Norwich v Villa: Weimann - I want more great Carrow Road memories


Andreas Weimann has great memories of Carrow Road - and he wants some more on Saturday.

Paul Lambert's Villa beat Norwich twice on the road last term, showing their class in the cup game and character in the league clash.

Weimann scored two in the foggy Capital One Cup fourth round win and worked his socks off in the vital Barclays Premier League victory in the final weeks of the season.

He wants to be able to smile again when the final whistle blows on the early-afternoon match this weekend.

He said: "I came on in the first half of the cup match and scored two goals to help us win.

"I didn't score in the league game there but it was a good, solid team performance and a big win for us too. I have good memories.

"The game in the league was huge, a massive win for us. We went 1-0 up and they scored an equaliser with not long to go. That was a set-back but we showed the character and determination to want to win the game. That was brilliant."

Weimann insists that confidence remains high within the group, sustained by the level of performance in a formidable start to the season.

It is a platform, he says, to go and build on over the autumn period.

He added: "After a defeat, you can't wait for the next game. That's the attitude in camp.

"We all want to go again. We want to put things right and turn things around.

"We aren't down, no way. We aren't worried by the Newcastle defeat either. And, in fact, all the games we have lost have been tight matches.

"It's not like we've been blown away in any of them. They have been close, close games and another day we might have won all three of them.

"There's been one goal in all of them. Now we need to turn things our way.

"We were disappointed with the first half against Newcastle. We sat in too deep and couldn't get into the rhythm of what we're good at which is playing at a high tempo.

"We were much better in the second half. We really got into their faces. We got the goal back and thought we could push on for the win so to lose the next goal was very frustrating.

"We are best when we're playing quick football. That's what we have to do to succeed.

"We have loads of energy and great tempo. We showed that in the second half. We want to show that from the start at Norwich."
