Spurs have taken more points than anybody bar Liverpool since Mourinho took over. They were incredible fortunate against us.

I'd love us to batter both Man United and Arsenal.
wouldn't we all - however the reality is we couldn't do that when we were a decent side let alone the team that can't beat Bournemouth home or away - I admire your optimism however

Xmas 1989, Aston Villa 3 Man Utd 0, Aston Villa 2 Arsenal 1.

I know what you mean though, It hasnít happened much since!

Those were the first two games Iíd attended at Villa Park for a while after living in Somerset due to work. God knows how many of us were crammed into the Holte End for the Man Utd game but what a day that was.

Yes it was the most packed Iíd experienced up to that point.

Our record has to improve at some point! I trust Smith to at least try and win.

Not sure mentioning Southampton's home record was such a good idea.  Comments like that have a way of coming back and biting you on the arse.

Especially when our away record is diabolical.

Bit silly from Dean. Do the talking on the pitch. These things do not help.

Yep, pretty much always.

Then again, it may help to add a tad more pressure on them. I hope the latter but fear the former.

They are both totally different propositions now though.  Really should be nothing to fear.

A week before a cup final ? Thatís not going to happen. He is here for the rest of the season, at least.

Yeah, I wouldn't have minded getting rid after the last Southampton game. You are never going to play brilliantly every week at this end of the table, but feel he has done enough to keep his job until the end of the season now, barring a hammering next week coupled with a disastrous run of league results.
