Here are stats on defence/attack/ set pieces/ discpline since restart.

Our main issue since restart has been scoring enough goals to win matches . Comparatively in defence we have done better than any of our rivals.
A few more goals would have seen a few more wins
Villa have only scored from set plays .
Though we have had more shots , more attempts at goal and more chances than any of the other rivals.
The expected goals is zero as our main chances are not comimg from open play

It's not all doom and gloom if we can get creating and scoring goals

Attack
Goals
West Ham 3
Villa 2
Watford 2
Bournemouth 1
Norwich 0

Remember Villa have played 4 . The rest 3. West Ham ,Watford, B'mouth, Norwich.

But in defence in comparison has been realitively good.

IF=Most important word in your post Vill I An.  If Smith can get a tune out of them, If the players don't make any stupid mistakes, If they take their chances.

Praying for Bournemouth and Watford to get smashed. Personally I think Bournemouth look finished. Their last display was so inept vs Newcastle. My fear is Watford, who haven’t looked great but they have the edge in my opinion over us in experience, overall talent and a manager who may be able to get more out of what he has in the last few games. West Ham certainly are not out of it but they have the best talent of the three clubs.

I agree TV … The West Ham win over Chelsea was a crucial one …. we have not looked as if we mean business whatsoever and look resigned to the drop ...

Damn. I wish we took 7 points from 12 like Brighton have just done.

Before restart:


During restart:


Not much has changed position wise. Our plight is inevitable.

Smith needs to grow a pair and decides his best team. None of this 10 subs in 2 games lark. If you can't cope with the schedule after 4 games back then you've no business being a footballer. Give them liverpool and Man U to stake their claim as no-one gives us a scooby's chance of getting anything from them anyway. After that, stick with the best performers for the last 4 games to try and get some cohesion and understanding. Those that don't make the cut will either have a chance in the championship when Smith is sacked or will be binned if we survive.

We need Chelsea to win tonight and Newcastle to win tomorrow. But most importantly we need to win some fucking games.

As defeatist as it is, I'd sign up for two 1 goal defeats (think Man. United will beat us by bigger margin than Livepool).

Have to look at every single stat and GD is very important now. Watford are -23 compared to our -24. Watford still got to play Man. City so prospect of another heavy defeat.

We will then have to win 1 of the last 4 and scramble two draws and cross our fingers.
