Milan Baros - Looking For More

Milan Baros - Looking For More

Villa striker Milan Baros is looking to build on his goal against Sheffield Wednesday and show us Villa fans what he can do.

The Czech international told the official site:

'It's always nice to score in front of the Villa supporters. It would be nice to go on a run of goals now. That is my aim. But the most important thing is the points. If I don't score in the next game and it's three points for Villa, that's better than if we lose and I do score. Of course I am happy when I score and I will try to score in the next game. But the most important thing will always be points and we got just one on Monday - we need some wins.'

Baros, who was linked to Lyon recently before Gerrard Houllier played down the speculation, added:

'I was pleased to get my first goal of the season, but still disappointed with the result. It was like Portsmouth, we were 1-0 up at half-time and then went behind, before we had to equalize for the draw. It's a shame, because that was one of those games we should win. But that's football and we have to carry on trying to win games, not just drawing. Playing against teams like Sheffield United can be very tough. They look for the long balls, the long throw-ins and try to score from set-pieces.'

Baros has also praised fellow striker Chris Sutton and midfielder Stiliyan Petrov

On Sutton 'He's a good player. He heads the ball well and wins it for the other players. It was good to have him back and now he is fit Chris Sutton is definitely going to help us.'

And on Petrov's first goal, 'I was pleased for him. It's not easy to come to England and just perform well from the beginning. He had to settle down, but for me he gets better every single game and the goal will have lifted him up.'

No I think he ws trying to say build on his goal against Sheffield because today is Wedneday. or are you accusing the Fear of making a mistake AussieVilla? Because that sir, is unthinkable.

I get the feeling that the penny is dropping with Baros and he has started to realise that he has it all to prove. Hope I'm right, because if he gets his head right, he will be good for us.

Get Baros upto speed, three additions in January, + Laursen, Delaney and Moore returning from injury and we really could have a strong second half to the season. After we play Manure away in January we have a really good run of games until the end of the season.

One goal...may be the atart of a run - hope he destroys Bolton. We need to be on form or we are gonna get mashed by the Trotters. They are an example to so-called 'middle' teams....Come on Milan!!!!!! Hat trick please?!?!?!?!?!?

Is this the same Koolbill who refused to comment on Baros last week? lol. Just kiddin. I'm pleased for Milan, he's an obvious talent and its plain to see he just doesn't like playing up top with JPA. Hopefully a new partner will see him scoring a few more goals.

exactly deanovilla, if they cant play together, sell the one who scores fewer goals, Baros has to prove himself, JPA is a villa man and it would be a shame to let him go, but goals are more important. personally i'd sell them both and find someone to build a partnership with gabby 'hits from agbong' (cypress hill reference for the uninitiated)
