Seven Days of Villa (5)

Seven Days of Villa (5)

Monday, 25th January

Fabian Delph is in the papers a fair bit, as people are full of praise for his performance on Saturday; deservedly so, too.

We also have a couple of fixture changes - the postponed away fixture against Wigan is move to Tuesday, March 16th. As you would expect the game against Wolves on Saturday, March 20th is moved to the early (12:45) kick off. There will be another change at some point to, as we are away at Hull the day before the League Cup final. Ah what the hell, send the reserves, it`ll be okay! ;o)

Tuesday, 26th January

Craig Gardner officially moves to the poorer side of the city. It`s a shame, as I like the lad, and I am all for him getting regular first team football; I just wish it was somewhere else.

Wednesday, 27th January

Villa 0-0 Arsenal. Long ball, Mr Wenger? Really? What a petty - very inaccurate - dig. We`re direct, sure. But long ball? Absolute nonsense! As for the game, it was a close affair. For a few minutes we looked on top, then they did, then we did, then they did… it was entertaining enough for a 0-0 and, in the end, it was probably a fair result. Most of us think we should have nicked it, most Gooners think they should have nicked it, and I guess that about sums it up.

Thursday, 28th January

Barry Bannan extends his loan at Blackpool. Also, it is announced that Nigel Reo-Coker will be out for three months; that is probably his season over. Poor bloke.

In other - and rather brilliant - news, former Villa player Dion Dublin has invented a musical instrument! It`s called the Dube. For more details click on:

Friday, 29th January

One word: BOUMA! He`s back in training. Hopefully he will have an injury free run now. He deserves it, anyway.

Saturday, 30th January

Fulham 0-2 Villa. What goal scoring problem? You know, this is the type of stupid performance that gives me hope! Haha! I mean, it was professional, dealt with in the type of manner that clubs at the top do. We were the better side, we took the lead, got the cushion, then looked relaxed for the most part in defending it in the second half. It makes you wonder why the debacles at places like Blackburn and West Ham happened…

Sunday, 31st January

The end to a decent month is a quiet day. In fact, the quotes from MON are more to do with Wenger than the game yesterday! There is some bad news, in as much as Gary Gardner is believed to be out for about 9 months. That`s a real shame; generally seen as the better of the Gardner brothers, he is one of the most advanced out of the lads at Academy age and hopefully this won`t halt his progress too much once he is back in action. You can`t help but fear the worst, but hopefully he`ll be okay; he looks a very good player indeed.
