It's four wins on the trot for Aston Villa, as they started the game with purpose, taking a 2-0 lead after just seven minutes with a Scott Hogan brace. After Barnsley pulled a goal back with a free header from a corner, Hourihane restored Villa's lead with just 19 minutes [...]
If I'd had time to do a preview, it was going to be something along the lines of “well, we beat the Tykes 3-0 on their patch, so surely we can expect the same today?”
To then counter that it just doesn't work like that and anything was likely to happen, [...]
Three early goals were enough to seal Aston Villa's fourth straight Championship victory. Barnsley travelled from South Yorkshire to meet Aston Villa in the B6, but they have must have thought they had taken an easyJet to:

Now that Bristol have done their job and held Derby to a scoreless draw, can Villa capitalize with a win against visiting Barnsley? If so, we'll overtake the Robins, move into third with a little luck, and draw within three of the Rams, regardless. I like the sound of that.
Speaking on BBC WM, Aston Villa CEO Keith Wyness mirrored MOMS opinions about the January window, when fielding supporter questions for an hour on Friday evening. In short, there wasn't much work to be done, if any. Incoming? While Villa have been attached to various strikers to cover Jonathan Kodjia's [...]
2018 has been (mostly) good to Bruce and Aston Villa, does that continue today? Win, after win, after win. That's Aston Villa right now. A team to be excited by and feel good about.
Strange feeling, right? Steve Bruce has turned things around, but we've been here before and a damning [...]
Villa have a big chance to impress today At 5pm in the UK, we'll know if Villa can keep the good times rolling. It might go their way, it might not - but seriously - despite the stature of the opposition (and that's absolutely no offense to Barnsley, who are [...]

Villa Park, Birmingham
Aston Villa will today welcome Paul Heckingbottom and his Barnsley team to Villa Park today for today's Championship game.
Steve Bruce will be hoping that his side can build on their recent form having won their last three fixtures [...]
Derby and Bristol drew last night and that means we drop to fifth. But it also means that if we can get three points today, we'll be three points from an automatic promotion place. It's not a bad place to be with so many games to go.
And it's Barnsley [...]
Just under a month ago the positive vibes were all but gone and the world appeared to be in meltdown according to some supporters.
Another season appeared to be dwindling away after a frankly terrible December.
Poor performances and most notably results saw panic sweep the ranks as some called for Bruce [...]
The Villa Appetiser: Aston Villa v Barnsley 2018 The last time we played at Villa Park, a 5-0 win set the standard that we now have to match, but Barnsley will have other ideas. Fresh from holding Wolves to a 0-0 draw, Barnsley need to keep picking up points to [...]
CHELSEA are eyeing a surprise January move for Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor, according to reports. Unlikely Men Chelsea are expected to bring in a striker in January to alleviate the pressure on out-of-form summer signing Alvaro Morata. Antonio Conte has shown he has doubts about Michy Batshuayi, leading to a [...]
Ever since relegation was sealed in the 2015/16 season – officially it was in April, but it was pretty much a stick-on from January onwards – Villa fans have had the prime focus of getting out of the Championship. It's perhaps harder than it's ever been, unless you take the [...]
Since the beginning of the January transfer window reports have emerged that Aston Villa are interested in League 1 midfielder, Nick Powell from Wigan Athletic.

Why am I writing this. Speculation continues to grow about Villa winger Robert Snodgrass and a potential return to his parent club, West Ham United, reported by a number of sources including the ‘always right, not wrong and never liable' Teamtalk (who whipped up the Sam Johnstone rumour out of [...]
Critics of the current regime would point at the style of football or perceived lack thereof. However, Steve Bruce was appointed with the sole purpose of guiding Aston Villa back into the Premier League.
I'm sure Bruce's agenda was to get the best eleven players at his disposal onto the field [...]
We hoped for a Happy New year, and that's what's been delivered – so far at least.
Yes, there's nothing like a defeat or two for the gnashing of teeth to re-commence, but when a win or two materialises either all goes quiet or some other reason for dissatisfaction is often [...]

I spent yesterday looking at one document. It was just under 200 pages and I'm looking to make sure before we send it, nothing is going to trip us up but more importantly that it's easy to follow. The easy to follow part is the part that can also trip [...]
The former Villa boss was hired Monday as the new manager at struggling Stoke City, and most were quick to relegate the Potters. Clues from Lambert's first season at B6, however, suggest he can keep Stoke in the Premier League. Former Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is back in the [...]
