How Long Since Villa Won 8 Games On The Bounce?

How Long Since Villa Won 8 Games On The Bounce?


Over four decades since we managed eight wins in a row. Can we do it again this weekend against Fulham?

I think this is accurate, done by deanovilla. We aren`t club historians so I`m sure we will get corrected if wrong. But gives us another nice record to aim for now we`ve equalled Graham Taylors seven on the trot run 28 years ago.

Deanovilla says:

Last time we won 8 in a row was under Ron Saunders in the 1974/75 season where we won all of our last 8 games to help us finish 2nd in the Division 2 table, 3 points behind winners Manchester United. We actually won 10 out of the last 11, the only blip being a 1-0 defeat away at Leyton Orient.

Sat Mar 29 Division 2 West Bromwich Albion Home Won 3-1 (Hamilton, Leonard(2)

Tue Apr 1 Division 2 Millwall Away Won 3-1 (Hamilton, Leonard, Little)

Wed Apr 9 Division 2 Cardiff City Home Won 2-0 (Little(2)

Sat Apr 12 Division 2 Oldham Athletic Home Won 5-0 (Little(3), Hamilton, Own Goal)

Sat Apr 19 Division 2 Blackpool Away Won 3-0 (Little, Phillips, Own Goal)

Wed Apr 23 Division 2 Sheffield Wednesday Away Won 4-0 (Little(2), Leonard, Ross)

Sat Apr 26 Division 2 Sunderland Home Won 2-0 (Little, Ross)

Wed Apr 30 Division 2 Norwich City Away Won 4-1 (Gidman, McDonald, Leonard, Carrodus)

10 goals in 8 games for Sir Brian of Little. Legend! He actually only got another 10 goals in the other 34 games to give him a total of 20 for the season, but that was enough for him to finish as the leagues top goal-scorer that year!

Confidence is high though, but I do think this one is the sort of game that, although obviously the win would be fabulous, it wouldn't be that disappointing to draw

I think this could be our first loss in a long while, Fulham are a good side, however, getting another run together will be the next challenge after, I hope I am wrong on the first count...I'm a natural pessimist by the way!

I only missed one of those matches back in 74/75... Millwall away unsurprisingly... Be brilliant to better that run in 2017/18..Fulham away is seriously tough, but we ARE capable of beating anyone in this division on our day

That was a good run wasn't it. Can we do it? Would be fantastic if we could but it'll be tough at Fulham.

Play as well as we have been and we've certainly got a good chance at Fulham, need to be on the front foot, take our chances, we have come from behind to grab 2nd place lets not mess it up now.
