This is the stuff I love. I know I`m a big softie really. But players getting involved with the Villa Foundation, ‘we support our own` and getting out into the community. Especially good to see Andre, a young player and one who has just been dealt a blow with a hamstring injury.

Love what the Foundation are doing anyway, as many of you know, but this sort of thing to me, for a football club with class, is absolutely essential.

Turns out it did need doing.

  • The thing I don’t get is how come Preston adapted so well to the pitch, and should have won!, but SB blames the pitch and uses it as an excuse for playing ‘direct’ football!?
