English Premier League 2011-12: Fixtures of Aston Villa football club

aston villa football clubOften shadowed by the limelight of more popular clubs such as Manchester United football club and Chelsea FC, Aston Villa football club remains one of England’s most prestigious football clubs. It has to its honour the fourth highest number of honours won by an English football club; it has also won the FA cup 7 times and is therefore deservingly one of the most celebrated clubs in England.  The past season was a very dismal one for Aston Villa however, as they finished it at a depressing 13th position with a total of 45 points, the same as those of Newcastle United. For a team that boasts of a very powerful and successful past, such a position is certainly depressing for the players of Aston Villa as well as their fans.  Let’s see what prospects this team has in the upcoming EPL season 2011-2012.

Aston Villa football club is expected to have a peaceful start to the upcoming season with their kickoff match being an away game against Fulham. With both teams quite much on the same footing in terms of their performances in the recently ended season, Aston Villa can attempt to utilize this factor and commence their season with a probable one. August will provide Aston Villa fans with two more fixtures, both of them being home games, one against Blackburn Rovers and the other against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Hence, Aston Villa can effectively use these initial fixtures to secure momentum, ahead of the more threatening games in December.

December will truly be a very challenging month for Aston Villa, as they will kick off the month by a journey to Old Trafford to face this year’s champions Manchester United football club. This fixture will be followed by home games against Arsenal and Liverpool and an away game against Chelsea. Whether Aston Villa can survive the month of December in particular and this season in general remains to be seen. While it is unlikely that they will significantly climb up the ladder to the first five spots, one surely hope they can improve relatively on their last year’s position of 13.
