Seeing as you decided to do the stats as well in one of your brief moments on here I deleted mine.

Made one alteration mind you matey...it's AGENT Ridgewell.

Fantastic performance, we now go above Everton in goal difference, but can we go level with them next week ??? Hopefully I'll find out but I'll be joining the army tomorrow so the outside world is restricted.

Were now the leagues 2nd highest scorers, only bettered by United. If we sign a real predator next season and tighten up at the back we could really challenge for 4th spot

We double posted the stats krisvilla so the older one was deleted as it didn't have as much info on them!

Good to see there wasnt many yellows on either side but there really was no need for it anyway.

Sorry, what was the score again? Not sure I'll ever get bored of people telling me!

:o) The funniest was a blue nose in Sainsbury on my way home, his face was nearly hitting the floor he was so glum. Had two bottles of wine to drown his sorrows. I just burst out laughing - to say he wasn't impressed would be an understatement!

Must admit think Ridgewell and another couple of the blues were very lucky not to get yellows, especially that nasty ridgewell tackle on barry.

Forssell fighting a lone battle for the blues was he?

He came on as a sub Merlin, finished well for his chance, maybe Villa can nab him when blues go down.

The look on Mellberg's face and the clenched fist as he was substituted when winning 5-1 against our and his most hated team was priceless. I am growing my beard for the Wigan game already!!

They looked a dispirited bunch. Reminded me very much of the Sheffield United team that came to Villa Park late last season, yet clearly had no heart for the fight.

Pleased that Forssell wasn't on from the start. He has that uncanny knack of regularly scoring against us.
