A point gained
As weekends in the Premier League go, our 0-0 which kicked off the weekend will be quickly forgotten by most.
Lets face it, while the point was enough to put us top of the Premier League for the early part of Saturday afternoon, once Manchester City had put five past Tottenham and Manchester United had put eight past Arsenal a dull no score draw with Villa was hardly high up on the headlines.
That said, for us it was a good point. Aston Villa had far more chances and clear cut ones at that (not hard when the stats show we had three attempts at goal in 90 minutes) so to come away with a point is a positive.
It leaves us still undefeated after three games and on seven points at the end of August, a tally that took us till October to reach last season.
It might not have been pretty, we might have had our backs to the wall, but come May, it's a point gained.
'They were pumped up for 15 minutes in second half and had a really good spell, as much to do with us failing to keep the ball and not passing it to someone in a gold shirt.' McCarthy told the BBC.
He added: 'But we had a good barrier to block them. There were some good blocks and saves.
'Would I take a point at Villa with Bent, Heskey, N'Zogbia and Agbonlahor? Too right I would.'
