I have had a lot of calls, even from my friends in Holland, asking me about the stories. When people read things like this, some believe them. But things are going really well.'

Vital Villan: James Milner has revealed today that the settled nature of B6 these days has helped him improve as a player. Speaking on the official site, Milly loves the fact he is now at a harmonious club with no manager merry-go-round or takeover talks looming over playing matters, and contradicts many fans views that players don't actually get embroiled in the off pitch antics of their employers. 'Has the move helped me to progress? Massively. It's not easy when there's always talk of your manager getting sacked and turmoil at the club and off the field problems. It doesn't help you get on with your football so obviously it was a good move for me.' Full article: Villa Stability Key To Growth

Claiming boldly that the two players have transformed the appeal of the team does seem a stretch too far given our end of season form, but you can see the point he is making when we have both players on form and flying on all cylinders.
