Aston Villa FC – Season 2013-14

Aston Villa finished in fifteenth position in the Premier League last season as they struggled through the year, but given the fact that they had several young players in the side then this is understandable. The Club will be relieved however as there were points where it looked like they would be relegated, but some good results like the 6-1 home win over Sunderland confirmed Aston Villa’s safety.

There were plenty of positives for Aston Villa and their Manager Paul Lambert however, as the young players such as Ciaran Clark, Ashley Westwood and Andreas Weimann all flourishing at times last season and will improve for the experience next year. In addition, striker Christian Benteke had an outstanding season with his twenty three goals inall competitions helped Aston Villa consolidate their Premier League status.

There has been plenty of movement at the Club already this summer, with Aston Villa signing five players including former Sevilla defender Antonio Luna, Groningen midfielder Leandro Bacuna, Denmark international defender Jores Okore and his compatriot Nicklas Helenius. Another positive is that last season’s top scorer Christian Benteke has withdrawn his previous transfer request and has signed a new contract which keeps him at Aston Villa for the foreseeable future.

Expectations will surely be a mid-table finish for Aston Villa for the forthcoming season, as that would represent improvement for Manager Paul Lambert and his young squad of talented players.

Aston Villa Season Tickets

Aston Villa FC – Season 2012-13

Aston Villa FC  is based in Witton, Birmingham and known as Villa, Villans or Lions. To most people’s surprise, Villa is one of the most successful clubs in the history of English football.

Villa finished the 1011/12 season as 16th just 2 points outside the relegation zone. Especially the end of the season was disappointing without any wins in the last ten games. Villa only scored 37 goals throughout the season – one of the worst in the league. As a result, Aston Villa fired manager Alex McLeish and appointed Scottish ex-footballer Paul Lambert as his successor.

Big names are missing in the current squad. Only Stiliyan Petrov and goalkeeper Shay Given provide some star appeal. To avoid relegation, Aston Villa will need to further strengthen the squad for the coming season.

Rivals

The leading rivals to Aston Villa in the Premier League are their midland adversaries West Bromwich Albion, as the Baggies is currently their only derby game as Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are not in the top league for the moment. Aston Villa will be aiming to overtake the Baggies in the table this season and as such become the top team in the Midlands.

It has hosted a range of matches including games during World Cups and European Championships, whilst also staging more F.A. Cup semi-finals than any other Stadium in England.
