Didn't we just do this? I really hate the holiday fixture list. Fine, have Boxing Day. It's tradition. But why have a match two days later? In the worst weather England has to offer? "Hurr-durr tradition!" Also, "Hurr-durr injuries!" Ugh.
But, love it or hate it, it's still going to happen. And Aston Villa are traveling to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City for the first time since they've been promoted back into the Premier League. It used to be that the Canaries were good for six points for Aston Villa, but it also used to be that Villa won with some regularity, so who knows. Hopefully it's three points to the better and Aston Villa can enter 2016 with a little bit of confidence.
