James Collins told Sky Sports News that he'd not asked to leave West Ham and had enjoyed his time there but is happy to now be at Villa. On his debut yesterday he added: 'I was happy. It is always a bit of a funny game, your debut for a new club, but you obviously want to get off on the right foot with the fans and all the players and management.'

Richard Dunne said on AVTV after the game: 'It was a very intense derby. There was a lot of pressure on it and the atmosphere around the ground was really good. For us to come away here and put on a performance - I think we played really well and fully deserved the victory in the end - it was nice to get it towards the end of the game. Derby games always are battles - there is no fancy football in them usually.' Full quotes:

Viz thought for the day: Imagine my shock at getting a letter from my doctor advising me I only had a month to live but thankfully the letter was not for me but for my son with the same name who lives with us. Close call.
