Unoial Villa News...

With the correct sound of Swansea fans baiting us yesterday with 'boring boring Villa` and the Baggies fans singing hoof hoof, I thought I`d look back at what other editors have said when I`ve asked them their opinion of Alex McLeish: What Other Teams Vital Eds Have Said About McLeish

It came down to me to do a match report and frankly, I had better things to do, so here is a link to a zebra instead: Click Here

revdpete says: I was a shocked, upset and down right angry at yesterday (Swansea) as anyone. I really thought we'd turned the corner. When I saw the team (whilst eating my very nice beef bap in the Holte Suite) I was worried. How many times have we proved Gab is not a winger, and yet that's the change you make? I was in two minds as to whether it should have been wholesale changes like were made by Swansea, or exactly the same and bring on 3 later in the game. I think Swansea proved the change was the right thing. Full article: Desperately Sad At Where We Are, BUT....

Speaking to the Official Site after the farce we call the home match against Swansea, the ByEck said of our left back. 'Stevie has had a good season.' That was pretty much the point in the article I quickly gave up the will to read the rest. A 'good' season? Compared to when, last year - which isn't really that difficult. We can all make many, many, many comments about our defence that would be colourful, accurate, and would also show the great ability of the English language to describe in vivid details any event we choose - yet I can't think of many people who would include the word 'good' in any of those attempts at prose.
