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

Guzan Living The Dream

Brad Guzan has said it is a 'tremendous honour' to be in the Villa squad as we travelled to Prague for our next Group Stage match in the UEFA Cup.

Speaking to the official site, the young American keeper said:

'To sample that European atmosphere is a tremendous honour.

'The UEFA Cup is a massive competition and it's fantastic to be a part of that. The competition is high on our priority list.

'Newcastle was a blow for the team but we are desperate to bounce back.

'Any time you can play again straight after a defeat is a good thing. We want to get back on the field and get a good result. It won't be easy but we are looking forward to the game.

'As long as we stay focused on what we need to do, I am confident we will do well. It will be a tough game - no doubt about it.

'But we have done our homework. We have studied DVDs and prepared thoroughly and we will be ready for them.'

Martin Laursen has been over all the local press, talking about how we handle the pressure especially after the loss to Newcastle and how we need to bounce back and put in a good performance and get a good result against Slavia to get us back on track.

And with Petrov, Milner, Osbourne and Harewood all left at home we need a reaction from midfield, as against Newcastle we clearly missed Petrov and upfront we need them to be firing as we expect them to because we don't even have the muscle back up of the Hare this time round.

By the way, Petrov is struggling with a hamstring injury and Milner has a sore side, both should be in contention for Boro.

Harewood and Osbourne aren't injured, both of them scored about 9 odd months ago.

So congratulations go to the Hare and his family as his partner has just given birth, whilst congratulations go to Ozzie who's partner is due to give birth in the next few days.

Hopefully against Slavia the team will take their lead and put in a performance that gives our travelling fans children aswell....not by conceeding 15 goals obviously, scoring 15 goals would be the right way to look at it.

Hopefully the younger of the two Brad's is learning, improving, and getting ready for the call. Good luck to the guy.

Definitely missed the inspired performances of Stan Petrov. He has become such an important player for us, his absence is bound to be felt.
