Villa Southampton; not much to say. Oh, i forgot about Okore

Well, this one is going to be brief, as the truth is that now we’re relegated, it doesn’t really matter does it?
I can’t see beyond yet another loss, given that Southampton are playing for the Europa league and our bunch of mugs generally couldn’t care less.

I suppose that’s a bit unfair really, as I’m sure some do care, but they seem few and far between.

Sod it, I’m not going to mince my words anymore and this is another loss, plain and simple, as any Premier league side is miles better than what we are.

My previous prediction, a few weeks ago, where I suggested we wouldn’t get another point this season was somewhat tongue in cheek.
But I’m now suspecting it will prove accurate.
Yes, we’re that bad.

Richardson and Clark are injury worries and their fitness will be reviewed in the morning.
But Richardson even being a worry just shows the state we’re in.
I’ve said it before, but the bloke is so average (at best), it’s unbelievable.
And it’s exactly why we are where we are.

But we all know this.

As for Southampton, well, I don’t care, they could play their kids (now that’s a proper academy, that produces players and not statistics) and they’d probably beat us.

The score?

Well, I reckon we might get 1.
Nah, sod it again.


As for Okore, what a dirty lowlife rat he’s turned out to be.
I got something right in previously suggesting that there was more to him being demoted to the development squad, than his load of crap quotes were suggesting.

Ok, he thinks he’s better than the Villa.
That’s fair enough and indeed, I do have some sympathy for him.
How he doesn’t get a start over Lescott is beyond me, at face value.
But with an attitude like his, where he’s made it plain he wants out, it’s hardly a surprise is it?

This has all been done before, with lots of players over the years, but it strikes me the problem is rapidly becoming a media one.

How long before players are banned from Twitter and suchlike, as part of their contracts?

All that said, he can do one, for all I care.
He’s just another lightweight who won’t be man enough for the job next season.

Man, I’m regretting us getting shot of Albrighton even more, now I think about that again.
Now he’s one who would have fought for the club and would tear the championship a new one.
Yet another decision that shows those in charge just didn’t have a clue.

Anyway, I’m beginning to ramble.
Did I say we’d lose?

    With you Pat57, we’ve had enough lies from Villa park.

    Black is quoted in the Times saying he does not want to bring youngsters into the team because of the toxic atmosphere at Villa Park.

    The cause of the toxic atmosphere has been his & Garde’s persistence with poor players, many of them in the wrong positions. So the fans turn up after the last home debacle and see the same clowns in the same shirts – no changes. You have to be dim to expect that – if five or six youngsters were fielded – the crowd would not switch to all out encouragement. Of course they would, it is only the optimistic fans who are still turning up!

    Is the toxic attitude unique to Villa Park? No it is less toxic than Bloomfield Road and about the same as the (far from happy) Valley. There is another ground which turns very sour come April every year, the Emirates. In this case the fans are seeing the all too familiar late fade by Arsenal who begin every August like world-beaters. Predictable but nothing done, that is what annoys the fans there and at VP.

    Every non-Villa fan I know thinks the Villa Park fans are very fair compared with the one-eyed knuckle-scrapers at Anfield or Old Trafford.

      The Arsenal comparison shows just how fickle fans can be: five titles and five FAC wins, and nineteen years successive CL qualification [not checked the exact numbers but think they’re correct !] – yet Wenger seems to have been getting tons of abuse near the end of each season for the last few years.

      What would Villa fans give for that sort of record – or would we all be moaning that the team won’t win the EPL again, and hasn’t managed to reach the CL finals?

    Great news Bill – something to celebrate in this annum horribilis! – seeing as they have been claiming the Queen’s a Villa fan.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
