Petrov’s fight can inspire Villa to reach League Cup final

lifesapitch - Professional football is a harsh, unforgiving place. The beautiful game tolerates some ugly people. Yet, principally, it is driven by positivity. That’s why many neutrals will look beyond an understandable affinity with the underdog tonight, and wish Aston Villa well in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final at Bradford.

Though driven by pragmatism as much as principle, Villa’s determination to pursue Paul Lambert’s youth project is admirable. Reaching a major final would have a reassuring effect on a club that is not always comfortable in its own skin. This has been a difficult season that has tested fans’ faith to destruction. (Aston Villa, Other Cups, Stiliyan Petrov)

Petrov's fight is inspiring, shame the team can't take example of him and perform like an actual team
