Fabio Capello says he is sticking with Villa 'striker' Emile Heskey: Capello said in the Mirror: "Heskey hasn’t played a lot of games.

Craig Gardner has spoken about his younger brother Gary. The 17-year-old is being highly touted and his 22-year-old bro said: "Gary sometimes asks me about his game and I tell him what I have done to get where I am now. I've told him he should keep his feet on the ground and, if he does that, I'm sure he will get his chance because the manager encourages the young lads." Adding, "He's strong, he's good with both feet and he's a quick thinker. He's a good lad and a great professional. Believe me, he will go far."

Fieldy: No he wasn't being lazy by not joining the attack, get this, he was told to play in midfield!!!!! Following the Manchester City game plenty were questioning the Big Man's effort and determination considering he barely got out of our half (yes that is an exaggeration), but he certainly wasn't in the box anywhere near enough, or enough as we'd expect. But there is a valid reason for that, he was told not to. Instead of picking Reo-Coker (who ended up on the right wing for 9 odd minutes), or Gardner, or Delph, Monny told Carew to play more of a holding game to protect midfield and allow Gabby free reign down the channels.

Fieldy: Stiliyan Petrov has his sights firmly set on the Top 4 this season after last season's close shave. Speaking to SSN, Petrov believes our draw against Manchester City shows we can deal with the chasing pack, and after our experience and the disappointment of last season that we are well placed to improve on that. The pundits are all tipping the Top 4 chasers to be the usual Everton, Villa, Spurs and now Man City, with Villa obviously having the benefit of experience from being 8 points clear of Arsenal before our form caught up with us. 'The experience of being in the top four for much of last season was great. The early signs have been encouraging and we are trying to achieve.' Full article: Petrov's Top Four Aim

WAHEY (copyright John Creswell) Wilfred Bouma made a successful 90 minute comeback for the reserves last week. The Dutch left-back, out now for 14 months following an awful ankle dislocation, told the official site "It looks really well now so I feel very positive." Full article: Click Here

Thought for the day: My gran came up to me over the weekend, and warned me that madness runs in the family. But I ignored her - she died twenty years ago.
