Another Villa exit! That said, this one was certainly expected as striker Luke Moore has made his loan move to West Bromwich Albion a permanent one. Ok, enough exits, lets have a few incoming please!

The work is currently affecting access to the dressing rooms, tunnel area and the pitch. All children who have parties booked this summer, plus one nominated adult (per child), will have the chance to attend a full behind-the-scenes stadium tour of Villa when the refurbishment project is complete.

Reports in the Guardian today suggest that Randy Lerner is planning on taking the role of CEO at Villa following the departure of Richard FitzGerald last January and COO Michael Cunnah recently.

Busy bees? I wish we were. Plenty of unfounded rumours, but little incoming action. Its all outgoing, more depleting of the ranks. Not worried yet though, no need to panic. I keep taking the medication to keep me calm.

Hope Gabby and Ashley get a decent run out for England on Sunday evening, make their attendance at this end of sesason get together seem more sensible. Missing out on playing time in both games will seem a somewhat strange decision by Capello.
