Shouldn't you be gone? Blackpool v. Aston Villa, 12 February 2011, 4:30 p.m. EST (Tape Delay)

Wednesday's friendly between England and Denmark featured eight former or current Villa players, with current Villans Darren Bent and Ashley Young firing home England's two goals in a 2-1 win.

With the strikeforce feeling that much more confident, Villa travel to Bloomfield Road to take on Blackpool, a return of a match that cost Seasiders' gaffer Ian Holloway 25,000 GBP, who now feels like he's no longer a manager.  Holloway played ten players not in his usual XI, and was thus judged to be fielding an "uncompetitive side" that Villa still struggled to put away.

Villa will be without Fabian Delph and Luke Young, both out with knee injuries.  American fullback Eric Lichaj has left on a month's loan to Leeds to get some first team experience.

The Capital Villans will be taking in Saturday's match at 4:30, for the tape-delayed broadcast, at Lucky Bar on Connecticut and 18th. Join us!
