The Week In Villa (6)

Wednesday, 5th September

There is very little going on today other than the odd interview with or about new signings. I am sure some of them are chomping at the bit to get going.

Thursday, 6th September

Again, a quiet day. Hutton and Warnock are both in the squad of 25. Fair enough. As for the internationals, Brett Holman came on for Australia and set-up the 3rd goal.

Friday, 7th September

Yet another non-news day really; Gareth Barry had some very nice things to say about Stan Petrov.

Saturday, 8th September

The reserves (or developmental league is it now?) featured Gabby, Ashley Westwood and Jordan Bowery. Defender Daniel Devine (sounds like a superhero) scored both goals in a 2-2 draw. Maybe he is a superhero!

Alan Hutton says he gets on fine with Paul Lambert and is frustrated but willing to work hard. Commendable, but ultimately, I suppose the nicest thing I can say about him is he should never have been signed, so I suppose it's not his fault he was given a job that he isn't good enough for.

Sunday, 9th September

Stan talks for the first time since his remission. Chances are you'll have seen the comments so I won't go over them, but it's just great to hear from him and in such a positive state.

Villa ladies beat Charlton with goals from Katy Wilkinson and Carly Davies.

Monday, 10th September

A stir is caused by the banning of the Petrov banner. It's down for a minute and is passed along, so it's overhead for what, a couple of seconds, then folded back together. Are people actually putting in complaints about that? Blimey. You know Stan's problems? They're real problems worth moaning about.

A host of names get together for the Pedal for Petrov dinner, an incredibly impressive cause with great efforts by those involved. A host of old faces were at the dinner, including BOUMA. Also there were Gareth Barry, Ashley Young, Nigel Reo-Coker and Curtis Davies.

Tuesday, 11th September

Andi Weimann says he is looking to push on this season. Problem for him - and Bowery for that matter - is that you would look at it and say that Bent will play, with Weimann as his back-up and Bowery will be back-up to Benteke. But Gabby can do both roles so is likely to play before either Weimann or Bowery, and it's very conceivable that he could be in the team ahead of Bent or Benteke. Ironically, Delfouneso will probably have a more productive season than Weimann or Bowery. You know, if he puts some effort in.

And that my friends, is that. At least there will be some football to discuss next week!

Please please please could someone who attends the youth games do an expose on Jordan Graham. Apparently, both Chelski and City tried to come in for him to the tune of 5m, in the window. I've Youtubed him and he loos frighteningly fast - alot like Alex-Ox and Lennon - literally untouchable in some of the videos. When you talk about wingers and you see Sterling at Liverpool - then you can easily compare. Any takers?

Jordan seems to have a lot of the skill N'Zog has decided he no longer has: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abnZ7fVtlYI

Well here you have it Fear - we have the best Jordan around! Lee282: thanks mate, already seen it though. Looks the business eh guys - the new modern football midfielder: diminutive, fast, skillful, incisive short and long range passes, Alex-Ox who?

I have heard very good things about him, this is the problem with not being able to see the reserve league like we could back in the day, I saw plenty of Bannan, Albrighton, Clark, Lichaj, Delfouneso, Herd, Weimann before they got near the first team
