The loss is being Handled Well Despite having ample opportunites to bury Aston Villa in their last outing, Sheffield Wednesday fans are not happy about losing a football match by 4 (four) goals to 2 (two).
In fact, they are really displeased about Aston Villa only committing 1 (one) foul the [...]
At half time yesterday I felt like the majority of Villa fans as the team trudged off. Lucas Joao's header just before the break gave Sheffield Wednesday a 2-1 lead.
All credit to the Owls who had no less than 16 of their first team squad unavailable through injury. Mind you, [...]
Villa's unlikely comeback salvages what started out as a rough afternoon at Hillsborough Aston Villa looked every bit a side playing its third game in seven days. For 60 minutes Sheffield Wednesday dragged Villa around Hillsborough. Even the 4,600 Villa supporters that made the trip to Sheffield couldn't keep the [...]
Despite rough financial picture, Villa fans shouldn't panic Two events put in motion over twelve years ago still impact on Aston Villa to this very day. Randy Lerner's acquisition of Villa from Doug Ellis in September 2006 and UEFA's introduction of Financial Fair Play (FFP) three years later currently loom [...]
Judging from the proceedings of the first-half, if you were told then that Sheffield Wednesday were going to go on and win the game 4-2, you wouldn't be surprised. Instead, it seemed after the hour mark, that the penny finally dropped for the Villa players, that their automatic promotion hopes [...]
I played out the day yesterday for so many Aston Villa fans before kick off and sure enough, it played out pretty much as I thought it would. In fact it was almost perfect, because as we went behind, twice, it was almost like feeding time at the zoo.
So as per, I'm at work.
And find out we're one down after 10 mins or so, Then we pull one back, only for me to find that we've gone 2-1 down just before the break.
And that was the last I heard until I finished work.
In the meantime, I'm listening to [...]
You can't stop this Villa side After a rather sour week, it took just forty-five minutes of action at Hillsborough to place Aston Villa back on the expressway to promotion.
There's no other way to describe last week's loss to Fulham at Craven Cottage than gutting. It was probably as expected [...]

It's match day and I've just woken up. There was only the one post this week as I've been busy in three countries. But it's match day and I know how this is going to play out.
Today will get labeled as must win and I suppose it is. There [...]
Here we are, off to Hillsborough, and I've no idea who's playing. Well, maybe it's not such a big mystery, but the main point of interest will be whether Callum O'Hare starts, or whether we go with Keinan Davis, Assuming Davis is fit.
Obviously, this has a lot to do with [...]
I've been thinking about this one all day and really can't make my mind up as to how I think it's going to go.
On paper, it should be quite straightforward, as after sacking Carlos Carvalhal, their previous manager who I thought was doing a very decent job, Wednesday have been [...]
The Villa Appetiser: Sheffield Wednesday v Aston Villa 2018 After last weekend's disappointing defeat, the mid-week clash with Preston offered a chance to make up for the Fulham game and grab the three points. In the end it wasn't to be, and again we didn't look great without Adomah and [...]

Preston North End came round to pay us as visit and left with a well-earned point, even if the goal itself was another that Sam Johnstone will regret. Lewis Grabban coolly slotted home from the spot to earn Villa's share of the spoils, and the losing streak was stopped at [...]
Yes, I actually got to watch this one and have to say from the off, that in certain areas I don't agree with what seems the consensus amongst Villa fans.
First, I thought we were decent at times.
Are you shocked? Probably, I'd guess.
This doesn't seem to have been accepted at all, [...]

It's Tuesday already, and one hopes we've dusted ourselves off and are ready to go again tonight following Saturday's loss to Fulham. Preston North End come in off a draw with Wolves, are unbeaten in five, will be nipping at our heels just a bit if they win and draw [...]
Defeat wasn't nice at the weekend. What was worse however was how some supporters appeared to like that we didn't win so they could jump in on Steve Bruce. I gotta tell you, even I was surprised.
We're having the best season we've had in a generation, we've come off [...]
