 1999-00 Season Review 

Villa once again shot to the higher reaches of the table early in the season and sat 2nd after the opening 3 games but defeat to a side who were becoming a bit of a bogey - Chelsea - knocked Villa off their stride before a run of 5 wins in 6.  

Yet despite a magnificent mauling of Manchester United in the League Cup, Villa had embarked upon another win starved run of 6 games, losing 4 which say them drop to 13th in the table before the season nadir of 15th following a home defeat to Newcastle.

Almost immediately, and far too quickly, there came question marks over Gregory's with the pundits sent wild with rumours of his imminent demise. 

They hadn't counted on Gregory's motivational skills however and had taken his admitted unorthodoxy as a weakness rather than a strength but he responded with just 2 league losses in the next 32 league and cup games to take Villa to 6th place in the Premier League, an FA Cup final and a League Cup semi.

Sadly the FA Cup final - Villa's first since 1957 - didn't work out as once again Chelsea, now becoming a regular thorn in Villa's side in recent seasons, won a tight game through a goalkeeping error.

Despite the setback, the reign of Gregory was nothing if not eventful on and off the pitch.

 1999-00 Managerial Record 

John Gregory achieved a second successive 6th place finish as well as runs to the final of the FA Cup and Semis of the League Cup.

Gregory’s Villa had now achieved a win rate of 48%, losing 23% of their 110 League and Cup matches under his leadership.

As a result Gregory had returned 1.74 points per game* across his 110 games in charge of Villa. In doing so Gregory was ahead of all his predecessors including even George Ramsay’s performance of 1.69 across his remarkable 1,332 games.

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