Full details and link to forum where we already have some great... and a few dubious (!) suggestions: Design A Villa T-Shirt For Vital Villa

Academy director Bryan Jones says Villa midfielder Craig Gardner can take a lot from his Euro 2009 experience. Jones told the official site: 'He is still a young lad. He is still learning his trade. He still has a lot to learn. I am sure he will appreciate that. He just needs to be patient and bide his time and hopefully the opportunity will come. He is obviously in the manager's thoughts because he has been a squad player now for a full season.' He also says the fact he was captain for the qualifying game v Germany was a 'great boost' for him.
Barcelona and former Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnsen has been linked again, as have potential Martin Laursen replacements Matthew Upson of West Ham and Sylvain Distin of Manchester City.
Mystery seems to be surrounding the injury situation of Villa left-back Wilfred Bouma. Only yesterday the official site had an interview with Nicky Shorey saying he hopes Freddy returns soon, I have to be honest I was surprised to see those comments (Shorey Confident Of Bouma Recovery ) because they fly in the face of the rumours circulating elsewhere!

Steve Wade: With tennis on one channel and the Confederation Cup on another it has been a week of flipping, as I spent my evenings hopping from one sport to the other. I am not that much of a tennis fan but where else can you look up a schoolgirl's skirt and not get arrested? Full article: Something For The Weekend (241)
Thought for the day: 'MOTORISTS: Avoid getting prosecuted for using your phone whilst driving. Simply pop your mobile inside a large shell and the police will think you are listening to the sea.'
