Don't know if anyone else has seen this, but just saw on the William Hill website that Aston Villa Reserves beat Arsenal Reserves 10-1? Anyone got any news on this?​

Wenger has nothing to do with the reserves.
Neil Banfield runs it ;)
Eat that Banfield! :D

**** went down to 10 men in the 11th minute apparently. Even better, James Shea scuffed a clearance right into the path of one of our players. :D

How did that come about? A lot of our reserves are playing elsewhere, but that's no excuse.

i wish i knew it was ok to make threads for reserve games lol, we beat Spurs 7-3 last Thursday with the game being abandomed with 10minutes left to play. Sturridge score a hat-rick after 8 minutes and ended with 5 goals. Seems to me the Arsenal reserves arn't too good and the Villa reserves are pretty sound, excellent win.

All our good reserves are out on loan

Either way, complete battering of a win from us. Last season we sent quite a few out on loan (leaving us playing a midfielder at left-back) and it affected our performances. This time the young Villans have stayed home and... well. What a win.

Gardner scored twice, so I guess all those nobheads saying his career was over can shut up. He's a quality, quality player. Nice to see Herdy doing well too. Lowry's a midfielder, apparently, don't know when that happened...

Ironically in the southern sector we're the two strongest sides.

Hardly a bad team, don't understand how we got thrashed :S

We won the reserve league thing a year or two ago.
EDIT - We were top of the league before this game but Villa are equal on points with a better GD, we still have a game in hand over Villa though.

It's probably not helped that main striker Benik Afobe is away plus the captain Miquel is with the first team atm.

i know the reserve league was hugely poor before this season. Im pretty sure they have re-vamped the league this year to make sure they have more important games and its more competitive.

They have.
I think some team complained because like our reserves would only play United reserves if both got to the final and the rest of the time were playing pretty average team. They changed it though so the teams play games against teams from the same division and have some against other divisions teams.
