Aston Villa failed to provide the desired response to their thrashing at Stamford Bridge, instead delivering a sack full of beautifully wrapped humiliation for their supporters. Chris and Steve celebrate the new year by looking back over the last two embarrassments of the old one, namely a 4-0 loss at home to Tottenham Hotspur and a comprehensive 3-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic.

First, Villa go to Swansea City in the Premier League looking to arrest a run of three heavy defeats on the spin. Second, an FA Cup clash at home to Ipswich Town. Confidence, it's fair to say, is at rock bottom.
