The Ides of March

With only the Newcastle game left in what has been a very poor February, where we have missed the opportunity to be sitting in 10th with 31/34 points and looking up rather than down. What will March bring?

Norwich (H)

Man City (A)

Chelsea (H)

Stoke (H)

Man U (A)

 

Norwich look awfully lost at the moment, but at home we have been horrible. City away who knows, but you'd have to expect a mauling there. Then perhaps low on confidence facing Chelsea at home, maybe after another poor home performance against Norwich and a mauling at City? Doesn't bode well. Then come Hughes' Stoke, a different proposition to the Pulis version and a team who could well be in deep sh*t by the time they arrive at Villa Park.

Then to top it off a trip up to Old Trafford. 

On the other hand, maybe we'll do Norwich at home and finally click? I can see us only getting 4 points, but realistically even on this season's form we could get 6 or 7 from that run. Which put together with a win next time out at Newcastle would see us pretty much safe before April for the first time in a while.

Thoughts?

Looks like a win against Newcastle before starting this run is pretty important, at least a point and not getting beat.

 

A win and only picking up 4 points through March would mean we'd finish the month on 35 points, a draw and 33. An optimist might say we'd average better than a point a game through March, so let's say 6 points. With a win beforehand at Newcastle that would see us on 37 points and pretty much safe before kicking a ball in April for the first time in a few years.

 

Going to be a real make or break month.

The only way to get Paul Lambert out is for Villa to be relegated, but with some irony, we would then have a team and a manager suitable for that league. 
 

But considering that Faulker and Lerner have appointed nothing but dross (Doug brought MON in, don't forget that) - I really don't see the point. Lambert is all there is... Maybe we should just stop caring as much as he does.

Citeh face Barcelona in the second leg 3 days after we play them so hopefully they will rest a couple of players.

6 points would be a reasonable return

Let's face it, they could drop 11 players and probably still muster a team capable of beating us.

 

 

Quite possibly but they may also have an off day.

We don't need to beat or draw with City at their place to get 6 points from the games in March.
