You`ve got to laugh!? Haven`t you? Joke: Alex McLeish v Sir Ron Of Saunders (Joke)

Hmmm, not sure this has gone down well, also not convinced it is true to be fair. Do they look like players 100% behind the manager? Robbie Keane has insisted that the players at Villa are 100% behind the manager. Speaking to Talksport our former loanee said that fan unrest wasn't helpful to the team and that contrary to opinion, the players are completely behind the gaffer. 'I heard someone saying about the manager that the players are not behind him but that is totally wrong. I have only been here a short space of time but I can see the players are 100% behind Alex McLeish.' Full article: Robbie Keane: Players Are Behind The Manager

Title says it all: More Fixture Changes

Alex McLeish has given a mini injury update on Stiliyan Petrov and Alan Hutton. Speaking to the Official Site McLeish said that Petrov would return to full training on Thursday ahead of the Blackburn game, after working individually with Adrian Lamb our fitness coach.

And... Petrov Back For Blackburn

Errr... why? Stephen Ireland has said he will end his International exile following the European Championships. Speaking to the E&S Ireland explained that he felt the time was right to make himself available to Ireland again and mend some bridges along the way, but he wouldn't do so before the European Championships as it would be unfair for him to capitalise on the hardwork that others had done in securing qualification.

The new date for the 18 pointer against Owen Coyle's Bolton team has been set. The game was due to take place on March 18 but has been postponed due to their continuing participation in something called the FA Cup. It's a name a remember from history, but I don't think it's been of interest to us for the last few years. The new date has been set as March 20 and it'll kick off at Villa Park at 7.45pm.

Tony McAndrew has expressed his delight at seeing an all Academy midfield turn out for the first team against Wigan. Full article: McAndrew Delighted With Academy Midfield At Wigan

Villa have announced a record £53.9m loss for the last financial year, although revenues have grown to equally record levels. Now I haven't seen the figures myself and there are better placed on the forum to give their thoughts, I'm going off the figures published by the Official Site earlier today.

Barry Bannan has praised Scotland boss Craig Levein and the SFA for the support they showed him over the drink/drive incident and he's determined to repay that faith: Bannan Praises Levein For Support

Darren Bent has said how gutted he is to be out with injury. Taking to twitter to vent his frustration, our record signing said: 'I'm gutted to be out for so long at such a crucial part of the season. Hopefully my recovery will be as quick as possible and thank you to everyone for your messages of support.'

Alex McLeish has tipped Andy Weimann to step up to the plate following the injury to Darren Bent. Weimann has received glowing praise recently from Bent for his finishing prowess and following his two recent hatticks in the second string McLeish has told the Official Site: Weimann To Step Up
