Tim Sherwood must beat Stoke City to buy more time at Aston Villa

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is confident his team can get a result at Villa Park this weekend.
Tim Sherwood's side are leaking goals too easily this season.

It's the first fixture in October and yet Aston Villa's game against Stoke on Saturday has taken on huge importance.

This is matchday No. 8 of the league season and Villa have been beaten in five of the previous seven; little wonder supporters are starting to get twitchy.

Being in the bottom three -- the club sit in 18th position, two points adrift of Stoke -- at this stage of the season isn't the same as being in the bottom three at the halfway mark but even so, Villa have to stop losing games....

Jack Grealish's England choice over Ireland isn't about national pride

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood says that he expected to be disappointed at Anfield, despite his side scoring two goals against Liverpool.
Jack Grealish has picked England over the Republic of Ireland, leading to some criticism from fans of the latter national team.

To the Irish, Jack Grealish's decision to declare for England did not come as a surprise. The trail had gone dead for some time; pretty much since the Aston Villa prodigy turned down a senior call-up from Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill in August 2014.

The last remaining straws were clutched after England coach Roy Hodgson expressed some exasperation when asked about Grealish earlier this month.

"I'm not 100 percent certain of what he is waiting for," Hodgson said on Sept. 6. "Maybe before...

Aston Villa have that sinking feeling after loss at Liverpool

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood gave his reaction after his side's defeat at Liverpool.

Gone in 66 seconds -- that seemed to be Aston Villa's game plan in their 3-2 defeat against Liverpool on Saturday, as former midfielder James Milner struck just over a minute into the match.

The unease and anxiety around Anfield has been growing steadily these past few weeks, with the club winless in five league games before this one.

Villa had the opportunity to provide another testing afternoon for under-pressure manager Brendan Rodgers but instead contrived to allow Liverpool to make the perfect...

Tim Sherwood and Aston Villa can sense Liverpool anxiety at Anfield

The ESPN FC crew take a look at a must-win match for Liverpool as Aston Villa travel to Anfield.

Over the last few troubled seasons there haven't been many fixtures in which Aston Villa have enjoyed regular success. One of the very few, surprisingly, have been away days at Liverpool -- and as Tim Sherwood's team head to Anfield on Saturday, this game offers encouragement in the pursuit of much-needed league points.

In each of the last four relegation-threatened campaigns, Villa have returned from Anfield with a positive result. Two wins and two draws makes them undefeated since the 2011-12...

Aston Villa's Charles N'Zogbia dresses like a Sith Lord for training

We owe Micah Richards a debt of gratitude, for without him we would never have had the privilege of witnessing the outfit selected by Charles N'Zogbia to turn up for Aston Villa training on Wednesday.

By the looks of his baffling ankle-length cape ensemble, we would posit that Darth N'Zogbia has just become the Sith's latest recruit.

In fact, all that's missing is the double-ended lightsaber.

West Brom woe means Villa must hit back against bitter rivals Birmingham

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood was defiant despite seeing his side lose a derby to West Brom.

Aston Villa's 1-0 derby defeat to West Brom on Saturday is a game best forgotten quickly. Low on quality, drama and excitement, it was settled by the scruffiest of goals from Saido Berahino.

In defeats earlier this season to Crystal Palace and Leicester, Villa at least performed brightly and provided some positives by way of consolation; so too in the 2-2 home draw with Sunderland.

The 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in August was made more acceptable by the quality of the opposition. But against...
