Newcastle United boss John Carver wants to see Aston Villa relegated. Carver was a supporter in 2009 when a 1-0 defeat at Villa Park saw Alan Shearer's side drop to the second tier for the first time in 17 years, much to the delight of a gloating home crowd.
He said: "How they reacted to the way we got relegated wasn't nice and it could spur our fans on.
"I never spoke to anyone for an hour after the final whistle went that day. That really hurt me. Sometimes when you come up against Aston Villa that stays in there.
"I remember the reaction of their fans after the game. That will never go away. Every time we come up against Aston Villa that's in the back of my head. Definitely."
Asked if there would be no love lost should Villa be relegated, Carver said: "Absolutely not.
"It's funny how things work out in life."
