Another Mike Field snippet from earlier in the week, Nicky Shorey believes Villa are all set in attack for next season with Gabby, Heskey and the Hulk.

More importantly for Shorey, he believes it's a massive test for all the defenders at the club to play against them in training, as it improves their own game.
