Pre Season

Before the season startet the former Mayor of London managed to bring in French full back Atila Turan for £2m from Grenoble
View attachment 137341

Aston Villa 3-3 Swansea
Downing
Albrighton
Delfouneso

Yeovil 2-2 Aston Villa
Andy Weimann
James Collins

Darlington 0-6 Aston Villa
A.Young
Turan
Albrighton

Petrov

Aston Villa 3-1 Shrewsbury
Abrighton
Jonathon Hogg
Agbonlahor

Bristol Rovers 0-1 Aston Villa
James Collins

Aston Villa 2-0 Macclesfield
Daniel Johnson
Gabriel Agbonlahor

heres what Boris had to say about his pre-season
Reporter; You had some good results Boris tell me about the poor 2-2 draw with Yeovil

Boris: With us going in at half time behind I told them they better buck up the ideas or I will take them to go and see David Cameron and make them listen to his politica agenda and I think that gave them the urge to comeback

Reporter: Your new signing Atila turan has showed some great performances in pre-season how big a role will he have at the club

Boris: As big as I did as the mayor

Reporter: What can you tell us about the injuries sustained to Stewart Downing and Ashley Young

Boris: Ashley will be out till early September and Stewart will be crippled for 4-5 months

Reporter: thanks for your time

So with the season beckoning how will Aston Villa fair in the Premier League

August

So the season started with home game against West Brom with a derby so early in the season it would be crucial that we picked up points

View attachment 137362

Aston Villa 2-1 West Brom
Park Ji Sung 12 Odemwingie 3
Reo Coker 65

This is how Villa lined up
Friedel
L.Young Dunne Cuellar Turan
Park Ireland Sidwell Albrighton
Lukaku Kadlec

used subs
Reo Coker
Agbonlahor
Petrov

Boris' words of wisdom
We did well after park scored but the problem was for the goal Cuaellar was probably thinking about how much would he gget for selling his dog when peter odemwingie ran pat him but we looked so positive after Slanty eyes scored we just kept the ball well and delivered

next up for Aston Villa was Trabzonspor in the 4th qualifying round in the Euro cup

View attachment 137359

Aston Villa 2-1 Trabzonspor
Heskey 78, 85 Durmus Dercin 65

same line up as the WBA game with suspended Richard dunne making way for Curtis davies

Boris' words of wisdom

again a shocking start they all looked like they had been out on the lash before they scored but I brought on fat Heskey and he scored two so I am happy as he did well for a fatty

Next up for Boris' men was tough trip to Man city

View attachment 137360

Man City 5-0 Aston Villa
Tevez 3, 14,29,58
Sidwell o.g. 87

Friedel
L.Young Dunne Cuellar Turan
Park Reo Coker Sidwell Bannan
Kadlec heskey

Subs on
Ireland
Agbonlahor
Lukaku

Boris' words of wisdom
We played as bad at football as Gordon Brown would be at chatting up girlsthis Tevez lad ran through us I asked the chairman if I could bid £300m for him but he said we dont have that kind of money I am absolutely Livid at the performancee

Next up was the return leg against trabzonspor with Villa having a 2-1 lead on aggregate but the away goal could prove costly for Villa

View attachment 137363

Trabzonspor 1-3 Aston Villa
Serkan 56 Kadlec 58
Agbonlahor 67
Lukaku 88

this is how they lined up

Friedel
L.Young Dunne Davies Warnock
Park Sidwell Ireland
Agbonlahor Lukaku Kadlec

subs
Albrighton
Turan
Delfouneso

Boris' words of wisdom
Once again we waited until they scored to play well but Kadlec who bear in mind looks like he is just starting puberty had a great game he scored the equalising goal and set up Lukaku to score the clincher in the end but I am baffled that we dont start well at the moment

next up the final game of the month was at home to stoke

View attachment 137361

Aston Villa 2-1 Stoke
Kadlec 36 Fuller 39
Agbonlahor 88

Aston Villa line up

Friedel

Boris' words of wisdom
We played well and hurrah! We scored first but then straight away Richard Dunne goes up to ricardo Fuller and goes here mate were not supposed to start well and gave him the ball and he scored but I am delighted with Gabby's late goal even if he has a girls name

Hahaha, keep it up.

Calling Park slanty eyes is a bit.. distasteful, but with me, that's not a bad thing. XD

They started very well but just couldnt kick the ball in the goal so at half time I showed them a picture on the internet of what a goal looks like and it seemed to work but I am paricularly delighted with Atila Turan as he showed he is becoming a man and had a great mature performance for a 14 year old oops I mean a 18 year old
