Another One Bites The Dust – Bottom Three With 20 Games In Hand? Updated


Ian Taylor has just tweeted out that the home match v Everton has now been postponed.

And now official confirmation also

So our next game will be Wednesday 20th January, which is the re-arranged game away v Manchester City

Villa go on to say that the postponed game (due to an outbreak up t’north at their training ground) v Newcastle United will now be played on January 23 at silly-o-clock (8pm).

Looks like most agree with the decision, hard not to really isn’t it?

And this made me laugh

The next few fixtures, depending on the health of us and our opponents one suspects:

20/01/2021 18:00 Manchester City v Aston Villa BT Sports
23/01/2021 20.00 Aston Villa v Newcastle United
27/01/2021 18:00 Burnley v Aston Villa BT Sport
30/01/2021 20:00 Southampton v Aston Villa Sky Sports
02/02/2021 19:45 Aston Villa v West Ham United

And since the article was published, already another change, the game on Wednesday is now 6pm.

We’re Aston Villa, we play when we want!

Not sure this is going to be sustainable though. Are you? Newcastle and Fulham have had matches postponed, we had to play our kids (and didn’t they do us proud?) in the FA Cup, now we have had to postpone two games and on it will go with the current situation with infections. I’ve long since argued, from the first lockdown onward, that if the games can be played, they should be played – and other sports – because whilst we all have to lead these strange lives, it gives us something positive to focus on. But obviously, the health and safety of players and staff have to be put first.

Time, I guess, will tell. Hope the season can continue, in a healthy way for all players and staff, if not, maybe a circuit breaker will be required.

The thing that keeps me going football wise, is the thoughts of the sound we’ll make when the lions are finally able to attend the games and roar once again.
