Smith tells us his teams always finish strongly.
Trouble is, we are starting all over again.

Got to be honest as well that prior to everything that has happened we didnít exactly look like we were building up to a strong finish.

One thing is for certain, there are going to be some freak results under these new conditions. Letís hope that we take full advantage of any such opportunities.

You can be sure of one thing. If there's any opportunity or advantage to be had then Villa will be nowhere near it.

Just had the email for refunds

Season Ticket Reimbursement Statement

Aston Villa can confirm supporters will be reimbursed for our six remaining home matches in anticipation of the current Covid-19 pandemic forcing the 2019/20 season to finish behind closed doors.

Supporters who have been impacted will either be provided with a refund, an e-voucher which can be used against future purchases or make a donation to the Aston Villa Foundation.

Season Ticket holders will receive a refund or an e-voucher for the six matches while supporters who purchased individual match tickets will also receive a refund.

Email communications will be sent out to supporters, including Claret and Club members, detailing further information and a set of accompanying FAQs. Supporters are kindly asked to ensure that the email address on their account is up-to-date and accessible. This can be checked by logging in to the online account.

Hospitality guests who are members or have purchased individual match packages will also be refunded or provided with an e-voucher. Hospitality staff will be contacting the latter with further details while communications will also be sent out to members.

Please be aware that there are very limited staff available to answer calls to the ticket office so supporters are advised to wait for the email communications and FAQs before contacting the club with any queries.

Thank you for your support.

Why would anybody want an e-voucher instead of the cash?  OK you can then put it against next year's season ticket, but I think I'd want to see what was likely to happen in respect of the new season first.

There would have been a time when I'd have accepted a voucher for some e's, but those days are gone.

There are supporters at every level, even the Premier League, who think their club is doing them a favour by taking their money.

I guess some people may have just accounted for the money having left their account and be happy for it to be credited to the next season ticket, rather than having it refunded and spending it on beer?

Also, I wonder if the credit may be for a higher value than the cash sum?

Iíve never been that good with money,  if itís there Iíll just spend it
if we stay up I will renew so I guess the e voucher would work for people like me have little self control

The signs aren't good coming out of the Bundesliga.

The absence of home fans has led to only 3 home wins out of 22 matches.  Our extra home game doesn't really sound like much of an advantage given those stats.

That may be so Ad@m but we need to make sure we are ready for a fight. Players have let the club and fans down  especially over the last few games now they need to get us out of this mess.

On balance you would expect a trend of anomalous results to favour us. It should by definition close the gap, at least in the short-term, between the good and the poor sides.
