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

Bittersweet League Debut

Brad Guzan has admitted any joy he may have felt about finally making his Premier League debut was completely overshadowed by the result.

Speaking on the official site today Guzan explained his frustration at coming off the bench to face a penalty, and his wish that the day could've been a lot different.

'It's exciting to make my Premier League debut but under the circumstances I would have wished for it to have been a bit different.

'Any time you have to face a penalty is difficult let alone when coming off the bench.

'But in those circumstances you try and do your best and unfortunately I couldn't keep it out of the back of the net. So that part stings a bit but we are all just going to want to put this behind us.

'I don't think we were at our best and obviously when you play big teams in big games you have to be good and be ready to play from the start.'

With Villa appealing Friedel's red card, it's unsure if Guzan will have the opportunity of playing another big team in a big game and having his first league start go differently.

Bit of a shame for him really, first game in the PL and it was a stinker of a result!
The Fear
I'd be tempted to start Guzan anyway, haven't been all that impressed with Brad senior since he's joined! On another note I think you should add another option on the MOTM vote, the fans. Thought we were brilliant yesterday and as usual out sung the scousers. Maybe MON could come out and applaud us for a change!

What the ***** was Barry at yesterday Steve hodge any one...!!!!!

MON always, but always applauds the away fans at the end of the game pjvilla. I've seen all but one away game to date this season (Chelsea at The Bridge), and he's never failed to do so. Often he directs or even leads the players over to where the away section is located.

His mind certainly wasn't on our game was it B6_COMPANY? He sort of looked as if he were standing back enjoying the football served up by his mate Stevie G and co, wishing that he himself was sporting the red Liverpool shirt. Not one of his better games.
