One of my favourite Vital Footie features, the fan interviews. An interview with a Man City fan: Click Here

My interview on Vital Man City: Click Here

The official site have announced that young midfielder Isaiah Osbourne has signed for Nottingham Forest on a two-month loan deal. The 21-year-old was also apparently interesting Leicester City but Forest have got their man. Be fascinating to see how he gets on, good luck Ozzy!

Vital Villa: Gabby Agbonlahor has said that O'Neill leaving out the majority of the first team for the CSKA match could prove to be crucial to our Champions League aspirations. Speaking to Sky Sports the pacy striker said that the break and the additional recovery time will be vital to our hopes of securing a Top 4 position at the end of the season and catapulting ourselves into the Champions League. Being given this break ahead of the Stoke match, and with obviously no more European date interruptions Gabby believes the squad will remain fresh enough to see us through until the end of the season.

Vital Villan: Martin O'Neill has offered to host a dinner for angry fans who turned up to the CSKA Moscow match unaware we would be fielding such a weakened team. The fans who had spent thousands following the teams European run were obviously angered by what many fans believe was a total capitulation by the manager who prioritised our league campaign. This is of course notwithstanding the fact that the youngsters who came in did a very admirable job and were in many ways unlucky not to secure a result themselves. Full article:

Strong words from Michael Bakewell on the goings on in the last week: Over the past week Martin O`Neill has crossed the line with the travelling masses, and respective fans alike into the realms of personal accountability, not a good place to be, with any fan. However, on the face of it, 'the meal` gesture is very generous one, however, once depicted it has a certain irony to it. Full article: O`Neill Can't Polish a Villa Turd

John Carew has admitted he has mixed feelings after scoring a wonder goal against Stoke, to then see our defence give up a two goal lead. Quotes: Mixed Feelings After Wonder Strike

Vital Villa asked for your man of the match vote for the Villa v Stoke game. Stiliyan Petrov, who kicked off the scoring at the end of the first half won with 66% of the votes. He really has become a fans favourite has he not!? James Milner and Brad Friedel both got 9% with Gareth Barry just behind on 7%

Our latest poll was suggested by eltoro. I emailed to make sure he really wanted it asked to which he replied and he did, so who would you rather use as a pinata, Andy Gray or David Platt! lol

Thought for the day: It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
