Aston Villa hero Ian Taylor can't see his old club qualifying for Europe anytime soon.
Indeed, Taylor reckons it will take a MIRACLE for the Midlanders to break into the Premier League top six in the next FIVE years.
He explained to the Daily Star Sunday: "When you are a club with Villa's spending power, then unless you can have a one-off season like Southampton were having up until last month, you won't get into the top six.
"In general, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea will form the top six for the foreseeable future because they are the only clubs who can afford to buy the top players. And quality brings success."
