OK, this always happens when Villa start doing well, some doom merchant comes along and implies there is trouble at t'mill or that the manager is on the war path. I didn't do anything on this article yesterday because unlike the paper it was in, I wanted to get my facts straight first. Tom Evans? Never heard of him, asked someone else at People also and I am not sure they have either. Hmmm, must be 'close' to the club though surely, I mean, he has a 'source' for this back page article. Well, I'm not sure anyone at Villa have heard of him either. Well, according to this Tom Thumb, sorry, Tom Evans, MON is chasing Randy Lerner for cash and Randy has said the cupboard is bear and that MON would have to make do with youth players and loan dealings.

Villa's reserve team fixture against Portsmouth has been rearranged for Monday April 26 with a 7pm kick off.

Voiceoftheholte: The Premier League have cynically 'leaked' the idea of a play off for the last Champions League place. This is purely done to gauge the views of the fans on forums such as this, before announcing that an official review will be taking place (or not as in the case of the 39th game).

Whilst on the subject, we asked in our last poll, suggested by villa_de: Champ League qualification: Keep it as it is, top 4 qualify 35% 4th place to FA Cup winners 31% 3rd place to FA Cup, 4th to League Cup winners 20% Top 3 + play off between 4th-7th 11% Top 3 PL team + 4th between 4th and 5th 3%

Well, one minute we are being told that Martin O'Neill should be the next England manager now we have him being touted as the next Manchester United boss. What is so wrong with him being Villa manager and building an empire here?! Then again, there is little loyalty in this game, it is a job and players / managers come and go with the best offers and biggest wages, no different to the 'real world' really is it? Anyway, former England striker and now BBC presenter Gary Lineker has told the Mail online that MON is perfect for Man Utd. Full article: Martin O'Neill Should Be Next Man Utd Boss?!

Thought for the day: Just came home and found my girlfriend dead in the washing machine. Gutted. Still, at least she died in COMFORT!.

Man of the match v Wolves. Seems more a vote for the best of the worst really doesn`t it?

Aston Villa:

Apologies for the title - I was looking for an inspirational Bruce quote. Unfortunately, the 'Bruce` I came up with was Forsyth rather than Steve.
