Marsh made his prediction following the Villans’ 4-0 defeat to Premier League rivals Arsenal in the final of the FA Cup at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening, while describing them as a “Humpty Dumpty team”.
Unfortunately Aston Villa have become the Humpty Dumpty team.....— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) May 30, 2015
All the Kings horses & all the Kings men won't be able to put Villa back together again...bottom six foreseeable future— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) May 30, 2015
Arsenal over 60% possession. Quality team. Villa poor in possession & did nothing with set plays = getting stuffed— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) May 31, 2015
Tim Sherwood’s side’s performance against the Gunners was hugely disappointing and left much to be desired.
Over the course of the 90 minutes, Arsenal had 58% of the possession, took 16 shots of which nine were on target and earned eight corners.
In contrast, the Villans had 42% of the possession, took just two shots of which neither was on target and did not earn a single corner.
Villa are an also-ran in the Premier League and narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship this season.
The Villans finished 17th in the league table with 38 points from as many matches, just three points above the bottom three.
Last season, Villa finished 15th in the standings, while in the 2012-13 campaign they ended up in the same position and 16th in 2011-12.
