No you're right...I was thinking of Birmingham but then I remembered that they beat Arsenal!

But I'm sure that Arsenal is a big club that frequently is winning trophies and competitions *checks history books*. Oh, actually it seems it is around 7 or 8 years since Arsenal won anything because finishing 4th in the league is not actually a trophy

Hold on there, don't forget about earlier this summer when we won a prestigious trophy that looks like a bear (captained to glory by long-serving Arsenal legend/Hannover 96 legend Johan Djourou)

Well that's us relegated then 

We sign 1 player that we need with no Prem experience & loan a player that we don't need.

If we can stay up & keep Lamberts players, then next season will be much more interesting.

You will stay up, I thought it even when Liverpool beat you the other week there was enough in your squad, particularly upfront to get enough points in the remaining fixtures. I believe your youth squad is very good too, so it could be a promising season next year for you.

Yeah I see how you start jumping ship when our form improve just a couple of months after saying we were doomed

In the end it was our form against the teams around us along with the likes of Gabby helping out Benetake which kept us up.

Lambert is the perfect man for the job imo, and if we add a few in the summer, tighter up at the back and keep Bentake then next season could look or the more promising,

I hope Benteke sticks at Villa, will be good to see a player get regular first team football instead of being on the bench at City or Chelsea!

Have been very happy with our business this summer and keeping Bentake at least for another year is the icing on the cake.

It is a blow starting with Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, still might get a few points out of those and big games like that might get the players up for the season early.

With just hours to go once again I am happy with our business in the summer, and how pre-season has gone. Lambert is one of the sharpest young managers in English football and I think our faith in him is going to start to pay off with an improved finish this time. Will go for a tenth place finish and maybe a decent cup run as a bonus.

As for Arsenal away tomorrow, well it isn't the worse first game as the pressure will be all on them and we have a decent record there too. They will still be favourites, if they get an early goal it would not surprise me to see a convincing Gunners win, but I can see causing problems and hopefully getting a draw which would be a good first result of the season. Will go for a 2-2 draw.

A great start for Villa, was pleased with the result and the performance more so in the second half. We had lots of luck and 3-1 maybe did flatter us, but the manager get the tactics spot on, Gabby's pace was a real problem for Arsenal and there were some good performances thorough out the team. What impressed me most was the reponse to going a goal down so early, last season we may well have carved and lost that game 3-0.

A good first week all in all for me, even with two defeats we looked good against Chelsea and at did improve in the second half against Liverpool, but still deserved to lose overall. Anyway we have three points from a run of fixtures which could have delivered zero.

There is much promise from the new signings too. The cup is next then we have a weekend off which will be good considering we have had two mid-week games back to back. Next League Fixture is home to Newcastle a game we really should be looking to win.

Nice to get though a cup tie against a lower league side with little effort required (something Villa don't do often enough). Just a shame we have drawn one of the favourites in Spurs in the third round, really would like to have avoided that sort of team until later in the cup. Anyway we did beat Man City last year at the same stage so you never know.

Well this weekend's match against Newcastle should be interesting, it is a game I am hoping to win. Both teams are roughly mid-table teams, but we are in a more confident frame of mind going into the game, but then we don't always perform that well at home, and maybe they are starting to turn a corner. I tend to think if we score early then it could be a comfortable win, and it would be a result we can kick on from, but you just never know in this game.

A good battling win yesterday for us. Guzan had a great game and is looking like one of the best keepers in the league right now. It was a big plus to keep a clean sheet and to get our new striker off the mark. We were holding on a bit at the end and kept getting the ball away too easily, but its a win which sets us up nicely for a tough week in both league and cup.

Fuck Yes! Delighted with the win today and the players showed great character to come back twice and bource back from the hammering in mid-week. Suddenly it doesn't look like such a poor start and the good thing is we have got all the top teams out the way for awhile now.

Hull away tomorrow which will be interesting. In the past it is the sort of game we might have lost coming off the back of a great result (typical Villa and all that. Also with them having a good start and being good at home I expect it to be a tricky match, but hopefully we should just edge it.

Their best player, Brady is out. Should make it a lot easier.

There's something about Villa that I can't help but admire. Think it started towards the end of last season (and has carried on into this one) - Lambert's willingness to take a gamble. Not in a Pardew-esque manner (ie taking a huge risk 'cos you've got fuck all idea what else to do) but in a calculated, considered 'this might just work' kind of way.

Another in different performance from Villa yesterday. Seems like the strikers are struggling to recreate the form from last season, at least the defence are starting to gel. To me West Ham away given their shakey start was one we could aim to win, but I guess there isn't much to chose between the sides. At the moment we seem to be lifting ourselves for the bigger clubs, but taking our foot off the gas for the matches against the sides likely to be competing in our area of the table.

The next month will be key, we have a decent run of games, so if we do get a couple of wins that will shoot us up the table and should see us safe from another season scrapping at the bottom, but a few bad results and it could be another long season.

Important win for us at the weekend, we made very hard work of it, and Benteke seems to be suffering a bit of second season blues, plus the injuries don't help, but we got the job done and overall I am pleased with our current position in the league and hope that some of the new signings add a bit of depth to the team/squad. It is good to break the goal draught and winnerless run going into the international break.

Typically inconsistent Villa, we can comeback and get a good point away to a strong West Brom, yet can't beat one of the three worse teams at home. I by the sounds of it, it was another Villa Park stinker, maybe we should play our home games elsewhere from now on.

Its another West Brom for Villa tomorrow at Southampton, if you give me a draw now I would bite your hand off right now. Difference is they are much better at the back, so if we start that we did at the Hawthrons and conceed it will be hard to see us getting anything.

FUCK YEAH! You really can't predict our form this season can you? We seem to be going along quite nicely right now and should be well safe from the bottom three. Bet we go and lose at Fulham now, but fuck I am happy right now, can't wait to see the highlights.

Yeah no surprise at the defeat today, expected Fulham to raise their game with the new manager, and again shows we still have inconsistatcies. We will bounce back against that mid-table club Man Utd next weekend.

Excellent point for Villa on Saturday and more importantly a much improved performance. At times against the bigger teams this season we have shown that on our day we can be pretty decent. Still a bit of work to do before we can say we are clear of danger, a derby win against West Brom would go a long way, won't be easy though, has draw written all over it
