Unoial Villa News...

I have to say, I`m struggling with the recent quotes from Steve Bruce. In an interview with Gregg Evans at The Birmingham Mail he admits the players must do better.

He should be thinking about offering his resignation if that is the case. Read more: Stan Collymore Rips Into Aston Villa Shambles

Thought for the day: A man goes into a bookshop and asks the assistant "do you have the new book for men with little willies?" The assistant says "I`m not sure if it is in yet"... 'That`s the one' he says, 'I`ll take a copy please'.
