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

Hercs in The Dressing Room Post Rapid Vienna

*we join the lads dejected after their Europa League exit, Gabby enters with a beaming smile hobbling on crutches*

Gabby: 'We're all going on a european tour!' Whoooooooo!

*The lads all look at each other sheepishly*

Gabby: Why so glum lads? We're through to Europe, did you see my goal? Ashley was all like 'wheeeeee!' and I was all like 'Pow! Oh yeah Gabby's back baby!'

*the lads remain silent*

Collins: Did you not see the rest of the match Gabby?

Gabby: No ... I was in physio, we did go through, right Habib?

*Beye looks down at the floor and away from Gabby.*

Gabby: Curtis? Tell me we went through ...

*Davies looks up and away from Gabby, a tear rolls down his cheek*

Gabby: You didn't fluff it did you lads?

*Heskey coughs*

MacDonald: Look Gabriel, we um, won't be going on a European tour.

Gabby: What!?

MacDonald: I can um ... Take you to France on the ferry if you'd like?

Gabby: France!?

MacDonald: Euro Disney?

Gabby: Look boss you're not going to fob me off with .... Would Alladdin be there?

MacDonald: I guess he would be.

Gabby: OK ... I suppose.

MacDonald: Besides lads we didn't want to go to europe anyway. We've got a small squad. There are too many fixtures. We're concentrating on the league.

A.Young: Boss you're just reading from 'Villa Managing for Dummies'

MacDonald: No I'm not.

A.Young: It's right there. In your hands!

*Macdonald puts down the book and produces a large bag of sweets.*

MacDonald: Um .... Sweeties anyone?

A.Young: That might work with the under 18s and reserves but it's not going to .... Ooh Wham bar.
