Vital Villa are currently asking, in a poll suggested by Still Skeggy, should Villa enter the Inter Two Bob cup just in case we don’t qualify for Europe via the league position?

With Blackburn and Tottenham Hotspur already confirmed, would it not prove a decent safety net and give us another way to play Uefa football next season? I must admit I thought they had scrapped the comp but maybe they changed their mind or this could be its last hurrah?! Who knows? Indeed, who cares?

I remember Martin O’Neill saying he didn’t fancy it last season but now he has had further time to settle the squad and get his system going, it will be interesting to see if he is still against the idea.

What do you think, as good a pre-season as any or a competition that makes the season too long for the players? Paul Merson used to say it was a great way to start the season and felt it got the team off to a flying start when the Premiership kicked off.
