Aston Villa's Growing Pains on the Pitch Assessed

Without a win in their first four games back after the Premier League restart, Aston Villa are now starring down both barrels of an instant return to the Championship. After a 1-0 loss to Wolves, we look at Villa's increasing on-field problems.

Can Villa find any bite going forward to threaten their next two opponents - Liverpool and Manchester United - games they surely must get something from, if their relegation rivals begin to pick up points.

We also look at the end of W88 as Villa's main sponsor (and the start, Villa players leaving the club, Liverpool's title win, Neil Warnock's return and a new manager for Northern Ireland in the shape of Ian Baraclough.

In Overrated or Underrated, it's time for Alan Wright and Bosko Balaban to go under the knife.
