ON THIS DAY

Villa's woeful League form under Gรฉrard Houllier sees Villa draw with their near neighbours for the second time this season to show just how far they had fallen since Martin O'Neill's departure on the eve of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Villaโ€™s legendary centre forward John Carew made his final appearance for Villa aged 31 before moving on to West Ham United on a free transfer in August 2011.

Carew was a bona fide club legend during his time with Villa but has only enhanced his connection with the club since his unwarranted departure.

Treated shabbily by Houllier he was underused and shown the exit door prematurely but that would not stop him identifying with and supporting the club who had so readily taken him to their heart.

Like Olof Mellberg, Martin Laursen and Stiliyan Petrov, Carew connected with the club on a level that few footballers do. That he was also an entertaining and maverick personality only added to the mutual appreciation.

Carew made 131 appearances for Villa, scoring 48 goals over his 5 seasons with the club and boy did Houllier need someone like that right now.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIn football, will is as important as skill and the players really want to get back up the table. โ€œI think we are getting stronger in terms of character and attitude. โ€œI think we should have got more than a point, considering the number of chances we created. โ€œWhen we came back to 1-1 we had a number of good chances to win the game. โ€œJames Collins scored the goal for us, but he could have had a second goal. But after that, there was Nathan Delfounesoโ€™s shot and four or five times overall we hit the bar.โ€ Gรฉrard Houllier
