MATCH TIMELINE

ON THIS DAY

Villa lose for the second successive game to end the season with eight goals conceded and none scored. In consequence Villa had recorded fourteen wins, thirteen draws and fifteen defeats in forty two division one games under Jimmy McMullan in his first season in charge as Villa finished 13th.

Although that was the same finishing position as the previous year under Secretary Manager Billy Smith, McMullanโ€™s season had been significantly worse, conceding four or more goals on no less than eight occasions, losing four consecutive games for the first time since 1927 and generally overseeing inconsistent and at times hapless performances.

That this was done with largely the same squad as had served under Smith simply underlined the concerns that either McMullan wasnโ€™t the right choice for Villaโ€™s first manager or that the structure itself wasnโ€™t the right one.
