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

Consistency Clocked?

Speaking after the fantastic win at Sunderland, Richard Dunne was pleased to see the team show the same 'intensity' as we did against United.

Much has been made of our consistency this season, well and in previous seasons to be honest, and following the fantastic win against United whilst the players were adamant they were going to secure another win, plenty of fans - even the optimistic ones - couldn't help thinking of previous 'big name' victories that were followed by lacklustre draws or worse...pathetic defeats.

Thankfully by halftime last night all horrible thoughts were gone as we saw Villa put in another good performance and look reasonably comfortable for the win.

The second half was even better!!!

Speaking on the Official Site Richard Dunne was overjoyed with the performance and was no doubt pleased that his words prior to the match didn't come back and bite him on the rear.

'It was the same intensity as Saturday.

'Everyone raises their game going to Old Trafford, but it is important to do it every week.

'We defended at the right times, attacked well and James's second goal was brilliant.'

In too many games previously we've either attacked brilliantly and defended like muppets or defended brilliantly and been invisible upfront. We've tried to play 'good' football at the wrong times, and not dug in when needed, or dug in permanently and looked awful.

The last few games have been different and whether that's 'just' down to the introduction of Downing and the freeing up of Milner or a general 'overall' click from the squad I don't know - nor do I care.

But now we are doing things the simple way. Defending with heart, attacking with intent and confidence, playing the boring football when needed, looking good when allowed...the full mix.

The last few games have been a delight to watch and have been what you'd expect from the squad of players we have. The days of dross of hopefully long gone!
