You (who) Are The Weakest Link

You (who) Are The Weakest Link
Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by CPAVFC, who or what is Villa's weakest link?

Seems the majority blame the squad depth which is no real surprise, managers have been banging on about it for years, at least we now have a chance of building one.

17% said Juan Pablo Angel our misfiring striker and another 8% blamed Milan Baros.

That left 6% saying inexperience and 3% blamed injuries.

On the subject of depleted squads, there is a BBC1 documentary on Doug Ellis tonight, 7.30pm 'Inside Out'. Interviews with Doug, Graham Taylor, Ron Atkinson and other former Villa managers and players. This was filmed last year - I say that because I was interviewed (thinking it was being shown last Autumn), hopefully I'll have made the cutting room floor only as he no longer really matters, it is the future that is of interest now!

Glen got to disagree, he will go away one day unfortunatly that day is still to come, at the moment he is still reflecting in his reflected glory... wonder if his mirror is big enough?

He loves still being the centre of attention, doing the interviews, facing the cameras. the sad part is it suggests there's still a lot of folk out there who remain keen to hear his words of wisdom.

As for the weakest link in our team right now. Got to be lack of goals.
