Olof Mellberg Clinches Award By A Whisker

Olof Mellberg Clinches Award By A Whisker

Vital Villa have started the end of season awards.

The first one up was best beard of the season award (originally set up 6 seasons ago to ensure that Mellberg won something whilst at Villa).

The options were:

Olof Mellberg or Olof Mellberg

Mellberg won by a whisker (get it?) over Mellberg! 51% to 49%

Yes, I know I've lost my marbles, but this is a major honour for Ollie and I'll make sure the club pass on our congratulations to him. I'll also beg to see if we can get an acceptance speach for the prize (which is a blunt razor to make sure he doesn't think about shaving the beard off!)

Congraluations to Mellberg, he has beaten off all comers including Ridgewells bum fluff and Juan Pablo Angels goatee to pick up the award six seasons in a row.

Our latest poll asks for your predictions for the crunch game v Everton, then we'll get into the serious business of player of the year etc!

To show consistency like this and win an award 6 YEARS IN A ROW is magnificent and it shows the character of the man. If only the rest of the team showed so much desire, persistence and willingness to achieve such wonderous feats in the facial hair department, we may already be in the top 4!!!!

I think it should now be retired in his honour or at least rename it the Mellberg award.
