So two days after a disappointing defeat we have a really tough away fixture with away form that is nothing short of abysmal.
90 – It could have BEEN so much worse but the only credit are the magnificent fans who stayed until the bitter end, those guys should be the only Villans with their heads held up high – I SALUTE you
77 – BAD news if we did not need even more, Delph injured with his knee and now Pires on for NRC, JOKE
69 – Lichaj yellow card
61 – fonz header wide and subs have added some energy to the game
58 – Milner on to good reception form the remaining villans, predictable he will score
54 – Balotelli hat trick, simple penalty after albrighton trip, Albrighton and Bannan off for fonz and delph
16:04 – No changes, out early first half kicks off
HALF TIME – Just abysmal, what more can you say …. I am shocked just how lifeless and gutless we are and a hurting chelsea next, if Man City really want this could be 10.
40 – a MAN CITY save. lets rejoice !!!
35 – embarrassed to watch this shit, but will continue to watch, Houllier should resign after the game, Villa fans spot on with ‘your not fit to wear the shirt’
26 – Simple city goal, Freidel parries out to Balotelli, Villa are a disgrace
25 – Nothing to really update, nothing from us, total City domination
16 – Warnock booked for foul on Silva
13 – ANOTHER set piece goal conceded, free header, Houllier out .
15:07 – Clear penalty by Lichaj on Barotelli who then scores, could be very difficult day. the defending is just plain awful under Houllier
15:05 – slow start by both sides, Villa holding a slow paced City very well
15:00 – Kick Off
14:45 – Maybe an injury but Hogg not on bench, the lesser spotted Osborne is
14:30 – got a feeling we will be in this game, I see no thrashing, just can not see how we can keep a clean sheet
14:15 – Subs: Guzan, Clark, Hogg, Delph, Delfouneso, Pires, Herd – Carew, Dunne and Ireland being totally frozen out
14:10 – Villa’s team with Young still out and Heskey injured is
14:05 – If you care Man City’s team, Tevez Hamstring injury
Hart, Richards, Zaba, Lescott, Kompany, de Jong, Vieira, Yaya Toure, Johnson, Silva, Balotelli.
13:55 – From twitter
Balotelli starts for #mcfc. No Barry / Milner. Dunne and Ireland not in #avfc squad.
13:45 – Fully expecting Petrov to start probably along side NRC and hogg in a 4-5-1, do not expect Young to make it.
