'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Villa Times - 18/10/2006

Both Martin O'Neill and Randy Lerner watched Aston Villa reserves come back from 2 down to beat West Ham at Upton Park last night with Chris Sutton making his first appearance in a claret and blue shirt. Full article: Click Here and on Chris Sutton before the game: Click Here

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.

Helloooo, helloooo, its good to be back, its good to be back! Gary Cahill, slayer of all things blue, made a welcome return from injury and played the full 90 minutes against West Ham reserves. Full article: Click Here

For those in the Vital Villa fantasy league, here are the current standings. I'm lulling everyone into a false sense of security before flying through the league to win. Either that or I'll take the booby prize for being last! Full article: Click Here

Spurs defender Calum Davenport has had his red card from Saturday's game against Villa rescinded by the fa. For more details, see the Vital Spurs article as I can't be bothered to type anymore about it, now there is dedication to the job! Click Here

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. I've never looked that far ahead as a manager because disaster is just around the corner. I'm just back to my old negative self again.'

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.'

Stiliyan Petrov has said he nearly quit the game and implies England's loss is very much Villa's gain: Click Here

Thought for the day: If work is so terrific, how come they have to pay you to do it?

amazing that the FA acted that quickly, on replay it did look like Gabby might have stumbled but the camera angle I saw wasn't too conclusive.
The Fear
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.

It looked like a slight contact off the dirty spuds player knocked the boy wonder off balance, obviously the spuds are calling it a dive, but I have put them right, UTV

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.
