Saying that the Championship is a very easy league, isn’t an honest statement to declare when we’re talking about Aston Villa in its current form. It’s all well and good to be talking about having a positive outlook, but not if our reality can’t live up to that statement.
Villa has spent a lot of money recently, but that doesn’t always give you success, unless the players that you are buying are top class and more importantly, they want to come to your club. Can we say in all honesty, that most of our squad is of a Premier League quality?
With all the big changes Aston Villa has gone through recently, I think to give the Villa fans an unrealistic view of the Championship could end in a negative outcry, if it looks like we’re not going to gain automatic promotion or get into the playoffs.
It’s easy for a player like Dwight Yorke to say the Championship is “very easy,” of course it’s easy when you’re as wonderfully gifted as what he was! Villa would love to sign players with quality of a Dwight Yorke, which is why it’s important that we sign John Terry, it will make our promotion charge a little easier.
I don’t agree with our owner Dr Tony backing up Dwight’s statement. Unless the Tony is willing to really put his hand in his pocket and buy our way out of this league, with, the kind of money that many top footballers would find it hard to turn down, I really don’t know why he would agree with him. Getting out of the Championship really won’t be easy and I don’t think that’s a negative thing to say, it’s an honest and realistic thing to say. UTV
