International Update



Few blues players took part in the World Cup Qauls over the past week, but lets take a look on immediate effects.

Tainio may miss the villa game Due to being kicked in the calf whilst in action, Espinoza played for Ecuador as did Benitez (who scored), worth nothing especially as he had to be taken off on the hour mark, Tired?

Continuing with the villa theme, Carsley is out to avenge last year`s unspeakable result. Without being a Blue nose himself, he comes from a long line of us; the understanding is without doubt present in his mind about the importance of the result.

Take a look back to that 5-1 defeat, Blues were nothing short of shocking the squad was in a desolate state, falling apart and the club really didn't look like it had any sort of direction, away from St. Andrews.

Now I say that because being a season ticket holder I was quite impressed with how despite the lack of quality the players always seemed to take points from the 90.

The championship season was just a sluggish test with blues passed with a disturbing low grade, but like many kids would tell you a GCSE D is still a pass despite being worthless. I imagine that's how many blues fans feel, as if it was a year of their lives they won`t get back, which is probably why they stayed at home.

What I will say is that is over and done with, and I like the Villa being so bloody confident, after all they've earned it. But for so many years the derby was our play ground, the time were the Blue side of Brum gate crashed the often delusional expectations of Aston Villa; those times I miss.

Anyone that stays at home, Shame on you; when we win, don't celebrate because I would argue you were not a part of it. I do appreciate certain circumstances and in those cases I wish you all the best and hope the prices drop come November.
