Unoial Villa News...
Martin O'Neill says Milan Baros has given him food for thought following his goal in the reserves against Spurs on Monday. 'He did really well. He scored the goal and did really well. He tried to get hold of the ball, tried to turn, tried to run with it. He did fine. It will give me food for thought, absolutely, because although we haven't had that much tinkering we have had to change things a wee bit because of injuries and suspensions.'
Martin O'Neill will apparently decide today whether he is going to re-call Lee Hendrie from his loan at Stoke or allow him to stay at the Potters. Hendrie Recall d-day?

Martin O'Neill says that right back Aaron Hughes is back in training and 'getting better by the day' following his groin injury but the Villa boss won't rush him back this weekend unless he is fully fit. He also hopes that Stiliyan Petrov and Gavin McCann will be back and fit to face Middlesbrough on Saturday. Full article: Click Here
Martin O'Neill says he'd be happy for Villa to do their pre-season tour in America next summer. WAHEY, watch out you Yanks, the Villans are coming!!! 'I'll work in conjunction with the owner, and if it's America, then I'd genuinely fancy that with a couple of games.' Wonder if Randy will extend his offer of paying for fans to go to matches in America, I'm with Martin, I'd genuinely fancy that!!!! Full quotes: Click Here
Jermain Defoe has been linked to a £7million move to Villa as the Mirror say O'Neill has a £30million transfer kitty. Last week the papers were telling us we were after fellow Spurs striker Robbie Keane. Articles on Vital Spurs will save me going into the rumour myself!Click Here and Click Here
Martin O'Neill is pleased that the Premier League have allowed former Villa defender Gareth Southgate to carry on as Middlesbrough boss. 'I wish him well. It is a very difficult task. It's good that he's been given the go-ahead to continue on there. I am an advocate of that, it's not a problem. He will be picking up things every single day. He definitely has the attributes and the ability to be a really good manager. But like everything else, time will tell.'
Doug Ellis says he has left Villa in safe hands: 'I'm six weeks away from my 83rd birthday and with my present situation it was right that I sold. It is sad, though' Oh no, trust us Doug, its not sad at all! ;-) 'Letters come in all the time, not hundreds but certainly dozens and dozens. Not one has made a complaint about my chairmanship. They are all complimentary.' Doug will be at a dinner in his honour tonight with Big Ron and Tommy Docherty doing the guest speaking. Funny he wasn't at the Rotterdam Revisited evening last week though!? Meow......!
Vital Villa asked if we should enter the Inter-Two-Bob Cup? 52% were unsure and said they'd leave it to Martin O'Neill. 34% were in favour and 14% said no.
Thought for the day: If Tesco are lowering prices every day, how come nothing in the store is free yet?
