Villa on to the final four!

It was exciting to be able to listen to the live commentary of today’s match thanks to the generosity of AVFC (normally this service requires that you have a subscription). I could only listen to ¾ of the match because of work commitments, but t he audio commentary by Jack Woodward and Andy Blair was magnificent! JW even referenced m e a couple of times during the broadcast as I contributed to the live chat unfolding on AV Live (live text description of the action and live input from others around the world following the match in real time. I think an AVTV subscription may be in my future!

Villa beat Pompey 4-2 on goals from Emile Heskey (12’), James Milner (27’), Stewart Downing (74’), and Ashley Young (88’). Now it is on to the semi-finals of the Carling Cup. UP THE VILLA!
