Stats from West Ham v Villa: Click Here

I've set up a Browns Backers (Cleveland Browns fan groups), more details available: Click Here

Vital Villa asked who would be Villa's top scorer this season. 59% said Juan Pablo Angel, 27% said Milan Baros and 6% backed Stiliyan Petrov. That left Luke Moore and Gabriel Agbonlahor sharing 3% each and a.n.other option polled just 2%.

Martin Laursen has explained he only found out he was set to make his Premiership return an hour before the kick off against West Ham on Sunday. 'I'm pleased with my performance. To play against West Ham on September 10 was something I didn't expect. I couldn't be more pleased. I didn't expect to be here this early, so I'm just happy at how things are going for me. My form was good and I didn't feel I had any problems with the knee.' Full article: Click Here

Stiliyan Petrov told the Sun that Martin O'Neill 'will bring something to this club the players and fans will enjoy. It will be a good style of attacking football that people will appreciate. The team has more belief this season and are working hard for each other.' And when asked if we could compete for Europe he said: "Why not? We can work hard, hope everyone stays fit and see what happens. We push for Europe, as everybody wants to play there. We have a belief and good ability."

Gareth Barry is hoping his versatility might earn him an England re-call. Full article: Click Here

Yes JP, think you can pack up those bags of doom and gloom and take a holiday knowing that Villa appear in safe hands while you are away.

Doug Ellis the scurge of Villa, O'Leary - Oh Really. O'Neill has what it takes and barring our 'Arry he is one of the best British Isles managers there is.

Is anybody going to offer a box for doug? He's leaving now, Randy's within touching distance of the required 90%, but Doug said he wouldn't be leaving without going in a box. I've got one that I buy bulk packs of cat food in, it'd go over his head, but not round that ample waistline I'm afraid. More boxes needed....

Looks like Kevin Bond didnt part company on friendly terms with harry after all, when he left pompey for Newcastle. I have heard (And this will be confirmed if Panorama broadcast it Tuesday 19/09/06) that Keving Bond, was caught on tape naming Managers that May take a Bung. As Harry redknapp was named by Kevin Bond, Harry, then asked Kevin to leave Pompey, after managing NOT to get lured in... (which makes sence, as Harry must have smealt the rat having been branded time and time again... Lets be fair, Harry isnt that daft he saw it coming). Now Panorama is about to screen the recording, Kevin Bond is likely to make more enemies, as he names other managers. Hence his need for Personal leave, and probably the end of his short lived spell in Newcastle???? Watch Tuesday to see if the murmours i hear are true or false.

Well said Gazvilla. One of the comments of the year to date. I second it by the way.
