Villa Faithful Make The Difference

Villa Faithful Make The Difference

Villa skipper Gareth Barry says the Villa faithful can make all the difference tonight.

The soon to be (or if not sack McClaren!) England midfielder told the official site: 'Of course 6,000 fans can make a difference. The fact that we played so well down there recently can also give us a lot of confidence going into the game. The fans were superb at Leicester in the last round and I'm sure they'll make loads of noise again tonight. They can play a big part.'

'But it's still Chelsea and we have to be at our very best to get anything from the game. We played well when we drew 1-1 there and we'll need at least a repeat.'

Adding 'This is a competition we take very seriously. It's our quickest route into Europe and that's where everyone wants to be playing next season. But Chelsea away was as tough a draw as we could have been given and we will have to be at our very best to get through to the next round. We're not underestimating the task.'

The longer McClaren stays as England manager the better IMO. Because you know where the FA will be coming for the next England manager if he gets the sack....

You are right, Geordie, that is what woories me too. MON has demonstrated in his short time here a Villa Park that he really is the best manager in the country. I only hope that MON's integrity is such that he would say, if he was approached, "No, I have started this job and I will not walk away now." Strangely I really believe that would be his approach.

Pessimists! Your assuming that the FA would do the right thing! When have they ever made sense of anything? IMO If McLaren goes, and he won't for at least a year, the FA will look for another overseas appointment. Seems that MON cocked up his interview with them - plus he wanted to take his own backroom team which they did not like like. Lose MON? Not to the FA. Nor I think anywhere else for at least the next three years, assuming health is not an issue.

Hope this injury picked up at The Bridge doesnt rule him out of contention. It looked nasty.

6,000......I think we sounded more like 60,000. Great vocal backing throughout.
