Martin O'Neill has said that Aaron Hughes isn't likely to return from a recurrence of the groin injury in time for the Wigan game, 'I would say so. I was told initially that it would be a couple of weeks before Aaron was back and I would assume that is still the case. As for surgery, I'm hoping not. There has certainly been no mention from the physios about immediate surgery.'
Villa have taken an additional 500 tickets for the trip to Portsmouth (Dec 2) after the initial allocation was quickly snapped-up by the Claret and Blue Army. The first 1,500 seats have already sold out, with the extra allocation now on sale.

According to Shaun Custis of The Sun are battling to sign Manchester United striker Alan Smith in January. Our latest poll asks if you would like to see the former England and Leeds striker at Villa....

Martin O'Neill is hoping inspirational Villa captain Gareth Barry will be able to return to the team for the away game against Wigan this Sunday (1.30, televised by Sky Sports). His return is doubly important as Villa will be missing Gavin McCann who is a very naughty boy and misses the game due to a one match suspension. He'll remain at Villa Park writing lines one would presume.
Martin O'Neill has said he hopes young midfielder Isaiah Osbourne will sign a new contract in the next few weeks. Full article: Click Here
Vital Villa asked if Stiliyan Petrov was right when he said Villa can 'do an Everton' and clinch 4th spot this season. 28% said yes, 38% said it was a long shot but we could possibly do it, 5% said we'd do it next season and a further 15% said we were more likely to qualify for the Uefa Cup this term. That left 13% predicting 7-10th and 1% asking 'how the hell do I know!?'
Martin O'Neill says he is torn following loan links for Gary Cahill and Peter Whittingham: 'I'm obviously very torn. The great thing about Lee Hendrie is that we can get him back at any given minute, and while he is still playing it is great news and we will see how we cope. Ideally it would be great to give people that month out there because we have a heavy Christmas programme.' Full article: Click Here
