ON THIS DAY

Villa are torn to shreds by Marlon Harewood and West Ham as they record their fifth loss in ten games under David O'Leary yet, despite the result, it was a celebrated day for the Villa as two players who typified everything the fans value made their debut. Joining the likes of Juan Pablo รngel, Gareth Barry, Olof Mellberg and the injured Martin Laursen and Mark Delaney in the squad it remains a mystery how such talent and commitment wasnโ€™t mobilised to drive Villa forward. That it wasnโ€™t is perhaps the single biggest indictment of the Oโ€™Leary era as, despite having the nous to bring quality into the club, he failed to galvanise this outstanding spine of a team.โ€‹

Winger James Milner made his Villa debut aged 19 after joining on a season long loan from Newcastle United in August 2005.

Dutch international right back Wilfred Bouma made his Villa debut aged 27 after joining from PSV Eindhoven for a fee of ยฃ4,230,000 in July 2005.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe struggled, end of story. We didnโ€™t handle them defensively and were outmuscled all over the pitch. โ€œThe players know that, theyโ€™re an honest bunch and we have to do much better than that - we will do better. โ€œThey played with great hunger and the way I want my teams to play - donโ€™t let people settle, play at a high tempo and get at people. They did that to us.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
