Am I dreaming ?????????????????
MASON_PARKER
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the incredible, unpredictable and never dull ASTON VILLA!!!
olofthegreat
In your face McLeish!!!! it CAN be done! For me the best thing is seeing gabby amongst the goals- all the suggestions are he's surplus/only back up but I really hope we stick with him. Great work from Agent Barry too!
revolutionatlast
No you just got the question mark button stuck.
daveyboyr
The win is very pleasing but the fact that the stats back it up really makes me smile, well done lads!! UTV!! 4-0 this weekend
AdzVilla11
revolution......couldn't agree more. brilliant, just brilliant. Got to take this result into the baggies game now. I'm so annoyed though that NZ sky doesn't show either of our domestic cup comps until the final. Games like this should be showed around the globe surely! looked real entertainment. UTV.

Remember when Houllier stuck out a joke team because "we couldn't beat them". This is all we ask for!!! A team of fighters. If we lose a game 4-1 then win a harder game 4-2 away from home at the league champions, I am happy.
simonbigron
Haha we shook the sheikhs boys. They are a disgrace to their pay packets. Manchini couldnt manage a packet of salt and sheikh crisps. Well done villa boys.
RiF
Man Citys team cost 203 million tonight.
Blitz
Deserved it, played some good football and really fought for that especially after going behind twice. The only thing I could wish for is that Lambert had stuck one on that idiot Mancini but hey ho ill take the win and a GB O.G. Rest the legs for the baggies boys. Our Villa has its Pride back.
Lion Heart
brillant... was watching all the results come in. Nice one the lads good effort. Glad that gabby got in the goals too.
maigrait
oh yeh well done agent barry.... :)
maigrait
That has made my night! Good one boys!
zigthevilla
Mancin! Balotelli! Mansour! Barry! Lescott..."YOUR BOYS TOOK ONE HELL OF A BEATING!"
koolbill
Good to see the Villans with something to smile about. Youz needed that, bless your cotton socks!
rojo2010
Ours cost 37million roughly...
daveyboyr
Morning All! I woke up about 20 minutes ago..... well I think I did, I seem to be dreaming we beat Man Citeh 4-2...... I'm sure I'll wake up properly in a minute.....
Pride of Lions
No, I'm sure I'm awake.... now I'm in shock. Well done the Villa! I think this season is going to be a real rollercaster ride, it's beginning to look that way..... Nice to see Gabby with a couple of goals before November too.
Pride of Lions
Villa for the double now surely! Positivity only now for the baggies game from all the villains and let's build some momentum.
Tylervilla2012
Great result and lets hope we can follow it up against Albion, we need Gabby and the other forwards to score goals on a regular basis, the 'bread and butter' goal by N'Zogbia was a classic goal that we haven't been scoring , a player following in. Hope we get some luck now with the draw.

Best news of all is to see Gabby on the scoresheet. On his day (yes, he does have them) he really looks unplayable and can actually shoot. Last night he was up for it. If he can do it against Citeh, surely Lambert can make him understand that when his head is right, he can do it against anyone.
144wittonlane
great that gabby had a good game, other plus points - Nzogbia on the score sheet, Albie back on the pitch, heads didn't drop, and we passed the ball rather than hoofing it. Only negative for me was the defending for their first goal.
AVbornandbred
@144wittonlane actually the best news is that barry scored an own goal :)
black_villian
Villa were like a streak of bat's pis*!
OnMeHeadFred
Great result, it was so good to see a Villa side fighting for the result, never giving up. A Villa side with pride. Lets beat the Baggies and enjoy the rollercoaster ride that this season will be. UTV
jfr7730
I know what you mean Black Villain, but Barry can't score for us every week. Agent Oggie Barry did put a big smile on my face though! I bet he took some stick in the dressing room afterwards!
144wittonlane
Maybe Barry has missed us cheering him, all that booing finally paid off! Top man!
Chelt Villan
Im really proud of them players last night, the sign of a good manager and team is how hey bounce backavter defeat and adversity and they did that all right lol brilliant, PLEASE LET US WIN THS CUP WOULD LUV IT! utv!
clivethevillan
203m against 37m. What it cost to build the Villa team would have bought you Dzecko and one of Ballotellis legs. They had three of the biggest priced strikers earning more money than you can spend, against a reserve keeper, Roncrete and 3 kids. As we sang to the Mancs - you have the money, but we have the class.
voiceoftheholte
LOL VOTH i wished i was there man what a treat that was, it goes to show don't it what Lambert and the players can do and given time what we can achieve as a club together, really entirely buzzin my tits off, i have not buzzed my tits off so much since i used to go clubin in my teenager years on a saturday night LOL
clivethevillan
Was at the game last, but had to sit in Citeh's end, i must say our fans are no.1 in the country. Out sung the people that were sat next to me for sure. Im glad you sang 'No respect' after 19th minute, a pr mistake which led them to mentioning it at half time. The one game we play outstanding is the day i had to sit in the wrong end. Plus i dont know if anyone noticed in the opening 10 mins, we should've had a penalty. Lescott handled the ball, cheating c***. Anyways UTV - Gabby/Delph Motm
