Football

Ok, now I'm gonna sound like a crazy football chick but I don't care.
My team lost today against Tottenham 2-0. The result isn't the worst part, or maybe it is. We played really well, had some wonderful combinations and wasted a few chances. The trouble is our defense: anyone that comes running a bit faster can get past our players. It's really easy...That's why we lost against Arsenal last week, too. On the other hand, we might create chances but there's no-one there in the front that's guaranteed to score.
It seems to me like we're gonna lose a lot of games this season, albeit playing really great football. I'm not sure the coach is aware of that.
:/ It can't go on like this, Co!

tottenham will be a good team and arsenal always have been. I wouldn't worry if you are competing against them well, the goals will come.
Then again im a villa fan what do i know!!!

I think we have a very good bunch of players and the team work is starting to show. It's just the defense, it's really fragile, wich is odd because we've always had such great central defenders: ricardo carvalho, jorge andrade, jorge costa...The tradition is being lost.
At what place did Villa stay in the Premiership last year? Is it really that worrying this year? That's what's so great about the premiership: nothing's guaranteed for anybody and every year there's excitement about who's gonna get the uefa places and get relegated. You have to focus on the positive side of it! Well, I guess I've said too much already :P

last year we finished tenth but had a strong start, and even put up a bit of a fight but trailed off really badly at the end and I think that worrying trend is gonna continue, don't get me wrong i'll cheer em on when im there, if we win a match i'll probably start dreaming of a rosy future but til then.....

Also isnt that the way with football, you guys had a lot to cheer, back to back titles, uefa cup followed by champions league. I know last year was a dissapointment considering the high standards but you can take comfort in that you have the core of a good squad

I guess being a football fan has a lot to do with worrying. You can't really appreciate a win if you never lose. And, yeah, after those two years with Mourinho, not winning was a strange thing! I think we got back from cloud 9 now; let's be realistic, we're a good team but we're not Ac Milan and all that.
I'm sure you'll have a victory to celebrate soon. And winning in the premiership is quite different from winning elsewhere, that's a really tough championship. I'll be watching out for Villa's results :)
