Unoial Villa News…

A great article used with the permission of Heroes & Villains

Okay, so it’s stretching it a bit to call the thirty-three-year-old, veteran of over 400 senior games, now retired from international football after winning fifty caps, Alan Hutton a kid but he has definitely been the most resilient of Villa players in recent years. Signed from Tottenham for around £4 million by Alex McLeish, alongside perma-injured team-mate Jermaine Jenas, on summer transfer deadline day in August 2011 Hutton has been discarded, isolated, loaned out and reinstated by a succession of Villa managers in the last seven seasons, only to win his way back into the first team and be afforded semi-legendary status by our supporters.

 Please tell me that this is a joke?

There seems to be growing talk on the Twittersphere that some fans might be looking at a pitch invasion tomorrow night if Aston Villa win the semi-final of the play-offs.

Yup. Worth repeating. A pitch invasion for winning a two-legged game v Middlesbrough!

Fair enough, it gets us to Wembley, but this is the play-offs, we’ve won nothing, yet. I’d not even go on the pitch IF we won the play-off final. It’s still coming 3rd isn’t it? It’s massive, it is needed and I hope and pray we win and get promoted, so don’t get me wrong. But come on. Really?

Jack Grealish put in a superb display against Middlesbrough on Saturday, and it’s great to see the playmaker making such a big impact in such a crucial match.

The club’s official Twitter account was also fulsome in its praise for our no.10:
