MATCH SUMMARY

Of all the results Villa wouldn't have wanted under Alex McLeish as a cynical fan base looked on was a nil-nil draw at a team Villa should be easily beating. That that was exactly what transpired ramps the pressure after just 90 minutes to rarely seen levels.

KEY MAN

Villa labour to a dour goalless draw in Alex McLeish's first Premier League game in charge as a team of attacking talent can't break through against Fulham, Saturday, 13 August 2011.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œHis experience tells him when to go into the right positions. โ€œYou might have seen other goalies diving for one of the two that came point-blank at him, but thatโ€™s the experience of a great goalkeeper.โ€ โ€œI donโ€™t think itโ€™s fair to say that [Given saving the match alone]. I would never say that. โ€œItโ€™s a team game and the team contributed to that point.โ€ Alex McLeish.
