There are only a few people who should hang their heads tonight. The youngsters on that pitch can certainly hold their heads high. The effort and commitment shown by them could teach a few of our first teamers some lessons. In games like this if you leave your bench bereft of options, then you need to rely on the old heads in the team - unfortunately not all of them turned up but at least Sidwell made the pitch, which is more than can be said Carew.

I understand Carew had a recurrence of his back injury, which is why he wasn't even on the bench. Don't know whether that's fact or not, but it would seem likely.

Problem is I'm skeptical, he's fit for other games even though he hardly turned up, yet cold night in Moscow he's a last minute pull out? In some ways I hope it is a proper injury because the last thing Carew needs hanging over his head is more doubts about his commitment.

flags to roar out the players one week, white flag the next. Oh well, maybe next season.

oh and well done to the kids tonight, they did themselves and Villa proud. Shame JC wasn't up to it, his injury record is a major concern, could have done with him tonight. Wonder if he is another who will be back for the weekend or if he has another spell on the injury table? Hopefully we'll get an update on the latest injury or if this is a reoccurrence of the old one.

Fear - I hope you mean "next season" in the champions league. However, how many players to you estimate that we need to buy, assuming we loose none, in the summer, so that we are able to compete for the duration of a cup competion, before we wave that white flag. How many and what positions?

Bit of easy motivation for next week at Man City for Mark Hughes. Come on lads these are the guys who have been rested we are the ones who are tired. The pressure is on Villa to perform, go at them like terriers for 90 minutes and show them who is tired and who is not. Hopefully Villa will come through it, but I wish we were tired and victorious and into the last 16. I just do not believe the result next week will be determined or significantly helped by our being rested. What will be, will be, and nobody can ever prove anything about ifs and buts. But what you can do is try and win every match. That is all you can do, but it is not what we have done. Up the Villa Please don't ever do this again.
