    I will use this thread to record Aston Villa's League and Cup matches in Season 2014-2015.

    All match reports and manager's verdicts, etc, can be accessed via the Link in the Aston Villa News Index thread.

    A good start to 2014-2015, so let's keep it going in the same vein :

    EPL 16/08/2014 : Stoke City 0-1 Aston Villa

    I saw most of this match on a stream, AVFC looked good as a team,
    solid in defence (at last !), with plenty of passing and no hoofing !

    AVFC is inviting Villa Fans to join the Newcastle Fans' tribute to the two NUFC victims of the MH17 air disaster.

    AVFC - Villa v Newcastle: Minute's applause for Magpies fans

    Newcastle United fans are celebrating the life of two dedicated fans this season - and we invite our supporters to join them during Saturday's early-afternoon kick-off.

    Newcastle fans are applauding in the 17th minute of games - in the same way we did to show our support for the battle with cancer of Stan Petrov in the 19th minute.

    We would like our fans to be aware of this touching tribute - and offer them the opportunity to join in.

    Aston Villa v Newcastle United, Saturday 23/08/2014, KO 12:45 Hours - Live on BT Sport.

    EPL, 23/08/2014 : Aston Villa 0 - 0 Newcastle United

    Good for AVFC to be top of the EPL table after this, albeit for a few hours only !

    I saw the game on BT Sport and I thought Newcastle were the better team, tbh, they had more scoring opportunities, but hey-ho, although I was hoping for a win for AVFC, a point is better than nothing.

    I won't be posting any more League Cup games this Season !

    League Cup Round 2 : Aston Villa 0 - 1 Leyton Orient

    Attendance : 17,918 (SSN)

    Glad I gave it a miss, it looks like 'Smash and Grab', but fair play to Leyton Orient.

    EPL, 31/08/2014 : Aston Villa 2 - 1 Hull City - AVFC up to 3rd in the EPL.

    Attendance : 28,336 (SSN)

    I saw this match on a stream, excellent performance in the first half, not so perfect in the second, but a deserved victory nonetheless.
    This is the best start in the EPL for AVFC since MON's first Season, 2006-2007.

    An excellent, solid performance, well done, AVFC.

    Up to 2nd in the EPL, just one spot below where we belong !

    EPL 20/09/2014 : Aston Villa 0 - 3 Arsenal

    I was at this game, it was good going for half an hour and suddenly AVFC are 3 goals down.
    It was one of those 'how tf did that happen ?' ... after that it was containment.
    Arsenal and a virus have buggered our chance of going top, AVFC are 3rd in the EPL atm.

    EPL 27/09/2014 : Chelsea 3 - 0 Aston Villa

    I saw this on the stream, we were defeated, but not disgraced.

    This and the other results today sees AVFC 6th in the EPL.

    As with the game against Chelsea, I thought our team, as a team, looked more together as a unit before the substitutions.

    TBH, Benteke raised a big cheer, but did precious little else.

    EPL Saturday, 18/10/2014 : Everton 3-0 Aston Villa

    The streams were duff today, I only saw bits and bobs of this.
    Maybe I was lucky, with this performance and result, not good at all.

    AVFC are 11th in the EPL atm {18/10/2014}, but will drop to 12th and then to 13th if Stoke and Albion win their games, tomorrow and Monday respectively.

    EPL 27/10/2014 : Queens Park Rangers 2-0 Aston Villa

    'Arry might write like a 4 yo, but he knows how to win football games !

    This defeat leaves AVFC in 15th in the EPL, Tottenham (Home) and West Ham (Away) next.
