Houllier's on to something exciting

Houllier's on to something exciting

Jonny's website

If Gerard Houllier's reign at Aston Villa amounts to trophies and great achievement, the moment it started might be recorded in an enforced substitution during an away game that we should have won.

Skipper Nigel Reo-Coker was forced off with injury and in his place came Ciaran Clark.

Not only was his consummate performance immediate in impact, he also joined fellow home grown players Barry Bannan, Marc Albrighton and Nathan Delfouneso in a team with attack inclinations.

In that moment, Houllier claimed a Class of 2010.

Whenever Villa had the ball, attack was on their mind. Ashley Young and Stewart Downing were always looking to break quickly and Villa should've wrapped the game long before Fulham claimed an undeserved equaliser.

The performance made mockery of our disappointing results on the road, and I'm convinced that will change over the coming away games.

Did clark play centre mid then. Do you think he shud play there in the future over centre half? Saw him against burnley and would have given him motm over cuellar! Bannan looks very very exciting just wants to shot anywhere near the box. They are gonna flow when he gets his first prem goal.

Ireland showed class when he came on - let's hope Houllier works out how to get the best of him - the Citeh fans voted him player of the season not long ago. I agree the youngsters were brilliant but Bannan did lose the ball a few times and we're guilty of that too often _ NRC did the same. Our key issue though is creating fouls at the end of play when we then lose the match. Stoke and Fulham are just two occasions but that's three points gone begging!
