Our reserve game at Motspur Park has been postponed due to Fulham's involvement in the FA Youth Cup. The game was originally due to take place on February 14, and no new date has been announced yet. The second string return to action when they host Fulham on February 6 at Hinckley.

I`m not sure this is even news to be honest, surely it is obvious? However, transfer talk is in thin supply so hey, lets go for it! Shock horror, Emile Heskey is going to be allowed to walk away in the summer on a free. Well, I`m sure we all feel the same, if he goes, we go... how would we survive?! lol Full article: Can Villa Survive Without Heskey & Beye?

Well, I think most will agree with me, Robbie Keane looked a bit rubbish yesterday?!?!?!?! Ha...! Cut above pretty much anyone else on the pitch wasn`t he? Knows where to pass, creates space, makes the right moves and most importantly, he knows exactly where the goal is. Shame we didn`t get him a decade ago. Oh, by the way, a myth buster. Doug Ellis didn`t stop the move over £500k. Every time John Gregory went to watch him at Wolves, he wasn`t impressing and as JG said later, he wasn`t the only PL manager to miss out on him as he obviously moved abroad.

Robbie has said: 'My record is there and no one is going to take away the goals I scored before I left,' he said. 'But it was my choice to go over there and I haven't really missed the Premier League. I'm only here for a short time. I wasn't looking to come back [when I signed for Villa]. But it was too long a time for me to be sitting around waiting for pre-season and I wanted to start playing again.' From the Independent
