MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIโ€™m not a very popular man in high places and perhaps referees have been told to keep a close eye on my players. โ€œI feel Villa are being judged more by the fact that Iโ€™m the manager than by what they have actually done. โ€œI have praised and criticised referees in the past, and the two fines I had have not helped the clubs Iโ€™ve been with. โ€œIt is a case of giving a person a bad name and it sticks. โ€œYou have to remember that when I took over Villa were in a desperate position and it was obvious that our play had to be equally desperate to get results. โ€œBut since we began to be consistently successful our tackling and general play has been less erratic. โ€œOf the 12 bookings [under Tommy Docherty in 12 games], I would say that only two have been for bad fouls. Four were for kicking the ball away after refereesโ€™ decisions and, on Saturday Micky Wright was booked for obstruction. โ€œThis trouble is something we must try to overcome. โ€œLeeds got involved in it three years again but that is all forgotten now.โ€ Tommy Docherty.
