Aston Villa 1-0 Bolton| Ugly but three points again

Jonathan Kodjia

Aston Villa makes it 4 wins in a row after beating Bolton 1-0 in wet conditions at Villa Park.

The game was really stressful when we have chance after chance in the first half, but eventually we did took we when Kodija was brought down and he stepped up. Kodija needed a goal to get the confidence after the ankle injury, he stepped up sends the keeper the wrong way and it’s 1-0.

But the rest off the game was just boring, let’s be honest. But I’m happy with the result as we are 7th in the league, a point off the play-offs, three points off top four, 5 clean sheets out of six and unbeaten at home and unbeaten in 8 games. But somehow these amazing stats that I’ve said doesn’t make a difference to some Villa fans who are still ¬†screaming Bruce Out.

Speaking about this I want to address this to many fans about Steve Bruce. Because it’s frustrating me that fans are still moaning even when we are doing good. I put a post on Facebook to see who’s Bruce in and Bruce out. To my surprise theirs more for Bruce out and theirs a few fans who are Bruce in. In my opinion I am Bruce in because Steve Bruce is by far a better manager then the last 4 or 5 managers we had after Martin O’Neil. He can actually organise a defence and can put in the right discipline towards the players and be completely honest when in press conferences and post match reactions.

His championship record speaks for itself when he gained promotion with 3 or 4 teams to the Premier League. He is the right man for the job and we should hold on to him for a long time until the right man comes along to carry on the dynasty in the near future. I remember when we had Martin O’Neil and we was finishing 6th in three consecutive seasons. Then him and then owner Randy Lerner parted ways and my goodness, that was the worst decision we’ve ever made.

All I’m saying is get behind Steve Bruce and get behind the team and we will become better then ever when we are back in the Premier League UTV!!

Burton Albion 0-4 Aston Villa| Burton were outclassed!

Robert Snodgrass celebrates

4 goals, clean sheet, 3 wins in a row and I wonder why people are moaning still? Aston Villa came to Burton’s ground and we showed our class today and we smashed Burton Albion 4-0!

What can I say that’s bad about the game for us, we came to Burton Albion and we continued our good form and now we are a point off the play offs. First half kicked off and we started well when Elmohamady (Who’s been decent so far) crossed the ball in the ball and youngster dominated in the air, headed the ball into the net and we was off to a good start.

Then it was 2-0 when Snodgrass played a through ball and Adomah puts the ball into the bottom corner without any fear. Then it was made 3-0 when the ball was in the air and Snodgrass hits it perfectly first time into the corner and it was his first goal for Villa.

Second half started and we stepped off the gas a bit and we was in cruise control. Steve Bruce took Kodija and Davis off for Hogan and Onomah, which was good because they can rest and train for the game against Bolton on the weekend. Then the damage was completed when Hogan squared the ball across the Onomah who made it 4-0 and overall it was a fantastic performance from Villa.

I feel that Bolton will play defensive because they know Villa are in from so we need to score a goal and then we can dominate Bolton and 3 points will be ours. Keep the momentum and we can be in the top 6 in no time UTV!!!

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.

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 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.

Bristol City VS Aston Villa Preview

Image result for bristol city vs aston 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.
