MATCH SUMMARY

Villa's five game unbeaten run is shattered at White Hart Lane as they concede five to leave them with six wins in twenty two Premier League games under David O'Leary but of more concern is the delusional dribbles of drivel that poor out of the manager's mouth post match.

KEY MAN

Gareth Barry scores from the spot on and otherwise best forgotten afternoon as Villa lose for the first time in six but are left with just six wins in twenty two Premier League games under the increasingly deluded David O'Leary, Sunday, 1 May 2005.

ON THIS DAY

Villa's five game unbeaten run comes to a crashing end as they endure their biggest loss of the season, shipping five goals at Tottenham to make it eleven defeats in the last 23 League matches under David O'Leary. Goalkeeper Stefan Postma made his final appearance for Villa aged 28 before moving on to ADO Den Haag on a free transfer in August 2006. Villa had paid ยฃ2,000,000 to De Graafschap in July 2002 for his services and he went on to make 14 appearances, 4 as substitute and was an unused substitute on 118 occasions during his 3 seasons with Villa.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIf ever a penalty was a penalty, then that was a penalty. โ€œIf we had had a penalty Kanoute wouldnโ€™t have immediately gone down the pitch and scored the opening goal. โ€œI thought we were poor. My players let themselves down. We gave away too many soft goals and we were too easy to play against. โ€œWe are a small group, but for the second year running weโ€™re in the mix for Europe. โ€œThe players have given me everything and theyโ€™ve shown a great consistency over the last two years.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
