Aston Villa FC| 5 Wins In A Row!!!!

Well this may be the first time saying this, but I believe that Aston Villa FC are back.

I know I might be over reacting a bit after beating Norwich 2-0 and then on Tuesday winning 1-0 against QPR and we have won 5 games in a row. But I believe that next season we will challenge to win the league to move us back to the Premier League where we belong.

The first man I have to thank is the owner Dr Tony Xia because since he bought Aston Villa he worked his socks off to transform the club from top to bottom. It took a while to fix because we tried Di Matteo and his staff but it didn’t work out but he has brought in players with quality like Kodija, Jedinak, Chester etc and that they have played in the Championship before. Unfortunately the results we had didn’t help him and Tony went to bring in another manager that man is Steve Bruce.

Since Steve Bruce came in it seems like the whole club has be resurrected after Villa went 9 or 10 games unbeaten and in January we brought in positive players that can strengthen the squad and hopefully the team that he has built can achieve the success we deserve at this football club. He managed to made James Chester our best centre half

since Melberg, Jedinak a leader in the midfield and made Johnathan Kodija our top scorer this season.

Speaking of Kodija I can’t remember a striker as clinical as him. He’s currently on 18 goals this season and I believe he’s been our signing of the season. He’s quick, skillful, strong, direct, likes to have a go with a shot on goal, good in the air when heading the ball so he had everything that a striker should have. I believe his partnership with Hogan will gel over time and they will be a force next season.

Before I go I want to say thank you for supporting me, viewing, liking and I feel that all  do is Aston Villa reviews and I haven’t done my usual Premier League predictions in such a long time but I thought to myself I will do my predictions again for the Premier League but I will be doing Aston Villa reviews as always. As long as you keep supporting me and I’ll be happy inside and out

Aston Villa 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday| Revenge from the first game of the season.

Jonathan Kodjia (left)

All I can say is Revenge is Sweet as remember from my last review when we lost 1-0 to them and now we won 2-0 which is our fourth win in 5 games.

Obviously I am delighted with this result as I’m looking forward to next season as I have purchased a season ticket to what this great club that is Aston Villa. First half started and we had a blow which is Henri Lansbury swapped out for Gardiner because he picked a knock in the warm up which is a big blow.

Wednesday had some good chances and had a goal which was ruled offside which was a relief around Villa Park, also they had chances and Johnstone did well to keep a clean sheet and Chester was brilliant today. The first goal came when a short corner played to Hourihane who crossed it in to Kodija who heads it brilliantly in the corner and it was 1-0 to us and we had more control and we could of scored more goals in the half.

Second half started and we suffered another injury to Nathan Baker who has been brilliant this season and it was replaced by someone who’s career has been revived by Steve Bruce in Alan Hutton and he put in a good shift as a CB. The game was dragging a bit and it went our way as Wednesday went down to 10 men as a defender caught Hourihane really late ad we had a chance to kill the game off. We did kill the game off as Adomah puts through Kodija who went round the keeper and a lovely composed finish to give us 3 points.

We need to keep pushing a hopefully finish top 10 and always look high and hopefully next season we will go back to where we belong which is the Premier League UTV!!!

Rotherham Utd 0-2 Aston Villa| 3 wins in a row!!!

Jonathan Kodija

Another day and Another win for Aston Villa. It’s magical right now as Aston Villa 2-0 away to Rotherham United to make 3 wins in a row and also 3 clean sheets in a row.

 

We haven’t won 3 game sin a row since O’Neil’s last season at Villa so it is a long time and I’m really happy that we are climbing the table now we are above Birmingham City which is an amazing feeling.

We played well from start to finish with Bjarnason had chances, Hourihane had chances even Kodjia and Adomah had chances. It could of been 5-0 to Villa. I still don’t understand how it was 0-0 at half time because they pretty much had 11 men back for Rotherham.

Second half starts and it was exactly the same as the first half as Lansbury and Jedinak winning the ball back and we tried to put the ball the the back of the net. It did end up 1-0 when Kodjia crossed the ball in and it came off a Rotherham player and it just confirmed that Rotherham are terrible this season and they will get relegated this season. 17 points in 35 games is kinda disgraceful because Villa had this last season and I feel Rotherham have to rebuild in League One.

Then we had more shots on goal and it was made 2-0 when yet again Johnathan Kodija AKA Jimmy Danger who hits it perfectly pass the goalkeeper and that was his 13th goal for Villa and he is arguably Villa’s best signing this season. 

This season will be a roller coaster ride at the moment because it’s a battle for the play-offs and also battle to survive relegation, and I did say to loads of people that this league is one of the hardest leagues in Europe. We have began March with a win and we need to keep winning away games and hopefully finish in a positive position this season UTV!!!

Aston Villa 2-0 Bristol City| Please Keep Kodija

Another Win for the Villa. Yes….. Aston Villa won 2-0 against Bristol City and I’m very happy about the result.

Jonathan Kodjia

We’ve actually have now got back to back wins and back to back clean sheets which will be good for Sam Johnstone. The game started and we started really well and we had a penalty which is massive for us to give us a boost of confidence. Kodija stepped up and……. he missed as he smashed the cross bar.

The Bristol City fans were being stupid as they are all the time by chanting saying to Kodija: “What a waste of money!”. I find it really stupid to say that because he’s our signing of the season and he’s scored 11 goals this season.

Well I say 11 goals but now it’s 12 because in the second Albert Adomah crossed the ball towards Kodija who guided the ball in the back of the net with his head and he did celebrate and, rightly so after the Bristol fans were booing him all game. The second goal came when Kodija won the ball of a defender, squared to Adomah who miskicked it and then Conor Hourihane netted his first goal for Aston Villa.

Your probably thinking “Why does the title say Please Keep Kodija”. Because he’s one of the most exciting players to watch and as a striker his soul purpose is to put the ball in the back of the net and he’s doing what a striker does. I love how he is so humble over twitter to his fans and that he’s always making the fans who paid money to go to Villa Park and he puts on a show.

Let’s keep this run going until the season finishes and hopefully beat Rotherham on the weekend to make 3 wins in a row for the first time in a long time UTV!!!!

EFL Cup Final Review| Manchester Utd 3-2 Southampton

What a final we have witness at Wembley as Manchester United won 3-2 against Southampton.

Manchester United have won the League Cup for a fifth time

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a dramatic 87th-minute winner as Manchester United edged Southampton to win the EFL Cup in a pulsating Wembley final.

I want to say commiserations Southampton because they did their fans proud who travelled a long way to Wembley to see their team play some good football. The first goal came when United won a free kick in the 18th minute, and who to step up to take it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He stepped up and he buried it in the back of the net and Forster had no chance to stop that. United made it 2-0 with a lovely calm finish by Lingard and they was in cruise control. Southampton got a goal back by Gabbiadini to give them hope.

Second half started and Southampton looked alive that they can get a second goal and it paid of with a lovely turn and shot by Gabbiadini and it’s 2-2 and it’s game on at Wembley. Both sides were at each other to see who can get the winner and it came when Ander Herrera crossed in a beautiful ball into the man with no introduction. Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Who scored a beautiful header and I don’t know why there was no defender for Southampton who’s marking him and again Forster didn’t have a chance.

This guy is a machine 35 years old and hes score 26 goals in all competitions and that is incredible from him and he’s become a legend at Man United already with the goals he scored for club and country and he’s a leader on that pitch and he has the strength required for English football.

Overall I think the right team won on the day and we have to give credit to Southampton who were like the underdogs when they knocked out Liverpool and Arsenal to get to the final so well done to Manchester United.

Aston Villa 1-0 Derby County| Wasn’t pretty but we got the job done

Well finally we got our first win of 2017 as they beat Derby County 1-0 in a hard fought Championship game.

James Chester scores against Derby

I’m happy with the result because we’ve had some unlucky games and some awful performances and the pressure was around Steve Bruce, but the pressure is off his shoulders now when James Chester netted in his first goal from a corner.

Well done to Chester as he’s been arguably our best centre-half by a clear mile this season and his partnership with Baker is looking really good. Also you have to give credit to Alan Hutton as well he’s been fantastic since Steve Bruce came in, also Lansbury has been incredible since he signed for us. Apart from the own goal against Newcastle, he’s been brilliant winning the ball back and his set pieces are brilliant as well.

A lot of people have been chatting rubbish to me saying “Why you criticising Sam Johnstone after he’s now kept his first clean sheet”. Basically I’m saying now that he did played well and made a brilliant save to keep out old Villa player Darren Bent. He needs the confidence but let’s not get carried away, he needs to do more in order because you can’t just praise him after one game where we have been slating him. Sometimes you need to be truthful and he will be getting good performances soon just wait and see. Until Gollini comes back in from loan and be better then him but oh well.

Also I want to say which I find funny but not funny for some reason when Leandro Bacuna got sent off for headbutting the linesman. I find it funny to be honest as he was brilliant in the game today but he was silly to get sent off and miss 3 crucial games.

Overall I’m happy with the result today and I want us to keep winning in order to finish mid table really because I think Play offs are miles away now. We need to keep believing in Steve Bruce and also believe in the team and next season will be better UTV!!!

What’s happening at Aston Villa?

Image result for aston villa crest

Well……. This must be awkward to write because normally you see a blog about the Premier League and all the drama or my Aston Villa game and reviews. Well Aston Villa haven’t won since Boxing Day and we’ve been unlucky at times and been terrible as we concede a goal, our heads go down and we lost like by 2 goals or 3 goals.

Nobody cared about our 2-0 lost to Spurs in the FA Cup because our main focus is the Championship and try to finish in a positive position. Some fickle villa fans say that we finish 2nd or 3rd, but I’m looking into reality. In my eyes and the majority of villa fans say that we would finish in the top 10.

We started the Season when Di Matteo in charge and we was all excited because of the only achievement he ever had as a manager which is the Champions League for Chelsea. He brought in some good players in the summer and he got out first win against Rotherham 3-0. Then it all went bad as we didn’t win after that and we was 18th, he got sacked and we appointed Steve Bruce.

Steve Bruce came in and we looked more organised then we was under Di Matteo when we decided to play 5 strikers in one game which was silly. Steve Bruce started really well with us being undefeated in his first 7 or 8 games, we lose a game but then we bounce back and we haven’t seen that in a while. Then January hit and we signed the right players and Steve Bruce had his own team.

Then the bad luck came to us and we haven’t won in 2017 yet and there was some games we played and we dominate the opponent but luck wasn’t on our side and we lose the game.

Another thing I want to talk about is Jonathan Kodija, some fickle fans have been criticising him for not passing enough and being really greedy. All I’m saying is they are just being blind and they bare forgetting that he is our top scorer with 11 goals and I bet you if he scores a hat-trick then those sort of fans will be sorry and thank him for that one game and then hate him afterwards. I love Kodija and he does what a striker suppose to do which is take risks, shoot for goal and run in behind defenders and score one or two goals.

I feel that we just need to find the right formation for the players we have signed and we can get results and I’m behind Steve Bruce and I’m saying this: Don’t Sack Steve Bruce. I’ll be here until this end of the season and next season we will challenge to win the league.
