What next?

Post  villainies on Mon May 20, 2013 12:24 pm

We clung on to top flight football for another season and even managed to show a bit of quality towards the end of the season. Take out Tekkers though and we were down and there lies the problem. If we can't keep Tekkers we will be fighting relegation again next season.

Lambert has said we won't be spending so expect another batch of kids/lower league players to patch up the weaknesses in our squad.

Its going to be a long slow process for Lambert but at least Randy has confidence in him and will give him some time. In this league anything below 8th is a fail for a club like ours and that is what I EXPECT next season. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/22556883

Villa wont reach 8th ....mid table at best ...11 - 12 Randy wont unleash the cheque book so thats a realistic place in the table.

Eighth is a realistic target for us and ten other clubs. I expect Hull and whoever wins the playoffs to gostraight back down. I fancy Stoke,Albion and Fulham all to struggle as well. We'll be fine.

Plus there's nowt wrong with bringing a young team on - a team that grows together gets stronger together. You'll be alright - it'd be nice to keep the key players so you've got a balance but if someone leaves I'm pretty sure Lambert will have a replacement in mind.

WBA and Swansea have hardly broke the bank this season, did either of them spend £7 million on a striker? From last summers window, Randy certainly seems prepared to compete with the majority of the league in terms of paying transfer fee's.

I think we should definitely be aiming 8th, I would have thought that everyone below the teams that finished top 7 will be aiming to finish at least 8th next season.

Lambert said he's got money to buy players - just not superstars on big money.

He's done well with the players he's bought so I look forward to seeing who he's going to sign.

Richard Dunne has gone cheers cheers cheers

Hopefully Bent Ireland Hutton Given Bannan will follow him out of the door.. maybe even N Zog if someone wants him..

We need a CB for sure.. a strong midfielder and an attacking midfielder too.. we def need goals from midfield.. which is piss poor in that department right now.. plus we will need a ST to replace Bent..

I think PL will bring in a couple from abroad and a few from lower leagues.. Hopefully he can pull of a few more coups like Benteke Westwood etc

Also we need to SORT the defending out.. no clean sheet since the December is shambolic..

Would love to see us maybe go for Pierre-emerick Aubameyang... second leading goal scorer in the French league behind Ibrahimovic..

His fee might be around 7M ( same as Benteke ) but his wages won't be too out of our reach.. could play in the three attacking system we play..

Hopefully there's more big earners to leave.

Given, Dunne, Ireland, Bent are all on 50k+ a week.

Ironically, the players we are letting go we need to replace in the same positions. We need to sign another back up goalie, an experienced CB, a playmaker/winger, and get Benteke and Weimann new deals. Think we also need a new LB or at least someone to push Bennett into knowing he has competition in that area.

Wise words, Jpr.
I see a good spirit in the Villa side. They'll do ok next season.
