'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Steve Sidwell Looking For Home Comforts

Steve Sidwell says he wants to be a Holte end hero and hopes his next goal will be in front of the Villa faithful at home. Sidwell, (can we call him Sid or is that name resaved for THE Sid, Gordon Cowan's?!), scored a sublime goal v Wigan at the JJB and told the official site:

'It was nice to get on the pitch, first and foremost. To chip in with a goal was pleasing. It was a nice cherry on the cake. It was nice to score in front of the away fans too. I knew when it left my boot that it was going in. There's only one thing in my mind when I get a chance in front of goal and that's to shoot.'

Adding, 'It went in and to celebrate with the fans was fantastic. Hopefully, the next one will be in front of the Holte End. It was a great dressing room after the game - exactly what you'd expect after a 4-0 win. But we have games coming thick and fast so there's no time to relax.'

Great premiership debut for Sid and nice to see Villa win so handsomely in Martin O'Neill's 100th game in charge!

This guy will be class for us.

A good signing. Once fully fit and with a few games under his belt, he'll become a very important player at the club, and quite probably a big hit amongst the supporters too.

He's more than likely to chip in with some important goals for us too, a commodity we've all too often lacked from our midfielders.
