At Everton – Will Villa Come Unstuck At The Toffees

Away at Everton, It’s not a fixture I had ticked and had us down to get three points from, at the beginning of the season. In fairness, It’s been that way for years. Most of us will remember Ashley Young’s injury-time winner there, back in 2008. Well, that’s the last time we won up at Goodison Park.

Henley Villain who is a regular contributor on avfcvillablog.com said to me. What’s happened in the past up at Everton will have no bearing on tonight’s result. It was quite refreshing to hear, given my own thoughts, plus I also found it amusing. But only because every time we play Manchester United, I say the same thing to myself. Maybe he was just trying to stay positive and make us both feel better about Villa’s chances. I’m not sure, but I do not fancy our chances. But Henley does have a valid point it makes no difference what side or tactics Paul Lambert, Remi Garde or Tim Sherwood put out, or what the result was back then.

It’s The Here And Now Villa

Tonight result up at Everton will solely depend on Dean Smith’s tactics and team selection, and of course, the players fighting for every ball like there premier league status depends on it. Anything less, and the Toffees will be victorious, and Villa will not be sticking around the premier league next season.

So tonight, it must happen for Villa on the pitch, there are no more second chances or room for error. We must repeat what those players of 2008 achieved, and come away from Goodison Park victorious, So the fans dream of a great escape can remain a possibility.

The Mathematicians among us will already know there are permutations where a draw or loss tonight will not immediately end Villa’s season. That scenario really would be clutching at straws, so lets not kid ourselves. In terms of carrying some momentum forward, and ultimately achieving survival via our last two games, Villa must surely rack up our second win in 4 days or the dream is over.

I think it really boils down to a total inability to hold the ball and close a game down, corner flag, defensive high line, short passes. We’ve always struggled with a simple Plan B to close a game out.
Dropped 19 points from winning positions this season & conceded 17 goals in the last 15 minutes.
Sack JT
Sack Smith

Early golf this morning so just finished watching ?
My God when are we going to learn to just keep the ball and see out a game, so disappointing. Jack hung onto the ball too long all game then when we need him to do it he’s making fast passes to no one for glory. Gastly miss from El Ghastly ! It would have been 3 points in the bag, commentator said we haven’t won back to back since last October & you can see why.
Smith should have used some subs we worked hard for the win some were just too tired. I could see it coming tbh, Why not put on Nakamba to break up play?
I’m upset with that result we had the game won, villa all over, i should be used to it by now. JT worst defensive coach in the league.

As if i didn’t think so a few games back, I think we are gone now, knowing this lot heads will drop. Relying on others (how many chances did we have last 10 games) and beating Arsenal & West ham it really would be a miracle.
Think realistically Smith needs to go, Terry for certain & probably Suso.

We had the game won FFS !

So disappointing yet again. Had the game won and it should have been confirmed but for that fantastic goal line clearance from El ghastly.
We were all living in hope that we could win the game, but once again we switched off and paid the price.
Shouldnt be surprised though, after taking the lead we sat deeper and deeper until the inevitable happened.
We are now past the point of no return and after a solitary season mixing with the big boys now find ourselves back amongst the also rans.
A massive set back which could take years to recover from.

Haven’t looked like scoring , and as its a must win game, not a must not lose, we need a goal from somewhere. It may take a piece of magic from someone. At least we are still in it and can have some hope that we can break them down.
