Aston Villa 2016-17 player preview: Mark Bunn

Mark Bunn is a perfectly capable backup. Nothing more, nothing less. With Brad Guzan finally out of the picture, last year’s presumptive third-choice keeper (who became the second-choice [and later became first-choice for a time]) can FINALLY take on the role as Aston Villa’s shot stopper. This is going to be Mark Bunn’s year. The most handsome Villan is going to use that rock-hard body to do nothing but stop shots. Oh. Wait. We signed someone else. And kept Jed Steer around this time. Sorry, Mark, back to backup duty for you. BUT, if Aston Villa have Mark Bunn as a backup, all is...

Aston Villa 2016-17 player preview: Leandro Bacuna

It's the last chance saloon for Leo. Leandro Bacuna wants to be playing Champions League football this season, but instead, his challenge will be far greater: trying to win round the Villa Park faithful. During a season in which Aston Villa were awful, Bacuna came under more criticism than most, and unlike Micah Richards and Brad Guzan, his crimes took place off the pitch. Though he looked indifferent at times, his performances weren't nearly as bad as that now infamous quote that he made to Dutch TV. That was last season though, and now Bacuna has the chance to start afresh. A versatile...

Aston Villa 2016-17 player previews: Can this squad make a dent in the Championship?

We're previewing all of Aston Villa's players in the hours before the season's kickoff. Aston Villa's latest goalkeeper is a bit of an enigma. On paper, he doesn't nearly have the skills of the departed Brad Guzan and it's possible Jed Steer or Mark Bunn could offer a bit more discipline, leadership and experience at the back. But Gollini is... Well, Pierluigi Gollini. The latest in a long line of Italian goalkeeping aristocracy which is currently headed by none other than Gianluigi Buffon. Now, the true heir to Buffon's throne is Milan's Gianluigi Donarumma and for good reason. 'Gigou'...

Aston Villa 2016-17 player preview: Pierluigi Gollini

Villa’s new keeper has a big year ahead... Aston Villa's latest goalkeeper is a bit of an enigma. On paper, he doesn't nearly have the skills of the departed Brad Guzan and it's possible Jed Steer or Mark Bunn could offer a bit more discipline, leadership and experience at the back.

Now, the true heir to Buffon's throne is Milan's Gianluigi Donarumma and for good reason. 'Gigou' as Milan fans call him, is a lanky,...

Aston Villa’s Brad Guzan makes his Premier League return

Aston Villa’s American Goalkeeper has today left the club to join up with Premier League newcomers Middlesbrough. This follows news of a medical at the Teeside club.
