Ar least on Sunday we played for 90 minutes. Still not to me back to our 'best', but a vast improvement on the 'we can only play for 20 minutes'. Then add back in BAE, Kaboul, Parker and Bale and AVB has a nice selection problem over the Christmas period.
29 points from 17 - very good place to be given the way we've played overall. If AVB can stop us wilting post Christmas and get Ade and Daffy scoring consistently (assuming Ade isn't out too long), then we still may do 70 points.
Another 90 minutes against Stoke - this time with a bit more flair and penetration and it should set it up nicely for Villa - and a positive outlook for me for the 2nd half of the season.
Hmm, people assuming that Parker and BAE will settle back into the squad but I'm concerned about their lack of match fitness. BAE especially who we know can be prone to error/lapse in concentration. Kaboul will be out for a while longer so let's hope Daws gets back soon because we need him in the team ahead of Gallas (I've been a fan of his but think his legs are now gone).
It'd be interesting to see whether Parker does make the first team back, but I'd never play a central midfield partnership of Sandro and Parker - both men effectively doing the same job, never works. Dembele should have nothing to fear because he adds that bit of class we need going forward - everything went through him the first half v Swansea.
