 1911-12 Season Notes 

Having finished Champions and Runners Up over the previous two seasons, Villa fell back to a sixth place finish in 1911-12. Villa's 17 league wins compared very unfavourably with the 45 they had achieved over the previous two campaigns yet their goal return of 76 was only 8 shy of the total of their title season and 7 better than the previous campaign. Still Villa finished a full 10 points lower than their runners up season and once again failed to get past the second round of the FA Cup.
