I'm still in the belief that Aston Villa are beginning to hit a rough patch but it doesn't mean a thing unless Arsenal take advantage of the situation.
In my opinion Aston Villa are feeling the pressure of being in fourth place. Its a situation they are not used to being in. Arsenal, on the other hand, have experience of competing for the Champions League places.
You could argue that Arsenal are cracking up too. Whilst we have been on a long unbeaten run recent draws with Sunderland and Fulham have not been good enough.
We were handed a reprieve today. Aston Villa dropping points means that we are very lucky indeed. I'd say that now we are in last chance saloon.
We are running out of games and desperately need to start turning these draws into wins. If we don't then it could be Europa Cup football for us next season.
In the past I've suggested that Aston Villa have been very lucky this season. I still believe that is the case but maybe I haven't given them the credit they deserve.
Their position in the league table doesn't lie and it can't all be down to just luck. They deserve their lofty place in the league.
Its going to be a very tight race for the Champions League place and it will go the wire. I still believe we will pip Aston villa to fourth spot. Just.
Keep it Goonerish...........
