Aston Villa Review: Episode 100 - Villa defeated in West Midlands derby

In this week's Aston Villa Review, Chris and Steve rip through the wreckage of Aston Villa's Premier League defeat to West Bromwich Albion. The two sides kicked off at the Hawthorns on a relatively level footing but Villa played three quarters of the game with ten men thanks to the sending off of Kieran Richardson. Craig Gardner went on to score the game's only goal and we assess the match in full in this episode.

Next up for Villa is the visit of Manchester United to Villa Park on Saturday afternoon. With Villa continuing to struggle for goals and form, and United at least temporarily looking more like their old selves, we preview the fixture with some trepidation. Still, it's nearly Christmas, so there's that.

Aston Villa Review: Episode 99 - two wins in a week for the Villa

At last, a successful week for Aston Villa. It hasn't been easy, it certainly hasn't always been pretty, but Paul Lambert's team banked six valuable points from two games in the space of just a few days. It must be Christmas time at the arse end of the Premier League and Villa have raided the Quality Street tin for a pair of wins.

In this week's show Chris and Steve review the wins against Crystal Palace and Leicester City, including discussion of Ashley Westwood's injury and Paul Konchesky's red card, and also ask whether there's any likelihood of Villa selling naming rights at Villa Park. Finally, we embrace the FA Cup Third Round draw against Blackpool with more fervour than it deserves.
