Steve Wade: Things are not looking good at Villa and a relegation battle looks on the cards come early February, when shortly after playing Man United, Villa find themselves participating in a genuine six-pointer against Fulham. The case against Houllier gets more convincing with every match and even judged on his own terms he is not doing very well. Is he the right fit for Villa? Full article: Calling Big Sam?

Eltoro: I know this will stir the hornets nest but here goes......I just wish people would stop putting the blame solely on Martin O`Neill, he didn't wake up and think 'I'm out of here', the board had something to do with this believe me, he would never just walk out at the time he did, something happened! Full article: When Won't It Be Martin O'Neill's Fault?

Astvil123: Villa are struggling and as long as we are 4 points above the drop zone then we have to admit, we are in a scrap at the moment. But last night's squad showed that the fully fit John Carew, Richard Dunne, Habib Beye and Stephen Ireland didn't even make the bench. Houllier surely has made the right decisions by getting the dead wood and moaners out of our squad and planning to sell them in January is a good move, but, have all these arguments, public criticisms and fights come at the worst possible time?

He`sbiggerthanmeandyou: We're never likely to realistically challenge at the top of the league again unless some mega rich fool seriously invests in this club, the fact is all of the top five are able to either pay big wages or big transfer fees. Some would argue that Spurs haven't exactly spent like City but they've been one of the biggest spenders over the last five years or so and that's bearing fruit right now, they've also got another important advantage and that's location It helped Chelsea immensly before the oil money when the likes of Gullit, Vialli, Zola, Desailly, Dechamps, Hasslebaink etc were popping up in west London and getting them into the Champions League.

Marc Albrighton has revealed that he is desperately disappointed that we couldn't secure even a point against Spurs given the chances we created. Speaking to the Official Site after yesterday's rather annoying 2-1 loss Albrighton said that he thinks we created more than enough chances during the match to secure a point, if not all 3. 'It is nice to score but the result has taken the gloss off again. We stepped it up in the second half but it still wasn't good enough. We know that as players and the fans knew that.' Full quotes: Albrighton Disappointed By Spurs Showing

Fabian Delph has paid tribute to his family and the entire Villa medical team for the support they gave him whilst out which his injury. Speaking on the Official Site Fabian took the opportunity to thank all those who helped him through his eight month lay off following his surprise return to action against Spurs yesterday. We've known for a while that Fab was well ahead of the game in terms of recovery, and the 21 year old managed to shave a month off his expected time out with the anterior cruciate ligament injury, which shows just how well he has done during this time and how well it has been handled by the staff. Full quotes: Family And Physios Just Fab To Delph

After picking up an injury in yesterday's loss to Spurs, Emile Heskey is unlikely to figure against Manchester City. Article: Heskey Likely To Miss Man City Trip
