Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see their side go for promotion next season as they are certainly confident that is what is going to happen.
The Villans may have not had the season they would have liked this time out but the second half of it at least suggested that there is potential for a promotion challenge in 2017/18.
Indeed, the men from Villa Park have been going well in recent weeks and if they can sign some good players over the summer then there can be no doubt that the club is going to challenge next year.
Time, then, to take stock of this season and look back at where the club could improve with Dr. Tony Xia rating the club’s season out of 100 on Twitter.
Fans, then, reacted to this and so, with that in mind, here is the best of what was said:
59 of . That’s I rated our season. Only results matters. We need RESULT next season. #UTV

In rating system, 60 is the grade for ‘pass’. We are still at the crossroads point. https://t.co/fwlCbwGKVq

@Dr_TonyXia If “pass” is promotion, we’re a lot more than one mark away

@Dr_TonyXia Not reaching the playoffs is a massive fail…anything other than automatic next season is also a fail

@Dr_TonyXia Give a manager who wants to attack that kind of money and we finish in the play-offs.

@Dr_TonyXia With the money the club has spent, Tony, Bruce and his team have failed, in almost every aspect
