Implosion vs. Southampton?

The first half of the match was great.  Villa looked much like where they left off last week with Swansea.  Bent scored and we enjoyed a nil-1 lead.  But something "cracked" at halftime and a different Villa team took the pitch.  The defense slipped back into their "let's try not to lose" form and Southampton took complete advantage of it.

It's still early.   Let's bring things back together again vs. West Brom.

Villa 2-nil over Swansea

What a game!  Holman continues to be a workhorse that never stops running.  Lowton's goal was amazing!  Big Brad was again brilliant in net. And what about Benteke??   He looked unstoppable and he definitely will help open up some things for Benty.  Things are really looking up!  UTV!

The First Point of the Season!

Villa played a much better game yesterday to draw with Newcastle 1-1.  Overall - the passing game, possession, defensive aggressiveness, and attack is night an day compared to last year (and the last 2 weeks).  Hoping for much more of this in the coming weeks.  Guzan looked good in goal and nice connection between Bannan and Clark for the lone Villa goal.  Stephen Ireland is playing well as the central playmaker.
