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

Mystic Mug apologises

Martin O'Neill said Villa 'showed plenty of guts and character today' after the 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

The Villa, backed by outstanding away fans who were in fine voice from start to finish, put on a display to be proud of. The Villa boss reflected:

'I thought we were absolutely splendid today. We showed a bit of character right through the side. Even when we went a goal down and there might have been a feeling of 'here we go again', we stuck to the task. We played with great spirit, great determination and not a little ability. That was typified by Patrik Berger, but all the players contributed.'

'We could even afford the luxury of missing a penalty - not that it felt much like a luxury at the time! But then Gabby came up with a wonderful winning goal. Our equaliser came at a great time. It's a hard old league - as we've found to our cost at times. We've gone behind in a lot of games and it's not that easy to come from behind at this level. But today we came from behind, never gave up and went onto a deserved victory in the end.'

'Now we go into another big game at home to Wigan on Monday and another three points would move us a lot closer to safety.'

Vital Villa asked for your predictions, I get the feeling we had a few visits from Blackburn fans as 44% tipped us to lose, 28% said we'd draw and 28% were right with a win.

Mystic Mug has apologised for losing the faith after predicting a draw!

A fan who attended the game sent me a text saying Martin Laursen and Patrik Berger were 'awesome' today.

Did anyone ever seriously doubt we would win?

When I saw the formation which looked more like 4-6-0 I feared the worst, but by NOT having Big John up front, it meant the midfield had to play the ball on the ground and not just lump up up to him to flick on. Fabulous result and the travelling fans were just awesome - well done lads!!

It's one win, let's not get too caried away until we have another 2 of them. Good performance though and feels like a long time ago since we had a win, I forgot what to do.

Well said spit-fire. We have to continue the good work and beat Wigan on Monday. The tactics/line up worked perfectly at Ewood Park. The onus is on us to take the game to Wigan. Hopefully we can adapt.
