 ASTON VILLA
Aston Villa manager David O'Leary is under pressure for his job according to Bet365 after yesterday's 3-2 home defeat by Middlesbrough brought boos from the Villa Park crowd at the final whistle.
With the top three competing in their own personal competition for the major Premiership spoils, Aston Villa are one of those teams who harbour outside hopes of picking up fourth spot and the potential riches that a place in the Champions League allegedly...
David O’Leary emerged from Aston Villa’s flattering 8-3 victory at Wycombe Wanderers to have a dig at some of Villa’s travelling support who booed the players off at half-time, when the team trailed 3-1 to the home side.

 ESPN.com Soccernet England: Full-time Report - Arsenal v Aston Villa
Villa, all in black, were giving just as good as they got, on a ground where they had not won for seven years, and often their passing was superior to Arsenal's.
Villa were in even bigger trouble four minutes later when Lee Hendrie was sent off for his second bookable offence, a bad foul on Pires.
Villa responded by forcing the first corner of the game after seven minutes and Arsenal did not clear it convincingly, but Lee Hendrie's instant shot from outside the area comfortably cleared the bar.

Villa were struggling to contain Giggs and Steve Staunton received a stern ticking off from Riley for fouling the winger as he geared up for another run at the Midlanders' defence.
Giggs was causing Villa problems with his runs down the left and he won a corner, which the visitors managed to clear at the second attempt.
Villa also gave a debut to record £9.5million striker Juan Pablo Angel, while the out-of-favour David Ginola was on the bench once again.

 Manchester United Official Web Site - Football Now - Match Report - 3:29:06 PM
Perhaps, in Villa’s favour is the fact that the Premiership is the one competition on which they have to concentrate, whilst United are still battling on four fronts with this league fixture sandwiched in between a FA Cup replay at Exeter and the Carling Cup semi-final, second leg with Chelsea.
Whether Villa boss David O’Leary can engineer the conclusion to this long unsuccessful spell this weekend remains to be seen, but historically this appears to be a ‘banker’ for United as they bid to keep Chelsea within their sights at the top of the table.
Villa have managed ten successes over United in Manchester over the years, but remarkably that one in 1983 was only the second since the end of the Second World War.

 Newcastle United Football Club - Match reports - Aston Villa (h)
Villa taking the lead just about put the tin lid on things, after a start in which our every move was foiled by either whistle or flag.
Certainly Villa seemed to have fallen in to the role of fall guys with the minimum of fuss, failing to consistently threaten us other than when we dwelt on the ball in defence and allowed the visitors to hassle us into unforced errors.
It just seemed a wee bit daft not to sacrifice a defender when the Villa rearguard action was in full swing, and as a consequence see Bramble in the role of playmaker on the other side of the halfway line to that which he normally experiences.

Aston Villa defender Martin Laursen ended seven months of injury misery by scoring the opening goal as David O& side regained their pride with a 2-0 home win against woeful Middlesbrough.
Villa were now in the ascendancy, but after 57 minutes Moore replaced Vassell, who had given a good account of himself in his first start for five months.
Villa won a free-kick in a dangerous position after Gareth Southgate brought down Vassell 25 yards out and Solano's curling effort was only just off target.

The Villa goalkeeper was only brought into genuine action twice, when he made an ungainly block with his legs to foil Freddie Ljungberg after Patrick Vieira had played the Sweden midfielder in on goal, then when Grimandi, found by Dennis Bergkamp, tapped tamely into his hands late on.
Villa goalkeeper David James, hoping to take advantage of England coaching assistant Tord Grip's presence in the stands and the injury absence of David Seaman, needed the opportunity to prove his abilities.
John Gregory agreed with Wenger's claim that the Villa Park surface was 'the worst in the Premiership' but the lack of quality of the pitch was matched by the players.

Aston Villa have brought together a strong squad which has helped the club flourish in the Premiership.
FA Cup success in 1957 and a League Cup triumph in 1961 increased their haul of silverware, but by 1970 Aston Villa were playing Third Division football.
Villa lost their top-flight status in 1987 but an immediate return and another pair of League Cups in the 1990s helped the club prosper in the FA Premier League, in which they finished runners-up under Ron Atkinson in 1993.

 ToffeeWeb: Aston Villa vs Everton, 2001-02
With off-the-field matters dominating the news at Aston Villa, the focus of a fairly uneventful first half was the Villa supporters' anti-Board demonstrations from the stands.
Villa brought Dion Dublin on at half-time but Merson continued to be the main Villa threat and the former Arsenal man cannoned a stunning shot off the face of the crossbar 15 minutes into the second period with Simonsen well beaten.
That said they do not appear to be the "sum of their parts" at the moment and that perhaps is why the Villa "faithful" (yeah right!) have been deserting Villa Park and aren't too shocked by the loss of Gregory.

 Aston Villa 2 - 1 Ipswich
John Gregory, the Aston Villa manager, was quick to knock down their chances of challenging for the title.
Ipswich Town are by no means rudderless and finally, after 333 minutes of trying, managed to score a Premiership goal but they remain badly adrift at the bottom of the table after defeat last night by Aston Villa, for whom Juan Pablo Angel scored twice on his recall.
George was replaced by Jamie Clapham and Villa brought on Dion Dublin for Hendrie to beef up their attack.

His squad is so thin at Aston Villa - apparently - that he's grateful to be above the relegation fight let alone challenging "the might of Newcastle and Liverpool".
Villa started the brighter of the two sides and that included the kick-off - a tactical masterstoke of actually finding opponents with passes rather than a big hoof out to the wing.
A poorly conceived penalty shoot-out(?) that involved three youngsters running at an empty goal and shooting when adjacent with a couple of chairs was hosted by the usual denim-clad would-be disc jock.

 Villan Webring
Aston Villa were formed in March 1874, under the dim glow of a Victorian street lamp in Heathfield Road, Birchfield, Birmingham by four members of the Aston Villa Wesleyan Chapel Cricket Club.
Villa’s response was described as ‘bold and imaginative’ when they became the first Division One club to draft in a foreign manager in the shape of Doctor Jozef Venglos, the former highly successful Czechoslovakian World Cup Coach.
Atkinson’s reign at Villa Park, spread over three years and four months, achieved much that was expected of it yet, to widespread disappointment, ended with a decline and his dismissal in November 1994.

Paul Scholes scored twice in five minutes as Manchester United came from behind to beat Aston Villa 2-1 at Villa Park on Sunday to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The move paid off as Scholes struck first in the 64th minute when the Villa defence went missing leaving both the England attacking midfielder and van Nistelrooy unmarked in the penalty area but it was Scholes who tapped in Ryan Giggs's pass.
Villa dominated early on with Tim Howard forced to save superbly from Juan Pablo Angel and Darius Vassell.

A fierce Thomas Hitzlsperger strike gave Aston Villa a rare away win.

At the moment they are inching towards the security of 40 points, but Villa, who had won just once on the road coming into the match, were there for the taking.

 Guardian Unlimited Football Match Reports Aston Villa 2 - 1 Everton
An unbeaten run of seven games has done much to ensure Aston Villa manager John Gregory will not be scanning the job adverts this summer, but given Gareth Southgate good cause to consult a careers adviser.
Eight games ago Villa languished in 14th place and there was an ominous rustle of P45s being prepared in chairman Doug Ellis's office.
It was Ellis's holiday in Mauritius last year and his chance meeting with David Ginola that resulted in the Frenchman joining Villa - a rendezvous that Gregory had cause to be grateful for on Saturday.

 Bolton Wanderers v Aston Villa (01/09/02)
Aston Villa had few chances and did little to trouble Jussi Jaaskelainen's goal, but the away side was given too much room on the wings, but thankfully the Whites continued their domination.
The home side went a little off the boil, content with the lead, but Aston Villa couldn't create anything threatening, even to the injury damaged side.
Bolton were looking for their first points of the season and started the game superior to Graham Taylor's Aston Villa side.
