I didnt realise Randy was actually driving us down there personally! I'm sure he'll love a big rendition of "The wheels on the bus go round and round!"

Yes deano, think I'm totally right (for right replace with totally wrong) that Randy will be driving.

Week follows week, yet still nothing negative appears in The Villa Times. I could really get used to this being positive.

It's Ok Jon, we've still got some doom and gloom merchants, miserable bu*gers, I am sure they are more than capable of moaning enough for everyone. but if you feel like a rant, go on, let it out, you'll feel much better, if you cant find anything to rant about with Villa, try something else, such as....... the lack of discipline in kids today, state of the NHS, government, religion, wars, the nasty curtains in the front room, over officious stewards is always a good one.
