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

2 in 18 & Then We Stuff The Scousers!

2 wins in 18 and then the Lions roar.

You've got to love football and you've got to love the Villa.

Match report from glensider, who is winding his merry way home from Anfield as we speak, in the morning.

Congrats to Martin for playing 4 5 1 and getting a much needed result, many congrats to Nigel Hokey-Cokey for putting in a REAL battling performance and to Brad Friedel for his show stopping man of the match performance.

I'd not have put 20p on that result, makes it all the sweeter. As said earlier, every time you write off the Villa, they offer up a little ray of sunshine, long may that formation and that spirit continue, they were a different team to Saturday's and all of a sudden, things don't look so bad!

Now lets see a few arrivals, a win in Europe and a decent home performance v Fulham.

Up the Villa!

Reo-Coker was awesome. Seems like 4-5-1 is the way to go!

I hope we're all a bit happier now - some of the abuse MON and the team have received recently has been unjust, although we definately do still need some action in the transfer market. We have a team there, and a with a few choice additions, we can still compete. Roll on Thursday, and then Fulham on Sunday. Have it!

Wow is the only word! I woke up this morning scouring the web for links on players and was on a bit of a downer again. Watched the match and it has brightend my night. We was amazing, Man of the Match performance by Reo Coker showed real leadership driving the team on. 4-5-1 suits our style better, Heskey comeing on late was a good move by MON aswell. Long may this performance continue UTV!

As a Chelsea fan donít think iv ever celebrated another team winning so much. Well played Villa.

great result - one result does not make a season - but at least some of the gloom is lifted. good to see Sidwell and NRC get games and be given a chance to shine.

Why has no-one mentioned Davies, the man was a mountain tonight, got his head on everything, almost Larsen-esque. To be fair, 11 great performances, everyone played their part. Up the villa! Up the 4-5-1!

4-5-1 with gabby up top is great away from home. at home, put carew up top with possibly gabby on the right and milner tuck inside for sidwell. noice.

The defense was under much more pressure tonight than it was against Wigan,yet looked alot more comfortable.Having protection infront of them made a world of difference.

Shorey. Davies. Cuellar. Beye. ROCKS.

I just feel sorry for the boo boys, they must be awfully frustrated with such a good performance. They'll be hoping for a much worsened performance on Sunday so they can have a good old whinge again.

Step up time: NRC was epic tonight!! An utterly fantastic performance! Also Davies, Friedal, Shorey and Happy Days all stepped up and it was a great night!!! Wow!! Maybe MON was right and we don't need to replace Barry just yet and NRC can take the reigns! Brilliant work boys!!! On a side note wa it me or did Gabby look either 'over weight' or 'muscular'? Answers on a postcard please! An amazing result considering we never saw the best from Young, Milner and Gabby. COME ON YOU LIONS!!! Imagine if MON adds a few more bodies and we will be rocking!!! UTV!!!

seriously lerneravfc, I'd have laid odds on you saying that, no matter what incarnation you come onto this site with, all you ever do is have a go at fellow fans whilst everyone else is just loving the win. And you call other people negative... you a blue nose in disguise or just after another ban ?

does that include Sidwell and Petrov for agreeing Longman? And although I'm not a boo boy, do you really think there is a Villa fan anywhere not grinning from ear to ear tonight mate? Do you think any Villa fan wants their team to lose? Wigan was awful, it deserved the comments it got from players and fans alike, tonight was blissful and the Villa we all want to see again and again and again.

Bloody hell Mr Fear, calm down, I'm talking more about the habitual whingers, the ones who whinge season in season out and pick scape goat after scape goat to blame, not the ones who make valid comments about their concerns. And trust me, I'm a HE Season ticket holder and they do exist.

longman, sorry mate, you misunderstand the tone of the post, wasn't having a go, just don't think even the most staunch whinger won't be having a nifty half and a smile tonight, unless they are criminally insance!

"do you really think there is a Villa fan anywhere not grinning from ear to ear tonight mate?" Unfortunately, JPF, there are just one or two who would rather we lost and they be proved right. See the Stats article for an example of somebody who would rather belittle the performance of our players than celebrate our win. I think some are reacting against that sort of post/mentality, rather than your own and similar views.
