Weimann on keeping dressing room decibel levels high


Andreas Weimann insists the confidence in camp is sky-high as Villa get set to face Stoke on Sunday.

Villa are aiming for a hat-trick of home wins, after seeing off Norwich and Chelsea in the last two B6 battles.

Weimann says the players are buzzing after the 1-0 win over the Blues - and he hopes the team can take that feel-good factor into the tough Potters test this weekend.

He said: "Bodymoor Heath is buzzing. We have seen it in training all week. We're all so confident at the moment.

"The whole team played really well against Chelsea, every single player performed on the night.

"We feel great after that win. I thought we thoroughly deserved it too.

"We defended well. We fought hard in midfield. We created chances. We scored the only goal of the game. We had a plan. We had our tactics for the game. We got them right.

"We played really well and caused them quite a few problems. Christian had two chances and Fabian could have got a second right at the end.

"The dressing room was so noisy after the match. There were a lot of pats on the back and high fives and the music was on pretty loud. It was a great place to be.

"It's like that after every win but there was even more joy in there because we beat one of the best teams - the side at the top of the table.

"They are the moments you get into football for - they make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

"When the final whistle went, I just remember the noise all around the stadium. It was tremendous. My hands went straight up in the air when the ref blew - I was first-pumping.

"This is now the most confident we have felt all season. We had won quite a few games - lately Norwich - so we went into the Chelsea match with plenty of belief.

"But the win has given us an added boost. We feel very good as we look forward to the rest of the season now.

"We're all focused on the rest of the games. We want to get as many wins as we can and see where we are at the end of the season.

"Finishing the season well is important because it sets you up for the summer. You can go away feeling good about the next campaign and the fans have plenty of optimism as they look forward too.

"There has definitely been progress this season. We were right near the bottom for much of the previous season until we finished extremely well but this season we haven't been near that really.

"Now we're sitting in 10th - that's progress for us. All you can ask for is progress.

"It's about small steps. It's about moving forward steadily. I feel the gaffer is building something special. It's about finishing this season well and then pushing on again next season."
