The importance of NOT being idle

A glance at today's ASTON VILLA team sheet hinted at problems to come, I thought, as I prepared to watch a live PREMIER LEAGUE match on television. Who was going to score Villa's goals against NEWCASTLE UNITED?
John Carew? He epitomized Villa's wastefulness when he blasted a penalty kick ridiculously high in the 10th minute.

Ashley Young? He might be the worst judge of an offside trap in the English top flight.

What about second-half substitute Emile Heskey? We all know he's not going to score.

Instead, it was Newcastle who feasted at their ST. JAMES'S PARK home, beating Villa, 6-0, thanks to a hat-trick by Andy Carroll (pictured).

Taking nothing away from Newcastle, but Villa looked awful. The home side were first to almost every ball, and Newcastle's running off the ball left the Villa defense hopelessly befuddled.

There have been several 6-0 scorelines in the opening two weekends of Premiership action. Today's drubbing demonstrated the importance of NOT being idle, in thought and in action.
