David O'Leary has rubbished talk of Eric Djemba-Djemba leaving Villa on loan to a Spanish club. However the player himself is adamant that he wants out. But O'Leary said: 'The Eric Djemba-Djemba stuff just isn't true.' Jumper Jumper says: 'There is no doubt I will move to Spain after the African Cup of Nations. At Aston Villa I have found a coach who hasn't understood all the smoothness of French football.' Full story: Click Here

Interim results show that attendances are down (which is amazing as O'Leary keeps telling us about the attacking football he players) turnover is DOWN to £17.7m from £19million in 2004, the operating loss is UP to £9.4million from £8.8million in 2004 and Villa's net cash from operating activities of £2.0m DOWN from 2004's £4.2million. All in all great interim results for Villa with the Trust and Shareholders Association both condemning the results. Shareholders Reaction, Trust reaction and a typical spleen venting from me! The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Olof Mellberg says Gareth Barry's second yellow card against West Ham United was harsh. The Villa skipper said: 'I thought Gareth's sending-off was harsh. I thought the referee was going to give a booking for diving. I don't know whether he caught him or not, but it didn't look that bad from where I was standing.'

Good news on the Martin Laursen front! The Aston Villa defender, who joined from AC Milan for £3million, says that he is on track to be ready for the start of pre-season training and says he will be 'stronger than ever'. Full story: Click Here
