Despite Joleon Lescott’s ill-worded comment about it being a “relief” to get […]

PREVIEW: Tough times ahead for Sherwood & Villa?

Best case scenario for this season? Refreshing, attacking football combined with a top ten finish. For too long, Villa have been skirting around the precipice of the relegation zone, with a style of play fans would lovingly describe as mind-numbing, or just downright terrible.
