Fieldy: Martin O'Neill is confident the team will hit the ground running as preparations for the new season began. preparations for the new season began today. Speaking on the Official Site following the first training sessions of the new season O'Neill was pleased with what he saw from the players in attendance - obviously those on World Cup duty have been given extra time off to have a break - and he is looking forward to the league opener against West Ham as well as our two leg Europa League play off. 'First of all, I think the most important thing is the kick off itself.' Full quotes: O'Neill: We Will Hit The Ground Running

Fieldy: Stiliyan Petrov on the day he returns to training. Following on from his comments about Richard Dunne, Laursen turned his attention to our new captain and restated some earlier thoughts about him. Click Here for full article. With a refreshed and in some cases renewed Gabby, Ash, and Downing looking to terrorise defences next season, Laursen thinks that Petrov playing the anchor role will be key to their success. 'Stiliyan played a lot of games last season and he was important for the team in all of them. He is the captain and he is acting like the captain.' Full article: Petrov Key For Villa

Fieldy: Such a strange headline, and quite frankly I'd have ignored it unless the man had really said it himself...that said I wouldn't go quite that far... Laursen: Dunne Is Better Than Me

Not sure this is really new information but a report by Tim Gray in The Daily Star claims Martin O'Neill has accepted the fact that James Milner wants out and so will do a deal as long as it involves Manchester City players in exchange. The report says both Stephen Ireland and Nedum Onuoha + £15million in cold, hard cash will be the asking price. + Scott Parker link: Mega Deal For Villa + Scott Parker? Press Links

Fieldy: Emile Heskey strongly believes that Nathan Delfouneso will make the grade for England and will become a household name during the U19 European Championships.

Fieldy: Emile Heskey believes that Villa would provide a great backbone for England as Capello looks to rebuild. Speaking on the Official Site Heskey referenced the core of young, English players at the club that could well figure for England as we head towards the European Championships. 'As well as James, there's English players in Downing, Young and Agbonlahor.'
Emile doesn't think that it will be all change under Capello now, the whole team won't be scrapped (sadly), but there will be plenty of room for the next generation with only a few key experienced players left to ease them in. Full article: England's Bright Claret and Blue Future

Fieldy: Steve Froggatt is becoming a regular on the Official Site these days, and today his topic of interest is Gabby Agbonlahor. Our former left winger believes that next season we will see even more improvement from Gabby, but given how he worked over last season to bulk up, Froggatt expects he will have used his England disappointment as motivation to work on other parts of his game this summer.
