John Carew & Co In Their Oil Tot

John Carew & Co In Their Oil Tot

John Carew was in his oil tot (that is for Brummies only!) after scoring in front of the Holte End v Stoke on Saturday.

The Norwegian giant told the official site:

'It was fantastic to score in front of the Holte End. It always is. But it's especially great to score the winner - the deciding goal in the game. It was a great feeling. It was a good goal and a good result overall. It was a tough game because Stoke are very difficult opponents - a physical team. We have been on a good run and the challenge was to continue that and we managed to do it.'

He also says the cross by Ashley Young was 'perfect'. Good to see Ash starting to show some form this season, bodes well for the second leg in the new year when we tailed off so alarmingly last year.

JC added: 'To be part of this team is great. I am very happy and proud to be part of it. I just hope we can continue. We have positive feelings and lots of confidence.'

Stiliyan Petrov also says that Villa have the good habit of winning ugly these days. He said: 'Top teams often win by not playing well. If you remember last year we drew with Stoke and after that we just went downhill. On Saturday we had bad moments as well but we kept a clean sheet and we gave our strikers chances to win the game for us and that is what they did. It was a very hard week for us and we wanted to finish with as many points as we could and we've got the nine points so we couldn't ask for anymore.'

And Stewart Downing says the banana skin game v Stoke was the best win of the week for Villa.

'Obviously Sunderland was a tough game and Manchester United goes without saying but coming back home everyone just expected us to turn up and win the game no problem. It just wasn't like that. It was a tough game for us. I thought we rode it out, stuck in there and thankfully got the goal we needed. It was very pleasing. It was so, so important to win the game at home, following up on our great wins on the road. We left it late - but better late than never.'

Adding, 'I am massively proud of the four straight wins. But we have to keep going. We can't rest on our laurels. We've got two big games now - at Arsenal and against Liverpool - and it would be nice to get some points out of them. They could really set up our season.'
