Unoial Villa News...
Martin O'Neill has admitted Villa have forgotten how to win. “We’ve got a lot of improving to do. I don’t think we’ve ever lost the spirit and enthusiasm, but we’ve just lost the “how-to-win” mentality. That’s something that has to be ingrained in the whole football club and I’m hoping at some stage we’ll get it.'

The News of the World say that Celtic are after Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel. They also link the Columbian player to the New York Red Bulls. The pay is great and they give you wings apparently.
The News of the World also repeats the rumour that Martin O'Neill watched 21-year-old West Brom defender Paul McShane in international action this week.

Mark Lawrenson has tipped Villa to beat Everton on Monday night. The BBC pundit said: 'Villa have been playing quite well without having picked up the points they have perhaps deserved. Couple that with the fact that Everton's record at Villa Park hasn't been too hot of late and I've got this down as a home win.' Prediction: 2-0
Mystic Mug is also backing the Villa boys with a 2-0, both from John Carew! With just 2 wins in 19 games, Villa need the points on the board to stop us looking over our shoulders! If we don't get a win, we'll officially be bricking it, we are only 4 points off Charlton who are in the relegation zone with Wigan and Sheffield United, both teams we have to play, also behind us.
Gareth Barry, Villa captain and all round good egg, is also looking for Villa to get back to winning ways. 'There are still seven or eight games left and a lot still can happen. We want to at least finish on a high, get the fans in for the last four home games and show them what's going to come next season. But we still have to look over our shoulder. It's always nice to get past the points total where you feel you are safe for another season. Although we are clear at the moment, you need to get to the points total - and then stop worrying.' He also admits: 'The killer instinct has been missing.'
Thomas Sorensen says Villa have to show they mean business this summer. The Denmark international keeper wants to see the club push on saying: 'I hope we spend big in the summer. It has been so-so for a few years. I have been here for four years and we have had a couple of decent seasons, but never really done the business. We need a few good signings to get there. Obviously if we're talking about European football, I would like to see that happen. The new chairman and manager don't want to be a mid-table team, they want to be a top-eight team and playing for European places. That is definitely the aim.'

Gavin McCann has defended the team and says it will take time for the 'new look Villa' to gel. I thought the argument was there isn't a new look Villa yet? Have to excuse me, I'm easily confused! I'd say we won't fully see a new look until next season when hopefully we've had a busy summer spending. With Villa currently in 15th place, a win against Everton is crucial. That could take us up to 11th which would look and feel so much better for all of us and should settle a few nerves. A loss will cement our place in the relegation fight, especially as we still have to play Wigan and Sheffield United again. Full article: 3 Points, 3 Points, My Kingdom for....
