Ok, the truth is it’s a bit of a nothing post, just something aimed at reminding you that we are still actually here.
We’ve got the World Cup to talk about and it has indeed been brilliant up until now, the disgraceful Hondurans apart; but apart from Vlaar playing a blinder the other night (disregard what Oohah says, although that’s just my opinion), there’s nothing really going on at the Villa to talk about.
Even the papers are struggling to find anything of interest to comment on, which given their propensity for printing utter rubbish says it all.
So I thought I’d expand things a little bit, seeing as where I’m working, there’s a good mix of club supporters.
While the Wolves fan I speak to is understandably quite happy, he has been asking what’s going on at the Villa, the (spit) and the Baggies.
Even the Stokey I regularly chat footy with, has stopped trying to wind me up, as I think he’s realised this joke isn’t funny any more.
It’s a sad situation all round, isn’t it?
We appear to be stuck without an imminent buyer for the club, regardless of all the rumours and judging by the signings we’ve made up until now, we aren’t going to be buying any players that I want us to sign.
IE, mid twenties, up and coming and more importantly PROVEN, at some decent level. Far too expensive that, when we have an owner who’s looking to get money back in, let alone invest.
So all in all, more than depressing.
But then, just where we think things are bad, the (spit) are way worse off than us.
They’re signing players at levels even below them, on loan and it’s all doom and gloom.
The sadistic part of me thinks it’s quite funny, but when I put my sensible head back on, I just see the parallels.
We’re both seriously struggling.
And then there’s Albion’s latest appointment.
What’s that all about?
A manager who hasn’t managed since 2011 and failed abysmally in the lower leagues?
How does that even get him in the running for a Premier league club?
And on a rolling 12 month contract, at that?
It hardly inspires confidence, does it?
And we thought Lerner was bad!
