Unoial Villa News…



Did an interview for tonight’s edition of Midlands Today. If it makes it into the programme the interview is about progress at Villa, the fact the General comes onto the Vital forum (and others) to speak with the fans etc. I must say I was looking particularly handsome today and I’m sure it will lead to yet more women stalking and pestering me. Thems the breaks I guess. :o) (Do I need to spell it out that was a joke or will even the thickest see the tongue in cheek nature of the comment, no probably not).

Images of the Holte Hotel renovations, albeit ruined once again by the stamp put on due to the fact they were to be made available to the independent sites. Must admit, I’d rather they weren’t available to us and that the photos were shown without the pettiness added. Ho and indeed diddly hum. Full article: Click Here

Left-back Jlloyd Samuel says on-loan defender Phil Bardsley is exactly the sort of player Villa need in the run in to the end of the season. Stiliyan Petrov is unlikely to be fit for tomorrows game v Watford but should have recovered in time for the trip to Newcastle United on Jan 31st. Full article: Samuel, Bardsley and Petrov

  • Still plenty of feel good stories coming out of VP. All we have to do now is beat Watford and things will be looking reasonably bright again.

  • All happening at the moment, or is it? Young to sing Y/N things moving with Baros Y/N could be make or break time, depending on tomorrows result it could be Judgement Day.
