17th place. Thats where the Villans ended up last season. After having such a positive beginning the ship surely sunk to the bottom fast. This season could possible be worse. Villa Park will see it’s favourite player leave and join Liverpool. Christian Benteke was a talisman for the club, the only positive of this deal was the amount they received in return 32.5 million, time to see how they spent the money and if it will pay dividends. On a side note the team also lost their best midfielder in Fabian Delph for a fraction of what he should have actually cost. He’ll be missed.
Tim Sherwood has a handful this season, keeping the fans in check and the team in the first division will be difficult, he’ll be counting on a big return from his new arrivals aka Adama Traore a speedy winger from Barcelona, Jordan Ayew & Joleon Lescott who will be filling in for the recently departed Ron Vlaar.
I don’t see things going so well here Villa Park may turn into a war zone by the time this season is done and i can’t quite accurately give you my best prediction on this one, for now it’s safe, we’ll see though.
Prediction : Safe – 16th
