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

The Villa Times - 20/05/2012

Unoial Villa News...



Ok, this has turned into the Ole Gunnar Solsjaer show... so lets just go with the headlines links:

To sign off the night after more Oleizms in Norway, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been quoted saying, if an offer comes in, and if he accepts, he would want to be in place for pre season. I Would Want To Be In Place For Pre Season

Including a video of his press conversation: OGS Press Conference & Bits (Updated Twice)

The anger was growing before anyone really knew what was going on, I asked: Why Panic. Ole Hasn't Been Offered Anything YET

I was updating this as the story was developing, kept me busy at least: Ole Goner...? Press Say Not Coming (Updated)

Huge backing from the fans, almost unbelievable this Ole mania... MASSIVE Backing For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The yes/no continues with nearly 88% saying yes... Solskjaer. Yes or No?

As the title says really: Daily Mail Say Villa Have Spoken To Martinez

Neil Moxley at www.dailymail.co.uk has an interesting article this morning. Apparently Ole Gunnar Solskjaer flew back into a bit of a storm in Norway as his current club Molde (and former Wimbledon) owners (or major investors at least) weren`t too happy that he`d jetted off without their permission to talk to Villa. Full article: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer In Norwegian Hot Water?!

Bit of fun, Ole uses the Xbox to prepare! Article: www.sundaymercury.net

With all this manager malarkey you could be forgiven for forgetting that their was some football today. The Hong Kong Soccer Sevens returned in style, and so did our youngsters! Article: Villa Progress In Soccer Sevens

Martin Laursen: I have been following the goings-on at Villa with great interest over the past few days. I read the comments of the board following the departure of Alex McLeish concerning their desire to bring in a manager to add vibrancy to the club. I wholeheartedly agree with that approach. They have that spot on, definitely. I believe the key is to bring someone in who will get the fans right behind the club again.

Capello snubs Villa (spoof) ... Capello Snubs Villa

Paul Lambert is apparently set to be interviewed on Monday: Click Here

Darren Bent is looking to help Villa become one of the big hitters next season - so he can avoid the jitters! Bent says he's the world's worst watcher of football when he's out injured. And Villa's record-signing admits it was a nightmare to sit in the stands and see the team suffer last term in his absence. Full article: www.avfc.co.uk

Aston Villa have released a brief statement following the speculation and confirmation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a person of interest in the press. The statement on the Official Site reads as follows: Club Statement On Manager Search

As Villa step up their pursuit of a new manager, it has possibly escaped many people's notice that it's exactly 25 years today since the club made one of their most important appointments on the modern era. On May 18 1987, Graham Taylor departed his 'job for life' at Watford, leaving behind chairman Elton John to follow the Yellow Brick Road to Villa Park. Blog: Hoping new boss is Taylor-made just like 25 years ago

Rob Bishop text chat with Petrov:

Rob: Will you be around to do the column today?
Stan: Who knows?
Rob: What do you think?
Stan: We'll see.
Rob: It's a good job I like you or you'd drive me crazy.
Stan: It's a good job I like you otherwise you'd be in trouble. You're a lucky, lucky man.
Stan: You will miss me when I eventually leave Villa.
Rob: I will retire when you leave Villa.
Stan: No. No. No. No. Don't do that. Full blog: Blog: Petrov text message humour evidence of super spirit
