Aston Villa Are So Terrible They’ve Scrapped Their Player of the Year Awards

Aston Villa’s season has been so pitiful that the club has cancelled its annual Player of the Year awards, adding salt into the wounds as they prepare to sink into the Championship following their inevitable relegation. 

The Midlands club have managed to win a woeful 3 games out of 33 played, racking 23 losses and 7 draws with only 16 points to the name. This puts them at the very bottom of the Premier League table, sitting 9 points behind Newcastle who are stuck in 19th place. 

This has led the powers that be at the club to cancel the annual awards ceremony, with a statement reading: “The club will not be holding its annual Player of the Year Awards at the conclusion of this season. In the current circumstances, we are sure our supporters will understand.” The online voting that was available to supporters of the club has also been cancelled as a result of this decision.

Villa’s season has been branded one of the worst ever by a top-flight English team, with their relegation potentially being confirmed on Saturday if Norwich manage to eke out either a draw or a victory against Sunderland at home. However, even if this isn’t to be the case it would still require a miraculous turn of events in order for Villa to avoid sinking into the lower league, with the squad set to play against Manchester United on the same day.
