Tim Sherwood was able to keep Aston Villa safe in the Premier League for at least another season as the club was 3 points away from being relegated. Surviving in the top flight English league was the main objective of Sherwood and his team, even though this task was fully accomplished; the 46 year old English manager said that there is no reason to celebrate as there are many things that need to be done in order to avoid going through a season similar to this one.
Staying in the bottom spots of a league and hanging by a thread is not something that any manager wants to face with his team and Sherwood is hoping that a scenario similar to this does not repeat again.
Aston Villa’s Tim Sherwood said: “We’ve got to look higher than just staying in the Premier League.We’ll take that on and it’s my job to make sure we build the club and, hopefully, make sure we don’t find ourselves in a relegation battle again.Obviously we’re not going to go from that into a Europa League team next season but I think we need a consolidating season and to build the club and take it in the right direction.” Read the rest of this entry »

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood was a relieved man after his team’s 4-0 win over Sunderland.
Villa were not given much of a chance going into the match after they had scored very few away goals this season. However, it took only 28 minutes for the club to double the total number of away goals that we have managed throughout the whole campaign. All the goals in the match came in the first half with Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor grabbing a brace for each other. Sherwood was a strange appointment given that he did not have much managerial experience.
However, the former Tottenham boss has managed three successive victories in all competitions. Apart from ensuring safety for the moment, Villa have also reached the semifinals of the FA Cup after overcoming West Brom in the last six. Speaking after the victory, Sherwood stated that Villa were now playing completely different compared to when he arrived. Former boss Paul Lambert was criticised for his defensive tactics on a number of occasions. Boasting the attacking abilities of Agbonlahor, Benteke, and Manchester City’s on loan signing Scott Sinclair, the team has been able to find a strong footing in the attacking department.

The last Premier League match that any player of Aston Villa has managed to score a single goal was back in December 20 of 2014 when Aston Villa rescued one point from their match when facing off with Manchester United.
Aston Villa is the lowest scoring team in the entire Premier League after only managing to score 11 goals in 22 matches.
Their current situation in the Premier League is one that worries many fans and supporters of the club but there are many other things which are going on that puts the future of the club into a mist of doubt and uncertainty. Read the rest of this entry »

Roy Keane spent less than 5 months as the assistant manager of Paul Lambert in Aston Villa as the Irish football manager left his position in the Premier League on November 28 of the current year and as soon as he left there were reports claiming that he left because his presence in the English team was toxic as he delivered negative vibes and influence to the team with the manager even having issues with certain players but Paul Lambert has stepped up and rejected those claims.
Paul Lambert was starting to feel frustrated by the influence and the false information that the media has been spreading around involving Roy Keane as Lambert stated that all of it was untrue: “There were no issues whatsoever. I spoke to Roy this morning and had a chat last night as well. The guy is run off his feet with his Irish commitments and I respected that. It is absolute nonsense what has been written about him.
“I find it bizarre because Roy was great for me, great for everybody at the football club. So I have nothing but thanks for Roy for coming in. There weren’t any bad words on anything.That is the disappointing thing, to read a headline whereby people said there was a poisonous atmosphere here when Roy was here. That is laughable.”
Roy Keane will continue his coaching career by focusing more on the Irish national football team where he also plays an assistant manager role along with Paul Lambert meanwhile Aston Villa is going through a fairly better campaign in the Premier League as they are safely above the bottom relegation zone which is slightly better than the previous season where they just barely managed to survive.
