Well not for the first time these stats just look wrong...but who cares. We are on a run. It was a good performance; plenty of skill when needed and allowed, plenty of grit and determination when needed and no choice.

That'll do me.

i've heard of getting stuck in, but that's cana is scum. what a mug. shame to see gabby diving as well. aside that, another win without really hitting 3rd gear. a win against stoke and we'll be in great momentum come arsenal.

Cana cannot stay on his feet for more than three seconds, Richardson was absolutely awful tonight,,,, read my report on the Vital Sunderland page.

I may have Claret and blue glasses on but i dont remember Gabby diving i saw him get tripped in the penalty area and should have had a penalty . Milner was fantastic Garry Barry will be looking over his shoulder . The whole defence especially Dunne were solid even Heskey is playing well and Ashley Young had one of his better games .

Gabby should have had a penalty from the Petrov long ball? Definitely. But he took a bit of a tumble about 10 minutes after Milner's goal, I think it was with Turner. Can't totally remember! I said from the start that Milner is the perfect replacement for GB. In fact, with a few more years experience, penalty-taking aside, I think he could be better than GB - if he isn't already ;) Downing had a good game, too. Very unlucky with the freekick. UTV. Bring on stoke, we've gotta get them back for last season.

Sky sports stats tell a story of a dominent display with wasted chances from sunderland. Villa with 42% of play simply took their chances after missing a couple of openings. Still good though as this could have been a simple revenge for the cup defeat! We now must beat stoke and then maybe we can just turn up against le arsenal. Nice to see Milner get on the sheet with what reads to be a 25yds screamer, was it that good? UTV.

They may have had more possession but Ashley Young hit a post and Downing hit the Crossbar . I thought Sunderland played some good football tonight but i think Villa deserved the win .

on a bit of a run right now, lets do stoke now and really show the league we mean business. Can't under estimate what a win up at Sunderland means, we are on fire and great to see Heskey on score sheet again

Dunne has been briliant since he has come to villa but that was his best game, what a player. What i like about Milner in the middle is he doesn't always go wide and has a great eye for a killer pass which i didn't think he had in him. I was sceptical a first about about moving him into the middle but he has been absolutly outstanding he is even bringing the best out of Petrov. great to see

Milner's goal was THAT good! Absolutely brilliant game, thought we played really well and the Villa fans were brilliant! Loved every minute of my first away game, and the 20 quid I won on the score paid for my petrol money!! :D

saw the game live on tv in Bangkok...we are playing really good. James Milner is a reverlation...even Heskey is looking good now. Carlos keeping James Collins out of the side idenities our defense is tops. Sensationa times to be a Villa fan. Bring on Stoke 2 - the revenge

I saw it over here in the states live... sorry to rub it in.... there is something special about us right now, i think we have a better shot at the top 4 than last year, but that second half of the season is gonna be the true test.
