Earlier this evening Aston Villa welcomed high flying Sheffield United to Villa Park for our latest Championship clash.
With manager Chris Wilder’s side gunning for the automatic promotion spots, head coach Dean Smith has his eyes on closing the gap that has built up to sixth place and the Play-Off positions as we looked to put a more disappointing festive and New Year period behind us and get back on track.
If I say firstly, come the hour mark, we hadn’t had a single shot on target would that explain the match?
By that point, we were of course two goals down, as Billy Sharp found the net in the eleventh and 53rd minute to set himself up for a hattrick and it was dire.
Truly, truly, extremely dire.
Billy Sharp completed his hattrick in the 62nd minute and I can’t have been alone in giving up the will to live at that point.
I’m not sure what happened, but Tyrone Mings, Tammy Abraham and Andre Green then got on the scoresheet to save a point with an incredible finish to the match to tie it up at 3-3.
I’m off for a lie down and a large drink and I’m not discussing the referee and potential penalties.
