Merlin has done a lovely article on Villa on his Vital site, I thought, hey, why not link it. I'm like that, full of spiffing ideas. Chelsea - Memories of Villa Park #1 If Chelsea never existed there`s a fair possibility that Aston Villa would have been the club I`d have chosen to follow.

Florent Malouda has been talking to www.chelseafc.com about our new manager ahead of the silly kick off time clash for Chelsea this evening at Villa Park. Some great quotes from Malouda on Gerard Houllier.

What a refreshing change! Full article:

Steve Wade: England frailties exposed by less than the full Monte. It was another night to forget for England fans this week, after our boys seemed to allow themselves to be bullied by a resilient but un-ambitious team from Montenegro. An absence of quality in and around the penalty area, aided and abetted by a German referee, made for a miserable night of frustration for the England players and fans alike. Full article:
