    EPL side Aston Villa posted a £51.8M loss in its latest accounts for '12-13 -- but insists it can now “close a chapter” on its period of financial pain, according to Mat Kendrick of the BIRMINGHAM MAIL. The accounts for the year ending May 31 show that Aston Villa "reduced their operating losses" by £9.5M to £42.6M. But the loss after tax for the financial year increased by £34.1M to £51.8M because, unlike the year before, it "did not generate a substantial figure in selling players and because there was a significant waiver of interest in the previous accounts."
