Villa v Spurs Head To Head


forum

Last Matches

Burnley v VILLA

Burnley took an early lead through Steven Caldwell in the 9th minute and managed to hold the original Claret & Blue’s at bay until Emile Heskey popped up in the 86th with a headed equaliser. (Not kidding).

TOTTENHAM v Wigan

If you don’t know what happened here... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??
Spurs really put Wigan to the sword and knocked 8, yes count them, 8 goals past a hapless Wigan side in just 45 second half minutes. Having took a 1-0 lead into half time, Spurs, particularly Defoe, came out fighting with the England World Cup hopeful knocking in 5 goals with his 7-minute hat trick knocking Agbonlahor from 2nd place in the quickest Premier League trebles. – Must be said… Wigan were awful!


Highest Possible League Standing

Villa: 4th: With Tottenham 3 points ahead, only a 4-goal victory will be enough to dislodge Spurs following their massive boost to goal difference, so realistically we'd remain 5th equal on points with Spurs.

Spurs: 2nd: Would depend on Arsenal losing to Chelsea, which is more than possible, and Manchester United losing to Portsmouth, which is lets face it, is a LOT less likely.

Prediction

Four of the last five meetings between these two teams have ended 2-1 with the only exception being that memorable 4-4 draw. Goals are pretty much guaranteed with there being only 10 0-0 draws in all 156 previous meetings in all competitions.

Villa are looking very strong at home this season and have still maintained the impressive record of scoring in every game since that woeful loss to Wigan on the opening day of the season. Add to that the scalp of Chelsea, the draw against Manchester City and the win at Liverpool and Martin O’Neill’s men are really proving to big game players.

Tottenham on the other hand, their record against three of the big four reads 3-0 loss to Arsenal, 3-1 loss to Manchester United & a 3-0 loss to Chelsea. Not good. To be fair they have beaten Liverpool… But who hasn’t this season?

Harry Redknapp will have his team fired up following the demolition of Wigan, and rightly so. They are a threat with goal scorers such as Defoe, Keane & Crouch but just because you get a hat-full one-week doesn’t mean you will the next. (See Villa 5-1 Bolton then Burnley 1-1 Villa).

My Prediction: Aston Villa 2-1 Tottenham Hotspurs

Sorry to burst your bubble but to go 4th you'd have to beat us by SEVEN! We have plus 14 goal difference and you have plus 8! I have a funny feeling we'll see a score draw on saturday, maybe 2-2 as we both like to score at the moment! It could be a belter if we both go for it!! COYS!!

Jabberyid you muppet. If we win by 3 goals then you're goal difference will go down to +11, ours will go up to +11. If you lose by 3 goals your goal difference doesn't stay the same :P To be fair I think we'd need to win by 4 because you have scored more still, that's how it works when the difference is the same isn't it?

jabberyid - easy mistake to make, but your still a donut. I've got a lot of mates who are spurs fans down here in the southwest, so there's always a lot of pride riding on this fixture for me. I was pretty confident about this fixture until the yids tore wigan a new bum trumpet. I'm counting on the spurs squad to be weighed down and off-balance on account of their big heads from Sunday's match. I can also see them taking our attacking threat for granted, which means we can keep catching them on the break for a 4-2 thumping. For me please Villa.

Hands up! Fair enough, i got that wrong! I don't hate Villa, why would i hate a team from Birmingham! Why do so many people HATE Spurs! I know we have a few knuckle head supporters, but we ain't that bad! All the London clubs hate us as well, not that i give too s h i t s about any london club apart from the mighty yids! So johnmurphy3112, did you hate Wet Spam, Southampton and Pompey too?

My theory has always been the mutual dislike stems from both clubs being very similar and both sets if fans being very insecure and defensive about their flagging stature in the game

Jabberyid - He pocketed that 50p that Villa fan misplaced.....only kidding I dont condone that behaviour. He just grinds my gears, plus he's bad mouthed the Villa fans in the past so hey ho! And Ellis was a twunt we are in agreement on that. UTV

I've got to agree with some of the comments on here about Redknapp. He ought to keep his trap shut more often. No wonder the players are running off at the mouth like demented parrots every 5 minutes; 'top 4! top 4! top 4!'. Tough one to call this, but if Huddlestone and Kranjcar put the same amount of effort in as last week, I can't see Villa coping with our midfield. Tottenham to sneak it.

Even Heskey would score against Titus Bramble and co. but Krancjar could well be the diffenence at the weekend as we are still a decent player short in midfield. Our defence is miles better than Spuz though. Can't see Defoe getting a look in. Hope 'Arry stays sat down and keeps his thoughts and gestures to himself this time, like the second hand wii salesman that he is.

Villan444, i agree that your defence is better than ours but not miles better. We have 4 very good center halfs in King,Woodgate, Bassong and Dawson. We have 2 solid full backs in Corluka and Ekkoto who has become a brilliant player and Hutton and Bale are not bad covers. Other than that we also have Naughton who is a bright talent for the future. So i disagree that your defence is miles better than ours.

and it is funny how you say that "Even Heskey would score against Titus Bramble and co.". Correct me if i am wrong but didn't Heskey and the other villa payers get the chance to score bucket loads against wigan at home and you lost 2-0.

got to be honest, I don't really give a flying f*** about the goal difference unless it is the last day of the season for a final placing, but have amended to 4... too busy today to give a care.. just want the win ! :o)))

Good article and i agree with Phartmans comment about the status of our clubs. Personally ive always liked Villa and i think your physical pacey and solid style will be too much for us on Saturday. I think 2-1, 3-1 Villa may happen. But if te real Spurs turn up it could be anything. I said earlier 1-0 Villa Collins header would be just so typical of Spurs (and Villa lol) Should be a good game anyways fellas.

Indian Yid, I'll always disagree with Dawson being described as "very good". Remember a couple seasons back when he was all over Mellberg on each setpiece, and Olof still managed to score :) But yeah, King and Bassong are tight. I cannot wait for this game. So many Spurs fans down here in Cambridge and it will (hopefully) be very nice to bring them back down to earth Saturday. UTV.

Even "very good" players have off days particularly when young. But he's turned himslef into a very consistent performer these days, granted he's no Vidic but there certainly isn't a better 4th choice centre back in the league. (Obviously I'm using "certainly" in the laziest possible sense, pedants go home)

Jobbyid, the reason I hate Spurs Is mainly Arry Redface, he's gobs off constantly about how good spurs are! how the champs league spot is theirs, who they are buying this week, how they are better than Arsenal. Spurs-like Villa have not had much success over the last 20years, Twitchy should wait til he has acheived something before gobbing off and it is dis-respectful to talk about other teams players, he does constantly (Ashley Young for instance) Spuds are not better than Arsenal and are not good enough for champs league or even europe. They remind me of Leeds just before the went bust.

I think it's a bit arrogant to say it's going to be an easy win for Villa. As much as some people dislike Old Wax Face you have to respect the guy. He's a top manager and he's really put together a good Spurs team. They're basically London's version of us. We might even see them in Claret & Blue next :) I heard somewhere if you combine the points he gained at Pompey and Spurs last year then he would've finished 3rd?? Not sure how true that is. Either way, if Villa don't break the top four I hope it's them. Anyone one would be better than Liverpool and Arsenal. My god, I hate them.

Every time i bet on the Villa we always lose so although it will break my heart to do so i am going to put 10 squid on the Spuds this should guarantee us a win . I don't hate most spurs just the ones who subscribe to the "were a bigger club than you" bull**** . You seem to get that from Spuds more than anybody else .

That's not a bad policy doug4ever. I put a fiver on every Villa game for us to lose 2-1. When I back us to win we always lose so when we do there's always a pick-me-up. Those defeats to Blackburn and West Ham turned into little earners.
