Watford defeated Aston Villa 3-2 at Vicarage Road.
Former player Ian Talor took to social networking site Twitter to share a comment on Aston Villa’s cruel 3-2 defeat against Premier League opponents Watford at Vicarage Road.
Despite having known their fate for some time, Villa put in a spirited performance against the Hornets and the type of display which supporters can feel proud of after a disastrous campaign at Villa Park.
The whole club has under-performed on numerous levels, and relegation to the Championship was only made worse when defender Joleon Lescott described it as a weight off the players’ shoulders.
Yet against Watford they showed heart for long spells, only to be cruelly denied their first victory on the road since the opening day win at Bournemouth by a late Troy Deeney double.
The Birmingham City supporter showed little sympathy for visitors as he equalised on 90 minutes and found a winner two minutes later, prompting Taylor to suggest how it pretty much sums up Villa’s campaign.
There were postives to take for Villa’s caretaker boss Eric Black, what with goal scorers Cieran Clark and Jordan Ayew putting in some decent performances and Idrissa Gueye battling in the middle.
However, the writing was seemingly on the wall the moment Aly Cissokho was dismissed for two bookable offences during the second period and Deeney’s strikes were somewhat inevitable.
The Villa fans packed behind the goal have become all-too familiar with heartache this season, yet they deserve plenty of recognition as they once again travelled down and did their club proud.
