Aston Villa win and Andreas Weimann gets his first goal for the club

You can't write them better than that; deep into added on time and substitute Gary Gardner forces a save from Mark Schwarzer but faster than a fast thing, Andreas Weimann is there to pounce on the loose ball and scramble it over the line for the winner.

Aston Villa move up to fourteenth place and claim their first win at Villa Park since November last year. You really don't write them better than that and his name has been added to the man of the match vote to the right.


And it wasn't a bad game. It wasn't a great game either, but we won and you have to be happy. The first half was all us and the second was mostly Fulham but only just.

But based on number of shots, we deserved it. I think it was six-one to us with shots on target and a goal every six shots on target sounds about right.

So take a breather - Aston Villa won. It will convince some that Alex McLeish is the man to take Aston Villa forward, but we all know he isn't. It does however give him some breathing space. Or maybe what it actually does is get him closer to the sack? With safety must surely come a new manager.

I'm off now for some food and I'm gong to have a beer or two later while smiling about the three points and the Andreas Weimann goal.
