In a week that has bared witness to football to forget we bring you the highs and lows of the boys in claret and blue. 

Villa's Europe hopes took a huge blow this weekend after a poor result against Pompey on Saturday.  

Villa lost 2- 0 to the team that have been chasing them all season, which now leaves them in 7th place in the league behind Portsmouth and 7 points from securing that crucial 5th spot for Europe.  

In a game that saw both teams reduced to ten men in the closing stages, this is certainly a trip to Fratton Park Villa will want to forget.

Defoe opened the scoring after just 12 minutes, taking advantage of a wandering Carson.  Things didn’t get much better for the Villa as Reo – Coker was subject to an unfortunate rebound, leading to a second goal for Pompey. 

Things seemed to improve for Villa in the second half, with plenty of possession, but it just wasn’t their day as they failed to convert any of the 10 chances they created.

Pompey saw Muntari dismissed on 80 and Mellberg followed 9 minutes later, after a silly pull on Diarra’s shirt. 

The team was disappointed with the result and performance, and with now only gaining 2 points from their last 8 matches, they are looking a head to Saturdays game against Sunderland at Villa Park, with the hope of taking away a win and a vital 3 points.  

Last night saw more bad news for Villa... 

The Villa youths saw themselves knocked out of the FA Cup to an on form Chelsea side at Villa Park.

After their first leg 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, the boys were hopeful to take the win and secure themselves a place in what would have been their third cup final in seven years.  Agbonlahor, Gardner and Cahill helped Villa youths to the Cup Final in 2004, in which they were runners up.  

There were high hopes for the likes of Ciaran Clark, Nathan Delfouneso, Barry Bannan and Harry Forrester, who scored an amazing double, to bring it home for Villa but Chelsea proved to strong.  There are still high hopes for the youngsters as Villa Manager Martin O’Neill witnessed a pretty good all round performance from the up and coming young stars in front of a crowd of nearly 11,000 at Villa Park. 

There were some smiles at Villa Park at least this week… 

When Radio 1 presenters Chappers and Dave stopped off at Villa Park on their quest to raise money for Sport Relief. 

Running a mile at every Premier and Scottish Premier League club in order to raise money for Charity, the comedy duo ran four laps of the pitch to complete the challenge.

As punishment for a poor performance at Derby, Dave had to complete his four laps dressed in the Villas very own Hercules outfit.  

And finally… 

The front man of football, Gary Lineker stepped outside of the studio and onto a big red bus, complete with 1960s style quiff and Sir Cliff’s tan, to re-create the classic Summer Holiday scene from the famous 1963 film. 

On his way to Thorpe Park he was joined by a Shadows tribute band and a bus full of crisps, all in the aid of Walkers. 

Until next time,
