Something. Anything. Normally I’d be asking for three points, but based on what I’ve seen lately, I’d settle for a draw as the Baggies come calling at Villa Park.
Another week, another draw. I liked Deano’s appraisal, that he was angry but might see it differently with a bit of perspective. He liked the fightback, but thought the team, with a little help from the officials, had not done what was required. Me, l liked the fight. I also disliked its necessity. Good and bad things to say about the team and/or performance.
Draws, draws, draws. Villa don’t lose very often, but they don’t win enough, either. With Sheffield United paying us a visit tonight, and three games in the next week, Villa can make a statement of intent and get right back in the mix, or they can perhaps start wrapping their heads around another year in the Championship.
Reading vs. Aston Villa match thread
It’s been another quiet week at Villa Park as the window starts to close and none of the rumored deals are happening yet. So, Villa will host Ipswich Town having the usual suspects to choose from. And there are a couple of interesting game day choices, namely that Glenn Whelan comes back into the side and Andre Green doesn’t make the bench.
