Another Three Goals For Villa

Villa ended their pre-season trip to North America with a 3-1 win over Columbus.

Ashley Young, Gareth Barry and Luke Moore were the scorers and Martin O'Neill said: 'We're starting to look a real threat going forward.'

VILLA: Taylor, Cahill, Barry, Bouma, Young, Reo-Coker, Laursen, Maloney, Agbonlahor, Mellberg, Carew. Subs: O'Halloran (replaced Bouma half time), Osbourne (replaced Agbonlahor 72), Ridgewell (replaced Laursen half time), Gardner (replaced Barry half time), Petrov (replaced Reo-Coker half time), Berger (replaced Young half time), Stieber, Moore (replaced Carew half time), Harewood (replaced Maloney 57).

Having scored 4 the previous game v Toronto (3 for Luke Moore) Martin O'Neill continued: 'The attacking play has been very good. We were very strong again tonight in the first-half. I made a few changes at half-time and the lads took a little bit of time to settle in the second-half. But I've been very, very pleased. We look as if we're capable of scoring goals. We need to sort a few things out defensively and we'll try and work on that as best we can between now and the Liverpool game.'

Adding on the official site: 'The three goals tonight were all quality goals, but I think we're capable of that. I think the players have got a lot of confidence from the back end of the season when we played some great stuff. We've carried it on here in these games and we definitely look a threat. Now, when we haven't got the ball, we might just have to work a wee bit harder to get it. But, considering our state of fitness before we came out here, I'm very pleased.'

Ashleys goal was frightening and MON is right - we have enough attacking options but the other end is a concern.

Great opening goal from Ash, Gareth's well worked too. Then took our foot off the pedal. Second half Crew came back at us strong, created and missed a few opportunities, eventually pulled one back, only for us to regain control and go on to score a third. About 300 or so Villans in attendance, Crew fans great, friendly and jovial, all in all a very enjoyable away-day. Please though Martin, if you do nothing else, bring in a specialist right full back, and sort that defense out. Both Toronto, and The Crew created way too many opportunities for my liking, the type of opportunities that premiership strikers are going to feed upon with glee. Flight back home this afternoon, back to reality...and no doubt rain!

Be interesting to read the players and managers views on the tour, facilities, opposition, long haul etc. etc. Do they think its been more beneficial to them than the regular hike to Scandinavia?
