@VillasHerc in the Dressing Room Before Fulham
*We join the lads preparing for the match against Fulham. Gabby is jubilant, stood on his chair whilst pelvic thrusting wildly in random directions. N'Zogbia is doing a celebratory russian dance (you know the one where you squat and kick and stuff? ... That one)*
Albrighton: Wow, you guys are happy ... What's happened?
Gabby: Haven't you been reading the papers!? HURGH!! Oh Yeah!
*Albrighton shields his eyes*
Albrighton: Can you not do that AT me?
Gabby: Oh ... Yeah, sorry.
Gabby: Yeah, the big news! Attacking football is coming back to Villa baby!
N'Zogbia: C'est magnifique!
*Albrighton looks nervous*
Albrighton: Gabby, 'sssh!', you know the boss doesn't let us say that word in...
*Gabby and N'Zogbia dance around in a circle arm in arm repeating the word. Albrighton is now scared and confused*
Albrighton: What is going on guys!?
Gabby: McLeish, he's gone.
Albrighton: Huh!? Seriously?
Gabby: Yeah! It's been everywhere! How have you missed it?
N'Zogbia: Oui, Gabriel assures me zis is so.
*Albrighton looks at Gabby sceptically, Gabby reaches into the front of his shorts and pulls out a newspaper cutting, Albrighton wrinkles his nose in disgust*
Gabby: See! Check it out!
*Albrighton leans in to read the headline Gabby points at*
Albrighton: 'Villa Boas Sacked!'? What's that got to do with us?
Gabby: No, it says BOSS not 'Boas' loo....
*Gabby turns the page back to himself*
Gabby: Crap! ... I mean I did wonder why the picture was of AVB but...
N'Zogbia: Mon Dieu! Gabriel! You told me zat Alex was dead!
Gabby (rubbing the back of his neck): Yeah.... Well, um .... I guess it must have been lost in translation.
N'Zogbia: What!? You told zis to me in english!
Gabby: Yeah ... um.... Anyway we've got some cleaning up to do.
*Gabby points to the obvious remnants of a party which also includes a well beaten blow-up doll wearing a 'Mcleish' paper mask in the corner which has 'defending stinks!' written in marker on the forehead.
lbrighton: Wow. You guys really hate defending.
*Gabby and N'Zogbia are frantically tidying up*
Gabby: Don't just stand there! Grab a broom Marc or at least let Emile out of that locker!
*One of the lockers rumbles ominously*
