If Aston Villa fans thought that they would never witness their team put in another performance as bad as the one against Swansea last weekend, they were sorely and sadly mistaken.
Dean Smith made a number of changes to the team that was dismantled 3-0 by the Swans in the FA Cup, but it made not a jot of difference as they still put in another shocking Sunday League display and were easily beaten 3-0 by Wigan.
What makes this defeat even more embarrassing is the fact that Wigan are currently in a relegation battle and hadn’t won a match since the end of November. However, during the game, you would have been forgiven for thinking that it was Wigan with their eye on a play-off spot and Villa who are looking over their shoulders.
Around 4,500 Villa fans traveled up to Wigan to watch that complete and utter dross, and every single one of them should be given their money back. I even feel like I deserve some form of compensation, and I watched it for free.
