Fieldy: Wee Barry Bannan has said that the host of changes made by Ian Holloway for last nights match, actually made it more difficult for the boys. Speaking on the Official Site following last nights roller coaster game Bannan dismissed suggestions that Villa had the advantage with Blackpool's accepted first team out, because the Seasiders had nothing to lose, and the players selected had everything to gain.

Fieldy: Nathan Delfouneso has said he was overjoyed to get on the scoresheet in last nights clash against Blackpool, but he still doesn't understand why he had a goal ruled out. Speaking on the Official Site Delboy explained he was pleased he was able to grab his goal given the disappointment he felt following the referee's ludicrous decision to cancel out his true opener and his failure to find the net in our last match. 'It was a proud moment for me getting another goal in the Premier League, but the main thing is that we got the 3 points. 'Personally I felt disappointed that I didn't get a goal at Fulham, especially with the chances I had, I felt I should've done better.' Full article: Delfouneso - 'I Should've Had Two'

Fieldy: Villa have moved the Wet Spam and Arsenal matches to Hinckley United's Greene King Stadium. The Wet Spam clash on Monday (November 15) will kick off at 7pm, and our New Years clash against Arsenal on January 10th will also kick off at 7pm. Text coverage and commentary will no doubt be available on the Official Site as normal.

Tony McAndrew was overjoyed with the Fulham performance and was proud to see so many Academy graduates shining on the Premier League stage. Speaking on the Official Site McAndrew said he was delighted to see Albrighton, Bannan, Delfouneso and Clark play important parts in the game, and seeing the Academy have an impact on the substitutes bench with Hogg and Lichaj was also pleasing. Full quotes: McAndrew Chuffed With Progress

I cannot recall such a previous occasion when we've suffered so many injuries at the same time. On the one hand of course, it means that our youngsters are being provided with the opportunity to step up to the plate and produce, but the downside is that we are missing experienced players whose presence in the starting line-up would be an important boost at this key stage of our season. I know I keep harping on about it, but I'm not keen, or indeed happy, about the reserve team fixtures being switched to Hinckley United's Greene King Stadium. I understand the reasons why, and it has to be admitted that Hinckley is hardly the other side of the country, but it still makes it more difficult to get along to these games and cheer our youngsters on.
