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.

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.
