'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Villa Times - 05/04/2010


Unoial Villa News...



Fieldy: Barry Bannan popped back to Villa recently despite still being on loan with Blackpool, as he took part in the reserve clash against Blues as he picks up his fitness again. The diminutive midfielder has had a good time with Blackpool but has been out injured for a month with a toe injury, prior to being crocked he was racking up the games and although sad to say I missed it, one of the highlights has to be his 'wonder strike' against Coventry in their 1-1 draw earlier in the season. Full article: Bannan Loving Pitch Time

Fieldy: Milner A Capello Top 3 No he hasn't released a song, although being James Milner it would have to be the best song in the world if he did and see Simon Cowell resign so Milner could take over his empire....I digress. In a recent interview with Gol Television the England manager was asked to pick the three players who had impressed him most, and of course Fabio picked Rooney. He also picked Walcott. Yet nobody can argue when he picked our very own Millyman! Full article: Milner A Capello Top 3

Murph: A 6 month long investigation as to the location of former Coventry City goalkeeper Andy Marshall has now ended as he has spoken to the clubs official website about his injury layoff. Marshall, the surprise signing of last season seemingly went underground after just a handful of reserve team appearances, further baffling Villans as to the actual point in acquiring the veteran goalkeeper on the back of Stuart Taylor`s departure to warm the FC Abu Dhabi-Manchester bench. Full details: The Andy Marshall Riddle: Solved!

Fieldy: Nathan Baker is back in full training at Lincoln City after damaging his ankle at the end of January. It is likely that Baker will be considered fit and raring to go for their next clash against Cheltenham but if all else fails he should be right for the East Monday Morecambe match.

We have an interesting new poll, suggested by Matt777, just gone live. Put simply, he wanted to know, (in best Highlander voice...) THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE... Villa to win the FA Cup, Villa to finish 4th or England to win the World Cup? Easy one for me, FA Cup... 1957 was the last, that is far too long a wait. I want to see our boys lift it in my lifetime and when they do, I'll cry like a baby! What say you, which is your preferred 'win' ?

Steve Wade: I think most boys and girls will agree, it was a pretty miserable week, all round. Seven is supposed to be a magic number but it didn't feel that way. It was less the seven joys and more the seven sorrows. Less the seven virtues and more the seven deadly sins. It might have been seven heavens for at least two teams in blue but it was the number of doors in hell for the claret and blue fraternity. Full article: Something For The Weekend (276)

What a refreshing change to see the Sky Sports Sunday football show 'Sunday Supplement' choose to discuss a team other than Manchester United and Chelsea. Seriously guys, look a little further down the table and you will see 18 other teams. Ok, sometimes they'll discuss Liverpool and Arsenal and the odd mention of the money spent at Manchester City but other than that, you just sit there waiting with baited breath (or in my case if I've had a curry the night before, sit there waiting with bad breath) for the mention of another club or manager!
Today I got my wish. They discussed none other than Martin O'Neill ... yeah, they spoke about Aston Villa. WOW! Full article (and some interesting article comments): 'Over Sensitive' MON & Villa's Glass Ceiling?

Thought for the day: I've just been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder.I don't know whether to be happy or sad.
