Just a couple of snippets today. Afraid the snippets are about players linked outward not inward. The twitter world was going mad yesterday because apparently a black player was driven to Bodymoor Heath. Not sure how anyone knows it was a player, but hey ho...! No names emerged. I also can`t understand why some are getting upset that Sunderland have agreed to pay £12million (surely £6million too much?) for Wolves player Steven Fletcher BUT yes, I would like a few more links for players inward, in fact sod the links, I`d like to see them in the shirt on the pitch!

All in, Villa put out for £34million over seven seasons. Full article: Behind Closed Doors

Michael Drennan has revealed that the U21's took a huge boost from the half time pep talk made by Paul Lambert in their season opener against Stoke yesterday. Article: U21's Doing The Lambert Talk
