Most of us attacked the Christmas period with one last dose of optimism. Aston Villa were playing struggling teams, so it was one last chance to haul themselves up to create a platform for survival and launch an epic escape to safety in 2016.
Two points out of nine leave little in terms of hope. With the performances on show over Christmas, you’d be hard pressed to pick a team in the Premier League any more that Villa could beat. Lets be honest: WE. ARE. IN. THE. SH**.
Still, here’s five reasons to be kinda cheerful as Aston Villa fans… please sign-up to be an MOMS E-Member at the end of the 5th reason to be kept in the loop for changes for 2016. 😉
FIVE REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL
Now, he plays with his head down and thinks football is a one man game at the moment, but hey who can blame him when you consider the calibre of his team mates, but finally Adama Traore is getting some minutes on the pitch. Rudy Gestede perhaps should have been brought on at the same time against Norwich to give him Adama a target, as there was little hope of Villa profiting from Traore crazy runs with the players on the pitch.
When Adama’s been given a chance he’s tended to make things happen. There’s no Villa player in the current squad i care about seeing in the first XI anymore, but at least this kid presents some entertainment and an unpredictable threat for the opposition to deal with.
Of course, he’s no saviour and you have to question Villa’s recruitment team’s judgement in paying top dollar for such a wild card. Still, playing a wild card is better than playing a hand of jokers at the moment.
