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.

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!
