Fifty/Fifty Month For The Villans
Aston Villa had a great start to the month but a dodgy end to the month as Villa hit 8 goals but conceded 6.
First up this month were Wigan and it was an easy match all in all because it was like Wigan did not turn up but it might have been because of how good attacking midfielder Kevin Volland was. He scored the first on the 5th minute and then set up Luc Casaignos to make it 2-0 to Villa. Ruben Garcia finished the romp off in the 60th minute and Wigan manager Uwe Rosler was complimentary to Villa after the match.
Aston Villa were very good today and deserved the victory. when you come against players like Kevin (Volland) and they are on form we can not compete. It is a shame for them (Villa) that they are not with the top sides in the Premier League, but if they play like that more often than not they will be up there at the end of next season
Villa then destroyed Stoke 3-0 and Luc Castaignos, who has been on for this season scored again to compliment John Stones and Dorin Rotariu. Aston Villa were very strong in the tackle against Stoke and it was bordering too aggressive but the referee saw nothing wrong with it.
Then Villa lost there next two matches, Chelsea destroyed them within 28 minutes to win 3-0 and despite a fightback against Swansea through Castaignos and Volland, the Welsh side hung on for a 3-2 win.
Aston Villa, though are showing great improvement and although there are still times where they get the odd thumping, I think it obvious you can see they are the up and coming force in the Premier League. It may take two or three seasons to happen but we are expecting them to make more signings in the summer and really push on next season. They have a great pool of players now and with additions such as Cabaye, Volland and Stones it demonstrates how much new chair man Mario Palttner is willing to go to bring success to Aston Villa and thier fans.
Arsenal, yet again have thrown it away this season and currently lie in 3rd place behind Man Utd in second and Chelsea. United have a game in hand, if they win that then they will be in the driving seat to win the title with 6 games to go. Everton are two points behind Arsenal in 5th place with Liverpool and Q.P.R 10 points behind Everton.
Aston Villa are in 11th on 40 points, which means that they should be safe and can now look forward to hopefully moving up the table next season. Southampton's fate is almost sealed as they are 8 points off safety with Hull, Leicester, Wigan, Charlton and Nottingham Forest have a big scrap over who else can avoid going down with Southampton.
Villa Player Of The Month
Luc Castaignos, again picks up the Villa Player Of The Month award. He scored 3 goals in 4 games this month meaning he has scored 13 goals this season meaning he is just 2 goals off the season's total from last season. It is going to be important that he carries it on for the rest of the season.
