Is everybody happy? La la la la la la la. Sorry, you had to have watched A Fist Full Of Travellers Cheques to appreciate the song I think!
Juan Pablo Angel has said he is 'very happy' at Villa and once again has a smile back on his face. Must admit, if I was a footballer, I'd only have to look at my bank account balance to have a smile on my face.
Anyway, I'm not, he is, so I'll shut up ....... :(
Angel said: 'I am very happy. I know what I am capable of doing and last year wasn't good enough - for me or anyone here. But now I have got a smile back on my face and am really looking forward to each and every day. I don't want to talk about last season. It is in the past and I want to leave it there but I just wanted to get the enjoyment back.'
'The team spirit and the togetherness is back. It is all about that enjoyment, looking forward to the next training session and looking forward to the next game and that is what happening here now. The mood has been terrific since Martin O'Neill took the job. He gave us the belief in ourselves and we have shown a lot of determination this year. We have got good results and the way we are playing is far better than last year.'
He also predicts 'great times' ahead as the belief is back in the team.
Manager Tim Sherwood has spoken of his disappointment - and shouldered the blame - for today's one nil loss to Stoke City.
