Double Blow For Villa

Villa dominated for large spells after Senderos's own goal, but were pegged back by a combination of Adebayor's class, Birmingham reject Bendtner's luck and some absurd officiating that somehow allowed the game to continue for a further 4 minutes after the 90th minute.   An even bigger blow for Villa was the horrific injury suffered by In form England defender Curtis Davies. A ruptured achillies ....

Reading 1 - 2 Villa

Aston Villa's Champions League aspirations received a big boost over the weekend after they beat a rather sorry looking Reading team. The win at Berkshire takes Martin O'Neill's team up to sixth place in the table with 47 points, which is level with Liverpool who currently occupy the Champions League spot in fourth place. The day did not get off to the best of starts as the usually cool and composed Gareth Barry missed a first half penalty slicing it wide of the upright. Some members of ....

Villa Vs The Cartoon Army Preview

There is good and bad news from Aston Villa’s point of view regarding injuries.   Gabriel Agbonlahor, who has thus far started in all 70 of the games in which Martin O’Neill has been in charge at Villa, has been ruled out of the clash against Newcastle.   Agbonlahor suffered his injury in the 2-1 defeat to Fulham last week, which may give Marlon Harewood the chance to start his first game since joining from West Ham.   Good news comes in the shape of Ashley ....

England Squad Named

It was a proud day for Aston Villa as 5 players were called up to Fabio Capello’s first England squad.   Gareth Barry has become somewhat of a regular in England squads of late, as have Ashley Young and Scott Carson.   There was perhaps shock outside of Birmingham however when the names of Gabby Agbonlahor and Curtis Davies were included.   So much so that the latter himself said that he was “completely shocked but absolutely delighted” and that he thought ....
