 1932-33 Season Review  

A stunning start to the season with 1 defeat in 15 and 10 wins was tempered by sporadic losses from February 1933 onwards.

As a result ​Villa hit just the 96 league and cup goals and thereby missed out on a 5th successive 100+ goal season and 8th overall.

 

Villa did however finish runners up in the league for the second time in the last 3 seasons and had now placed top 10 finishes for the 8th consecutive season with finishes of 6th, 10th, 8th, 3rd, 4th, 2nd, 5th and 2nd,
