Unoial Villa News...



Vital Villan: Martin O'Neill must be loving life lately, when we are awful we pick up the win, and when the pressure is on we are starting to respond. Speaking on the official site after the 2-1 victory over the Boggies, O'Neill stated that Villa's performance was certainly good value for money, and whilst he was nervous our failure to kill the game off in the first half and then in the second, could come back to bite us, he states it was a super result nonetheless and a brilliant way of bouncing back from a less than acceptable performance against Lovech. 'It was a super performance and a super result. I thought we did brilliantly.' Full verdict: Value For Money From Super Result

The official site has run a story on the Acorns Children's Hospice who are launching its festive campaign with Martin Laursen and Ashley Young on Monday. The article explains:
'Luke's Appeal for Acorns at Home' is a vital £2m fundraising campaign aimed at reaching an additional 300 life-limited children in the region by offering care services at home. Don't miss your opportunity to see this event on the steps of The Mailbox on Monday at 1pm. Full article and link to Acorns: Young & Laursen Launch Acorns Appeal

Vital Villa asked by Vital Villan masquerading this time as 'lady luck' (!) for your man of the match v Litex Lovech. Nigel Hokey-Cokey walked it, the vote that is, not the match. The midfielder got 61% of the votes. New boy Carlos Cuellar came next with 13% and it seems that Stiliyan Petrov is continuing to impress as he got 9% of the votes.

Vital Villan asked in our last poll, who was the Man of the Match v Spurs. Well, he actually asked who was the MotM because his fingers get tired so he doesn't like to type out the full words.....!!!!!!!!! No real shock that Gareth Barry won, picking up 31% Next up was Curtis Davies with 22% for a great performance blocking out any threat from Spurs.

Vital Villan: We all remember the 'pub' comments on Curtis Davies' debut against Leicester in the Cup, but Davies wants us to know he was 'rested' and not 'dropped' for Lovech. He also has no intention of giving his place up to Carlos Cuellar, and he's ready to face Albion at the weekend. Speaking to the Mail, Davies leaves you with the distinct impression that he is very driven and very focused. The response to whether he appreciated the 'rest' against Lovech speaks volumes to me. 'Has it done me good? Not really because I want to play in every game. 'I am 23 years old. I do not need rest. I don`t even think about rest I want to play in every game I can because of only having played so many games last year. I am young, as I say, so I don`t really need rest - particularly for the Albion game!' Full article: Honesty, Passion and Ambition

Thought for the day: 'There may be many ways to skin a rabbit but at the end of the day the rabbit is still screwed'

Nigel Kennedy and Colin Davies, two top Villans. I like the latters John Carew song too, the mans got talent. In this instance let me clarify that I'm talking about Colin Davies.
