*Birmingham Evening Mail*
Thursday, 11 April 1991

LUCKLESS Villa are beginning to resemble a diligently cultivated business which Is suddenly ruined by a stock market crash. Jo Venglos's careful Investors suffered their second Capital City collapse in a week at Loftus Road last night, just when their endeavours promised to yield a rich dividend. Against champions-elect Arsenal eight days ago, the surrender of three goals in six minutes proved the difference between respectability and humiliation in an anticipated defeat. The slump against Don Howe's rampant Rangers was not quite so spectacular, but the effect was considerably more dramatic. Substitute Brad Allen and defender Andy Tilson
