Congratulations Villa!

Stuart Downing scored and goal in the 33' and that was enough for Villa to capture the win over Liverpool 1-nil.  Villa finishes 9th in the table - a fantastic finish considering we were close to the relegation zone more than once this season.

Man Utd claims another Premiership crown (19th).  West Ham, Birmingham, and Blackpool are relegated to the Championship and coming up to the Premiership next season are Queens Park Rangers (QPR) and Norwich City (former team of Darren Huckerby, who played very briefly for MLS San Jose Earthquakes here in the SF bay Area.  The final team to be promoted will be determined in a playoff between Swansea City and Cardiff City (at Wembley).

Villa Hangs on for Victory!

Darren Bent scores 2 goals and Villa barely hangs on to get the 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates today.  Bent's first goal was quite a show...chesting down a pass on the run and then directing it in the net without the ball hitting the ground.

Prince William

Prince William (in this 2009 photo with Ashley Young) is an avid Aston Villa supporter.  Maybe he would be willing to be a guest at our next AVFC California match viewing?

With his height, maybe Prince William could fill a striker postion for Villa?  There definitely would be more hesitation to foul him in the penalty area and floppy in front of the future king would be shameful!
