Aston Villa lifted our first piece of silverware for the season at the weekend as our first-team players welcomed new owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens to the club.

Making the short trip to the Pirelli Stadium to face Burton Albion on Saturday, Villa took a comfortable 4-0 victory in the Bass Vase Trophy affair with goals coming from Jonathan Kodjia, Albert Adomah, Ritchie De Laet and Gary Gardner.

Pre-season is all about fitness obviously but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of silverware and solid wins to boost confidence ahead of the coming 2018/19 Championship campaign. Irrespective of the poop hitting the fan recently, even if it wasn’t a stated aim this year, a quiet ambition would remain challenging for promotion as it’s what the club want and there will be fans who demand nothing less than the effort to achieve that.

Given the headlines this last month and a bit, pre-season games were also a welcome distraction!

Reactions to our success on social media as we close the gap on the Trillion Trophy bunch down the road weren’t entirely serious.

  • I think we are on the road again with our new investors if Man U, Man City, and other big outfits can get around FFP rules I’m sure our new very rich business men investors will be looking at it, so it’s just a wait and see.
    I also believe that we won’t be selling any of our best players this window ,and I’m now wondering if we will see Terry and Snoddy back. Tomorrow’s meeting will be very interesting not sure whether Bruce will be staying but not bothered either way. Glad that we didn’t let Jack go to spurs for half of his value looked at one stage that might happen, but clearly not now.40 m or no go.
    Let’s hope all works out this time and with the financial clout of our new investors anything could happen.
    I’m pleased for our fans more than anything we just need to somehow get the FFP thing sorted, but the future looks good now.
