At this point, it's safe to say that Aston Villa have had one of their more inconsistent seasons, in fact, I'll define and file this 2014/2015 season as inconsistent, or maybe we could top it off and just write the whole damned thing off as the Year of our Inconsistent.
There have been a few bright spots this season; Villa's cup performances, Shay Given against Leicester, Benteke's bender against United, Okore & Clark, and Carles Gil among others. Those lone positives haven't been enough to steady the ship at Villa, which saw a positive start to the season drop off a cliff into hopelessness. Paul Lambert's gone and the team still look just as damned at this point in time.
Remember the running joke that Aston Villa couldn't run their 'Goal of the Month' contest, you know, because there were some months that didn't see the net bulge? I was thinking earlier about another award, one that comes in the summer. Aston Villa's Player of the Season won't be a hard medal to give away. After all, in my mind there is only one candidate.
