The Relegation Battle No One Wants To Escape?

The Relegation Battle No One Wants To Escape?In a football season that threatens a pretty unprecedented and wide open title race by modern day standards, there is also drama unfolding at the bottom of the table. From what appears to be the supernova of a dying giant in the shape of Aston Villa to an ongoing game of leapfrog between Newcastle United, Norwich City and Sunderland to keep their head above the waterline and onwards to Swansea City and Bournemouth …
The battle for Premier League survival is hotting up

The battle for Premier League survival is hotting up

The main focus of the Premier League this weekend has primarily been the fight between all the teams in the top four, in the race for the Premier League title. Whilst the openness at the top makes for an interesting run-in to the end of the campaign, the competition at the other end of the table is just as intense, where the battle to avoid relegation really is hotting up. The attention will inevitably fall on Louis Van Gaal, following …
Why Leicester City Keep Winning

Why Leicester City Keep Winning

There are many different ways of telling the amazing story of Leicester City, different points in time to start the story and different theories behind its remarkable nature. Rightly, many of the stories cite the years in the faceless doldrums of multiple owners, managers and seemingly endless amount of players on a conveyer belt passing them in and out of the club.

Villa have actually enjoyed a slight upturn in form recently, despite being rooted to the bottom of …

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

One of the few all Premier League cup clashes this weekend sees rock bottom Aston Villa welcome Manchester City to the Etihad. This fixture is unlikely to be a top flight fixture next season and this competition could be Villa's only chance of saving their season. Although they will be disappointed with the draw, it might not have been the worst thing as Manchester City are still competing on four fronts, and may want to drop out of one, to …
Aston Villa All Washed Up?

Aston Villa All Washed Up?

It never rains, but it pours for Villa fans this season and at St James’ Park the downpour was more than a metaphorical one. Manager Remi Garde can point to an improved second half performance against Newcastle and the fact that they got a draw, but if the hosts had not been wasteful in front of goal, Villa would have been dead and buried long before they got their splendid equaliser through Jordan Ayew. Perhaps that fantastic strike and coming …

Aaron Ramsey Continues to Thrive in Central Midfield

Aaron Ramsey Continues to Thrive in Central Midfield

After wins against Olympiacos and Sunderland, Arsenal capped a great week with a very comfortable 2-0 win over bottom side Aston Villa.  In the space of a week, Arsenal have gone from a team in crisis with the entire team in the hospital to a team that is through to the last 16 of the Champions League and, for at least a day, is top of the league. The Gunners three game win streak has coincided with Aaron Ramsey returning to …
