Aston Villa Go 3rd In The Prem

Vital Villa asked what the result would be in the clash of the league old boys Everton v Villa?

40% said we'd win.

29% predicted a draw.

31% said Villa would lose.

40% were bang on the money as Aston Villa earnt a hard fought 1-0 victory over the Toffees and rose to 3rd in the Premiership.

I think I'll repeat that, Aston Villa rose to 3rd in the division. AND all that with a fair few injury problems today.

Villa have played 12 games, won 5, draw 6 and lost just once (against Liverpool).

This was Villa's first away win this term and what makes it even more impressive is that this was Everton's first home loss of the season.

If you've not seen it already, trust me, watch the pass/cross by Isaiah Osbourne to Chris Sutton. The chip was inch perfect and Sutton just needed the deftest of touches to glance the ball into the back of the net via a sweet header.

Happy days!

Our latest poll asks if Stiliyan Petrov is right to say Villa can push for fourth place this season: Villa? 4th? Why Not?

Always remember what Withe used to say when we won the league .. its how you handle defeats which are crucial. Now I know that we aint gonna do what we did 25 years ago at present, but we have lost to Liverpool then won our next game (Blackburn) and then lost to Cheski and then won today .. all with injuries to kep players as well. Team spirit is great. We are 12 points better off thatn at the same stage last season. Its all in the right direction boys!

What a difference a good manager and owner makes. Back in May who'd have thought we'd be 3rd after 12 games this season? Today was a great result for our club. As for Sutton.. he isn't even fully fit yet. He looks like a MON genius stroke signing at the moment. Rather him up front than Baros any day on current form.

Heroes on and all. Chris Sutton gave another very impressive all round performance up front, young Isiah was a real battler in midfield, while the relatively infant Cahill/Ridgewell partnership was both impressive and effective. Yet another away-day where we've put right our sins of last season (Arsenal, West Ham, and now Everton).

Lets not get overly carried away though. There's still a long, long way to go this season, and we're still well short of being a top premiership team again.
