A last-gasp Loic Remy goal finally brought o an end Newcastle's dreadful recent run of form which had seen them lose four in a row in the league at St. James' Park.

The problem with world soccer games is that there are often times where there are too many excellent matches on at the same time. Which one(s) should we watch?
Today's a perfect example as there are four key matches on at the same time — the Madrid derby, Tottenham Hotspur versus Cardiff, the relegation battle between Swansea and Crystal Palace and, last but not least, Aston Villa versus Norwich City.
We suppose when you go nine games with only one win, and the pressure is on to win a game again, the players can become anxious, and that seemed to be the case last Sunday, when Newcastle did well to go in at the break level at 0-0 with Aston Villa. Alan Pardew - Newcastle [...]

Cardiff City came away from yet another home fixture last night with a solitary point following a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa. Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in early January, the form of the Welsh club has been indifferent at best with defeats coming at Manchester United and fierce rivals Swansea whilst there have been positive results at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Cardiff City striker Craig Bellamy has been suspended for three matches after he accepted a charge by The FA of violent conduct for his behavior in the defeat against Swansea City.
After running up behind Swansea midfielder Jonathan de Guzman, Bellamy punched him in the side of the face. Presumably Bellamy was getting frustrated by his hometown club getting thrashed by Swansea in the South Wales derby.
Loic Remy was back today from his three game suspension, and he managed to get his 12th league goal of the season two minutes into injury time, to give Newcastle a massive lift and a 1-0 win against Aston Villa, in what was only our second win in the last ten games. Yoan Gouffran in [...]

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's honeymoon period is nearing an end and if his Cardiff don't pick up three points soon they could drop into the Championship at the end of the season.
Aston Villa are also in need of three points to stay out of the dreaded drop zone at a very critical time of the season and they should just about pull away from the relegation pack with a win tonight, however with the side leaking goals as if there was no tomorrow anything is possible.
Three points tomorrow at Villa Park for either side would ease their relegation woes more so West Ham who currently occupy the third relegation spot despite a darw with Chelsea and a win against Swansea last weekend.
And although Aston Villa occupy the top half of the league they find themselves just 5 points ahead of tomorrows visitors.
The Reds will look to return to winning ways after a disappointing 1-1 draw away to West Brom last Sunday, where they failed to cement a decent gap between 5th placed Everton.

According to reports, Aston Villa are looking to turn Ryan Bertrand's loan agreement into a permanent transfer this summer. I just wonder if Chelsea will accept this option as they look to fund potential moves themselves.
As much as I like Ryan Bertrand as a person and for his involvement in the greatest night of our history in Munich 19.
It was all over within the space of three minutes at Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon, as two goals from Ryan Flynn and the spectactularly bearded John Brayford with more than a little assistance from a deflection were enough to send the League One club through to an FA Cup Semi-Final match to be played against Hull City of the Premier League at Wembley next month.
Federico Macheda, Manchester United's forgotten man, has claimed that David Moyes has shown nothing of the belief Sir Alex Ferguson had for the 22-year-old striker who is now resigned to leave Old Trafford in the summer, six years on from THAT goal against Aston Villa in April 2009.
Macheda's turn and strike deep into stoppage time sunk Villa and put United on course for a record-equalling 18th title, as they managed to keep a resurgent Liverpool at arm's length thanks, in no small part, to the then teenager late goal against Aston Villa in a 3-2 win and against Sunderland the following week.
Date: Sunday 23rd February 2014. Time: 13:30. Venue: St James' Park. Referee: Martin Atkinson. UK TV: Sky Sports 1.
