Advantage Villa

It wasn’t a thing of beauty, but Aston Villa found a way through Albion’s bus-park to gain a critical 2-1 advantage in leg one of the playoff semifinal. Another fightback, and a return to winning ways in a game that counted. This team doesn’t have much quit in it. In days past, I wouldn’t have been at all surprised to see Villa walk away on the wrong end of an 0-1 scoreline.

C’mon the Midlands!

Do Aston Villa need Birmingham City Football Club? Do they need Wolves? Or how about West Brom? Of course they do. What is it going to take for all four West Midlands sides to be in the Premiership at the same time?
