Olof Mellberg is looking for a win on Wednesday to give Villa fans something to cheer about a mere 5 1/2 weeks since our last home game!

The bearded wonder said: ‘It’s not only home games, it’s been a massive gap overall. It’s strange in the middle of the season to have such a huge break. It was strange before the Fulham game to have three weeks off in February, which is right when you’re in the middle of the season and then after that we’ve had another break before Arsenal. But we’ve been strong over our last few home games and now we’ve got six home games and four away games left.’

‘If we can try to nick a few points away and keep winning at home, we’ll hopefully climb to the top half of the table.’

He also says things are changing for the better at Villa: ‘It’s been a positive atmosphere the whole season – even though we haven’t really had the results we wanted in the last few months. I think it was a positive change before the season, with the new manager coming in and the new owner coming in. We’ve seen things happening with new signings and the training ground is coming along, which they’ve been talking about for many years.’

‘There are good things happening and in the end it’s up to us players to perform on the pitch and give the club results as well.’

  • What do we expect players to say – I hope we lose! Olaf – lead by example and make sure your mates sweat blood & tears for the cause. We’ve been talking the talk but can we walk the walk! Can’t believe I got that in a sentence 🙂 UTV

  • I’d love it if we could beat either team, we need a result to mark that we’ve arrived. But as Spurs found out this weekend, the top four are pulling further away every season.

  • Lets make sure we beat the Arsenal. We all need a lift after Craven Cottage. As performances go, that left many who made the trek down there feeling totally deflated.

  • C’mon Ollie – Make VP a fortress once again! I’ve just been talking to a Gooners at our London office, and good news… This season Ar$£n@l have been useless at set pieces!! UTV!

  • Our home form has been pretty dismal ow for some time, and most clubs must journey to Villa Park at least expecting a point. Allied to the fact that we only have one away win all season, its no wonder we’re slipping down the table.
