Villa Park Advantage What Curse? Sir Alex As Retired

Villa v Man United at Villa Park, You have to go back almost 25 Years to when Alan Hansen once famously said: “you can’t win anything with kids” to find the last time Aston Villa beat the red devils in the Premier League at Villa Park. Unfortunately, the younger generations of Villa fans are still waiting to witness such an event. But while their wait continues, spare a thought for us poor sods who have had to endure and live through the nightmare.

Since that day, Villa’s as only managed to obtain five Premier League draws at Villa Park against Manchester United. It’s a shocking statistic, but regardless of that, Villa fans will still be hoping Dean Smith and Villa can end the red devil curse this Thursday. I suspect most fans would take a point now, given our record and precarious position.

Performances

I know they have been so rare, but if we can produce a similar type of performance we witnessed up at Anfield at the weekend, then we do give ourselves a fighting chance. Of course, there were always going to be inconsistencies in our play at the start of the season. I think we all accepted this probability, but I for one never anticipated just how long they would continue, or how rare decent performances would become. It does appear, players, gelling time is now something that occurs in front of the mirror and not on the training pitch.

Five-game Season

Given what I have said above, it’s hard to believe in us suddenly turning our fortunes around. But stranger things have happened. We have five games left to achieve survival. Three of those are at Villa Park, all five games are winnable, and as you’re only as good as your last performance, it should be a walk in the park. But I won’t be greedy, 7 points, two wins and a draw should see us over the line.

Imagine beating the red devils, and how much of a lift that would give the players and the fan base. I can assure you I have not touched a drop, I’m just dreaming, but should Villa happen to beat Manchester United this week. I will need to get the fermenting bucket out earlier than I anticipated.

hi lads,
i think the blame has to be shared out amongst 3 people.
Perslow for giving DS a 4 year contract instead of his cards.
Suso for a terrible set of signings in the summer bar one,and thats luiz but there again he is playing well to get away.
and DS for his signings as well.bar Mings and even he is shell shocked at this time.

apart from norwich,we were the next worst squad to play in the prem this season.
now how much that is down to the players,or DS being stubborn is anybodys guess.

for me,i can only see a whole new set up being put into place yet again.
time for Rafa.
some even knock him,but the liverpool and newcastle fans rate him,so he cant be that bad a shout

He still did what spud couldn’t in 3 seasons
to be honest not given much thought to who takes the hot seat next – only considered smith might get sack in PL and not if we return to chumps

I will be for ever grateful for their intervention in stopping us going through the wall, but It’s too early for me to think along those lines given what they said about being promoted a year in advance besides it was not Lerners money was it

For the 1st time in my life villa are on and I am sitting watching CSI Miami,just had quick look on fb to see how it’s going and all I see is whinging about var,3weeks ago it saved us,but for the live of God Smith sending a 2 man midfield for 2 ND match in a row is stupid as is the thought of giving him more time
He said we weren’t fit enough before lockdown ,we said last November,when trez was scoring he never started him,puts jota on v Chelsea and Liverpool not sheff it’s or Newcastle,Smith is worse than Bruce ,never did I think I would write that about another villa manager

FM we just never get a break do we, playing reasonably well, hit the post, Grealish can’t bury a sitter and terrible penalty decision given.
Come on Villa !
