Saw a Redditch based truck today driving outside Gatwick and the inside of the cab was decked out with Bluenose flags and memorabilia.

What people ? What events ?

Oh come on, what about “9 minutes in dreamland”?

I don't think I will ever tire of that quote. They really don't help themselves sometimes.  ;D

It's actually a real quote? I assumed it was a joke.

Wasn't a great goal technically.

But Dalian's first against Man U at Wembley always sticks out for me.

Seemed to take an age to go in.


I always thought Bruce would run back and block it but it was deceptively quick.

However the one touch passing and Dalians first touch on his run in were all signs of a great goal from Atkinsons early teams, it was just the scuffed shot that makes people think technically it wasn't a great goal when it was.

Due to age, I've had the pleasure of seeing some really cracking goals by the Villa, too many to choose but one that does stick out was a goal by Pat McMahon in the last minute/added time against Bristol Rovers in the League Cup quarter final replay that gave us a one-nil win to set up a semi-final against Manure, and we all know what happened there. *

* It was a scorcher that gave the Sheppard, the ex-Albion keeper no chance.  If you can find the programme from the next home game there's a great photo of it.

Think I would go for Carbone's goal against Dirty in the FA Cup. a brilliant strike and we won 3-2.

Think they were top of the League at the time.

Gabby's header against Manure for the 1-0 win was fantastic too.

Alan McInally  in the League Cup at home to Milwall in 1988 was a brilliant goal, he was on fire at the time.

Dalian's at Selhurst Park, Steve Hunt and Simon Stainrod recreating the Ernie Hunt and Willie Carr donkey kick in our 2-0 win over Leicester at Villa Park and Tony Daley scored a few beauties too. But my favourite Villa player of all time is Tony Morley and his two goals in Berlin were very different but equally brilliant. Tony Morley for me.

He scored two and one was fantastic and the other one was decent too. Neil Ruddock also scored a cracker for Millwall in that game. It was like a two man goal of the month competition.

There are loads to choose from.
If pushed I’d probably go for Savo’s League Cup Final vrs Leeds.

Or Chris Nichol, or Brian Little, oh, decisions 😂

He scored a carbon copy of that Liverpool goal in a game a couple of years earlier in a match shown on the Big Match Revisited a couple of weeks back. I am trying to recall who the opposition were.

The one he got away to Everton in the 'Tony Morley goal of the season' game was quite similar in that he was put through with acres ahead of him and only the 'keeper to beat.
