Unoial Villa News...
Martin O'Neill has once again had to quell the rumour that Villa are about to sign former Celtic legend Henrik Larsson He told Sky Sports News 'I was in Scotland last night, John Robertson and Henrik Larsson were inducted into Scotland's Hall of Fame which is a great honour for them and is fantastic. And maybe that might be where you are running that line that Henrik Larsson may be about to sign. Let me tell you, there is not an ounce of truth in it. Absolutely none. So if you could quell that rumour as quickly as possible it would be great.' Reading between the lines there, I reckon we won't be signing Henrik Larsson? :o)
Reports in the People this weekend have suggested Aston Villa are watching Wolves in-form goalkeeper Matt Murray with a view to a possible January transfer window swoop. There have also been suggestions that Villa might try to get the shot stopper on loan first. The report also suggests that the goalies form has caught the eye of Steve McClaren.

Stiliyan Petrov is aiming high and asks Why can't Villa 'do an Everton' and finish fourth? 'They (Everton) showed two seasons ago it's possible for clubs to break into the top four. We can do the same. Why not? European football is incredible and the Villa players want to achieve it next season. I've got used to winning things. I see no reason why I should lower my ambitions now.' Full article: Click Here

I've got a spot on my ear although I guess strictly speaking, or speaking in any sense (not that I ever speak with any sense you understand) that can't really be classed as Villa news..... come to think of it, it might not be classed as news full stop. Nice to share though eh?
For those that can see the Villa Times but not the sticky article above it, General Charles Krulak has answered questions from Vital Villa readers: Full interview: Click Here If you want less than the full interview, put your hand over half the answers.

Stiliyan Petrov says that Chris Sutton , who he first played with at Celtic, will only improve as he gains match fitness and says he could make the difference in our quest for Europe. Click Here
Stiliyan Petrov says his first goal for Aston Villa isn't far away. The midfielder went close again at Goodison Park only to be foiled by Toffees keeper Tim Howard (bloody American's !!! ;) on Saturday but Petrov says: 'As long as you have chances, you try and you work hard, the goals will come. When? We'll see. I forced a couple of saves on Saturday but that's football. A lot of people keep asking me when I will score for Villa and all I can say is that the goal will come. I will keep trying and it will come.'
Thought for the day: If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?
