'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Olof Mellberg - stato impressionabile

Olof Mellberg - Villa Legend.

A thank you from Vital Villa to the bearded wonder who provided us with years of tough tackling, top defending and most of all, passion for the claret and blue army.

And as if he wasn't legend enough, today he has given every away fan at the West Ham game an away shirt with his name and number printed on it with 'thanks for the support'.

The Vital Villa 'best beard of the season, so Olof Mellberg wins something whilst at Villa' award will now be retired in his honour!

So long, fair well or should that be pozzo di prezzo e di buona fortuna.
