They scored on 81 mins. 2 subs from us on 82 mins and we won. Got to give the new messiah some credit gents. Was always going to be a tricky game seeing half our players are 1st div experience ;-)

That 33% is wrong I was following it on Goal(dot)com and they said it was all Villa and looking comfortable for large parts of the game... The match report even says Swindon looked far out of their depth... Swindon did have more possession at times but on average their coverage suggested 51/49 for large parts of the game...

We have overcome a banana skin. Our new striker scored his 3rd and 4th goals of the campaign. We are in the last 8 of the competition having overcome two in form lower division sides and the League champions who put out a team costing almost 10 times what ours cost . . . . . . . . and 'fans' are questioning the possesion stats like they are more important than the result!!!!! Sorry folks, but it is the most absurd sign of the times imaginable. Forget the result, lets look for a negative stat and talk about that instead. Fickle fickle fickle and completely forgetting or overlooking what football is all about. I can imagine it now. We win the trophy in late Feb early March and there will be keyboard warriors telling the world this is a new dawn, the Villa are back and that they never doubted Randolph and Lambert. And there will be others who are on their keyboards as soon as we are lifting the trophy saying we only had 25% possesion and the other team had 2 more corners than us. FFS have a look at your selves!!! What ever happened to good old fashioned support. This is real life we are talking about and the muppets think it is FIFA 12. Unbelievable. Maybe I am old fashioned and football is not about a results it is about what prozone says??? Maybe possesion is more important than a win??? Thank god we only had 24% possesion against Bayern Munich on 26th May 1982. Maybe we should rewrite history and give the trophy to them because they had the ball more than us??? If I remember rightly we stuck it in their net more times than they stuck it in ours. And old fashioned or not, if we score more than them then we win the game. I am off to bang the missus. And she is only getting 33% of it because I am going to save her a little bit for Saturday.
