 1952-53 Season Review 

It was a chastening start to the season, 3 defeats in 4 home games, conceding 11 in 3 consecutive losses, and just 2 wins in 10.

Once again a season under George Martin saw Villa unbeaten in 6, then unable to win in 6 with such regular consistency it seemed intentional. Strong wins 3-0, were followed by losses of 1-5, 0-4, 4-1 by 0-3, 6-0 and 4-0 by 1-4 and 1-5,

 

Martin's Villa though had got enough points on the board despite the setbacks to enable the team to finish 11th and safe to come back for 1953-54.

 

Villa did also manage to make is past the 4th Round of the FA Cup for the first time in 7 seasons and reached their first quarter final since the 1945-46 season.

 1952-53 Managerial Record 

George Martin's Villa reached their first FA Cup Quarter Final in 8 years but fell back to 11th in the league.

Martin’s Villa had now achieved a win rate of 39%, losing 35% of their 115 League and FA Cup matches under his leadership.

As a result George Martin had returned 1.43 points per game* across his 114 games in charge of Villa. That placed Martin ahead of only Villa’s first professional manager Jimmy McMullan (1.24 in 99) and behind the performances of his predecessors Alex Massie (1.56 in 227) Jimmy Hogan (1.59 in 124) and behind George Ramsay’s 1.69 across his 1,332 games and Billy Smith’s 1.62 across 364 games. 

*Rankings based on 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw in all competitions
