Post your comment about Aston Villa Football Club

 I am just hearing now about what was said. Everyone has their opinions in football. I am at a club with big ambitions. We know where we want to get and that's right up there. Both clubs missed out on the top four last season but Manchester City are better equipped to get there. Everything is set up here - from the backroom staff to the players. You want to be at a club that is successful and I can see Manchester City going to the top of the English game and winning trophies.

 The missed penalty changes things to a certain extent. We started very, very brightly but it was probably the second and third goals which killed us just before half-time. Momentum is a big thing in football. The players felt hard done by at 3-0 but I thought if we got next goal we could get back into the game. But it wasn't to be.

 We started the season well last week so it's disappointing to get well beaten by a decent Newcastle [United] side. It might have been a bit too much playing a couple of young kids who had done very, very well... maybe I was a bit wrong with my team selection.

 It's been nice so far but I am a reasonably intelligent man that I would know whether to accept or decline the job. I have no problem with the timescale as Mr Lerner will be looking seriously at what he wants to do.

 I may have been forced out but I couldn't be more happy to be at Aston Villa. Richard Dunne is a good example of what can happen after leaving Manchester City to join Villa. A year on I can see how happy he is at Villa and I'm hoping that I will be as happy in a year's time. Richard was a huge part of Manchester City and it was a great shock to see him leave. It was as big a shock to him as everyone else but he could not have come to a better club as he proved with his performances last season. For me this is a positive, as this is exactly how I want it to be. I'm still young and hopefully Villa will get the best of me and I am now looking forward to the season.
