Unoial Villa News...



Goalkeeper Andy Marshall has rejoined us with a one year deal to give some goalkeeping cover. Marshall had been released in June but Kevin MacDonald has tempted the 35-year-old back. Quotes: Andy Marshall Returns To Villa!

Fieldy: Andreas Weimann faces a few months on the sidelines as the ankle injury sustained against Rapid Vienna requires surgery. Kevin MacDonald has confirmed the 19 year old striker will require surgery on his ankle, and it's likely he will be out until October. Details: Surgery For The Weeman

Wadey: A pair of socks - how nice!....It feels a bit like Christmas has come early, being a Villa fan right now, as there is a wonderful array of beautifully wrapped parcels glinting in the lights under the tree; and they could be anything. They could be remote-controlled helicopters and missile-firing tanks to scare the cat, and there could be fancy bottles of scotch guaranteed to tingle the tonsils to orgasm at the first sip. There could be all sorts of stuff you never knew you wanted but are in fact, the one thing your life is missing. Full column: Something For The Weekend (297)

General Krulak is still batting the questions in the forums and no doubt reading the threads of doom with 'don't get that manager' and 'don't get that one either' ! GK said: 'I am away for 2 days and the Boards get pretty rough. Full article including HH2 (Vital Villa member) on why this decision is so crucial...

Stephen Ireland should be fit for the away game v Stoke a week Monday... phew. Stephen Ireland Should Be Fit For Stoke

Right, what madness do we have to contend with today?! The Sun have a link that some have already mentioned in the forums. Apparently former Italy manager Roberto Donadoni (I thought he was one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Then again, I need to get our more) is interested in taking the managers job at Villa. + Houllier to be announced Monday? Petrov wants Big Mac? Full article: Teenage Mutant Turtle Linked To Villa Job?

And Friday it was Houllier: So Now The Press Say Houllier But No Sven!

Claire Boden: Domestic football takes a backseat this weekend as international action comes to the fore. Despite Gabby Agbonlahor not being included in Fabio Capello's latest England squad, the three-cap Villa striker has revealed his personal pride when donning the Three Lions jersey. Following England's indifferent World Cup campaign in South Africa this summer, boss Capello earmarked Agbonlahor as a key player for England in the future. Full article: www.avfc.co.uk

Thought for the day: It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.
