Who scored Villa's goal in their 1-0 win against Stoke City on the opening day of the 2014/15 Premier League season?

In the interview, Elphick reveals that Tony Xia lured him to his office with a promise of a present only to reveal that he wanted to sack then-Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Villa fans who were quick to share their thoughts on Elphick.

Here’s a sample of Villa fans responding to the post:

Did Villa make a mistake letting Elphick leave the club?





The Englishman first signed to the club back in 2016 from Bournemouth but after numerous loan deals, Elphick finally left the club on a free transfer to Huddersfield Town last summer (per Transfermarkt).

Now that Elphick shared this revelation surrounding his meeting with Xia, it certainly shocked a number of Villa fans.

What do we think?

These Villa fans certainly have fond memories of Elphick and his time at Villa. As for his strange meeting with Xia, it comes as no surprise that these Villa fans found it odd.
