  • I didnt realise Randy was actually driving us down there personally! I’m sure he’ll love a big rendition of “The wheels on the bus go round and round!”

  • Yes deano, think I’m totally right (for right replace with totally wrong) that Randy will be driving.

  • Week follows week, yet still nothing negative appears in The Villa Times. I could really get used to this being positive.

  • I’m going to have to work harder at moaning I think!? Just all feels so different now we are all pulling in the same direction doesn’t it? I do miss my occassional rants though!

  • It’s Ok Jon, we’ve still got some doom and gloom merchants, miserable bu*gers, I am sure they are more than capable of moaning enough for everyone. but if you feel like a rant, go on, let it out, you’ll feel much better, if you cant find anything to rant

  • Its weird isn’t it? We’re all happy with what’s going on at the Villa….can anyone remember the last time THAT happened?
