And it's Assstonnn Villa. Aston Villa FC! By far the greatest team...
And so it goes. After a win over Norwich on the weekend, it is good to be a Villa fan once more and with two games left until the International Break, AVFC have a good chance of closing this first chapter on a strong note.
Wigan Athletic are first up in the Cup in a rare untelevised game for the Villa. Villa don't want to lose this game as it might scupper momentum heading into Friday's match at Bristol.
The trophy has took a few hits in prestige over the years, but it’s one Villa have history in. Let’s win the bastard. Or at least not go out in the second round!
