Hmmmmmmmm. Bent gets DROPPED and not even on from the bench and we beat the 90% fully strength league champions at their place!!! Gabby has scored twice as much with much less game time. As I've said previously, it allows the rest to play by dropping the excess baggage who's incapable of pulling his weight. Bannan out aswell. Damn I hate being right. No-one likes a smart arse ( except the smart arse himself .)

Ha Ha Ha. OK 444 forced to give you that one. Bent was on the bench though. What a ficking great result. Still can't quite believe it.

The things I noticed: Gabby got 2 against the champs, the champs were at home, they were practically as strong as normal anyway, and villa knocked 4 past them. Quite a legendary result for this generation.

Hang on to your hats for a Roller Coaster ride of a season. What a morale booster. A massive result.

Nothing to bother you very often then, 444, if you hate being right - you mostly aren't ... :o)

What a fantastic result and response from the weekend. lambert has got the steel that other so called managers never had. In the hat tomorrow night if we can beat the champions in their own back yard then we should fear no one!!

Amazing what a bit of competition can do for the likes of Gabby and N'somnia. Lets do the same to the Bagheads on Sunday now. UTV. #believe.

Okayyyyy. I'll take the bait...the team won...why turn it into a Bent gloat. Also, he's not dropped until the gaffer says he is dropped and I bet you he plays v WBA...agree re Bannan. I reckon Bent was RESTED ;-)...one could call it ROTATION?

TOTALLY agree with Madirish. BobTheBuilder: now, now, that's not nice...even if you're right.
