Aston Villa and the never-ending win-less streak

This post is really dumb. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Aston Villa have not won a football match since September 13th. Today is November 14th. That is over two months. While the draw against West Ham was at least a step in the right direction, it still wasn't a win. The next match against Southampton doesn't seem promising, but the following week's trip to Burnley might be a decent chance. Not wanting to wait that long, I made myself a time machine and decided to see how long the win-less streak will last.

Due to injuries, Jores Okore is forced into the starting lineup. He makes it through the full 90 minutes, but does score an own goal in a 2-0 loss. Nathan Baker has to be taken off in the 67th minute after suffering a head injury.

Villa take an early lead against Burnley thanks to a goal from Andreas Weimann. However, Burnley come storming back to win 2-1 after a series of defensive errors from Ciaran Clark. Nathan Baker has to be taken off in the 67th minute after suffering a head injury.

Unable to pick up a win in the meantime, Villa take a lead away at Hull and look set to finally end the run. In the 90th minute, a Hull City corner kick pinballs off all eleven Aston Villa players before hitting off Philippe Senderos' face and ballooning into the net. The match finishes 1-1. Nathan Baker has to be taken off in the 67th minute after suffering a head injury.

Villa travel to Blackburn to take on Rovers. In the 35th minute, Gabby Agbonlahor goes past the keeper and looks set to slot home a goal into an empty net. However, he falls over and the ball meekly rolls over the endline for a goal kick. A frustrated Brad Guzan is sent off after wandering outside the box and putting in a two-footed, studs up tackle...on Ciaran Clark. Blackburn win 1-0.

Villa host Championship relegation candidates Brentford. In an effort to distract the opposition, Alan Hutton plays the match in a full chicken suit. It works for a little bit, but the other 21 players eventually chase him out of the stadium after the 30th time he hacks down a Brentford player and says it was a "fowl". Brentford win 2-0.

With both teams now in League One, the Second City Derby makes a 'triumphant' return. All fans in attendance fall asleep. Nathan Baker has to be taken off in the 67th minute after suffering a head injury.

Due to the financial troubles of several other clubs, Aston Villa have remained in League One, despite not winning a match in 13 years. After running out of pre-match speech ideas, Paul Lambert performs all of Celine Dion's Let's Talk About Love album to try and pump up the team. Norwich City beat Villa 3-1.

Gabby Agbonlahor's son Zabby Agbonlahor makes his debut for the club. He looks promising but is wayward in front of goal as Villa lose to Cheltenham Town 2-0. Nathan Baker has to be taken off in the 67th minute after suffering a head injury.

The score is 0-0 in the 90th minute in a Conference North match against Birmingham City in post-apocalyptic Villa Park.
