Plenty of post QPR win stuff:
Paul Lambert has hailed the team's 'exceptional reserves of courage' following our fightback against QPR today. Speaking to the Official Site following the 3-2 victory over our relegation threatened rivals, the gaffer said he thought we passed the ball well in the first half, but the goal rocked us, and we weren't really on the front foot.

However, the nice bit is the manager recognising the role the fans played.
I know I`m a sucker for this, hate when the fans - who pay good money to watch some very average stuff - get criticised but do so like an appreciation of what the 12th man brings to the table.
Just proves my point, give fans the right performance and effort and the claret and blue army will respond in kind... and then some.
Paul Lambert told www.avfc.co.uk that Villa park was 'rocking` and the noise was from all around the ground.
'The noise was deafening. The place was rocking. It just shows you the potential that is here. "
That is exactly the point. Some say we moan a lot. They don`t always stop to ask themselves why!? This is a big club, or was, and has underachieved massively since our last trophy in 1996. The fans have remained loyal in my humble and give us an excuse to make a noise, we make it. Not that we need an excuse on the road, we are superb on our travels!
Lambert continued: 'I have had nothing but praise for the crowd since I have been at the football club. They have been right behind us when we've been beaten pretty heavily. They have still come in their numbers to watch us."
Adding, 'It's big thanks from me to the crowd, that's for sure."
