Finally...a win at Villa Park!

After last week's struggle vs. Blackburn... I certainly was not confident going into this morning's home match vs Fulham.  But after getting substituted in late in the 2nd half, Andreas Weimann knocked in the winning goal in extra time and Villa won 1-nil.  These 3 points were needed to keep out of the relegation zone.  I thought it was great having Albrighton, Gardner, Bannan, and Weimann in there.  They brought so much more energy to the pitch.

Here is the call by Jack Woodward ("The Voice of the Villa")
