With the Championship kick-off only a week away now, Aston Villa wrapped up their pre-season preparations with a 2-1 victory over Dynamo Dresden on Saturday.

A brace of goals from Andre Green certainly lifted spirits in the 90 minutes as we prepare for life under new owners with plenty of work needing to be done behind the scenes after the ‘gamble that went wrong’ and of course from Green’s point of view, he’s having a wonderful pre-season so far given his time on the sidelines last season where big things were expected from him.

One man who didn’t have such a great game was Jed Steer.

The former Norwich City youngster has been waiting patiently for a real chance between the sticks at Aston Villa and plenty of fans were hopeful he’d get just that this season following the FUBAR with Sam Johnstone and it’s not like he hasn’t impressed in his brief appearances for us so far.

So his error was uncharacteristic and personally I doubt he’d have taken that risk had the game actually meant something – but everyone has their own opinion.

Having seen David James and Mark Bosnich in their prime for us I’m inclined to put this down as ‘whoops, don’t do it again lad’ but social media is hardly that forgiving or understanding but I am glad somebody pointed out the defender should’ve been blocking off their attacker.

I’m also glad plenty noticed everyone makes mistakes in the game and refused to go all Jeremy Kyle.
