I've found my new career path, I can be as incompetent as the worst of European referees, I know I can pass that test. Einwaller is a shining becon of light when it comes to misunderstanding the rules and being an idiot. Rennie, Riley, Poll, Halsey - tonight the quality of this idiot almost, I say almost, makes you lot look competent. That however could be the lager talking, and probably is. Thank God this idiot didn't ruin this match. We are back in Europe folks - God it feels good. Again Aston Villa are flying the English flag with pride.

At 1-1 the game could obviously have gone either way in the second half, but Gareth's goal on the stroke of half time put us back in the driving seat. Talk about a goal at the right time.
