    good article wellwritten and terrifyingly accurate what can happen to a club that finished last season chasing champions league.
    next up a wounded chelsea …any one got a prediction how this one will finish?

    Just throw away that used toilet tissue in the bowl and flush twice. Apply a good measure of the air freshner. Shut the door and call the mason to makeover the rest room.
    That is how to treat the Houllier problem.

  3. Villa’s predicament does have silver linings. The young players, Albrighton in particular, are doing very well – but it’s doubtful that it’s wise to blood so many of them in one go.

    O’Neill had taken the club as far as it could go and wisely jumped ship. That the decline has been so precipitous is a surprise but only a mild one.

    Villa fans need to get real. Randy Lerner wants a return on his investment. Gerrard Houllier (the caditate with the best cv) took the villa job knowing there was no budget and he would have to sell to buy new players. Gerrard going nowhere !

  5. Villa have sold their best players, mainly from their midfield so it is no suprise they are struggling. Houllier can spot a player so he has to be backed in the market
