Juan Pablo Angel once again seems to have split opinion after we asked if the Columbian striker was a spent force or not. 50% said he'll come good. 21% are confused and said after the game against Spurs they really aren't sure anymore. 17% took the hard line and said he is a liability and should be sold leaving 12% saying he is a squad player at best.

Gareth Barry might be targeting a longer unbeaten run but Martin O'Neill is refusing to look too far ahead saying: 'I don't want to look too far ahead because I can't.

In slightly older news 'The General' has praised the Villa fans, 'It's great to be with the fans. The fans are what makes the experience all the more delightful. To see the excitement of the Villa fans is very special.' And in comparison to his home land? We win hands down according to him! 'From the standpoint of fan participation it's far, far better than American football. The constant roar and din of Villa Park is not to be equalled in America.'

It's about time a decision went our way, however be a Chelsea defender and it had probably been the Villa player taking the booking.

Debatable. I'd have been a bit annoyed had it been given against us, but these things have a habit of evening themselves out, and no doubt we'll be denied more obvious penalties as the season develops.
