On Saturday afternoon, Aston Villa travelled to the Broadfield Stadium to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the final away match of the season, fresh from the announcement of Carla Ward’s exit.  Villa have a positive record away at Brighton, and were boosted by the returns of Anna Leat and Rachel Corsie from suspension and Lucy Parker from a long-term ankle injury, Corsie and Parker making the bench. Ward opted for Alisha Lehmann over Adriana Leon, perhaps due to her goal last weekend against West Ham Head of WSL Content: Georgia Homer Brighton opened the afternoon looking to keep hold ..read more

WSL POST-MATCH REVIEW | ASTON VILLA 1-1 WEST HAM UNITED

Aston Villa returned to Villa Park for our penultimate home game of the season to face West Ham. 11 days after the defeat to Chelsea, which featured Anna Leat’s early red card, Carla Ward’s side look to end the season on a high. West Ham have a significant gap ahead of bottom-placed Bristol City, but with the opportunity to confirm their league safety, Villa could expect another challenge.  17 year old Sophia Poor made her full debut in goal, after her surprise performance last week. Leat faces a one game suspension, so Villa were without a goalkeeper on the bench. Rachel Corsie also face ..read more

Having defeated Ajax, a team Villa had only played once before, the European Conference League campaign continues apace in April with a Quarter Final tie against OSC Lille. Villa have also played Lille before, although not significantly more than the vanquished Dutch giants. The teams have faced off twice previously – both as part of a two-legged Intertoto Cup tie in August of 2002. This is the story of those summer meetings. Words by: Ivan McDouall Aston Villa’s 2001-2002 season had been an odd one. John Gregory had resigned in January 2002, a decision that was a surprise even given a fairly ..read more

WSL POST-MATCH REVIEW | EVERTON 1-2 ASTON VILLA
UTV Podcast
by Georgia Homer

Aston Villa started the weekend in 8th place in the WSL, all but safe from relegation and looking ahead towards a much sought after 6th place finish. Carla Ward was handed fresh injury concerns when Daphne van Domselaar and Kirsty Hanson were announced to be sidelined earlier in the week, adding to the existing list.  Dan Turner kept her spot in the back four after returning to the team against Arsenal, and Ebony Salmon was trusted to start in attack. Adriana Leon was straight back into the starting lineup following her Gold Cup campaign with Canada, where she was the top scorer. Lehmann ..read more

The Choice: Ajax Rewind, CSKA & Competing Priorities
UTV Podcast
by Ivan McDouall
4M ago
Ever since the FA Cup Replay defeat to Chelsea, Aston Villa podcasts, X feeds and phone ins have debated a seemingly key issue or ‘choice’ – whether the club should be more focussed on achieving Champions League qualification or trying to win the Europa Conference League. It says a lot about a well engrained wariness amongst the Villa public that there is a perception that the 2023/24 season will distil down to this choice. The idea of ‘a choice’ also gives lie to the progress – and crucially consistency – made and found under Unai Emery. Words by: Ivan McDouall A simplified version ..read more

WSL POST-MATCH REVIEW | ASTON VILLA 1-4 LIVERPOOL

Earlier this week, we found out that Carla Ward and Jordan Nobbs had been nominated for February’s manager and player of the month awards. We have also seen Rachel Daly, Adriana Leon, and Simone Magill scoring on international duty. The mood around Aston Villa has been positive, but today’s return to league action saw us without Daly and Leon, Daly still serving her suspension and Leon qualifying for the semi-final of the Gold Cup with Canada.  Ward chose Magill to play up front, supported by Hanson and Lehmann. Nobbs and Corsie joined Dali in midfield, and Maritz played at centre-half in ..read more

After last week’s penalties heroics in the Conti Cup, Aston Villa returned to the WSL with an away fixture against Tottenham Hotspur. Carla Ward was restricted by another notable absentee in Rachel Daly through suspension and Kenza Dali was limited to the bench due to injury. Jordan Nobbs started again in midfield and Simone Magill led the line.  Villa started with a couple of promising attacks, down the right wing in particular. Alisha Lehmann reached the byline but her cutbacks could not reach the right players, and soon Anna Patten was called into action to make a crucial tackle at the ..read more

With the events of the January transfer window now behind us, Villa can look towards the second half of the season and aim to finish as well as possible following a difficult start. Things will be made harder by the loss of Laura Blindkilde to Manchester City and Lucy Staniforth to an ankle injury, but Villa fans were treated to a deadline day announcement of Miri Taylor to join us on loan.  Saturday afternoon saw bottom-place Bristol City join us at the Bescot Stadium, with a couple of familiar faces in Emily Syme and Shania Hayles amongst the visitors. Carla Ward was forced to play Noel ..read more

Tensions were high when Aston Villa travelled to Leigh Sports Village to face Manchester United in the WSL. The events of this week’s Conti Cup fixtures leaves the quarter-final draw in the balance, with Villa, United, and Sunderland all waiting to hear their fates, after Villa fielded an ineligible player. Outside of the controversy, Villa have found confidence in the Conti Cup and planned to bring that momentum into today’s match. Ward selected Maritz and Mayling at fullback positions, and Lehmann over Hanson on the wing. Lucy Staniforth was missing from the squad, presumably with a late inj ..read more
