thought it was almost an embarrasing performance. should of been 2-0 down b4 half time. the red cards certainly helped, but very very average

By no means spectacular but we got the job done.

Apart from the Lovech goal, the defence was quite robust again and Cuellar soon settled in. We definitely missed Ashley Young and his pace but the pitch looked heavy having had a lot of rain and so both the players and the ball seemed to move slowly. Just hope the players won't feel the effects on Sunday at West Brom.

All in all, we can't complain and with a comfortable cushion, we should be able to rest some key players in the return leg as before.

Very poor to be honest!!
But its better to play badly and win 3-1
Than play really well and win 1-0!

Up the Villa!

Looks like bar an amazing comeback we are into the next round. Ok we played poorly but still won 3-1, that tells you alot about the team we are becoming. How many times have teams like United etc played poorly and still won. Im not saying we are on their level but we are on our way to become a very good team.

If we had all our regular on the field I think it would have been a different affair, Ashley Young is a hugh threat, and Carew can get on the end of most of the crosses. Curtis Davies would have been more comfortable in the defense, but why bother making those players tired (I know Carew is injured) when we can give debuts to some of the lads and still win comfortably.

not a great performance but that isnt entirely relevant & I cant see litex scoring 3 at villa park so we should be fine. If we can play poorly and come out with wins this season i wont be too fussed

Clearly they played the game with Sunday in mind, hence Ashley and big John left behind. Reo-Coker was man of the match for me; made best use of a slow pitch. Job done.

We were very poor but who cares 3 goals away. another victory on a poor pitch. Lets get 3 points on sunday against the baggies.

Aston Villa is the most organised team outside the big 4 and they will be a handful for a lot of teams this season.

How unlucky were Litex Lovech to lose 3-1. the bit of the match i saw on 5, they were actully an OK team

Ive got to say fair play to Litex. Before they were reduced 10, then 9, men they carried the game to us. Villa were truely awful but got the job done, admittedly with a few scares, but the return leg should be a formality, i hope!!!! Martin O'Neills Claret Blue army!!!!
