Vital Blackpool asked how likely Villa are to re-call on loan Barry Bannan. Me being an - ahem - expect - cough - on these things gave them an answer! Vital Blackpool said: 'Aston Villa are likely to allow an extension of Barry Bannan's loan deal at Blackpool......that's according to the editor of Vital Villa!' Not quite what I meant really, I don't know if they will extend it, just that it is unlikely he'll be needed for our first team just yet...!

Speaking on the Official Site Big Brad didn't want to talk so much about the string of fine saves he made during the Spurs match, preferring instead to talk about the 'collective' team effort needed when it comes to clean sheets.
