Following our 1-0 win over Blues, Doug has declared Villa the biggest club in Birmingham.

I agree!!!

He told the official site: 'I still regard Aston Villa as Birmingham's top club - definitely - and while I am around, it will always be the top club. No-one was more desperate than me for us to win on Sunday. The three points help our season and it has been frustrating for us over the past three seasons. There is a hunger amongst our supporters, shareholders, the people of Birmingham and the midlands for Villa to be successful again. I know that.'

DOL however has a bigger agenda, he wants to push Villa up the league.

He said: 'In the past two seasons we've finished the top team in the midlands. Now we've won a derby match. But I've a bigger agenda than this.

'I've came here two-and-a-half years ago to push this club further on and do well with it. My aims are a lot higher than winning a derby match. We get a certain few people that jump on the player's backs very quickly here. The Villa fans in general are a fantastic bunch but we have a few that jump on people very quickly. They don't realise the amount of players we have got out - and we can't afford to have that amount of players out. If we start getting them back, we will be a better team.'

He continued 'We had Kevin Phillips back on Sunday and you can see what a difference he makes. If he get Baros and McCann back, that will make a hell of a difference to us.'

I must admit, I'm hoping Bakke a) stays fit b) gets a good run c) moves permanently if he performs how he used to! But the prospect of Baros and Phillips back together does make nice reading, then Lukey to come off the bench and keep them both on their toes!
