I must say I`m surprised there is any sort of debate at all around the postponement of the Villa v Bolton game, but then, football and the debates surrounding it never cease to surprise me!

Shay Given has described Carlos Cuellar as 'cool and calm' in defence, adding he's been a towering presence since he returned to the side. Speaking to the Official Site Given hailed Cuellar's consistency and versatility, and he thinks he's formed a brilliant partnership with Collins since the injury to Dunne: Shay Given Hails The Calming Tower Of Cuellar

Gabby Agbonlahor has said he has his sights focused on Dwight Yorke's Villa record, but he doesn't mind if he doesn't make it this season. Speaking to the E&S the 26 year old said he would love to surpass Yorkie's league goal record - he sits 6 shy - but whilst it would be nice to reach it this season, he won't beat himself up if he doesn't: Gabby Looking To Bar Yorkie From Record Top Spot

Daniel Johnson has today put pen to paper on a new one year extension. This means the midfielder will now stay at the club until at least June 2013. The 19 year old has been making steady progress this term, looking very impressive in reserve clashes and finding the net 6 times (3 in the NextGen).

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. Full quotes: G'Day Brett! ...

Chris Herd has described Andi Weimann`s goal against Fulham as career changing, and he now believes the young Austrian will go from strength to strength in the first team.

CEO Paul Faulkner has talked about our 'challenging season' but he remains confident we are moving in the right direction. I'm not going to go back over the recent financials, suffice to say we all know the state we were in with wages and our position now isn't anywhere near as bad as the headlines of record losses suggest when you knuckle down and look at the specifics.....So it's no real surprise to see Faulkner say he's confident in the direction the club is heading.
