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!
