Shaun Wright-Phillips will not move in the summer and will turn down any offers from Aston Villa according to the Chelsea winger. Martin O’Neill tried to sign him during January either permanently or on loan but the England international wanted to stay and fight for his place (and pick up massive wages?!!?) at Chelski. 'I am settled in the south completely and I see myself living here for the rest of my life. I've been working hard all year. I've been keeping my head down and finding my feet the longer I've been here.' Full article: Chelsea Winger Will Snub Aston Villa

According to a report by Shaun Custis in The Sun both Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers are at the head of the queue for Liverpool striker and foul mealy mouthed yobbo (!) Craig Bellamy. Must admit, he does know where the goal is though! Full article: Bellend To Villa? Surely Not!
Vital Villa asked if you would like Craig Bellamy at Villa? No, he's a yobbo! 50%, No, he's never fit 1%, Yes, if MON can control him 46%, Unsure 3%.
Gabby Agbonlahor is looking for an improvement in the points haul as Villa enter the final quarter of the season and says the aim is still to finish in the top half to the table. He also says the break has done him good as he was starting to feel tired. Full article: Gabby Looking For Storming FinishClick Here

Olof Mellberg told the official site: 'The pressure is now on us to match the club's ambitions. The bearded wonder says more players will arrive in the summer and admits that puts pressure on the current players. Full article: Mellberg - More To Come For Villa
Patrik Berger is happy to be involved again but will wait until the summer to weigh up his future options. Full article: Berger On Future & Aston Villa
Milan Baros has spoken to L'Equipe of his time at Villa and says 'The first season at Villa was the best,' But then said of the lack of ambition despite the promises made to him. Doug et al making false promises? Don't believe that for a second! 'They promised other players to build a big team. Some came but it was not enough. I was disappointed with that. Coming back from the World Cup, I knew I would leave. In the end at Villa, I didn't feel any trust. People had a different sight on football than mine. I never said anything against them, we just didn't see things the same way.'
The Villa are offering a 5 match season ticket deal. They are calling it 'High Five' which gives you tickets for: Liverpool, Everton, Wigan, Portsmouth and Sheffield United. Not sure why Arsenal isn't in with that, or doesn't high six sound as good! :-p Prices start at £30 (under 16s) and £90 (adults) The offer gives full Season Ticket benefits including: 10% off in Aston Villa merchandise stores, Free claret and blue magazine, Free yearbook, Exclusive access to the Holte Suite before and after a game (if you are early enough that is!) Last 5 Season Tickets are available until March 16.
Thought for the day: '24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not!'
