Following a difficult summer for Aston Villa fans as we seemingly edged closer to potential administration as former sole owner Dr Tony Xia appeared to gamble everything on promotion as his own cash flow dried up, recent weeks have been full of positivity.
Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens completed their majority takeover of the club, we even saw some incoming players and with an opening day victory over Hull City, that just got a little bit better earlier today as we made it back to back wins over Wigan Athletic for the first time since 1999.
Goals from James Chester and Birkir Bjarnason, as well as an own goal, turned the day around for us and we now go for three wins on the spin at the start of a season for the first time since the 1962/63 campaign.
With plenty of reasons to celebrate today, some fans in our usually forgiving bunch found one reason to complain though.

It’s fair to say it didn’t go over well.
Because we haven’t lost yet
