Lee Hendrie is hoping that a quick re-run of his own personal 'Goal of the Season' compilation will help restore his inspired mid-Autumn goalscoring streak.
When the Aston Villa midfielder curled in a beauty against Everton at Goodison Park back in October, it was his fourth goal in five games - and all of them had been absolute belters.
But the one-man goal spectacular has dried up as quickly as it started, Hendrie having scored just once since. And, ahead of tomorrow's rematch with Everton, the former England international is planning to go down the route of cricketers and golfers by watching himself on video to see if he can spot anything that can help trigger his golden goal touch again.
"I was lying in bed this morning reminding myself of what I've done this season, thinking of the goals I've scored," said Hendrie. "And the thought came to me that I should dig out this DVD of my goals this season that someone's put together for me.
"It certainly can't do any harm having a look at it. But it's really down to the old saying 'If you don't shoot, you don't score'.
"It's probably no coincidence that we have so many in our team who are not scared to have a go, like Nobby Solano and Thomas Hitzlsperger. We know if you're not having a go, you're never going to score.
"And I want to get that fantastic feeling of scoring a goal again.
"Any good run of form you can get into is great and when you're scoring goals too it's even better.
"But when you're scoring goals which are all decent strikes too, as I did in that little run earlier in the season, you couldn't wish for anything better.
"I haven't scored that many over the years. I average about three a season. So to have five already is pushing for a 'PB' and the fact that they've all been pretty special just makes it all the sweeter. But, to be honest, I could do with that coming round again.
"Just to go out there and put the shirt on and have the fans sing your name is good enough. To score goals like that makes it even better. It gives you the kind of buzz that you really can't quite put into words. And, when you get it, it's nice to keep getting it.
"I enjoyed the Crystal Palace one the most, because I connected it with it so well and it was so far out for me. But the Everton one was up there as well. The Palace one I actually saw all the way in, whereas the sun was in my eyes a bit for the Everton one, and it wasn't until I saw it again that perhaps I appreciated it a bit more."
What perhaps made Hendrie's little purple patch even more special was that it was set against the backdrop of his latest unwanted batch of off-field newspaper headlines. But he admits that such a character-building experience, at a time when his manager David O'Leary was telling him that he needed to start making the right sort of footballing headlines, has at last helped him mature both on and off the field.
"It's been a tough time," he said. "And the bad times have brought out the good times in me, especially through my football. "Hopefully I can kick on and keep making me stronger.
"Maybe I should have started maturing three or four years ago, but you learn by your mistakes in life, and I'm still learning.
"I've been slagged off and put down about my football and my personal life, but I've learnt that it's better to simply take it on the chin, and try to have a smile and a laugh about things, or you'll end up burying it inside you and making it ten times worse."
