'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Attacking Football Promised

Here we go again, David O'Leary insisting that Villa like to play attacking football?!

He has told the official site that the FA Cup fifth round game against Manchester City could be a good game.
O'Leary told www.avfc.co.uk: 'Of course the first thing you look for is a home draw and that's what we've got. It's different from the previous two rounds, because we know all about Manchester City and we know they're a quality side.'

Adding: 'But we've got through to the last 16 and we want to extend our run in the competition. I'm sure we'll have a good crowd behind us at Villa Park.'

It will be interesting to see what crowd does attend, the tie against Port Vale at the weekend brought about a disappointing attendance of just over 30 000 with over 8000 from Port Vale. Will a tie against Premier League opposition increase that? Looks like fans across the country are starting to pick and choose games more though, we had one of the highest attendances in the FA Cup.

O'Leary continued: 'The tie brings together two sides who like to play attacking football, so it has the makings of a good FA Cup tie.'

Adding Villa have got to concentrate on the Premiership until the tie - which will be played on February 18/19th.
