Your thoughts?

So we are three quarters of the way throught the season. What are your thoughts on this season so far?

Are you happy with how we have done so far? are you happy with the way Mon has approached the season?

Do you feel that we have moved forward again?

And how do you think we will finish the season? will we finish 6th or higher? do you think we will win the Leaugue Cup, and do you think we will get through to the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

I dont think weve moved forward much this season, were in the same boat as last season tbh apart from we havent really challenged for 4th yet, after playing our rivals from 1st to 7th weve won 3 games drawn 5 and only lost 2 so tbf we havent done that bad we just lack consistancy infront of goal, our defence is fantastic this season but our attack has been lacking, Milners are only good attacker this season tbh.

Played 25 and have failed to score in 6 of them which isnt bad but still consider we got 1 goal in all of the 0-0 draws, wed be 4 points ahead of liverpool and 4 points behind Arsenal. Our top scorer so far this season is gabby with 10 goals, once again isnt that bad for 25 games into the season but isnt good enough for the top 4. The summer is where mon surely has to get in another striker, anyone with eyes can see were lacking a Defoe/Rooney/Torres/Tevez/Drogba....the list could go on.

to be honest i think last season we came to a full stop at the end of a sentence, as of yet, we have still not even started a new sentence,we have improved in the odd player, mon has done a good job as far as the defence is concerened, but saying that, there is still a lot of room for improvement, the midfield has really stayed static, as have the forward line,downing has not brought to the side as of yet what most of us thought he would bring. to me mon has done very little this season, we are at the same post as last year whereby we are left with tired and worn out players,i really can not work out how mons mind works. WE WILL NOT FINISH IN THE TOP 4, with a lot of luck i think 6 or 7th is the best we can hope for, as for the fa cup, at the moment, i feel, we havnt a chance with the way we are playing and the same goes for the league cup. to me it has been a dissapointing season thus far with nothing new to shout about, if we dont get the signings we need next year,i think mon should answer for it,if we have no money to buy players, then tell us and stop making stupid and feeble excuses, we are villa supporters and not brain dead wannabes, mon once again needs to get his finger out and start spending in the next window

At best we will win 2 cups and finish 4th.

At worst we will win nothing and finish outside even Europa League spot.

Anything in between for me is an improvement on last season.

I hope the management and directors can see that we need a few more midfielders and options up front. Lerner should insist that MON makes this a priority in the close season and if he doesn't deliever then manybe time to find a man that can....!

At the moment I am happy that we are still competing for 4th place.

I think Rogerstan has said it all. Defence improved massively lack options in midfield and strikers. ATM I can see us missing out on Europe via the league, but winning the carling cup. As for the fa cup I can see us losing at Reading/west brom hope fully won't . But we will see what happens via soon

Generally happy with the way the team is shaping up, 4th place is gonna be hard with all the points we are dropping at the moment but quite happy with how we are doing.

6th place and a good cup run is what i wanted this year with all the money spent by Spuds and citeh, We now have a Cup Final to look forward too with another quarter final as well if we beat palace at VP along with the fact we are still sitting within 3 points of 4th place with a game in hand on most of our rivals :thumbsup:

Keep the faith boys, were getting there.

“Each smallest act of kindness, reverberates across great distances and spans of time --affecting lives unknown to the one who’s generous spirit, was the source of this good echo. Because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage, years later, and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each expression of hatred, each act of evil.”

I think that most Villans are fairly happy with being able to compete this season and beating some of the bigger clubs has been great. However it doesnt get away from the fact that our tactics are just sooooooooooooooooo obvious, blatant and transparent with any half decent manager able to set a team up to nulify our counter attacks. If you look at the team and give them a mark out of ten there are still players in there that would score average figures and in any other of the top 5 clubs would be warming the bench.

Ashley Young really needs to pull his finger out. His work rate isnt anywhere near that of Petrov or Milner

Heskey.... well I think we all know what he doesnt bring to the party and havent a clue what he does

Carew..... hes a shadow of himself with flashes of brilliance. God knows what he earns but its too much

We definately need to buy a couple of players in the summer and not leave it until the last week of the window.

We looked tired and one dimensional against Palace. If we turn up to London and play like that on the 28th we're going to be travelling home under a cloud. Utd didnt play well last night but they still beat AC Milan away. We need to take the game straight to them on the 28th and every player needs to give their heart and soul. If they cant get themselves up for this kind of game they need to be fired.

I tend to agree with lazybonz74 assessment,

the wins against Chelski,Man Ure & Red Scousers were most pleasing---but against that we have dropped some pretty poor points Hammers,Wigan are prime examples -the Boyz just aint consistant,& we are left guessing at too many games as to which Villa are going to turn up,---too many players just aint delivering regularily enough,

The failure to strengthen the midfield & forward line has disappointed me,coupled with MON,s reluctance to use both subs & squad rotation,leading to the good ol "tiredness" excuse which frankly to me is ruddy pathetic, have The Boyz exceeded expectations?

On the plus side though i am delighted wiith reaching a cup final and hopefully progress will be made in the F.A. Cup, you never know Wembley could be our secong home this season.in addition we are in the top half of the table --but i cant see a finish above 7th, there is also the promise of Marc Albrighton, Fabian Delph The Fonz & also Ciaran Clark -----ffs MON sniff the grass and get these Boyz blooded---they are this great clubs future,
