After the wallowing that has gone on for the past week or so, the season gets back underway tonight against Villa, and it has to be said that it is the perfect opportunity to shut a few critics up with a good performance. Shorn of the Cardiff three through suspension, Clichy through yellow card accumulation, and the usual suspects through injury, a win tonight would prove the true depth of the squad, a depth that has been tested to the limit this season.
