And Mr Snodgrass is totally right once again…! He`s said that the team know they have ten cup finals coming up following the fantastic win over Wolves at the weekend.
There really is no time to bask in any glory is there? It`s right back to it tonight v QPR and we simply cannot have any slip ups having been so very convincing at the weekend. Confidence must not – and I`m sure with their unity now will not – be replaced with complacency. I sound like I`ve swallowed a football management cliché book don`t I?
Our Vital Villa player of February Vital Villa player of February told us ‘We`ve got a tremendous dressing room – you can see that on the park – and with the backing we receive you can see we are all in this together and creating an unbelievable spirit and bond.’
And added in the The Birmingham Mail
‘It`s ten cup finals, isn`t it? Every game is huge now because it is the last quarter of the league. Everyone is on edge thinking can we get that automatic place? We still have to play Cardiff, they still have to play Wolves. There are going to be twists and turns.“
And after Wolves he says they just have to get going once more “It was massive for us today (Wolves victory on Saturday) but we need to go again, that is the Championship. We have to roll our sleeves up and get ready for a tough game, which QPR will be.”
As regular on The Villa View said on twitter,
Disappointing to see only 30K expected tonight. Come on, this team actually deserves our support ! I know it’s midweek but come on ! Cardiff HAS to sell out even though it’s midweek. Come on #Villa fans get us over the line.

He`s right. We have ten cup finals, we are chasing promotion, the Villa team need us as much as we need them.
What are out ten cup finals?
Saturday 17th March. Bolton Wanderers Away (On Sky Sports)
Saturday 31st March. Hull City Away (On Sky Sports)
Tuesday 3rd April. Reading at home.
Saturday 7th April. Norwich City away (12.30 kick off)
Tuesday 10th April. Cardiff City at home. On Sky Sports but come on, this could be an absolute stormer of a game and a very crucial one!
Friday 13th April. Leeds United at home. On Sky Sports but come on, this could be…oh, I`ve already said that above!
Saturday 21st April. Ipswich Town away.
Saturday 28th April. Derby County at home, another gem of a match.
And the season closes for us, hopefully as Champions (!) away at Millwall on 6th May.
And Bruce talks about the huge difference the fans make as well:
🏟💬 "Villa Park at the weekend reminded me of the good old days, which was good to see. We had an unbelievable crowd behind us. It's not been like that for a few years."
