Well aren’t we a happy bunch? Two wins against the two sides we normally fail to beat has given everyone a huge lift…. Is perhaps the understatement of the year! In all seriousness, it can be easy to forget that we’re involved in a relegation battle, writes Stephen Goldsmith. But let’s just put the Cherry Lambrini and bottles of 20/20 on ice for a moment. A loss would result in Villa being behind us only on goal difference and you just can’t rule out Wigan at all in this situation.
But confidence has prevailed when it comes to positive attitude, and why not? We deserve to to be optimistic after the season we’ve had and have just beaten Newcastle and Everton. God, I could write that sentence over and over. And how relieving it is to approach this game knowing a defeat still leaves it very much in our hands, it really is a scenario that seemed highly unlikely three weeks ago. We’ve had a production meeting and have taken on board some new ideas regarding the podcast and the direction it is to go in (more on that later) so this could be the last of its type in the set format it currently airs at. It may not be. We’ll see. Joining me this week:
- Richard Mason from The Northern Echo makes his second appearance.
- Founder of blog Aston Villa Life ( http://www.astonvillalife.com/ ) Matt Turvey joins us on the phone to chat all things Villa.
- Gareth Barker, as always, introduces us to all things Sunderland through his eyes.
