Aston Villa vs. Everton CONFIRMED lineups and open thread

Aston Villa vs. Everton CONFIRMED lineups and open thread

Aston Villa travel to Goodison Park today to try and break out of a three-match skid. Here's how Paul Lambert will line up a side missing Fabian Delph. It's a little hard to be quite as optimistic about this match as we were on this week's Holtecast now that we know Aston Villa will be without Fabian Delph. That news also puts a bit of a damper on the coming string of easier matches in the near future, but perhaps that's looking too far forward. Even without Delph, Villa have an excellent chance of getting at least a point from this trip. Roberto Martinez' Everton squad have been letting...

Villa will likely be without Delph for rest of the year

Fabian Delph requires surgery on the shoulder he injured in a freak training ground accident. That means we probably won't see him playing for Aston Villa for the rest of 2014. Last night we brought you the news that Fabian Delph had injured his shoulder in a freak accident at Bodymoor Heath. The one thing we didn't know, at the time, was how bad the injury was. Turns out: it's pretty bad. The Telegraph is reporting that Delph will need surgery on his shoulder and will be out for at least two months. By the time he gets back to match fitness, that probably means that he won't be back in...

Villa midfield rocked by freak injury

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph looks set to miss at least a few weeks following a freak shoulder injury in training. A few times over the course of the summer, writers on this site wrote some variation of "if this club can stay healthy, they actually look pretty good." Unfortunately, every if/then statement is predicated on the successful completion of the "if" portion of things, and it seems as if Aston Villa are determined to not be healthy. Fabian Delph injured his shoulder in a freak training accident that occurred after he had returned from international duty with England. Here's...

Three Lions: Delph, Westwood and Cleverly?

Three Lions: Delph, Westwood and Cleverly?

Paul Lambert backs the Villa triple threat for England. As reported by The Daily Star, Ashley Westwood has backed himself, Fabian Delph and Tom Cleverley to bolster England's midfield. After Delph's debut, there is no reason why Westwood can't follow, considering he has been a real quiet success at Villa. Tom Cleverley has fluttered around the national team in the past and will certainly hope to add to his 13 caps. Westwood highlighted the trio's chemistry as a major positive going forward: 'The three of us have a real good understanding, we get on well and of course that helps' - Ashley...

Aston Villa finally make the contract offer fans were hoping for

Arsenal and Everton are rumored to be in hot pursuit, but Aston Villa are hoping to lock down England international Fabian Delph before he's able to leave the club on a free transfer. Earlier this week, Aston Villa offered a new contract to Jack Grealish, after the 19-year-old impressed early on in the season. As much as Villa fans love Grealish, this wasn't the contract news they'd been waiting for. No, fans weren't going to rest until they knew that the club were in negotiations to make sure that Fabian Delph remained at Villa Park. Good news, then! According to the Daily Mail, Villa...

Delph earns second England call-up, becoming a regular

Delph earns second England call-up, becoming a regular

Fabian Delph has received another call-up from Roy Hodgson to play in next week's Euro qualifiers for England. It's been a while since Aston Villa have had a player that we could regularly count on getting called up for international duty with England, but it seems as if that might be the case again. Fabian Delph has earned his second nod for Roy Hodgson's England squad as they get ready for next week's international break. In their first round of Euro 2016 qualification, England traveled to Switzerland and won 2-0 on the strength of two Danny Welbeck goals. Delph got his first ever...
