MY THOUGHTS: b4 the game wen i saw the VILLA lineup i was quite surprised that we wer restin sum of our bigga name stars n playin wiv ROBERT PIRES along side a fairly attack minded youthful look 2 the team n i was sceptical of the changes but my fears wer soon put 2 the back of my mind as it proved 2 b a gr8 choice by HOU as they attacked wiv flair n looked superb on the ball n wen the scoreline read 1-1 a moment 2 cheerish from PIRES who was magnificent in the 1st half n wen he got his 1st eva goal in a claret n blue shirt the roof of VILLA PARK flew off n from then on blackburn neva really posed a threat so it wasnt a surprise 2 c NATHAN DELFOUNSO step up 2 bang in VILLA'S 3RD as the lads in claret n blue ran riot ova BLACKBURN n i 4 one was jumpin 4 joy by halftime in the 2nd half the BAKER challenge wasnt exactly worthy of a red card but the ref sent him off which gav us a nervy 2nd half but the lads who confidence was ridin high again after back to back wins in the league saw em hold owt strongly n im proud of em all n VILLA'S FA CUP MARCH CONTINUES IN2 THE NEXT ROUND COME ON! al eyes now fall on TUESDAY NIGHTS BIG CLASH AGAINST PREMIER LEAGUE GIANTS MAN UTD UTV
