Aston Villa 2-0 Wigan Athletic – Premier League – 1st October 2011

Fleet-footed attacker Gabriel Agbonlahor must surely be in line for a recall to the England squad after another superb and speedy performance on Saturday.

Wigan had no answer to the forward’s pace, with Agbonlahor scoring one and providing the assist for the second (converted by Darren Bent).

While the Villans remain unbeaten in the Premier League, Roberto Martinez’ Latics have now lost five in a row in all competitions. As affable as the Spaniard is, and as admirable his footballing philosophy remains, surely time is running out for the Wigan boss.

    Are you going to keep on doing this for every game of the season??
    It is ok for big games like Man Utd. – Man City, Tottenham – Arsenal and the like but pics and reports about Bolton losing 1-0 to Sunderland, WBA drawing 2-2 with Fulham and Swansea beating Norwich 4-0 are irrelevant for all but fans of those clubs and even they probably have found the info elsewhere.

    I don’t care for the glory hunter clubs, If I want to read a story or eye some pix then I will click the link. If you don’t want to, DON’T. You whine more than a Villan

    Pipe down Jones. I can read about Man Utd, Man City, Tottenham and Arsenal just about anywhere else.

    Please keep going with these reports pies. Top stuff.

    …oh, and pies, remember how you said Villa will be crap this season?
