'If It's Football, It's Vital'

G'Day Brett!

Chris Herd has welcomed fellow Aussie and barbie lover Brett Holman to the Villa as he thinks the move will be bonzer.

Erm, this 'sarvo' Herdy said he didn't give a Castlemaine XXXX about anything else other then the impending arrival of his new surfing buddy from AZ Alkmaar.

Okay, I haven't watched Neighbours since I was about 14 and that's about all I can remember apart from that annoying advert dealing with budgie smugglers and waxing. Hoo-root!

It's also possibly as far as I'm prepared to go in unfairly stereotyping both Holman and Herdy!

Anyway, speaking to the Official Site Herd said he believed that Holman's move would be a fantastic opportunity for both the club and player, and he expects him to find his feet relatively quickly and bring a nice spark of experience to our midfield:

'Brett's a fantastic player, just look at the amount of games he's played for Australia and AZ Alkmaar, big games in the Champions League and at the World Cup. He has loads of experience, he's won things and that experience will really help us.'

I've been a member here on VAV for a fair while now and I rarely post but as an Australian I had to come forward to say that your attempted use of Australian colloquialisms is deplorable! It's 'arvo', Castlemaine XXXX is mainly a yobbo and old mans beer and I have no idea what a hoo-root is. Although hoo-roo is a term for saying good bye. Like you probably care anyway! You were still funny though MF. See ya mate.

PMSL thank God somebody was prepared to say it! I've been waiting on comments for this all ruddy night! lol

However, I watched Neighbours, it was always 'thisarvo' and I carried the S. XXXX is far better than Fosters, even if I haven't been able to find a pub serving it in the last decade - actually yeah, an old man's beer! Hoo-root, haven't you watched those Fosters adverts with Holly 'mmmmmmm' Valance mate. Maybe I invented the T? Sounds like she says root, not roo but to be honest when she's on the TV my ears aren't my prime sense.

A fair few talk like dickheads in the UK, btw lol

Cheers dude :-)

Chrimbo 03, Enough VB to sink a battleship with Bundaberg chasers- rum n coke in the same can...Genius! The boy will graft his way into our hearts, and Herdy is becoming a must. We lacked legs in the middle of the park and we look a far more competitive and the back four get more protection. Two clean sheets...go figure! 3 points v Bolton- back to back wins and the world looks a lot brighter. UTV

love the optimism OlV, certainly hope you're right, but we need some more goals at the other end though. Lets hope Idiot plays Weimann from the start on Tuesday.
