    Season 3 - Premier League Preview

    Last season, Aston Villa surprised the league and their own ownership by finishing 5th on the tables. The Villains also finished with a league high 9 draws, which means they could go in either direction this season. With 3 new teams joining the league, precision will be key.

    Key Players

    Darren Bent is back this season after transferring in to AV midseason last year. Up top, Bent and Agbonlahor will should most of the scoring load with English internationals Ashley Young and Stuart Downing providing quality crosses into the box.

    Jean Makoun has taken a major role in the defensive midfield with his speed and tackling ability. He will be tasked with marking the oppositions most dangerous playmakers and keeping the pressure off of the ageless Brad Friedel.

    Outlook

    Much like last season, Aston Villa will be fighting to stay in the league. There has been talk of a tactics change this year to focus on tightening the defense. Although finishing 7th to stay in the PL is possible, it will be an uphill climb for AVFC.

    Just the type of game that AVFC needed early in the season. Possession was 60/40, 13 shots to 6. There was about 20 mins to open the 2nd half where ACM just took over and started firing some dangerous looks. Otherwise, it was a controlled game by AVFC. Midfielders Downing and Ireland played aggressively and Young was doing his thing down the left.

    Possesion 54/46 Villa. 12 Shots to 7 Villa. Everything was going according to plan until about 75' when Villareal switched to an all out assault. I tried to hang on but Nilmar shook free to equalize. Good game man.

    Possession 58/42 Villa. Shots 15/11 Villa. Hell of a game. Either one of us could have scored 6 goals easily. I'm looking forward to getting another shot at Villa Park later this year. Forlan is a beast and when he gets looks, it's nothing but trouble. I got a little loose defensively while I tried to open up my speedsters offensively. This game has me fired up haha.

    Hat Trick

    Yup, good game. I actually led possession in the first half, second half was all Villa. Your team seemingly won every header which made it tough to maintain possession. Solid defense as well.

    GG Cole. Pretty slow paced game overall, you had me worried at the end... almost slipped loose a couple of times.

    Great game JFace. I would say that we are pretty evenly match opponents. You starting bringing the frantic pace later in the 2nd half and I had a feeling you were going to equalize. A really well played game.
