Don't we have to announce things like this to the Stock Exchange first? Should we be looking for some sort of advance clue when that shuts at 4:30? The old duffer couldn't bring someone else in now at this late hour surely? Please tell me I'm flapping unnecessarily?

I've always been proud to say I'm Villa, Tonight I'm really proud to say i'm Villa, MON press conference was inspiring, ******** believe deadly making references to one of the journalist about the big C, after what MON has been through with his missus, just shows what a total t##t he really is. Come on you lions

Anyone else think O'Neill looked like he really didnt want to be there? Said he was petrified and really avoided the question about working with Doug. Didnt fill me with confidence at all.

Get in there Martin. He spoke very well, was honest and seems ambitious. He prob is nervous as whilst Ellis is still around..who wouldn't be! loved his comeback to Doug's comments about Tommy Doc and Big Ron. Dry sense of humour.
