Aston Villa's new manager, Tim Sherwood, took charge of his first Premier League game on Saturday and the result put paid to early hope that we might have a miracle worker on our hands. Stoke City visited Villa Park and came from behind to take all three points thanks to a stoppage time Victor Moses penalty. And it had all started so brightly, too.
With that, Villa drop to 19th in the table. In this week's show Chris and Steve pick over the bones of the 2-1 home loss and try to find some positives in amongst the dirge. We preview next weekend's trip to Newcastle United and make some assumptions about Villa's short-term future. One thing's for sure: we need points, and we need them fast.
