MATCH TIMELINE

ON THIS DAY

Villa end a remarkable season as runners up for the second successive season but that barely begins to tell the story as their worst ever start to a League campaign and a poor first four months saw Villa lose with a frequency rarely seen. New Year 1914 however saw an astonishing turnaround in form with eleven consecutive victories in an unbeaten run of fourteen before the final eight games brought five defeats to leave Villa seven points behind eventual champions Blackburn.
