Mile Jedinak praised for 'immense' performance for Aston Villa

Share

It was the flawless weekend for Aston Villa.

The Villa fan let it all bounce off of him, though, as he put in a sublime performance and rose above the potential chaos that could have consumed him.

The match was decided by two second-half goals, the second of which was a moment of brilliant and rather unexpected individual quality from Conor Hourihane which will be remembered long after the remainder of an often unexceptional contest is forgotten.

It was just one of many as she became the first human being to be infected by the type of eye worm that is only found in cattle. Worm larvae in tears get sucked into the fly's intestines, where they grow and go through two molts.

It was another immensely satisfying afternoon for Aston Villa on Sunday as they beat rivals Birmingham City 2-0 in the Second City Derby to climb to second in the Championship table.

Villa's second was less cleverly created but more memorably finished: Terry's free-kick from inside his own half was headed out to Hourihane, who chested down and from 25 yards hit a dipping half-volley over Stockdale and into the net.

A mass brawl erupted and N'Doye was given a second yellow card and sent off for the incident with just 30 seconds of the game left to go.

Steve Bruce's side must surely now be favourites to remain in the top two and clinch promotion back to the Premier League.

Jedinak was the only change for Villa, who were searching for their seventh-straight league win - what would be their best streak in 28 years. While most presumed the Terry would end his career this summer.

Terry, the Aston Villa captain, has chose to delay his next move until the end of the season as he focuses on helping guide Steve Bruce's team back to the Premier League.

Willy Wonka remake fit for a King!
Without exaggeration: King's whimsical, cheeky, good-hearted style is note-perfect for a Chocolate Factory movie. Things can only go up for the director, and it looks like Willy Wonka could be his golden ticket to more success.

The thought that John Terry could play for Aston Villa against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge is on.
