17 goal attempts and 13 on target,unheard of.Played well and the work rate was blistering,job well done. Benteke scored first game and everyone worked hard for the team,it's all starting to look very good,superb.

I'd just like to say - that was an excellent performance from the Villa. I've stayed up til 2 in the morning to watch that with a bunch of fellow Villa supporting mates and we are all jumping from seeing a side that looked like a work in progress, but still delivered the goods. Guzan - faultless, won everything in the air and his point blank save in the second half was awesome. Vlaar and Lowton look like two of the best defensive signings ever. Benteke - missed a sitter but scored on his debut and looks like everything Bent isn't, passes well, deft little flicks, I'll give him plenty more games to settle in cos he looks great so far. Ireland - brilliant performance, Banna as well. Most importantly - we chased lost balls, ran into space intelligently, didnt even think about sitting back after going a goal in front. An absolute pleasure to watch, wish I'd been in Brum for that one ! UTV ! :)

EVERY player gave it their all! Today's performance was a breath of fresh air from last year. With this team, we can take on any team in the PL! UTV!

Commentator: "In a few weeks time, Swansea will look on at this result, and it won't be so bad. This seems to be the turning point for Villa's season" says it all really. Great stuff lads! Worth staying up for

the great thing is that we have only one "tough" game until end Oct. so plenty of time to settle before we have that remarkable 3-fixture-run which was presumably designed to seal our fate by Xmas. Plus we can go into the COC game against citeh and play to win rather than for a point....will be interesting.

Bloody hell - we bought on virtually three attacking players!!! I always said Bent was rubbish, the King is dead, long live the Krakan - that's what I've decided to call Bentke because he's a hyyyoooowj scary bloke! I cannot believe we have won. Seriously, aren't Swansea the new Arsenal? not today they aren't. This season is going to be crazy. We've been starved of good stuff for so long that I'm rapturous! Look at the bench..Nzo, Gab, Benteke. That's a dangerous bench. And if the rest of the subs can perform, then we look like we have strong squad already, depth too. Vlaar is worryingly class - top man!
