No I don't get that headline either, but anyway, Nigel Hokey Cokey has admitted he is almost lost for words after our Peace Cup victory.
Speaking on the official site today, Captain Cokey also stated that already having a Trophy in the cabinet before the season kicks off has made the players determined to enter the 'real' season with the right frame of mind ie a winning mentality.
'If I'm honest I'm a little bit lost for words. It has been a very tough tournament and the lads have worked really hard. We performed really well, played some great stuff and showed a lot of character.
'It feels good. That's what it's all about. It's a winning mentality and that is something that has got to stick for the rest of our time here at Aston Villa.'
Taking time out to praise the youngsters specifically for our victory, he added:
'We've had to adapt to a lot of training and we've lost a lot of players too for different reasons. But I think credit has to go to the young boys that came in.
'To come in to such a high level competition, perform as well as they did and to beat the likes of Juventus - a world famous club - it's a tremendous achievement.'
It's certainly put most of us back on a high and enthusiasm for the campaign ahead is now high, hopefully we'll see the right people come in and we can all be smiling come the end of the season.
