15th place;

You have to laugh.
Or at least I do, because I have yet to see any Villa fan on any site whatsoever, predict that we’ll finish so low.
I know there might be a few Bruce haters that might think it, but I’m yet to read any comments predicting that.
Mid-table, maybe.
And while I’m not confident in the slightest that we’ll win the league (I predicted border-line play-offs) there’s no chance that this will prove correct and I’d take any reasonable bet on behalf of charity that says it will happen.

The one possibly good point is that the predictor sees Blues coming bottom.
But I don’t see that happening either, as we never get what the majority of us want, do we?

Apparently the predictor is based on an algorithm that is grounded in chess. Enough said, in my opinion.
Because the two games have lots in common, don’t they?

As I suggested, roll on the proper footy.
QPR up next and I think…..

Oops, that’s for another day.

    I think Sulliman should be thrown in, or at least make the bench. No reason why he shouldn’t get a chance.

    Think if it’s between the two likely ones though, Jedinak should start next to Chester. His positioning is better and he can read the game a hell of a lot better than Samba can. Samba’s only attribute is his size.

    QPR are a very interesting side. They go from drawing 2 of the worst sides in the league in Bolton and Sunderland, to beating the top 2 sides in Wolves and Sheffield United, to getting smashed by Forest.

    for once i agree with the above statement, youth players like davis are never gonna make the step up until they are given a chance. sulliman has been in our youth set up and england set up for years. he has good all round game and able to play out of defence. unlike most of the centre backs of days gone past. centre backs in this day and age need to be able to pass out under pressure unlike the old nonsense defending row z or punt down field.

    bruce will play it safe with the more experienced players. but davis has shown the way. sometimes a little risk taking may yield another gem. if we were in the premiership most of our youth players would be loaned in the championship. bruce might be holding them back too much. watching them in preseason and the cup games, we have some talented youth and they should be getting more of a look in.

    the defeat at the hands of wednesday. we were never in that game, outclassed for all first half and only came into the game in terms making chances when grealish and ohare came on. game was lost and they never changed the result. but they both did more than we managed in the whole game before they arrived. grealish plays with his head up. looking to pass forwards. also with wednesday pressing grealish was able to get past his marker. ohare made runs was more busy he also crossed for samba tap in. that goal was made by grealish crossed by ohare.

    final thought. next season if we fook up this season these kids will all be thrown in. because no sky handout will mean loads of cutting wages. so blood the youth in now at least they can get 20 minutes here and there preparing them for the future our future,

    we need to play safe until Terry and Kodjia come back – grind out some results and protect our Terry-less back 4. 451 /4411 will do the job – we created loads at Blues when we did it the other week.
    Johnstone
    Elmohmady Chester Elphick/Samba Taylor
    Snodgrass Whelan Jedinak Adomah
    Hourihane or Onomah
    Davis

    This formation also did well against Norwich at home.Six points from the next three will keep us ticking over.

      Bruce is a first class Cockwomble! Fancy letting an injured striker go out in international duty. Bruce has to go he’s a clown

    arsenal /spuds draw palace/everton draw cardiff home wednesday home and wolves away 2 pounds pays 140.00 i have been on form lately. but the internationals might have disrupted me.

    its unfortunate to lose players and annoying when they pick up the niggles when away playing for their countries. but we have a big squad all earning good money time to earn your crust. like oohahaha posted earlier ohare created two for england and will make the step up into the first team with villa given the chance just like davis

    Already know Bruce is going to use the injuries as an excuse to cover up his poor management and tactics. We still should have more than enough against the three teams coming up. Has to be 9 points otherwise automatic hopes are finished in November and that would be a disgrace

    What a surprise Ohaha and jv both make an appearance when we were losing. Now we’re winning there’s no sign of them.

    And they call themselves Villa fans. #laughable.

    IN BRUCE I TRUST.

    UTV.

        Paranoid as well as brainless. Your future is bleak.

        BADGER, CAN YOU TELL THIS MORONIC IDIOT THAT I’M THE ORIGINAL B6. HE’S CONVINCED HIMSELF I’M LANGFORD.

        Every time Villa win his weekend is ruined. Unfortunately for him he’s going to have a lot more ruined weekends for the next 6 months or so.

      Best win we’ve had since Bruce joined us imo. Especially with our injuries and going a goal down

        Well done you Villa boys! Just keep beating what’s in front of us. Not sure how our Icelandic player even gets in the squad, let alone on the pitch.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
