Home Kit

There is some new details added to the new home kit is that Under Armour removed the collar and they added lions printed on the shirt which looks similar to Chelsea when they did the same. It looks a lot more comfortable then last season so it’s good for fans to wear and also for the players to wear on match day.

Rating: I feel out of 10 I think it’s a solid 9/10 because it the usual home kit for Villa and it always looks nice every season.

Away Kit

Under Armour went from White to Black as they went back to black for the new season. They added a lovely claret mosaic design which look good with the black and now with the new sponsor on home kit and away kit which is UNIBET which look nice.

Rating: I’m giving this Kit a solid 8/10 because we are back to black and it looks so crisp and the design looks similar to the 2010/11 away kit.

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

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!!!!

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.

Aston Villa 2-2 Preston| Vital points lost

Hi everyone Milan here and Aston Villa have drew to Preston 2-2 
Image result for aston villa 2-2 preston

I’m absolutely gutted, because we should at least got the 3 points in the game and I don’t want to hear everyone to say we were unlucky because we was missing so many key players.

First half was actually pretty decent for a team that was wrong as we was missing so many key players like Jedinak, Kodija, Ayew. But we mange to take the lead when Albert Adomah first tapped home the opener and then converted a penalty after being fouled by Aiden McGeady. I was happy as we dominated possession and shots for the whole of the first half and Preston were awful.

Second Half starts and we came out and I don’t know what was said at half time but we manage to bottled it. I feel it’s a mentality thing because it shades of when we had Di Matteo and also from last season, and I thought  we got rid of that. But Hugill isn’t the only one to score a brace in this game as he founded the top corner after an amazing run and then headed in McGeady’s cross from close range to level. 

I got to give credit to Preston for the fight back but for us we should be getting 3 points from this game. The new signing Henri Lansbury had a good debut as well he ran the midfield bring the ball forward an I’m really happy we bought a player like him.

We are still undefeated at home which is good but the one problem is that we are nine points of top 6 and we haven’t won a game since Boxing Day which is worrying me and the all the fans as well.

Let’s hope we bounce back and climb the table but all I’m hoping is to finish 7th or 8th this season and then push for the title next season.

Aston Villa VS Preston North End Preview

Hi guys Milan here and I haven’t done a preview in ages, I decided to to a preview for the home game against Preston North End.

Image result for aston villa vs preston

After crashing out of the FA Cup to Spurs and lose to Cardiff and Wolves, we need to bounce back from the defeats to maintain our hopes of finishing in the play offs. From those games we were missing Kodija and Ayew because of international duty. Hopefully the key players will comeback to strengthen our squad and fianlly drop Agbonlahor because he is useless now.

Preston won the reverse fixture in Di Matteo’s last game in charge so we need to win this game and carry on to climb the table. We brought in Sam Johnstone on loan which is a good addition, but the bad news is that he will be facing one of the clubs he was on loan to. We are also close to signing Henri Lansbury from Forest which will be good for our midfield and hopefully sign Robbie Brady which will be amazing.

Team Sheet VS Preston

Formation: 4-3-3

GK: Sam Johnstone

RB: Leandro Bacuna

CB: James Chester

CB: Nathan Baker

LB: Jordan Amavi

CM: Mile Jedinak

CM: Aaron Tshibola

CM: Gary Gardiner

LW: Jack Grealish

ST: Jonathan Kodija

RW: Albert Adomah

My prediction for this game is a 2-0 win for Villa.

I hope you enjoy this blog and I hope Villa can comeback. Please like my bogs and follow for more football madness.
