'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Villa Times - 24/03/2009

Unoial Villa News...



Ok, not much news about today and I guess over the next week with the international break (blinking international's, they just get in the way don't they!?) it might get even quieter! Anyway, a shorter than usual round up:

Vital Villan: Marlon Harewood has joined Wolves on loan until the end of the season. Full article: Harewood Loaned To Wolves

Vital Villan: Brad Guzan has admitted any joy he may have felt about finally making his Premier League debut was completely overshadowed by the result. Full quotes: Bittersweet League Debut

The regular column by Villa4Europe: The Big Issue (4)

Villa's appeal over Brad Friedel's red card has been won so he can face Manchester United in our next game. Common sense prevails. It was a penalty, no one would claim otherwise, but no way did the referee have to send the keeper off! Good news, it means Friedel can play v Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Villa reserves beat Stoke City 1-0 last night at Villa Park. Freddy Boom Boom Bouma set up the goal for James Collins. That puts Villa within touching distance of winning the league again.

Vital Villan: Gabby Agbonlahor has been drafted into the U21's side to face Norway and France. Gab will join up with Gardner and Milner in Pearce's squad. They will then travel to Norway later this week for the clash at the Kimplett.no Arena in Sandefjord on Friday (5.30ko), before returning to England to face France in sunny Nottingham at the City Ground on March 31 (8pm ko).

Vital Villan: Martin O'Neill believes that our younger players will learn a hell of a lot during our current 'difficult' spell. Speaking on the official site he explained that he believes the players can benefit from experiencing the lows and disappointment of a Top 4 challenge and by learning about how tough the demands are on players when they want to compete at the top. ''They have to experience this. This is what it's about if you are going to go and play at the very top.' Full article: O'Neill Takes The Positives From The Blip

Not the longest VT I've ever done !
Not surprised that the Brad Friedel red was overturned. Common sense prevailed. It does however suggest that the ruling needs to be looked at, and hopefully revised. As things stand you can well understand other clubs being critical of the premier leagues decision to cancel the red.

MON is quite correct when he suggests that our younger players will learn a lot from our recent slump, indeed the whole season as a whole could/should have been a learning curve. I like the look of young James Collins who is currently working his way up through the ranks. He has certainly impressed at youth team level, and it looks as if he's continuing his progress at reserve team level. Good Luck to him.
