And so here we go…again. (As opposed to ‘we go again` © that dull, dour manager).

This really is (and I guess we keep saying similar) a massive game for Aston Villa.

We were resplendent against Wolves, then woeful (ish) against QPR. Which team will we see today? It`s all at their feet really isn`t it as – as opposed to at home – you know the away fans will not let the team down in their support.

A win and all the confidence should come flowing back. A loss and …………….

Roger W on twitter is predicting a loss would be the candle of hope being blown out. Very poetic!

Not totally still, but even more than now, it would depend on other results wouldn`t it?

We still are the form team, I think with the nature of the QPR defeat, a good few fans are forgetting that.

The lads at the Villa View also know just how huge this game is in their video preview:

Bruce on the Championship, the twists and turns to come, and he talks about Bolton:

And from our forum thread:

Obviously a must win for us today. Automatic promotion looks a remote possibility now but if we can get 23/24 points from the remaining games then you never know. All we can look at is hopefully winning today and Derby doing us a favour tomorrow. Bolton will not be a pushover at home, having beaten Cardiff and Bristol City, and recently drew with Fulham. However, we should have the quality to win as long as the players show the energy and desire that was so lacking on Tuesday.

Villan84 added:

What I am thinking is, if a team like QPR who had nothing to play for, embarrassed us that day, then how difficult is it going to be for us to beat Bolton who are fighting for survival? Also, seeing QPR beat us, those teams that we are going to play, who might have been nervous to play us after how we hammered Wolves, will now be confident of beating us and that will make them harder to beat.

Pride of Lions finished:

Everyone is talking about twists and turns, which there will be, but it always appears it’s us that is twisting and turning. We could have a long wait if we’re waiting for other clubs to twist and turn.

Basically, we can’t afford many more, if any, slip ups.

Come on VILLA!!!!!
