ON THIS DAY

Villa miss two penalties and concede an injury time equaliser to draw with Fulham whilst David O'Leary ducks the post match press conference once again to leave Roy Aitken to hang Juan Pablo รngel out to dry. A curious motivational policy as a manager who has bemoaned his lack of 'firepower' all season hands a debut to his sole transfer window acquisition, midfielder Eric Djemba Djemba, signed Manchester United for a fee of ยฃ2,290,000 in January 2005. A player not renowned for either scoring ability or quality arriving in a position that already boasts Gareth Barry, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Steven Davis, Gavin McCann, Lee Hendrie and Mathieu Berson.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe manager made it very clear that he wasnโ€™t happy with the fact he [Juan Pablo รngel] took the second penalty. โ€œHe thought he should have stepped aside and let someone else take it. Basically he has told him that he will not take another penalty this season. โ€œIt is two points lost for us. We had the game under control.โ€ Roy Aitken.
