'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Villa Times - 12/02/2014

Unoial Villa News...

When all the dust had settled following us speaking to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the vacant managerial position head of the appointment of Paul Lambert, his own words were important in understanding how things played out. For many who see a conspiracy at every corner the fact he didn't take the job was proof positive that Villa weren't good enough to attract a manager with under 50 managerial games to his name at the point. Afterall we sent a jet to speak to him, he must have been the number one choice. See: Can We Put Solskjaer To Bed Now Please?

Football really is a different game now. After being unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup at the hands of Sheffield United, we obviously don't have a game this weekend so the decision has been taken to take the players to warmer climes for a training camp. In manager Paul Lambert's after match interview he explained. See: Villa Set for Portugal Trip

Managers reaction post Cardiff: We'll go again. we'll be fine. I thought we were excellent, I really did. ARrrrgghhhhh..... See: Lambert - Missed Chances & World Class Saves

Turkish Penguin: So, 25 games in and instead of looking to push for a top-half finish, we`re staring that old 'relegation battle' chestnut in the face again. I thought we were supposed to be past all that by now! The reasons for our current (or should I say continuing) plight are legion, but I`d say a large number of issues could be attributed to a lack of belief; from the chairman, from the manager, from the players.

Pre-match: I blame the Atlantic jet stream. It's currently stuck in a low pressure groove, and is in the habit of throwing buckets of wet disgusting weather in our direction. That is why the tree has fallen on the line, forcing the cancellation of the train we are sitting on. This means everyone has to jump off at New Street. See: Grizzly: Villa v West Ham
