FIVE FAVOURITE VILLA MOMENTS OF 2015
5. Grealish Goal
Villa’s capitulation against Leicester City towards the start of this season probably did a lot of damage to the team’s confidence. After playing well and scoring two good goals, the fact we still lost was a harrowing insight into the defensive fragilities that have plagued Villa over the past few seasons.
Grealish’s goal against the Foxes had been a long time coming, building on the good performances the academy product had shown under Tim Sherwood, and was also a welcome distraction from the summer’s media spotlight on Jack Grealish’s trip to Tenerife.
It’s still a source of frustration for Villa fans that we threw the lead today, but I bet most celebrated that goal more than they normally would.
