Aston Villa Betting
Aston Villa are one of the biggest clubs in England and have a big following after some good performances in the last couple of years with Martin O Neill in charge. O'Neill had steadily improved the on pitch fortunes of Villa since taking over but is shock move just 5 days before the start of the new season O'Neill shocked the club by resigning from his post with immiediate effect. A month later he was replaced with former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier
They are regular qualifiers for European competitions which means they also attract a big amount of money wagered on them from punters.
The Premier League Odds are the most popular market for Aston Villa fans as they lie just outside the top five in the betting after a good finish last season. Aston Villa are likely to miss out in the chase for the title but will be expected to perform well in the Cup competitions and the FA Cup Betting features Villa heavily.
In August 2010 Villa sold James Milner for Â£26 million to Manchester City and this is on top of selling their former Captain Gareth Barry when he was transferred to the fellow title contenders for Â£12 million. So far Houllier has not made any signings but seems content with the players that he has inherited which include Stephen Ireland who came as part of the Milner deal and the resigning of keeper Andy Marshall.
It will be interested to see how Aston Villa cope without Milner in the 2010/11 season.
