Wadey: It`s been a very fine week for Paul Lambert's young gentlemen as Aston Villa's new generation showed both resilience and audacious attacking prowess in the course of a satisfying few days. On Saturday the plucky young pupils of Villa's college of fine footie took on the visitors from Staffordshire; a side very much of the old school, where hacking and scrimmage are still the main features of their game plan, and who alas, show their affinity with the potteries' tradition, with the pragmatism rather more associated with Armitage Shanks, than the elegance of Wedgwood or Spode. Bearing this in mind, it was no surprise that a smaller crowd than expected filled the Aston Villa Grounds, to witness Villa's bright-eyed young men take on the grim battlers of Stoke City.
