Is it true Phil Thompson hates Villa?
Well, it must be because when it was suggested he was on his way to Villa some threw hissy fits all over the place !
However I've just had a text from Vital Villa user HH2 saying he was fantastic on Soccer Saturday about Aston Villa AND our new manager Gerrard Houllier.
In a nutshell the pundit said:
Villa are a fantastic club
Villa are a club he has always admired when a player and as a coach.
One of the six best clubs in English football.
He said Houllier would only take another job in England at a top club which Villa are.
He also said that the football philosophy having worked with him is not defensive at all and above all else he wants to win whoever the opposition.
He thinks the Villa squad is full of promise and is better than Liverpool was when Houllier first went there.
In fact, he was very positive on all fronts.
Happy days... Sorry, just trying to spread the joy, I know this won't suit some who just like to have a good old fashioned moan but for the rest, hopefully happy days!
Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
