Prediction

Post  jpr60 on Thu Aug 16, 2012 3:56 pm

That footballing genius Robbie Savage has predicted Villa for the drop this coming season - "the manager's good but the team is poor" - is his take, in a nutshell.

He's not a fan of Villa, when we luckily came 9th under Houllier, his summary was something like "Villa would have been relegated if it wasnt for there been 3 worse teams than them."

He's entitled to his opinion, dare say there'll be a fair few who agree with him, fair enough. My opinion is that with the current squad we should be fairly comfortable in mid table with the likes of Fulham and Sunderland. I think 8th at best, 12th at worst with around 50 points. Points wise we'll be closer to 18th than 4th. Not expecting to see us pushing for Europe as we were a couple of seasons back but the squad is better than last season and we were chronic underachievers last term. Time will tell whether Vlaar and Almahdi (sp) can hack the Prem but they do have plenty of experience. Added to the likes of Given, Bent and the much maligned Dunne we are pretty comfortable. The kids have an extra season's experience behind them and have shown in patches there is some real talent there. We'll be fine, much better that last season's shitfest.

Our first team is poor, the squad is weak. He isn't the only one suggesting we are relegation candidates. If any 'established team is going to be in the scrap I think Villa are the best shout. Personally I think we'll survive but wouldn't be surprised at all if we're firmly in the bottom 6.

I agree with QB, I think our points total will be 50 points and it's where that gets us to finish. I think we will win enough games to keep us out of relegation trouble, but can't see us threatening Europe.

Certainly need to make a few more signings before the close of the transfer window.

It isn't just about the quality of the Villa squad it's also about the quality of the rest of the division. We'll be fine. Stop being such a flange

The quicker we hit 40 points the better.

I reckon we'll have some high scoring games this season. IMO, we'll be ok, anywhere between 7th and 14th is a big improvement on last season.

I think we are in a better position than last season, better squad and most certainly a better manager. Still think we need to add another couple of players at least, but am optimistic for the season
