Grealish Inspires, Bruce Sent Packing & Facial Recognition Threat

It was a vital win for Aston Villa against Newcastle United at Villa Park. Villa's Head Coach Dean Smith's reward was a new four-year contract for dispatching his predecessor Steve Bruce. After three defeats, the three points will give the club a lift going into a tough month of fixtures.

Meanwhile, while there was good news for football supporters on the prospect of standing returning to English football's top tiers, there was whiff of a threat to Premier League supporter's civil liberties. In other news, what's this bizarre twist to former Villa player, Jlloyd Samuel's tragic story?

As well as taking a look at Villa's recent happenings on the pitch, including Jack Grealish's return and Conor Hourihane's heroics, there's an epic Scott Hogan Touch Challenge and a Mad Few Hotline call to the Dubai Lions.
