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.
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.

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!
