Must be in the Prem - yes, I know football did exist before then, but I need to give myself a cut-off point... I'm looking for eye-catching beauties rather than important goals, although I recognise Lowton's was both
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:21:38 AM
How would you rate Lowton's season? Ignore the wonder goals. I think we have the makings of a great RB.
by Adam4/8/2013 11:21:42 AM
Petrov from the halfway line
by G4/8/2013 11:21:52 AM
was it derby?

Re: best villa goals - Angel against Chelsea!

weimann last season was it stoke at home?
by John M4/8/2013 11:22:35 AM
Maradona10, He was his usual grounded self. Not getting too carried away. Bit like he has been all season. Can't recall him mentioning Fulham game specifically.
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:22:39 AM
Tim, I'm a writer not a fighter!
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:23:00 AM
Savo's against Leeds in the cup was a bit special
by Rocco4/8/2013 11:23:20 AM
Der Hammer v West Brom?
by Adam4/8/2013 11:23:26 AM
Bent vs Arsenal @ Emirates was beautiful technique
by G4/8/2013 11:23:31 AM
weimann at anfield surely
by cuddlewithkendrick4/8/2013 11:23:38 AM
I think the Benteke back pass to Weimann goal up at Anfield was one of the best Villa PLgue goals - cos of build up & skill
by JulieBayleyIFA4/8/2013 11:23:44 AM
Barry vs Spurs, 25 yarder with his right foot
by G4/8/2013 11:23:57 AM
Merson against Cov, when we sent then down. Happy Days !!
by Leam Villa4/8/2013 11:24:02 AM
Dalian Atkinson would get my vote. But Alan Mcinally against Millwall in the league cup was a bit good as well.
by Paul4/8/2013 11:24:11 AM
Julie, difficult one. He does like to have a presence on the training pitches and to get out there and get amongst the players, but then again the role of his assistant Ian Culverhouse on the practice field is also important. I'd call him both!
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:24:13 AM
Did anyone mention a certain G Cahill volley :-)
by G4/8/2013 11:25:21 AM
robbie keane's had a few
by cuddlewithkendrick4/8/2013 11:25:25 AM
cahill overhead kick v blues
by Adam4/8/2013 11:25:33 AM
G, it's more than that, but it is tough to compete. No such thing as a level playing field in English football. Best way to compete is to win something/get in the Champions League to get the cash. But until you've got the cash it's almost impossible to win things/get in Champions League. Catch 22.
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:25:42 AM
What areas of the squad do you think should/will be strengthened in the summer if we stay up? I think we need a new LB, CM, RM/LM & ST.
by Jon4/8/2013 11:26:26 AM
Is Lambert the man for the job YES or NO?
by Deadly4/8/2013 11:26:35 AM
I don't know about everyone else, but our struggle this season has made me realise how much I love the club! More so than if we were pushing for Europe. The team spirit, the resilience, the way the lads celebrate every goal like it's the winner in the champions league final. We are a proper club with a manger doing things the right way and we deserve to stay up.
by Mikey4/8/2013 11:26:56 AM
Leam Villa, some will be easier than others. The problem Villa have is that many of that list are on long-ish contracts on big money. Dunne is out of contract this summer, however, while Makoun has agreed a permanent move to Rennes
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:27:11 AM
by Adam4/8/2013 11:27:47 AM
Deadly - Lambert is the only man for the job!
by Keith4/8/2013 11:28:20 AM
Also Tony Morley won goal of the season in 1981 when we won the title, for his goal at everton. Don't forget that one!
by Paul4/8/2013 11:28:29 AM
definate YES, if we keep PL for 4-5 years I reckon we'll do big things.
by Lichfield Villan4/8/2013 11:28:37 AM
Adam, I think it is remarkable that in his first season in the Prem, Lowton has played every minute of every game. That is a testament to his form and fitness. There have been lulls in his performances (and if we're been critical, he might have done better for Stoke's goal), but I think he has been Villa's most consistent defender this season
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:29:02 AM
Cheers Mat - think it's becomimg more apparent that true Man-Managers like MON are slowly being replaced by more coaching focused managers
by JulieBayleyIFA4/8/2013 11:29:55 AM
Definitely left-back and central midfield, probably centre half too
by Mat Kendrick4/8/2013 11:30:24 AM
Re Lowton agree with comments. If we were to sign a new left back then back four with Lowton Vlaar & Clark would be good enough.
by Adam4/8/2013 11:30:28 AM
If Stoke go down maybe we could go for Shawcross, if Lerner has found his wallet by then of course.
by Keith4/8/2013 11:32:43 AM
I'm afraid that's all we have time for today, so many great questions sorry if we didn't get round to yours today. And thanks for all you goal suggestions, make sure you read tomorrow's Mail to see who made it into Mat's list.
by Birmingham Mail4/8/2013 11:33:58 AM
Right, thanks for your contributions. Nice to do a webchat with Villa fans with smiles on their faces. All the best.
