John Carver gave his press conference yesterday and they seem to follow the same pattern for almost every game, with the training having been good the previous week, and the players have been positive and are ready for the next match.
John Carver – there will be a reaction
This time the game is at home to second bottom Aston Villa on Saturday – but John said the much same thing before last week’s 5-0 humiliation at Manchester City. 🙁
This is what John said about the upcoming game yesterday, after last weekend’s horror show:
“The players know that we didn’t give a performance – a performance that was worthy of getting a result.” “I don’t think I will have to say too much to them before the game.”
“I know how they will react.” “I am hoping they will react the way I’m thinking they will.” “They usually do after a defeat like this.”
“I think they have been positive this week so there is no reason why we can’t go into the game with a positive frame of mind.”
We do hope we see a much improved display against Villa tomorrow, because another defeat would not be good, against a side who are second bottom of the league.
Aston Villa are also bottom of the form table, having lost all of their last six league games in a row, including a 2-1 defeat last time out at home to Stoke City.
So a win is what we are looking for, and hopefully the lads can produce the goods, which will make up just a little bit for last week’s humiliation.
This will be new manager Tim Sherwood’s third game in charge of Aston Villa.
Jack Colback is out suspended for two games, but the good news is that Daryl Janmaat is fit.
Fans don’t seem to confident we can win this game.
