“Goosebumps”, “Hairs stood up” – Lots of AVFC fans discuss key moment from 2018/19 season

Ahead of their game against Sheffield United, Aston Villa have posted a video on their official Twitter page about their last encounter.

Having gone 3-0 down against the Blades, goals from Tyrone Mings and Tammy Abraham in the 82nd and 84th minute respectively had got Villa back within touching distance of earning a precious point.

Then, in the 94th minute, Andre Green got his head onto a cross to the back post from John McGinn, guiding it past Dean Henderson to complete the comeback.

Plenty of fans loved reminiscing about the game and were keen to tell Green how much they still appreciate his equaliser.

To show how much it meant, one fan even suggested: “I still say that goal made my son start loving the Villa”.

That may have been his only Villa goal of the campaign, but he made sure it was a memorable one.

The video has even inspired some supporters to call for the 21-year-old to be recalled from his loan spell at Preston North End.

So far, he has managed just four substitute appearances in the league, totalling a combined 87 minutes, though he has scored in one of his two Carabao Cup appearances.

There have even been some fans who have got a hashtag going, demanding to “free” the winger from his nightmare spell.

In other news, FFC writers have given their views on Villa’s proposed January move for a winger.
