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, [...]

Aston Villa's Jekyll and Hyde performances continued with underwhelming displays against Fulham and Preston in the last few days. Whilst there was a strange calm and almost acceptance after the tough trip to Craven Cottage on Saturday, the panic has set in much more quickly after the draw with Preston [...]
Aston Villa made it no win in two games after failing to beat Preston at Villa Park last night in another uninspiring, disjointed performance.
Villa did have a few injury problems with Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah missing out completely, while Ahmed Elmohammady was only fit enough to make the bench. [...]

It wasn't pretty — but it was a point. Coming off the first loss of 2018 (in the League) Aston Villa hosted Preston North End at Villa park. Neither of the injured duo of Grealish or Adomah was deemed fit enough for the starting lineup or the bench. Only change [...]
Villa can keep a little bit of momentum with a victory today. Fingers crossed. Hi! We've had a bit of spring cleaning over at 7500 To Holte. With a focus on the community, we've implemented this match thread to discuss the game. So, if you've got something to say about [...]
Villa could do with a win here. Tune in. After a bit of a crushing loss to the expansive, attacking side Fulham away from home, Aston Villa need to bounce back with a decent win over Preston North End at Villa Park. A loss won't be the end of the [...]
Jack Grealish has been around for a long time – having played under five managers in five years – but he is now growing upBy Martin Laurence for WhoScored, part of the Sport NetworkAston Villa's season has been shaped by injuries, for better and for worse. So, with Jack Grealish [...]
After several years of Premier League struggle, the disaster of relegation to the Championship, and a long, hard, disappointing 2016-17 season, it seems that things are finally picking up at Villa Park.

Sky Bet Championship
19:45 – Tuesday 20th February 2018
Villa Park, Birmingham
Aston Villa will be hoping to return to winning ways against Preston North End following their first defeat in eight against Fulham over the weekend.
Steve Bruce's men have been in good form recently and will be [...]
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 [...]
Villa's winning streak is zero — time to try to make it one. The Fulham match was a disappointing result. We've covered it plenty and Tuesday is a day to move on to another tough match up. Preston currently sit 7th in the table — on 50 points and [...]
The Villa Appetiser: Aston Villa v Preston North End 2018 Well.. we were always going to lose at some point. Given our terrible record at Craven Cottage, it wasn't a huge surprise, but it showed how we miss Adomah and Grealish. There's no time to dwell on it, though, with [...]
There was a dampening of expectation when the teamsheets were announced before the Fulham game; confirming that both Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah were missing. The duo had very much been Villa's cutting edge in recent weeks and were the players that Villa needed to have a good chance of [...]
As we approach the end of the Championship season, we find ourselves sat in 3rd position with 14 games remaining, meaning that we need to treat each and every game like a cup final.
After a difficult weekend at Craven Cottage which saw us lose 2-0 to a good Fulham side, [...]
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 [...]
Truth time it is then and the reality is that I didn't really expect to win this one.
Yes, I said I was confident on here, but I was telling the lads at work that I'd be very happy with the draw.
I think it stems from the criticism a while back, [...]
All good things must come to an end, and Villa's grand run of seven and counting was no different today. Fulham were full value for their 2-0 win, pulled within four of Villa, and dropped us to third.
Not much beyond Tuanzebe. Looks a very good young player. Shame we [...]
Ryan Sessegnon does not turn 18 until May, by which point it is becoming increasingly feasible that Fulham, on this evidence at least, have every chance of celebrating a Premier League return.The winger's seventh goal in eight matches kickstarted an impressive victory over Aston Villa before Floyd Ayité's effort from [...]
Look, I might be wrong, but aren't Fulham and Aston Villa the two form sides in this League? I'm fairly sure we are and Fulham are looking good and I write I might be wrong because if I am, I'm sure it will get pointed out and I'll be ridiculed [...]
As luck would have it, Villa's aim for eight straight features us away to the Cottagers and potentially missing two of our brightest lights. I don't know why, but when things are going well, it sort of always seems that someone important gets injured.
Which isn't to say that Villa can't [...]
Business End In terms of the Championship, no game so far this season, perhaps offers up the possibility to shape the promotion picture for the end of the season, than the clash between Fulham and Aston Villa. It's the first sign, we're getting to the business end of the season [...]
The Villa Appetiser: Fulham v Aston Villa 2018 After a great performance in the derby, it's a different kind of fixture for Villa to contend with – at a ground we never really do well at. Still, the positive momentum is with Villa at the moment, and while Fulham are [...]
So with me worrying somewhat that we might not be able to sustain our run against the Blues, it would seem we actually performed really well, with us dominating the game and grabbing a well-deserved 3 points that kept the momentum going.
The good news for me was the continuing fact [...]
Ah. That'll happen to you.
After winning seven games in a row, Villa finally gave up the ghost in a loss to Fulham away at Craven Cottage. Still, losing to one of the best-attacking sides away from home isn't a BAD way to lose your first game in seven. Is it?
