Aston Villa once again fell to defeat this weekend as Sheffield Wednesday rolled into Villa Park to take all three points.
The pressure is continuing to build on manager Steve Bruce, and despite being rescued over the summer in terms of off the field problems and money to bring in new signings, it looks like being a bleak old season for Bruce and his squad.
One of the summer signings which caused quite the stir was the addition of Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham, a young striker who was well courted by a host of clubs throughout the summer.
However, it was Villa who got their man, and we here at the Tavern think that this season could really turn into make or break for the youngster.
Abraham has thus far in his career only showed consistent goalscoering form during one spell, that being his time with Bristol City two seasons ago when he smashed in 25 goals for the Robins and earnt himself a move to then Premier League Swansea the season after.
However, his form for the Swans was patchy to say the least, and despite getting off the mark already for the Villans, the pressure will be on the Chelsea man to find his form.
A poor season for Villa will see the doubters come out in force over his talent, while a good showing might well force him into the reckoning for Blues manager Maurizio Sarri.
Either way, this season is set to be a huge one for Abraham, as he looks to cement himself as one of the best up and coming talents in the country.
Villa fans, do you agree? Is Abraham going to produce the goods for you this term? Let us know your thoughts!
