Villa Lead The Way In The Prem

Villa Lead The Way In The Prem

Villa Lead the way in the Premiership!

As we all know, Villa have been doing wonders under Martin O'Neill, this year, but it is not only down to him. It is also the players putting in the effort on the pitch. So to reflect this effort, I thought I'd share this bit of information - 3 Villa players are in the Top 10 so far this season according to the OPTA Stats Index - and this is the most of any team in the Premiership.

1 Andy Johnson Everton 172
2 Didier Drogba Chelsea 160
3 Gareth Barry Aston Villa 134
4 Gabriel Agbonlahor Aston Villa 132
5 Ashley Young Watford 132
6 Kanu Portsmouth 131
7 Frank Lampard Chelsea 130
8 Ivan Campo Bolton Wanderers 129
9 Liam Ridgewell Aston Villa 128
10 Gary Speed Bolton Wanderers 125

Congratulations must therefore be awarded to Gareth, Gabby, and Liam, and an honourable mention must also go to Olof Mellberg, who lies 16th overall. A sterling effort lads and lets keep up the good work until May!!!

If 3 of our players are in the top ten and we are 6th in the league, what are all the other players doing?

The 2 best things that have happened to Villa are that muppet O.Leary leaving and O'Neill coming.
