Match Day: Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United

The festive season is upon us, and we’d like our first present in the form of three points against Sheffield United. Doesn’t seem like much to ask, given that their recent run of form is worse than ours. And if we’d like to stay in the playoff places a week Monday, a win is rather obviously what we need. I find myself saying that every week, and it’s getting more true as time goes by.
