A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Aston Villa are currently experiencing a period of transition under the stewardship of Steven Gerrard as they have little to play for in the Premier League.

At the moment, the Villans are occupying the ninth position in the league standings as they find themselves ten points behind eight-placed, Wolverhampton Wanderers with just nine matches left to run this season.

Aston Villa’s Season At A Glance

Aston Villa made a difficult start to this campaign which led to Dean Smith’s sacking back in November last year. However, Gerrard has done well to come in and steady the ship with the Villans now floating in the middle of the Premier League table.

The Villa supporters will be disappointed that their team got knocked out of both the domestic cup competitions which has left them with little to look forward to after this international break.

What Should Aston Villa Boss Steven Gerrard’s Goals Be For This Campaign?

Aston Villa could still make a late push for a European spot. However, for that to happen, they will depend on some of the other teams above them to drop points in the coming weeks.

For now, Gerrard’s primary goal would be to find his best XI and work towards making a strong end to this campaign. The Villans would hope that Ollie Watkins can find some form and also rely on the creativity of John McGinn and Philippe Coutinho to deliver some good results over the next few months.

Other than Premier League football, the West Midlands outfit have nothing left to prove as they are already out of the domestic cup competitions. Still, it would be an interesting time for Gerrard because he will get some freedom to experiment with some of his lineups and formations while having less pressure on his shoulders to deliver victories on the pitch.

The Villans have got two exciting league clashes coming up versus Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur respectively. If they win those games, it could put them back in contention for a European spot and hopefully, a fruitful end to this league season.
