AVbornandbred: Some fans are going on about our new arrivals being too young, too inexperienced etc. There are some fans on this and other sites who are unhappy, Merson, Le Tissier and friends on Sky waxed lyrical about how inadequate the signings were, and we already know that many pundits are predicting us to get relegated. So have we really just signed a bunch of schoolboys fresh from the academy? Of those brought in: Inexperienced Or Just Unknown?

Gordon Cowans has said there are no excuses for how we threw the second half against Southampton in the recent U21 match. Villa had a commanding 3-0 in the first half, but a very sloppy second half - Cowans' own words - saw the Saints claw it back to 3-3 leaving Sid feeling like the side had been defeated. Speaking to the Official Site Sid said: Cowans - There Are No Excuses

Villa's easy encounter against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup now has a date! The game will take place at the Etihad Stadium on September 25 and will kick off at 7.45pm. Yes that's a Tuesday.

Oh the season is so young and already fans are disrupted by the joys of Sky. Paul Lambert's first return, well first visit, of Norwich City has been shifted around due to Liverpool's involvement in the Europa League - no doubt another loss he he. The game at Villa Park will now kick of at the fan-tastic time of 12.45pm on October 27. The game will still be screened on Sky Sports.

Paul Lambert welcomed Gabby Agbonlahor back to the team against Newcastle, and he couldn't have been more delighted. Speaking on a blog piece on the Official Site the gaffer said: Lambert Pleased With Gabster Return

Ciaran Clark has said that both he and Villa have got points to prove this season as pundits rally to tip us for the drop, and he believes we made our first, as we gained our first, against Newcastle. Speaking to the Birmingham Mail Clark said that the Newcastle performance was the first of many points the team would prove over the course of the season to those who have written us off. Quotes: Clark - Villa Have Points To Prove

Deadline day signing Ashley Westwood has admitted his move to Villa came as a surprise, but now he's here he just wants to concentrate on his football. Speaking to the Official Site Westwood admitted a deadline day transfer was completely new for him having come through the ranks, so he was both excited and a bit nervous, especially with how quick it was all sorted.
