finished 0-1 so that's 8 wins on the bounce and the title is still possible, we're 4 behind with a game in hand, the problem is there's only 1 game left for blackburn so they just have to win that.

The game in hand is against a very poor Newcastle team and 2nd (and therefore playoffs) is guaranteed after tonight.  When you consider most of our regulars are 18-20 and this is a U23 competition we should be very proud of the kids.


Edited, didn't know there were playoffs, that's a bit shit in a 12 team league like this.

Suliman and Bedeau stand out players both bulking out and shouldn't be far off a 1st team run out

I hope so, Suliman I've liked for a while because I think he reads the game well for his age and Bedeau seems to be a bit more of a battler, they look a good pairing.

When you consider that Bedeau is nearly 2 years younger than Suliman, that is very encouraging.

Bedeau was 18 last Christmas - Suliman was 20 in January

Bedeau is taller and stronger, that's a big leveller at that age.

Just got back from  Ewood Park Another win,that is 8 on the trot now. Villa really had to work for this win. It was like the Alamo at times but these Villa boys don't know when they are beat .Even the ref and linesman giving them every decision and playing nearly 7 added minutes could'nt stop us. I think we had to take RHM off before he got sent off as he came in for some rough treatment from their central defenders . Lyden took his goal well,good to see him fit and playing again

Disappointing night for Villa U23  Strange team selection by McDonald/Delaney .Six of the team who played at Blackburn played but Borg who made the goal,Suliman who was one of the best players on the pitch ,Lyden who scored the goal,Davies and RHM all left out .So play offs it is
