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 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. Must admit, the more I read about this guy the more I see what a class manager we now have - also excited about the backroom staff and especially the fact the team have been in for double training, one for fitness and then the afternoon spent on skills and tactics. What a refreshing change! Full article:
Gerard Houllier - Play With Method And Calm

A few reports today including in the Guardian and The Mirror quote Gerard Houllier saying that Emile Heskey forgets how good he is and that he should be up there with Didier Drogba. Houllier said: "Didier Drogba is a fantastic centre-forward who is probably the best in the world. But we have a centre-forward who can do the same. Emile is strong, quick and is powerful and has some attributes that look like Didier. He doesn`t seem to use them as well though. Emile sometimes forgets how good he can be.' Full article:

Fieldy: Luke Young has praised the impact this season of Nigel Hokey-Cokey especially as he believes Villa are a tighter unit with him in the team. Speaking on the Official Site as our resurgent right back echoed Richard Dunne's desire for cleaner sheets, he also added some glowing praise for Nige as he believes the best teams defend as an XI as opposed to relying just on the back 4 and the goalie.

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:
