Eric Black feels the Aston Villa supporters have every right to voice their frustration after their tumultuous season.
So much for the relief of relegation enabling Aston Villa to play without fear. Saturday's 4-2 home defeat to Southampton was another repeat, straight off the season's performance template: a poor start, [...]
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes the Premier League is still Leicester's to lose.
Leicester's lead at the top has been cut to five points, and they'll have to beat Swansea without Jamie Vardy if they want to keep Tottenham at arm's length.
Spurs, meanwhile, play West Brom on Monday, and in the [...]
A humbling step for the Villa player who now steps down as club captain. Gabby Agbonlahor has stepped down as Villa's Club Captain with immediate effect following his 2nd suspension of the year.
Agbonlahor has also taken steps to repair his fractured relationship with Villa fans by apologising through his Instagram [...]

Addressing the Crisis In recent years you'd be more likely to enjoy going to a funeral than taking a trip to Villa Park. In the past five seasons, Villa supporters have experienced an ever-growing club record number of home defeats in a season, under both Alex McLeish (8) and Paul [...]
Before the Saints game MOMS was involved in the first proper Fan Consultation Group meeting at Villa Park, that was also attended by Villa chairman Steve Hollis and Brian Little. After what was essentially a development meeting a couple of weeks ago before the Bournemouth game (attended by Tommy Jordan [...]
A round-up of the latest news from in and around Villa Park;As the close season approaches and with our need to re-build for The Championship pretty obvious, transfer targets are starting to emerge.
The latest link is to 25 year old striker Kane Hemmings. The Dundee striker has scored 25 [...]
I seem to always be busy these days and it means I don't get to follow as much as I'd like. It's gotten to the place where I actually add 'Damian time' to my calendar so nobody can get access. I'm using one of those right now to write this. [...]
MattVillan looks at the idea of Damien Comolli coming to AVFC by considering his player recruitment history On Tuesday, The Telegraph reported that should the Chinese consortium be chosen as the preferred bidder for AVFC then they have lined up former Spurs, Saint Etienne and Liverpool footballing director Damien Comolli [...]
While we aren't close to the fixture reveal for next season, we now have a better idea of when Aston Villa will first take the pitch next season. Aston Villa's first ever Championship campaign won't get underway for a few months still, but if you're a nerd like me, you're [...]
Another eye watering performance on Saturday meant the Villa faithful's anger grew louder and louder with anger. There were some awful performances on the pitch and there is no excuse fot them from either the players or the caretaker manager. It was good to see Toner making his debut and [...]
Defensive lapses a-go-go, boos from the get-go and protests go bananas. What did Villa fans learned from the latest defeat at home? SAINTS ROMP When Guzan, Bacuna, Richards, Lescott and… well, pretty much everyone except Alan Hutton was booed… when being announced BEFORE kick off, the tone was set for [...]
The fans' consultation group met at Villa Park before the Southampton game on Saturday 23rd April.
Fans' representatives in attendance were:
Joe Costello – Heroes and Villans

Former Liverpool & Tottenham director of football Damien Comolli has been linked to an unspecified role at Villa Park. [as reported in The Telegraph.] Whilst there has been little or no concrete news on any proposed takeover at Villa, this is the strongest evidence yet that a Chinese consortium [...]
Did you see what I did there, given that it's currently Shakespeare season?
Hmm, moving quickly on;
Aston Villa seem to be flavour of the month when it comes to news and it's no wonder after the comedy of errors we've seen lately.
Anything is seemingly possible at the club, as we're in [...]
Villa's penultimate home game of the season saw the visit of Southampton, who standing at eighth in the league, were in a position Villa fans can only nostalgically look back at when the likes of Ashley Young romantically nourished Randy Lerner. A second ‘Bannersouton74' protest was to be held inside [...]
Let's be very blunt: there is nothing much that is positive coming out of Villa Park right now. Despite vague rumours of an impending takeover, everything is being overshadowed by the continuing despondency caused by poor results, poor team selections and poor application on the pitch. However, there is a [...]
Embed from Getty ImagesIt has been revealed today that Petrov has overcome Leukemia which forced his retirement from football 4 years ago. This news about his health alone is fantastic news.Our former Captain has recently been training with the Under-21 squad and has announced that he would like to [...]
Stan Petrov wants to play for the Villa. Stan Petrov didn't have an easy path to the hearts of Villa fans.
He was pretty below-par when he joined the club and only really kicked on towards the end of his time in B6. That time would be tragically cut short by [...]
First off I'd like to say “well done” to the young guns after they won their U-21 Premier league division 2 playoff against Swansea, by 2 goals to 1.
The official site report suggests the lads played well, with Hepburn-Murphy looking sharp after his lengthy lay-off.
The team now go on to [...]
It's getting increasingly difficult to write about our football club. Sadly, it's almost the same thing week in and week out. It's no longer about if we lose but rather how we will lose. Ten losses in our last ten, and probably three more to come, leaves fans trying to [...]
25 defeats this season (to date).10 successive defeats in our current run of atrocious form.6 straight home defeats at Villa Park. This one is a new club record. A shameful statistic of our lifeless squad of care-free, over-rewarded players. In an almost 6 year period of failure, [...]
The Villans were not involved in any dragon slaying to honour Saint George, although there were plenty of tragic elements to their latest loss to mark the four hundredth anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
The relegated hosts were jeered from the off and the atmosphere did not improve when Long hit the [...]
Many of us have been trying to convince ourselves that Aston Villa being relegated is not the end of the world, but surely two goals in one game from Ashley Westwood must be an omen of the apocalypse? Out of The Ashes… In all seriousness Westwood deserves credit for his [...]
Is it just me or does it feel like the season is over and we've entered a sort of summer break? Sure, I'm sort of looking forward to the match, in the same way that you look forward to cramp, but it feels very different. I know it's not over [...]
It has been another ridiculous week. In fact, football is now so far off the agenda at Villa Park that those who are still following our games this term, could be forgiven for forgetting.It has been a week where Gabby Agbonlahor is suspended for the second time this season, [...]
Well, this one is going to be brief, as the truth is that now we're relegated, it doesn't really matter does it?
I can't see beyond yet another loss, given that Southampton are playing for the Europa league and our bunch of mugs generally couldn't care less.
I suppose that's a bit [...]
I got to this a few minutes ago and I got to it from the NewsNow page so all I've seen is headlines. But the impression seems to be that it's a bizarre statement. For me, it reads pretty much like a statement from a man that is trying to [...]
It hasn't been an easy week to be an Aston Villa supporter. Since last we spoke, Villa have had their relegation from the Premier League mathematically confirmed, lost two matches and put supporters through one of the worst weeks of recent decades. From Randy Lerner's latest bout of nonsense to [...]
Since we last spoke, we've had a lot happen at our beloved Aston Villa. The club lost. The club were relegated. Joleon Lescott said stupid things. Board members resigned. Stan Collymore threw fits. Fans threw fits. Takeover talk re-emerged. And everything looks to be suitably insane.
So why is it [...]
