Match Preview

Cant see us getting past Blackburn the way ive seen them play lately. They;ve had the sort of season Villa fans would hope we could have but no. We have 3 away games coming up in a row now but are still undefeated since Halloween at Man City. Away form since then-

vs. Sunderland (3-1 Win)
vs. Newcastle (1-1 Draw)
vs. Bolton (1-1 Draw)
vs. Fulham (3-3 Draw)
vs. West Brom (2-1 Win)
vs. Tottenham (0-0 Draw)
vs. Middlesbrough (4-0 Win)
vs. Charlton (0-0 Draw)

Impressive record, we;ve managed 3 clean sheets in the last 3 away games and 2 in a row now after the 1-0 over Pompey. This will give us the belief going into whats usually a tough game against Blackburn but we have a good record against them.

Mellberg will return from suspension, Bouma could continue at LB; Jlloyd has flu or something I read. Phillips should start after his performance on Saturday- Baros no doubt will partner him with Moore/Angel on the bench.

Game is live on PremPlus for 7 squid, prob will end up buying it now I got some work lined up- hopefully we can continue our away form and get maximum points :thumbsup:

Yep, we've missed some real chances that could come back to haunt us! But at least we have been positive and gone out to attack.

lol what a waste of £8. We played well, created at least 5 clear goalscoring chances but put away zero. Baros can be good but he can be awful too like he was today, 1on1 with Friedel twice- pokes the ball at him twice. Free header from 5 yards- over. But if we play like that we;ve got a chance on Tuesday

How the hell you missed all these chances, I will never know. It could have easily been a victory for you.
