Aston Villa Review: Episode 166 - Villa take a point from derby

Sign in to follow this  


This week's Aston Villa Review focuses squarely on Sunday's Second City Derby, in which Aston Villa battled manfully but had to overcome a sub-par performance to hold on to a draw against Birmingham City. Our misfit hosts came on strong in the second half to level a game that Villa led at the break thanks to Gary Gardner's header.

Chris and Steve pick apart the whys and wherefores of the match, talk a lot about shape and systems, and ask which Villa players came out of the fray with the most credit. We also briefly look ahead to the next game in the Football League Championship, which brings Blackburn Rovers to Villa Park next Saturday afternoon.

    • Respecting common decency and not screwing somebody out of a pension after 21 years of service at the highest level is ridiculous worship?
    • There's a G20 meeting tomorrow about crypto, might be worth waiting to see the outcome of that.
    • Agree with this. Nothing to do with bottling it. We’ve just been fairly beaten by 2 teams we expected to beat so it’s hard to stomach. There will be a lot of shock results from now until the end of the season for a number of reasons.  Fulham were lucky to hold on against QPR.  Cardiff have been grinding out results and surprising everyone.  There’s always one team that manages this.  Wolves are just head and shoulders above anyone in the league and the way they bounced back after losing to us shows this.   It’s unfortunate that we’ve had a team so much better than everyone else as there’s only really been one automatic spot to play for all season. 
    • Due to goal difference they need 4 more points than Barnsley
    • UEFA's FFP rules are for European competition. We have to worry about the PL's and the Football League's equivalents.
    • Yeah i dont see us goibg like that way. What I meant by like Leeds is a big club stuck here for years like forest and Wednesday. If we have to sell grealish, kodjia or chester for example what chance do we have of going up? Snodgrass wont be here next season if we don't go up so all them assists gone. Jesus its scary thinking about. Got to hope bruce can get us there via play offs.  
    • I dont think many of us saw it. If i knew this were to happen I would have preferred a draw against wolves if it meant we didn't take our foot off vs QPR and Bolton. It's been dreadful these last two. I think its been a bottle job. If it was just QPRyou could say ok maybe a one kff. But we were not much better against Bolton. It seems we are trying to do a impersonation of derby !
    • Yep a big time bottle job. I thought the 0-0 against Brentford and boro at home were bad. But these last two games have been poor. Very poor and has just waved the white flag for automatic
    • Guiness is nice. Not as nice as Murphy's, but still nice.
