It might not be official but it's really really real for the first time. By losing to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday - their eighth consecutive defeat - Aston Villa condemned themselves to relegation from the Premier League into the Football League Championship. With sloppy goals conceded by a badly selected, incapable and gutless Villa line-up, the Bournemouth game was a fine summary of the season as a whole.
Norwich City's failure to take anything away from Crystal Palace means that Villa are, technically, not yet relegated. Nevertheless, in this week's show Chris and Steve follow up a brief chat about the Bournemouth game and its various curios with a discussion about the realities of the drop. It's over, folks. The game is up.
