Villa Score Twice! And Win A Game!

Villa Score Twice! And Win A Game!

Not since December 7 had Aston Villa either scored twice or won a game in the Premier League. But thanks to Ben Foster having a flappy mare, Tim Sherwood's Villa have beaten West Brom 2-1 courtesy of a late, late penalty from Christian Benteke. They are out of the relegation zone and snapping at the heels of Hull and Sunderland, who played out a scrappy 1-1 that saw Gus Poyet sent to the stands after clashing with Steve Bruce.

f I were Manuel Pellegrini I would keep quiet and hope the Board didn't notice City not winning anything. If he isn't sacked I'd be astonished.

Pellegrini: I won't be sacked

till I suppose it still gives him at least another year in the job. By the time it comes around , he can always make up another excuse. First it was 3 months , then a year .....Next year ? Whats his excuse with Van Persie ?
