Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest| 2 points behind the play-offs!!

Conor Hourihane

We’ve only gone and done it, Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest. Get in there!!!

After the 3-0 win at Barnsley and getting knocked out on the EFL cup, we can now focus on the league until January when the FA cup kicks off for us and also the transfer window will be open.

Now onto the game, we kept the same team we used against Barnsley so I was confident that we can perform well against Forest. We started well in the first half with Kodija who did well to get past his marker, then played a beautiful pass to Adomah who went round the keeper and made it 1-0. It was his third goal in 2 games and we all been saying “Why has he not started very often?” because he was the best player on the pitch for me and he was a threat to the Forest defence.

Second half started and Forest put the pressure on us and it payed off from a mistake from Glenn Whelan and Daryl Murphy slotted the ball past Johnstone to make it 1-1. We responded well and Kodija who was brilliant in out-strength two players and won a free kick.

Step up Conor Hourihane who curled the ball around the wall into the bottom corner. It was a brilliant goal and the technique he used was master class. Hourihane is the best player for us at the moment. Then I witness all the players who put their bodies on the line and the effort they showed to keep the lead was amazing. Johnstone made a fantastic save from a freekick, Terry was brilliant and also he’s been very consistent every game.

Now we are 9th in the table and two points off the top 6 which I’m really happy about, now we have Burton away and Bolton home so let’s make it 12 points out of 12 in September and be contenders and show others that we can challenge this season.

Man of the match goes to Adomah who scored and he was a nightmare for defenders. I said in the other blog, he should be starting every game with Snodgrass on the other side and we can perform well.

Aston Villa 0-2 Middlesbrough (EFL Cup)| Elphick the clown!!

Patrick Bamford

Hi guys Milan here and This is a blog talking about the third round of the EFL Cup and there’s been some drama so far and speaking of drama let’s start with my team Aston Villa.

Patrick Bamford scored twice as Middlesbrough beat 10-man Aston Villa to reach the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

This game shows that with Tommy Elphick and Chris Samba in defence, we will lose the game and it has shown as Middlesbrough knocked us out of the the cup. First half was not exciting at all but we was doing alright, I mean we wasn’t creating any chances but we was staying in the game and trying to exploit a weakness.

1st goal went in a one man that we’ve been criticising him for a long time. Tommy Elphick who bottled it a brought down Bamford and got a second yellow and he got sent off. Elphick is a player that I’ve completely misjudged because somehow the desire and passion he had when he guided Bournemouth to the Premier League seemed to disappear since coming to Villa. He needs to sort it out before Steve Bruce gives him the bullet.

2nd goal went in when again, Patrick Bamford puts the nail in the coffin and send us out of the EFL Cup and we had no pray of getting back into this game. We seem to be half asleep half the time like these teams are taking performing enhancers and we taking bloody sleeping pills before the game.

Let’s hope that this doesn’t make a toxic atmosphere again and we can kick on the season and concentrate on the Championship and we can build our momentum and achieve minimum play offs. UTV!!

Barnsley 0-3 Aston Villa|Dream goal from Kienan Davis

Albert Adomah

Hi guys Milan here and Aston Villa smashed Barnsley 3-0 and it was a really good performance away from home.

This was a dominant display from Villa as we needed a win to make the travelling fans happy after the awful back to back 0-0 draws. We started well with Kodija started after coming back from a long ankle injury. He looked solid as he scored a goal but it was called offside but he was level with the last defender.

The first goal went in when Chester long ball up Adomah came for it but he was lucky as the keeper lost the ball and it was an easy tap in and I was happy and glad that he was playing because Adomah should be starting every single game with Snodgrass on the right as well.

Then before half time Elmohamady pings a ball towards youngster Davis, who went body to body with Barnsley defender Jackson and Davis went down and it was a penalty. Adomah stepped up and he was cool as a cucumber as he made it 2-0.

Second half kicked off and we came out and played like we did in the first half. 10 minutes in the second half and Elmohamady crossed the ball into the box and one man, who will remember this goal for a long time. Step foward, Kienan Davis jumped in the air and he guided his header in the bottom corner and I was so delighted for him because he had some decent games and he was so close to score a goal but tonight he scored his first ever goal.

In my opinion Davis was man-of-the-match because he made a nightmare for the opposition defenders, he won a penalty and he scored so I’m delighted with the result and to make it better, Harry Redknapp is sacked by Birmingham City so they are not having a good time after losing 3-1 to Preston.

We can build on this result play 4-4-2 and play with actual wingers and we can climb the table towards the play offs and hopefully see the scum relegated. UTV!!!

Aston Villa 0-0 Middlesbrough| Only positive is Birmingham losing

Related image

I’m not happy at all from these two games against Brenford and Boro and in this game we was better then Boro and we should of got the 3 points tonight.

Loads of boos after the game again and it’s getting toxic again and I thought we got rid of the toxic atmosphere but the bottom line is 1 win in 7 games which is shocking for our standards.

Steve Bruce actually picked a good side and the right formation so…. he must listened to the fans from the Brentford game. We had Hogan Adomah and our main man Kodija on the bench tonight and we was confident coming into this game. First half was interesting as former Villa flop, Adama Traore got a straight red card after 4 minutes which gives us an advantage to attack Boro.

Like I said in my preview we want to beat Brentford and drew to Boro but after that game it would off been a draw to Brentford and a beat Boro and that would mean the pressure would be off Steve Bruce.

Speaking of Steve Bruce I have to put some comments on him because he’s been criticised by certain few fickle Villa fans watching the game. We all know he plays negative football and organises the defence really well, but it’s shade of Di Matteo when he struggled to get the team to get to play well and get a good result.

Hope that we can get wins together like Barnsley away, Forest at home and Burton away so we need to get those points to climb the table.

Aston Villa VS Middlesbrough Preview

Image result for aston villa vs middlesbrough

Another game and another preview for Aston Villa as they face Promotion favourites Middlesbrough at home.

This is a massive game for this club because this game may decide on where we will finish and also may decide on the position of the manager Steve Bruce.

The 0-0 draw against Brentford was awful and I was watching that game and we was lucky to get a point, but we was should be getting 3 points against Brentford and a draw against Boro would be good for us but this is a must win game tonight.

There was loads of fans who are against Steve Bruce afater the Brentford game is understandable because we was playing negative football and not creating anything in the final third. Sam Johnstone and John Terry was key to keep us in the game because without them we would of lost that game.

Boro are in fantastic form so far this season with Assombalonga in form, former Villa player Adama Traore is in good form and other players are playing with confidence. With Andre Green, Kienan Davis and Josh Onomah all carrying injuries and they are three young players with bags of potential.

We have some good news as Jedinak was on the bench against Brentford and Kodija is back to full fitness as he played for the U23 squad for Villa and he will come back.

My prediction for this game will be a 1-1 draw but I want a 2-1 win for Villa.

Weekend is here… well Friday actually because that’s when Villa are playing Bristol City away so let’s hope we win.

After we beat Norwich 4-2 and then thrash Wigan 4-1 in the EFL Cup we are going there with immense confidence and our players are in hot for like Hourihane who scored a hat trick against Norwich and also Scott Hogan who has confidence after scoring 2 against Wigan.

Our away form is dreadful at the moment but now after these two games we have found the right tactics to play against teams and now we can have a go at teams. The injuries we have, when Kienan Davis has a hamstring problem but he is doubt to start, Onomah is fit to play and Jedinak is close to full fitness to start. The long injuries like Kodija and Grealish.

Starting Lineup:

GK: Sam Johnstone

RB: James Bree

CB: John Terry and James Chester

LB: Neil Taylor

CM: Glenn Whelan

CM: Henri Lansbury

CAM: Conor Hourihane

LW: Andre Green

ST: Scott Hogan

RW: Albert Adomah

My predicted score for this game will be 3-1 Villa

Aston Villa 4-2 Norwich City| Hourihane is the man!

Image result for aston villa 4 2 norwich#

Aston Villa made light of their early-season wobbles as they deservedly beat Norwich City to claim their first Championship win of the season.

Our first win of the season has finally come and it was 4-2 win over Norwich City which was a massive game and a massive 3 points for us.

The game started with Villa creating loads of chances and one man upfront got his first debut which is Kienan Davis who was fantastic as he tormented the Norwich defence and it paid off with an assist Hourihane to make it 1-0 deservedly. Then it was made 2-0 when Lansbury came on as a sub to Andre Green who’s shot curled into the top corner in-front of the Holte End.

It was good for him as his potential is really high and if he keeps his focus on football then he will do well in his career. Half time went and it was a positive from the fans as we was comfortable and it would be a good day.

Second half kicked off and Norwich got a goal back when Murphy slot one pass Johnstone. Hourihane made it 3-1 when his deflected shot went passed the keeper and our 2 goal cushion is restored. Olivera made it 3-2 when John Terry lost him and he finished well. Then Hourihane completed his hat-trick with a long range into the bottom corner.

Most people said Hourihane was Man of the Match but it was close when Kienan Davis was really good and I think he should start against Wigan in the next round of the Cup. He’s strong, quick, and very confident when he had the ball on his feet.

Let’s hope this win can be the first of many and we can climb the table into where we should be by January and then challenge for the title.
