Injury update for Villa v Bradford PLUS current thinking is the game WILL be on:
Injury Update v Bradford + Match Likely To Be On

Yup, football madness continues: Villa Manager Merry Go Round! Di Matteo Next! LOL

Villa have announced that Sky have picked two live games for Villa in March and both are home clashes. Hate the home games being picked and changed. Been way too many this season. So.. Manchester City is now Monday March 4 at 8pm (was Saturday 2) Liverpool is now Easter Sunday (31st March) with a 1:30pm kick off.

With the transfer window slowly coming to a close - has to be one of the quietest ever surely? - Paul Lambert has again said he won't be spending big if he can pull some deals off. See: Lambert Again Rules Out Big Spending

The Legendary Tash, Shaun Teale, has said Aston Villa should belt out 'We Will Rock You' to bring back the spirit of Tranmere in 1994, to ensure we reach Wembley in ... Queen Can Save Our Cup Dream

Despite the more sensational elements some reports have gone for here, Villa haven't been dumped by Genting, our two year deal is just set to expire.... Genting Deal To Expire

Grizzly: Leftism. In recent games one factor has become apparent. Opposition analysts, having poured over Villa's numbers are clearly telling their managers that they need to target the left side of our defence. With a narrow midfield and inexperienced left backs in Stevens and Bennett, visiting clubs must feel like the seas have parted. See: AVFC... Leftism?

So, we asked: Should Randy Stay Or Go? Poll Date: 15 Jan 2013 Suggested By: MF Seems he is allowed to stay, which is just as well, because he owns the place! But, well, you get the drift of the question, should he stay or go, has he outstayed his welcome. Certainly the criticism has gone from very little to a considerably vocal 'minority` with others questioning what is going on - rightly. I`m sure he is as well to be fair. The result does speak for itself and I`ve let them know: Randy Can Stay (!) BUT Please Communicate?

Post WBA game:

Match report: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, let It Snow. So, was it a point gained fellow Vital Villans, or another two points needlessly tossed away? Sadly I have to go with the latter, as once again we failed to drive home our advantage, gained during the course of a fairly impressive first half performance. After the break we failed to shut up shop at the back, stopped working and chasing, allowing West Bromwich to get back into the game, press us back, and ultimately those all too familiar defensive lapses reared their ugly head yet again to cost us dear.
