Aston Villa Review: Episode 167 - Villa win again to move up the table

Sign in to follow this  


Aston Villa haven't taken 11 points from 15 games since long before Aston Villa Review began, but that's exactly what new manager Steve Bruce has achieved since taking over. Okay, so it's in the Championship, but that's no guarantee of anything. Saturday's 2-1 home win over Blackburn Rovers was Villa's third under Bruce, and takes them up to 14th.

In this week's show Chris and Steve talk about Villa's latest win and the current state of play, and discuss their wishes for the Villa Park redevelopment that Tony Xia teased last week. Filled-in corners? Not for us, thanks. And, of course, we talk about the supporters' relationship - such as it is -with midfielder Ashley Westwood.

    • 100% agree. Look at Brentford and they are playing well, just can' hit the back of the net. Look at us, up until Saturday, and we were just really bad. There's a difference.  Smith is a good manager and I would welcome him as a huge upgrade to moaning dinosaur we have now..
    • Sometimes this actually feels like a nightmare. Normal parameters are totally bent out of shape and there's a sort of surreal fog hanging over everything. Anarchists must be cheering this sh*t.
    • so long as draft isn't a Weds / Sat I'd be up for another game
    • Bit harsh, he wasn't front and centre but I thought he played pretty well, that nutmeg and turn in the second half was sublime.   
    • Easy to say after he bangs in a hat trick, a week ago he didn't look like someone capable of that.  Sometimes players come good when they come good, maybe he's just come good 
    • Did he play full 90? Didnt know he on the pitch
    • Played well, before i think he thought he had be creative as well with the ball. Today he did a solid job with couple crunching tackles but gave ball to right players
    • Whilst I kind of agree with what you are saying regarding hogan, McCormack is the most proven goal scorer at this level so would you put him ahead of the rest? For me it is not about being proven with different clubs but what the performance is like on match day in a villa shirt, so for now I would say Davis should be starting the next match up front until there is a reason to drop him whether that be a bad game or him being subbed off and someone coming on and offering more than he did. He suits us at the minute he is good in the air, strong and direct which is what we need plus he holds the ball up well and can bring others into play. Keep up the hard work Davis and long may this form continue. UTV
    • Could be tough this, they've won all 4 games thus far 
    • His goals were great, he could have had another. But i thought he passed the ball well and looked a lot more confident and comfortable on ball with the players in front of him
