Aston Villa Must Chase Quality, Not Quantity, This Summer

Aston Villa Must Chase Quality, Not Quantity, This Summer

Aston Villa can count themselves lucky to be heading into a second season in the Premier League, rather than looking at the prospect of a season back in the Championship, but they shouldn't care about that. Villa took a point from a draw with Sheffield United when goal-line technology failed to award Sheffield United a clear goal. Villa fans will, and should, point out that they could still have come back to score in that game. And they had their …

Five Potential Landing Spots for Wilfried Zaha

Five Potential Landing Spots for Wilfried Zaha
