Off The Ball: Tim Sherwood has put life back into Villa after near-death experience
In an early episode of 'The Sopranos', Tony is so depressed that he's virtually slipped into a comatose state when two hitmen attempt to shoot him, and, suddenly, he's jolted into life for the first time in days. It took an actual brush with death to snap him out of his funk.
That's been my experience as an Aston Villa fan this season.
Fair enough, being a Villa fan isn't quite as serious a problem as being a fictional mafia boss fighting depression and getting shot, but it certainly has its similarities.
