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

Barry Looking For Storming Finish

Gareth Barry is hoping the 3 week break will give Villa the chance to re-charge their batteries and to finish the season strongly.

The Villa captain said: 'There are 11 games left and a lot can still happen. We want at least to finish on a high and hopefully get the fans in for the last five games to show them what's going to come next season. The majority of players have played most of the games and the rest will do them good, refresh the batteries and let them come out firing again.'

'There's also plenty of time to have a few discussions about what has gone on and where we want to be heading. I'm sure the manager will want to work on a few things. They don't just want the season to drift to a finish. We've had a couple of wins recently and also played well in games where the results didn't go our way. The bringing in of John Carew, Ashley Young and Shaun Maloney was also a real sign of intent by the club and the manager - particularly in January when good players are always normally hard to come by and, if available, at inflated prices.'

Adding on the official site: 'They have helped to create a buzz around the place and are top quality additions to the squad.'

should get the players in a great position as the break will give little niggles time to heal etc. Lets hope we can notch some points on the board and finish in the top ten or maybe even.... dare we dream Uefa?!!

A storming end to this season would no dobt sent expectations soaring for next season, but maybe the faithful deserve a few points before the end of the season, It would be brilliant if we could have a good run and still hold out a chance of European Football with one or two matches to play. Make the remaining matches a challenge for the squad instead of a flat end of season finish.

We're with you Gareth. A healthy points total from Fulham through to seasons end would be very welcome. Victories against Liverpool and Arsenal wouldn't go amiss either. Enjoy the break lads, get over the strains and niggles, and come out at Craven Cottage with all guns blazing. A victory in London is long overdue.

If it helps us turn draws into victories then it will have proved to be a huge success. Of course, only time will tell.
