It is refreshing to hear a young striker who has just scored his second goal against Chelsea keen to label the first strike the better of the two.
Luke Moore, it would appear, is not one for totting up his tally... quality not quantity drives him.
His manager, David O'Leary, might disagree. Wednesday night's 77th minute scrambled goal which earned Aston Villa a welcome draw against the champions was significantly more important than Moore's goal at Stamford Bridge last September from the club's perspective.
But from the young play-er's point of view his goal at Chelsea last year was markedly better.
Then, it netted Moore £10,000 from a national newspaper for the first goal scored against Chelsea this season but Villa were still defeated 2-1.
When asked on Wednesday which goal he ranked as more significant, he was unequivocal. "The one at Stamford Bridge . . . it was a cleaner goal. But any goal is a goal and especially right now I will take anything, " he said.
That a player of 19 should hunger for high quality goals should be applauded. With four goals this season he is hardly threatening the leading goal scorers in the Premiership but he is creeping up the Villa list with only Milan Baros (5) and Steven Davis (4) placed higher in league competition.
While Moore might have other Premiership strikers knocking on his door, seeking the secret to unlocking Chelsea's miserly defence, he would probably be the first to admit Wednesday night's goal came more by luck than judgement.
All the work had been done by Mark Delaney, who broke for the by-line before pulling back a cross which skittered in off Moore's left foot. Even his captain Olof Mellberg expressed disbelief that his young team-mate had claimed the goal.
His old school was the beneficiary of his goal at Chelsea; Villa reaped the rewards of Wednesday's effort, yet the fans will doubtless be more thrilled to hear him say neither was his greatest moment so far in his senior career.
"It's my first [goal] in front of the Holte End. A striker will take any goal that comes," he said. "Was it my best feeling so far? No. Beating Blues was my best feeling, but this pushes it close."
That the ebullient Moore can come off the bench and within two minutes turn a game in Villa's favour must be heartening for O'Leary and Moore echoes his manager's claims of better times ahead.
The young master is, he insists, still learning from those around him.
"It's always nice to have good strikers at the club. Milan Baros is going to be going to the World Cup, and is a quality player," he said.
"You'd be a fool not to learn with the players we have here and I don't think I will ever stop learning. Hopefully I will keep learning and improving as a player. I will keep focusing on myself.
"There is no point about worrying about other people else in this game because you have got to be focused and if you aren't focused you are going to fall on the wayside.
"You've got to have that belief. In every changing room, every player believes in himself - if not he is not going to survive."
Moore, who has played in 19 of Villa's games so far, has been a fan of the club since childhood and he is delighted to be in the position where he is the envy of many a Birmingham teenager.
Having come through the ranks of the Villa youth academy with his brother Stefan, who is now at Queens Park Rangers, he is the picture of contentment at Villa.
He now runs out against world-class Chelsea players like Arjen Robben, John Terry and Claude Makelele. The privilege is not lost on him.
"It's gone alright for me. It's my second season. Obviously you want the best for yourself, and I am trying to push on, but I am just trying to stay focused," he said.
Nor does he seem to mind being used primarily as a substitute. If the impact he made on Wednesday as a substitute, then so be it.
"Naturally I am going to want to play every game, but I am also young and that is why I have stayed at the club because I believe in the manager and the staff because they are going to bring me along the right way," said Moore.
