Right then chaps. How are we all feeling after the match last night? I'll be honest i'm feeling pretty downhearted right now. I dont like moaning about Villa but at the same time they're not giving me alot to be positive from at the moment. Last nights first half performance was the poorest i've seen for a while. Not one shot on goal in 45mins! This team has certainly got enough talent to finish top 4. But we could of done with a couple more players who have enough experience of being in the top 4 to bring the younger lads through. Villa head off to Dubai for a few days now and if i was O'neill i'd treat this trip just like a pre season. Start a fresh. Wipe the slate clean and start a new 10 game season. My faith is being pushed to its limits at the moment. But part of me still believes we can finish the season on a high. Will it be good enough for the top 4 finish? Who knows!

Most people have probably realised im not the most optimistic Villa fan around, and that basically stems from 20 years of pretty much nothing gained as a supporter. However this season really has opened my eyes to how big and where this once proud football club can go.

Last night was a disapointment, however second half performance wasnt actually that bad, and with a bit of luck we may of even snatched at least a point! There is lots of doom and gloom around at the moment and really there is no need, if we were given this position at the start of the season we would of taken it!!

I for one, am staying positive, if we finish 5th then so be it, yeah it'll be a disapointment but its another step forward from the previous year and we will have shown that with a stronger squad we could of competed with the top 4, but whos to say we wont finish 4th???

One thing that really is annoying me is the talk of 'O'Neils head being on the line', and 'how long will it be til Randy sacks O'Neil' shit that has been posted on other forums!!! I'll stand by my decision now that i wont be re-newing my season ticket if he was given the boot. Martin O'Neil IS (in my opinion Don!) the ONLY man to take this club forward!!!!!

I seen those threads on the other forums aswell. Shocking isn't it. I dont think Randy will ever give Martin the boot. Martin will be the one who decides enough is enough

and if all the shit continues about his head on the line, he will decide sooner rather than later and that is the WORST thing that could happen to our club!!!!!

Will it be the worst thing though. For all his good work this was put into perspective by him being the First and Only Manager in the history of Aston Villa to deliberately field a weakened team. Bridges need to be rebuilt and quickly too.

Mon is a top bloke, good manager, but not great IMO. He's made some good decisions, and some very bad oneís too. However he still has much to learn, or maybe change about his ways (which for an individual who has been in the game so long, I find that hard to believe). He needs to become less stubborn, learn how to react quicker to other teamís tactical changes. A plan B, C would also be nice. Players playing out of position for seasons at a time. And (whilst I agree he isnít the only manager to make this mistake), take all competitions seriously.

I like him, heís one of the few whom when on t.v I actually listen to, not because heís Villa manager, but because he talks sense, and with good humour.

Our home form is appalling no question, and because thatís where most supporters watch their football, thatís the reason heís taking so much stick.

Top bloke, but not above criticism, Iíve seen better come and go, but Iíve also seen far, far worse. The difference is with MONs backing, he could be doing so much better. Hopefully he will learn from his mistakes, and will emerge through this difficult spell, a much improved manager.

I agree aswell. I'd like to think that O'neill can become a top manager at Villa
