Aston Villa Message Board
It's hard to blame McLeish at Villa Park when we have such a lack of talent in the side. Even a top manager would be hard pushed to get much more out of this squad.
Against Arsenal I think we had the best performance this season and still lost. I can't fault McLeish for his tactics - at least in the second half. It was all Villa for a while - no negative, defensive stuff - but we don't have the class.
Anyway - shame about your European run - you did far better than our lot did with their European chances.

Cheers Grah, the sentiments are appreciated.
I saw two of the games and the lads did themselves proud in the Euro games, still can't believe we went out on 10 points, but shows the quality of the group I suppose.
Don't suppose I will see us in Europe again so... memories etc !
