Unoial Villa News...
Grizzly Villa... I feel I must roundly and astutely bat away mutterings of abandoning out spiritual home to land developers in favour of a bowl stadium in the east side of the city. Such arguments have grown from disgruntle ground in the last few seasons as the east side development of the city takes place. Since Villa Park first rose out from a Victorian amusement park in 1897 it has grown, through modernisation to become one of the most famous and recognisable stadiums in the country, a UEFA 5 star rated stadium and home to a football team born in 1894, the founding father of the league.

Fabian Delph has declared that this is the best he has felt for a long time following his injury issues. Speaking to the Official Site after being called into the breach on a number of occasions by new manager Paul Lambert, Delph said he was again enjoying his football and physical it's the best he's felt for a long time, so he wants that to translate into much better form and consistency now - which to be fair is why he has his doubters in the fanbase as he either looks brilliant or the moment, or very lightweight and anonymous.

Steve Wade: The politics of envy? I have to say that my initial response to Villa's two-nil defeat at Spurs last week was one of disappointment because although Spurs are listed amongst the good clubs in the Premiership these days and Villa are not, I find myself not quite ready to relinquish my hope that my club of choice, can defy the odds, the form and the numbers, to beat their betters.

Marc Albrighton has said the only thing Paul Lambert has lost on the footie field is his pace. Speaking to the Official Site whilst bigging up the new gaffer, Albrighton offered: 'The gaffer joins in a few sessions and you can see the touch is still there, it's only his pace that's not there. He reckons he had me in his pocket the other day, that was good fun.' See: Lambert's Slow In His Wiser Years
