Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Villa ultimately snatched ‘victory’ from the jaws of defeat, God might have had a hand in it, and Dean Smith was ultimately to squash talk that he didn’t know what he was doing.
This is it.
Aston Villa host Arsenal this evening with two games left and four to six points needed to secure survival. It was never going to be easy. That’s not the Villa way. But the failings of our fellow relegation contenders have kept hope alive, and hope isn’t easy to relinquish. For the most part.
Another day, another cup final, or semifinal, or something. Regardless, another couple hours of hell. The life of a Villan.
Well, here it is, Villans. A must-win if ever there was one. Am I confident? No.
