I'm finally lost for words....phenomenal performance, Albrighton proving he is 'Premiership class' and if it was to be Milner's send off, what a fantastic way of saying goodbye....typical performance and great goal to boot.

Special mention for Ciaran Clark, not a foot wrong again. A great day to be a Villan!

Great game today from the Villa boys. Gutted to see Milner go, but what will be will be. Albrighton was electric. Dont wanna jump on the 'watch us, we will finish 6th' bandwagon as its only been 1 game. Lets not heap expectation on the players and K-Mac just yet. 37 games to go!

Have we ever, in the last 5-6 years, had so much possession? Not just that, but it was useful possession, turned into a win. KM's Claret and Blue army!

Fantastic performance, the players looked hungry and confident and like they actually wanted to play football, Albrighton and Clarke are very exciting prospects

Absolutely fantastic! I can not remember a game that Villa played that well and it certainly was not under O'Neil! We could have easily scored 10 today with a bit of luck and with Carew on form. It was not just the score of 3-0, it was the whole team played like they were title winners and Westham were lucky it was just 3-0. I'm not getting ahead of myself but Man Utd and Chelsea will struggle to rip Westham apart like that this season. They are a good solid team so don't take nothing away from Villa as we made them play that bad as we were so good! I'm a big fan of Kevin Macdonald and we need to make sure the club know we want him as our next manager. He has transferred what he has been doing with the youth season after season to the first team. I'm not saying we are going to win the league but surely no one we could bring in could do any better than Kevin Macdonald. He obviously has the respect and backing of the players. It will be really daft to go and spend millions on another manager when it looks like we have one of the best here. Kevin MacDonald deserves to have until at least Christmas to show what he can do and this result shows we should be in no rush to get anyone else in. The only downside for me today was that I did not place a bet on 3-0 after I had predicted we would win 3-0 on this site. Lets hope my other prediction comes right of 3-1 or 4-1(can't remember what I predicted now lol) against Rapid!

Really I feel that sums up many of the points MON would not take. HE did not trust in youth and thought we must buy more good players. Going by that the young players more than deserve to be part of the squad. Marc was outstanding once again and Clark looked stable again. We also tryed to play a shorter passing game and ok we still worked hard to get the ball back but due to the passing being much shorter we kept it much better allowing us to control the tempo and tire out the opposition not our selfs. I hope this is a format that the new manager who ever it is follows. UP THE VILLA.
