New Aussie international pledge Shane Lowry has joined Plymouth Argyle on loan.

Petrov has been talking about Nicky Shorey and says he is happy that the player decided not to move to Portsmouth but to stay at Villa and fight for his place. That was before the left-back was dropped mind you! 'Nicky has had an outstanding season for us in the last few games and we would have really missed him had he left us for Portsmouth.'

Meanwhile Shorey has said he is a bit confused by being dropped: Shorey Confused By Axe

Blimey, look, I've done an article, Fieldy really is beating me to the punch at the moment and in truth, I'm loving the break! lol Vital Villa asked in our last poll: Which MON sale would you like back? (not meant as a negi thing!) The winner was Bolton defender Gary Cahill who many had tipped for big things at Villa with 43% Full results: Gary Cahill Is The One You'd Like Back!

Mike Field: Many of us wondered when news of Richard Dunne's signing broke whether he would be our new captain but apparently Monny hasn't thought that far ahead. Speaking on the official site today, Monny has said he has no plans to make Dunne the captain as he has faith in Stiliyan Petrov's ability to continue to lead the team to victory.

From Friday, you'll have seen the fuss (storm in a tea cup) over the Nigel Hokey-Cokey / MON 'fight', if not: MON On Hokey-Cokey 'My Rules Apply'! and my mature approach to the subject: FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT...? MON v NRC?!

Viz thought for the day: They say football is a game of two halves. Not for me it isn't. I regularly down eight or nine pints whilst watching a live game!
