 1920-21 Season Notes 

A second successive mid table finish for Villa after the resumption of league football following the Great War, frustrated at finishing behind league interlopers Arsenal there was no fresh FA Cup glory to compensate. The league itself was broadly played on a back to back basis with teams facing one another in the initial fixture and then playing the reverse fixture a few days later. This wasn't a particularly satisfactory arrangement and threw up wide anomalies in results from one fixture to the next as the season failed to lift off.
