As the title says: An Interview With A Southampton Fan

And our interview for Vital Saints: An Interview With Vital Villa

Another night being arranged by Lions and Legends... An Evening With Aston Villa LEGENDS

StennyVilla: It was a special moment to be at Villa Park on Saturday in the match v Swansea. Why? To see the two Number 20s come on together in the 70th minute (Luke Moore and Christian Benteke) - the two big freescoring striker hopes of Villa's past and the future. One is no Moore, and one looked magnificent! See: 20 20 Vision At Villa Park

Lawro and Mystic Mug are finding Villa difficult to predict this year. 4 games in and both pundits have only managed 1 correct forecast! Both were wrong again at the weekend, Lawro said a draw, mystic shamed himself with a loss prediction. As you will know, Villa won handsomely!
This week v Southampton (away)? See: Mystic Mug v Lawro - Saints v Villa

Paul Lambert has said he doesn't want fans to view Christian Benteke as our 'saviour' but does admit he's been a handful in training and should have a big career ahead of him. Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the Saints clash, Lambert said of our bulky youngster: Benteke's Been A Handful In Training

Stephen Warnock has dropped to the Championship and joined Bolton on an emergency loan. See: Warnock Moves On

Barry Bannan has taken time out to talk about the away fans and the support they give the team. Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the Saints game, Barry Bannan wanted the away dayers to know how much their support means to the players and pointed to the recent Newcastle game as an example: Bannan The Drum For The Fans

Eric Lichaj has said that Saints will be doubly tough this weekend because they'll be out to avenge the Arsenal result. See: Lichaj Expecting Tough Encounter

Paul Brown: Marc Albrighton would congratulate Brett Holman on his stunning performance against Swansea - if he could catch up with him! Albrighton joked that Holman can't even sit still for his lunch in the canteen at Bodymoor Heath because he's always on the move - just like he was at Villa Park on Saturday. See:

Press conference: Lambert Pre Saints

Southampton v Villa match preview: Lambert never looking back:

Right, that will do for another week, I`m off for a sausage sandwich!

Thought for the day: 'A best man's speech should be like a mini-skirt: short enough to be interesting, but long enough to cover the bare essentials.'

I'm claiming Big Ben as the nickname for Benteke. Copyrighted.
