Setting the Table: AVFC News You Need Now as Club Looks to Norwich

Clive Rose

A quick look at all the Aston Villa news you need to start your week.

I didn't get to watch the match this weekend, but I've read all about it! Not that I enjoyed that very much. Good grief, Aston Villa. At least make me regret missing you.

Regardless, I would have felt badly if I hadn't given you all the AVFC news you can use in one place. Let's get on with it!

Injuries

New Injuries Last Week:

Returned from Injury

The Week That Was

  • Stephen Ireland returned from injury this week. Hopefully he will return from his season-long malaise soon.
  • Aston Villa hired Simone Farina, the whistleblower in an Italian cheating scandal, to be a community coach.
  • Paul Lambert reminded us that, yes, Christian Benteke is young and that, yes, he is really really talented. Nevertheless, it's a bit disconcerting to see a manager saying that he is "uneasy" about the price he paid for his signature signing.
  • Watching Aston Villa is a better value than watching some League Two clubs! And yes, that even counts the part where you watch Villa play.

Match Notes

Fulham 1-0 Aston Villa (EPL)
Chris Baird (84')

  • As I said above, I can't say much about this match, aside from the fact that Villa really desperately need another win. Remember when watching football was fun?
  • The Birmingham Mail have their recap here.
  • You can find our recap here.
  • SB Nation's Cottagers Confidential wrote about the match as well.
  • The WhoScored recap is here.

Looking Ahead

  • Paul Lambert gets the first chance to face off against his former club this week, as Norwich City travel to Villa Park.
  • It's not must-win time yet, but Lambert desperately needs a win to give himself some breathing room with numerous fans.
Stick around, we'll have posts up all week as the team get prepared for their return to Villa Park.
