Back to the football and everyone was disappointed to lose against Ipswich and Southampton. I thought we played okay in both games but we knew it was a chance for us to improve in the table.
We now go to Aston Villa. It is always a tough place to go and it is important for us to bring something back from Villa Park.
We are close in the league table and if we manage to win, we can move away from them a little. It in an important game in that respect. It would also keep us in touch with the top five or six.
We all know we had a chance to go up to the top five. Now we are seventh, we lost two games in a row but I would say don't forget our good performances from before.
If we had four points from those games, it was a chance for us. But we are seventh and still have a good chance to go up to sixth.
I am still a little disappointed with the two defeats. If we won those games we would have been in a position perhaps you couldn't have believed before the start of the season. We are down now and we have to start again.
We have showed that we can come back after defeats this season and we have to do it again. We are still in a good position and we can still improve.
To be in the top 10 is good because in the last few seasons we have been 10th, 11th, lower than that and that's why is good to be where we are.
One thing is for sure - we still have the dream to go into a European place.
First of all I hope everyone had a good Christmas and I wish everyone a happy New Year.
