Unoial Villa News...
Peace out brothers and sisters!

Stiliyan Petrov says that that 31-year-old Villa striker Emile Heskey will settle and show his true colours (I'm assuming they are now claret and blue?!) next season. 'Emile is an outstanding player. He is an England regular so that proves just how good a player he is. He has added further quality to the squad. Sometimes players just need a bit longer to settle in. Emile will come good next season.'
England U21's, who won their group after a 1-1 draw against Germany (with the equaliser coming from a corner taken by Craig Gardner who was captain on the night) will face the tournament hosts Sweden on Friday 26 June. Full details: Villa Trio Hope To Face Sweden For England U21s
