Unoial Villa News...



Villa have arranged a league one loan for Stephen O'Halloran who has joined Leeds United in a one-month loan deal.

Meanwhile former Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie has moved on loan from Sheffield United to Leicester City. The 30-year-old having obviously impressed greatly with the Blades!

Bugger, the home game against Middlesbrough has been moved to Wednesday March 12 (ko 7.45pm) after Boro last night beat Sheffield United in the FA Cup replay and thus progressed to the quarter-finals. Ticket details: Click Here

The Villa v Blues tickets go on sale the Monday following the Boro game, which by my powers of super intelligence suggests 17 March.

Martin O'Neill has spoken about Scott Carson's recent comments saying he'd like to get his future sorted and be settled. 'We'll be making decisions but like anything else there will be a number of parties concerned. That decision is a three-way decision as I would be very quick to point out. For instance, all things could be thwarted if Liverpool decide that they want to bring him back.' Full article: Click Here

Vital Villa asked for your man of the match votes for the Reading game in our last poll, Ashley Young won by some margin with 44%. Next up was super sub Marlon Harewood with 13%.

Our latest poll asks where you think Villa will finish this season.

Martin O'Neill is delighted that Patrik Berger has regained fitness and he hopes he can still have an impact this season. Speaking to the Evening Mail, O'Neill commented: 'His pre-season was going particularly well and he then got injured the day before the Liverpool game. Psychologically that was a big knock-back for him. He had ended the season so brilliantly the year before. He has been thwarted by injuries this year, but anybody is capable of coming in because we don't have the numbers. And I am delighted to see him back again. If he is fully fit he has got every available opportunity. Anything like the impact he made in the last third of last season will be good enough.' However the player could well be off in the summer, for details: Click Here

Martin O'Neill has explained the omission of Stiliyan Petrov from the Villa side v Reading. 'I've decided to take Stiliyan out of the firing line to get his confidence back. All too fleetingly he's shown the really great form and, to be fair, we've played him out of position because he can go and play off the centre-forward.' Full quotes: Click Here

Villa were linked last Sunday with Wes Brown. Villa Rescue Brown From Slave Labour

Well, that was a bit boring wasn't it?!?

While Patrik Bergers days are obviously numbered here at B6, he may well, if he keeps fit, have a part to play between now and seasons end. Still got a decent left foot on him, capable of unlocking any defence.

Stilyan Petrov looks as if he's really now dropped out of favour. Wouldn't be surprised to see him move on during the summer months, even back to Scotland maybe.
