Before today, you may have heard something about the fact that it had been an awfully long time since Aston Villa last scored a goal.

For context, they went longer without a goal than the time it would take to watch Claude Lanzmann’s acclaimed holocaust documentary Shoah.  We’re talking ages here.

This afternoon, against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, a team they seem to quite relish facing, Villa lost 2-1 but did actually score a goal. One can only assume the patronising arrow signs visible in the picture at the top of the page were a huge part of the reason why. The best part is the one pointing at the person texting rather than watching her team as the corner is swung in.
