Great, tv changes for Villa games! Ok, Manchester United at Old Trafford will now kick off at 5:30pm on Saturday December 12 and will be screened on ESPN. Arsenal at the Emirates is now set for December 27 (it was to be played Boxing Day originally) with a daft 1:30pm kick off which will be shown on Sky. That leaves Villa v Liverpool which will now be played on Tuesday 29 December (7:45pm) instead of the 28th and will also be on Sky.

Farnborough's 15-year-old youth team striker Jordan Carter is being linked to Villa with a trial at Bodymoor under way according to the Birmingham Mail.

Stiliyan Petrov has told the Independent that Villa can reach the top four: 'We've shown in the last three seasons that we can compete. We've had good results in that time against the top teams like Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United. We also know what pressure means. We have had it the last two seasons and we need to cope with it again and be more consistent and we hope we can go the same way. The experiences of the past couple of years will also stand the younger players in good stead for the battles ahead.' Full article: Click Here

Fieldy: Gabby Agbonlahor has said he is aware of the importance of putting in a good performance should he get on the pitch in England's upcoming double headers. Speaking to the Daily Mail Gabby admitted that recently he has found his form again after his second half of the season blip and although he's on a decent scoring run for us, he knows he has to make an impact in the following two games if he is hoping to clinch a place in Fabio Capello's eventual squad.

Fieldy: James Milner has applauded his team mates for the way we took the game to Manchester City on Monday night. Explaining his pleasure on the official site, he was obviously disappointed that we couldn't add another goal to proceedings and only walked away with a point, but overall our resilience in defence shone through and that should be our abiding memory.

James Milner is happy that our defenders are now solid: He told AVTV: 'I'm delighted for the lads at the back. It is never easy moving club and settling in. It takes you a while but they all seem to have slotted straight in and that's all credit to them. They are working as a unit straight away and you can see from our defensive record the last few games it has been very solid.'
