Agbonlahor's goal can't lift the Villa gloom

Nathaniel Clyne scored a late goal for Southampton as they earned a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa.

The contrast between past and present couldn't be more stark at Aston Villa. With cruel -- some might say comedic timing -- Monday night's 1-1 draw against Southampton coincided with the club's 140th anniversary.

That is a landmark to be celebrated, and it was. A three metre recreation of the gas lamp that the founders of Villa gathered under, in November 1874, to discuss the formation of a new football club was unveiled before the game. Villa has a rich heritage, a glorious history, and a permanent...

Jores Okore set for a delayed return for Villa

Jores Okore's absence this season has puzzled many an Aston Villa supporter.
Jores Okore's absence this season has puzzled many an Aston Villa supporter.

Aston Villa fans may finally get to see Jores Okore in action on Monday night, although the circumstances are far from ideal. With a trio of centre backs in Ron Vlaar, Philippe Senderos and Nathan Baker all ruled out for the visit of Southampton, Okore's comeback will be a fierce examination of his fitness and ability.

The Dane hasn't played a single minute of competitive football for Villa's senior team since last September, the day he sustained a cruciate knee ligament injury against Newcastle....

Full transcript: Fiery exchange between Keane and Irish journalists

Martin O'Neill has admitted an alleged hotel fight between his Ireland deputy Roy Keane and a fan is a distraction ahead of their Euro 2016 clash with Scotland, but backed his assistant.

As Monday happened to be a day of the week ending in 'Y' again this week, the Republic of Ireland's assistant manager Roy Keane found himself embroiled in a tense stand-off with journalists at an FAI press conference.

Keane was asked by a reporter whether or not he believed the media sideshow that constantly envelopes him was becoming a distraction to Martin O'Neill's mission to haul Ireland through Euro 2016 qualification. Of course, Keane took umbrage at the line of questioning and replied in...

The ESPN FC crew respond to your tweets and discuss the candidates for EPL MVP thus far and question whether or not Craig Burley will ever manage.

- Europe: Star players for the continental clubs so far

Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez

In a season when Arsenal have lurched from the less than sublime to the beyond ridiculous, the Chilean stands head and shoulders above anyone else. Desire, work rate, energy, application, a hunger to make an impact on games and the end product to back it up. So far...

Brad Guzan the lone star as Villa settle for a dull draw vs West Ham

Aston Villa failed to score yet again, as they were held to a nil-nil draw by West Ham.

When Paul Lambert leaves Aston Villa, whether that is in a week, a month or a year, there will inevitably be a review of his time as manager. Within that analysis will be a large tick in the "plus" column against not only his decision to convince Brad Guzan to return to the club in 2012, but also to install the American as his No. 1 goalkeeper.

Guzan has rarely let his boss down in a two and a bit seasons and was at his best again as he earned his team a point from Saturday's 0-0 draw at West...

Former Thailand boss Peter Withe: Why I want to manage Aston Villa

Aston Villa's 1982 European Cup hero Peter Withe has coached the national teams of Thailand and Indonesia but is now in charge of a club in the Thai second tier.

For a man who once scored the winning goal in a European Cup final for the reigning English champions, it might have seemed like a small achievement.

Yet Peter Withe felt a strong sense of satisfaction as his struggling Thai club side avoided relegation on the final day of the season last weekend. Withe is a coaching hero in Thailand after helping the national team become champions of Southeast Asia in 2000 and 2002. These days, he carries the same passion as he manages Nakhon Pathom United FC,...
