Aston Villa

 By Chris Wright

Aston Villa challenged by Seaford to find England's most boring team

Paul Lambert's attack has been anemic in long stretches of the season thus far.
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has had little reason to leap off the bench this season.

You probably don't need us to tell you that things are at a decidedly low ebb at Aston Villa at the moment, with Paul Lambert's shot-shy side managing to score a frankly dismal 11 league goals so far this season in the space of 22 games.

However, while Villa fans are perfectly entitled to moan, they should really spare a thought for supporters of non-league Seaford Town, one of the only clubs in the top 10 divisions of English football with a worse goal record than Lambert's impotent mob.

Brad Guzan is hoping to cement his place as the U.S.'s No. 1 goalkeeper

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop weigh in on Jozy Altidore's move to Toronto FC.
Due to Tim Howard's decision to take a break from international duty, Brad Guzan finally has a chance to get an extended run of games and prove that he is worthy of the U.S.'s No. 1 goalkeeper spot.

Brad Guzan's immediate focus may be on Aston Villa's battle to survive in the Premier League, but 2015 also offers the goalkeeper a golden chance to establish himself as a starter on the United States national team.

When ESPN FC caught up with the 30-year-old stopper at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training base, he opened up on a host of topics that provided an insight into a figure who has slowly emerged from the shadows to become a key man for club and country.

Paul Lambert needs to be more positive to stop Villa's steady decline

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes his side were excellent against Liverpool and should have scored at least one goal.

In the main, the claret and blue faithful refrained. There were some empty spaces in the Holte End at kick-off but the attendance was just under the 40,000 mark at Villa Park. This was a great turnout given the likelihood of the entertainment on offer.

The fans kept their side of the bargain...

Unrest and protest overshadows Villa Park

A big weekend in the Premier League featured relegation battles, a battle for Champions League position, and a manager returning to a familiar place.

Villa signed a new player this week, but the arrival of Carles Gil was overshadowed somewhat by the growing frustrations of a fan base disillusioned by the direction of the club. Gil could make his debut against Liverpool on Saturday, but the increased media coverage surrounding the fixture in the days leading up to kick-off hasn't been driven by the new arrival, or the game itself. It's all about the planned protest from home supporters.

The idea is that fans vacate their seats in the Holte...
