Villa Walking On The Moon As Arsenal Eclipsed!

Blimey, a positive post from Oohaah.
Relish the moment;

As someone who gets slated for always being negative, I have always said “give me something positive and I will run with it”. Well today is that day. What can I say!?

Firstly congratulations to Lambert and the players on a fantastic performance and result. After going a goal down in 5 mins we all thought the writing was on the wall where Villa would capitulate, losing 3 or 4 nil and doing a damage limitation exercise. But not a bit of it, as this is ‘new’ villa that are more resilient and street wise than last year.

As expected, the defence looked shakey for most of the match but the noticeable thing was we did the basic school boy stuff when we needed to. When lunar and Clark were under pressure on the left they produced no nonsense clearances to concede a throw-in. Compare that to last season when Bennett and Clark would try a dribble the ball out and get into trouble by being caught in possession.

Another noticeable difference was we fouled them when we were in trouble and took a booking for the team. I’ve often criticised the Villa as being a nice team but today was different; today we actually bullied Arsenal all over the park with Delph being immense and deservedly getting motm.
Even at 3.1 up with a few minutes left gabby bought one of their players down and took one for the team which stopped the danger.
Today this team was more professional and nasty with Delph leading the way. Gentlemen I think we have found our captain!

      So it’s middle class to actually go to games and get pissed ? I don’t get that.

      If I bump into you in the Yew Tree I’m sure you’ll be surprised.

      Don’t worry about it BWS.

      I just watched the highlights on AVTV and Vlaar really wasn’t very good. Ok, I know it’s just the highlights but even so. I love that goal from Luna though, he just took off like a hare as soon he saw Wiemann had the ball and before anyone else could react. Fantastic stuff.
