Based on the last 2 results plus some of the Chelsea league game Iím satisfied we could easily break the top 8, and Iíll even stick my head on the line and say weíll finish 5th this year.

Top six is realistic.

I certainly expect Villa to finish in the top eight now we have such a strong squad, and provided we aren't particularly unlucky with long term injuries I wouldn't be at all surprised if we finished in the top six.

Phil McNulty on the beeb has us down for 8th. I think I'd take it now.

Bloody hell mate, you'll be advocating 3-5-2 next.

Haha! These are ageing well.

Well before the game yesterday there was expectation to finish top half and higher than 11th
That can still be achieved

Realistically I don't see higher than 7th- 8th now which is progress but perhaps not what was the plan. And that top 6 won't be achieved. An aim for top half is what's needed. That will cause some frustration but let it be a season for transition and implementation and improve as we go on
However those accountable SD lange and Purslow as well as the new coaches are all involved in to where villa are currently in the league and where we might finish.

I'm sure all of them like Deano have expectations still for a top half finish but have they given enough of steady platform for Dean to progress from 11th last season?
