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

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.
