I figure I would start one since one has not been posted yet.
Good showing today with a 3-0 win over West Ham.
Hopefully the showing by the lads today (w/o Gabby, Collins and Cuellar) inspires Milner to stay for atleast the season.
Man City looked awful this morning and those classless rich wanks deserved that slop. Just because a team looks good on paper doesn't mean it will produce the chem it takes to win in the prem. Hopefully Milner realizes that, and the fact that he will get every minute of every game @ Villa....
Nonetheless, 3-0 to the villans, Newcastle awaits.... so do 3 more points
The first leg of Rapid Vienna v Aston Villa starts in a few
Aston Villa Starters:
Guzan, Lichaj, Beye, Davies, Warnock; Albrighton, Reo-Coker, Hogg, Downing, Bannan, Heskey
Subs: Friedel, Clark, Weimann, Osbourne, Delfouneso, Baker, Lowry
Great start. Bannan puts Villa 1-0 up.
1-0 Villa (11')
Goal by Bannan from a nice pass from Albrighton
1-1 There was a cross into the box and it missed all of the traffic in front of the net and Guzan misread it.
Guzan laid that dude out!! well done.
Where in the world is Fabian Delph?
Villa were eliminated from Europe by Rapid Vienna tonight.
Bad week. Polar opposite weeks for Villa.
Thankfully Villa held onto their early lead to get a much needed 3 points. It was really good to see a win after being blown out by Newcastle and the disappointing loss in the Europa League
you guys we're extremely lucky to get the win. Everton completely dominated and probably should've won 12-0 since they played twice as well as Newcastle did against you. Friedel really stood on his head and saved your asses.
Great header by Downing to make it 1-0 vs Stoke
Wow...Ashley Young should have made the score 2-0 in the first half and it came back to bite them in the butt.
Villans-Wolves at the Molineux tomorrow! Gotta get up early on the US East Coast...gaffer Houllier is touting Emile Heskey as the difference in the CC win over Blackburn...I'm not sure that's a good thing...

Great match today against Chelsea. The match was televised here in the US on Fox Soccer Channel. Villa never threw in the towel and Clarks late goal gave Villa a well deserved draw.
Here is the match review:
Big game against Sunderland wednesday. We need the win. At home we need to be winning or we will stay near the relegation zone
Bent sure seems to always get off to good starts when he moves around.
Wigan vs. Aston Villa, tonight. Come on Villa!

onward and upward.
Villa defeated Rovers 3-1 in the FA Cup round of 32, earlier today.
