birmingham came to play football...we beat them. villa came to play football. we beat them. having said that, the early goals in both games may have forced them to play a more open game...

entertainment at fratton - that is what we want to see, hopefully this will continue until the end of the season, a few minor tweaks made in the summer and fratton can become a real, real fortress again, which in fairness it is hardly not a fortress is it as weve only lost twice at home so far this season...

Both Brummie sides came to play & that meant so could we. It's when they come for a point, like Sunderland & it's a dour event as we try to break them down. Let's hope this open football applies to WBA. They like to play & that should benefit us. Here's hoping for a third midlands victory in a month.

Be good won't it matt.. just hope it's not a caase of two out of three aint bad... sure it won't be but we must not rest on our laurels .. At this rate the FA Cup and maybe even 5th spot can be ours if we keep getting the result and maybe Everton and/or Liverpool slip up...
