Stats are looking better than last season though the number of attempts on target is still fairly poor.

PoL - Not bothered in stas for friendlies, especially those against teams who we will never meet in a serious game, in conditions that are different expected in the Premier League. I am not bothered if we don't have a shot on target until August 18th. The stats are meaningless. It is all about preparation for the start of the season. If you start worrying about stats for a friendly in July you will send yourself to the madhouse.

Delph was my choice for Villa captain, both in the, hopefully temporary, absence of Petrov and as his eventual permanent successor. I can also see the validaty of the Clark-for-Captain argument. But Delph would be my choice. Wouldn't read too much into his captaincy here, though.

@villaWillRiseAgain what makes you think Delph deserves to be captain? ive never thought he was very vocal but i do think he likes to put his foot in which i like never shys away from a tackle but i think he is a bit weak and needs to bulk up

b_V --He came with a terrific reputation @ Leeds. I saw a clip of him being interviewed after he arrived. He just struck me as being cut from a different cloth to most young, British footballers. He could be a Villa Roy Keane or Vieira but without the red mist. Don't always think a good captain has to be vocal. Some of the best lead by example.

Nice to have discussions about who would be a good captain. But I think none of us are in a decent enough position to have a decent opinion. Quite frankly I think this Paul Lambert bloke probably knows best - as opposed to our previous manager who knew jack 5h1t.
