I don’t know what’s best for the club at the moment. But I ask Dr. Xia to be honest with himself and honest with the supporters. He cannot dally. He needs to come out acting as decisively as he can at each juncture if he’s to remain in charge. And if he can’t do that, he has to admit that he’s not the man to clean up after himself.
There’s lots of talk around Villa at the moment, and none of it’s good. Especially since it seems like it’s only now beginning to sink in that the money woes many were talking about are all too real, and that there are no easy answers.
Midweek, or close enough, and Villa find themselves safely locked in the promotion lottery following back-to-back 1-0 victories over Cardiff and Leeds. Accomplished with three games to go, it might have been a bit dicier than we would’ve liked.
At the weekend, Villa somehow put four past Sheffield Wednesday while conceding only two. I’m not sure how that came about, so I guess we all just say thank you very much and move on. There are some other things to consider, however.
As I have thought about our trip to Elland Road, which seems a lifetime ago, we had some interesting things to ponder after. A rough first half, a better second, subs that changed the game, a point salvaged, and a final stretch that looked more likely to see Villa grab a winner.
