Very pleased with the result and performance at Liverpool. We created some good chances first half and could have been more than one up come the break, but then defended our lead very well second half and restricted them to very few chances. The new signings seem to be settling well, and we still have a couple to come back from injuries so at the moment I am really content.

It was the start of a very interesting run of games, wasn't it. Do you think they can sneak another upset against Arsenal at the weekend? I'm thinking with the Gunners just coming off a 2-2 against City, then having Dortmund away tomorrow there is a chance of catching them while they are still recovering at the weekend.

If you can get 5 points off the next 4 games then I think there is a chance that Europe might beckon again.

Don't start coming out with things like that you will put the kabush on us

After the last couple of seasons I just want us to get to enough points to have us pretty much safe by christmas and then see how high we can finish after that. Doubt we are ready for Europe just yet anyway.

I was impressed by Villa at the weekend they looked well organised and defended really well. They didn't let Liverpool into the game at all.

Loved how brilliantly annoying Senderos was against Balotelli too.

We've just given a new three year deal to ALAN HUTTON! That is what you call pushing the boat out

Was quite pleased for twenty minutes today, but then out classed by a very good side, we never recoved after that. It was important that we didn't totally go under and lose by four or five second half. If we finish mid-table this season I will be happy, and so far I have seen enough to suggest that we can do that.

Anti-climax this weekend for us. On to another easy fixture against City on Saturday Will go for a draw there to stop the steady semi-decline

I like Aston Villa this season. I believe you could get more than one point from City...

This is how I see the Villa story

Start of season Lambert under pressure

16 Aug 1-0 Win vs Stoke
23 Aug 0-0 Draw vs Newcastle
31 Aug 2-1 Win vs Hull
13 Sep 1-0 Win vs Liverpool

17 Sep Lambert signs new 4 year contract

20 Sep 3-0 Loss vs Arsenal
27 Sep 3-0 Loss vs Chelsea

If we could only find some reason that good start might have fizzled out

Good news to hear than Benteke will be back in the squad for the weekend. No need to rush him back I would give him the last twenty minutes
maybe a bit more if we are struggling. It is good timing, as there is a lack of cutting edge up front which we have so far got away with due
to the team being well set up and able to grid out tight wins, but we can only do that for long.

Think Villa were really poor yesterday. Would say it was the worse performance out of the three recent defeats. Of course we had to try and contain
City up to a point, but I think we showed them too much respect, whereas last season when we beat them a big part of the win was how we got
about them in midfield, but at the same time still defended well and hit them on the counter. Yesterday, we failed to get that balance. Of course
losing Gabby in the warm up didn't help, and I don't know why CZG keeps getting games. Still we remain in the top ten, but really could
do with getting at least a point at Goodison next time out. For us the International break may prove a good thing as Benteke and Vlaar maybe
able to get back to full fitness.

If Villa can get a point at Goodison tomorrow I will be pleased as it would stop our mini-slide. It is a tough place to go, and Everton need the
points a bit more than us right now so it will not be easy. Think we need to make it tough for them to play in the early exchanges and get
the crowd on their back, then look to grab something late on. Vlaar is fit again for us which is good news, but it maybe a changed line-up
at the back which isn't the best thing when going to Everton.
