Onwards & upwards we go, regardless if we make the top ten or not after playing our last four games. It’s fair to say it’s been a fairly successful season for Aston Villa football club. 2020/21 as seen us make significant improvement.
Of course it could have been even better. But given where we were twelve months ago. Villa fans have to be content with the progress made this campaign.
Our transfer business last summer has been the catalyst to our progress this season. So I am really excited at the prospect of what Johan Lange may deliver this summer. Quality additions that improve our starting 11 are a must. The fact we will not be seen as potential relegation candidates can only help Johan achieve this.
Ambitions & Aspirations
We have owners who are very ambitious make no mistake about that. If they have to make changes to achieve that ambition or speed that process up, then they will.
Like our owners we all have our preferences. I’m sure we’re all aware by now, that some of our fanbase would like to see a Dean Smith replaced at the end of this season. I have heard many reasons why he needs replacing. But I have not heard a single valid reason to date. Honestly you would think we have not seen progression every season under Dean Smith since his arrival.
We will have to agree to disagree on this one because for me, Dean Smith has not only earned the right to continue in his role next season, but to spend big on two or three quality additions.
If you think Dean Smith should have taken us into Europe this season. Then tell me the last team who went from staying up on the last game of the previous season, to then qualifying for Europe the following season?.
The Table Never Lies
Onwards & upwards, our owners have invested heavily in our club & continue to do so. But they have not invested the amount it takes to challenge for European places in reality. They’re slowly putting all the elements in place that will enable Villa to have the best chance of challenging for honours going forward.
So with further investment this summer, what positions do you think Villa need to invest in to improve our starting 11 next season?.
I know a lot of our fans hold some of our youth in high esteem, but until they physically mature they’re unlikely to be able to compete at the top level yet regardless how good a baller they are.
I apologise for neglecting my duties. It’s unexcusable really, but I have had some personal issues and demons to deal with. My right hand man Begley who stepped up to the plate during my prolonged absence, as now gone AWOL. So it’s been quite a while since a new leader was put up.
It’s been a challenge typing out a leader on a mobile, what with my big fingers & little keys. Not that it’s a valid excuse for churning out this load of tripe, but i promise to endeavour in the future so please accept my apologies.
