The football may not be pretty for Aston Villa, but Matt Turvey looks at why beauty isn’t always the way to achieve success.
Does Aston Villa’s lack of transfer activity so far in January signal a lack of ambition or detachment from reality? Hardly.
Who will replace Darren Bent, how do Villa beat United, and who cares where Richard Dunne is training?
As “disappointing” as Villa might have seemed, it wasn’t all that bad. AVL’s John Clark is alright with the fact that Villa had enough to get a hard-earned point.
A healthy starting XI is all well and good, but AVL’s Martin Laurence wonders about the rest.
