Welcome to a new feature. Sporadically, we’ll be getting the opinions of the fans and bloggers of each Premier League side in the run up to the new season. Of course, these opinions will be biased and far from fair, but that’s part of the joy of football eh? Today, let’s have a look at the views of a Villa fan who is hoping that Reo-Coker will shine next season… and of course, some gentle slagging of Birmingham City.
Eyup, welcome to Pies. Why don’t you introduce yourself?
Damian is the name, Aston Villa is the team and the site is the AVFC Blog at www.avfcblog.com
How do you think you’ll do next season?
If you had asked me this question at the end of the season I’d have confidently said top six but today, with the season starting next week, I’m going to say top half. It’s disappointing admitting that but we’ve only brought in two players and let quite a few go.

What do you think of your transfer activity this summer?
As Aston Villa fans we expected more. We were told of world class signings and significant funds by the club; it hasn’t happened. Sure we’ve spent Â£20 odd million since the new owner has come in but when you look at what the new owners at other clubs have spent it’s
disappointing; especially when you revert back to what the club have told you; significant funds and world class signings. Still, it can all change between now and August 31st you’d just think anyone not starting the season with you or not with you already wasn’t part of the plan
