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

64% Say Villa Win And No 'R' Word

Martin O'Neill is trying to avoid the 'R' word but knows a loss tonight would put us in the sort of action none of us want to think about.

The Villa boss said: 'I still believe we are capable of winning three consecutive games. It takes some doing, but we can do it. But as I'm saying those words, they sound a bit empty at the moment. The supporters were well aware of the strengths and weaknesses and wouldn't have been fooled by a couple of decent results at the start of the season. They have had a moan - we had a taste of it against Liverpool - but we deserved it. We surrendered territory in the game and never got it back.'

'If it goes against us, you will be asking: 'Are you looking over your shoulders?' But if we win tonight it will set us up for the season.'

The faith is still high, we asked in our usual pre-match poll what you thought the result would be. 64% predicted a Villa win, 16% said another draw and 20% said we'd lose.

COME ON THE VILLA. Right, where are my lucky pants, I'm off down Villa Park.

Thank god MO'N put the rocket up those boys backsides, why oh why could they not play like that in the first half!

The first half had us questioning whether or not the team really appreciated the mess that they are getting themselves into. We cant go on failing to pick up the three points, its getting too tight down there, but we will do until we perform for the full ninety, and start putting the chances away.
