  • There is something better than three points and that’s three points, winning 5-0, having 80% possession, 30 shots and 15 on target. And doing all that with homegrown players. But it’s not more important than three points. The most important thing is winning. Its’s winning and that’s what we did last night. By all accounts, it wasn’t pretty. Yeovil had

  • We've won our opening two games of the season, for the first time since the 1999-00 season and both times showing great character to come from behind. Me, I'm happy and I think most Aston Villa fans are. They're happy because they understand we're not actually at Hogwarts. The football wasn't the best, but it was a decent match and

  • It's been a good week hasn't it. I mean, we've got some interesting new players, we've kept a couple of players that we are, I'm assuming, all very happy that we've kept and to top it all off, it started with three points away from home.

  • This is a sort of season preview post and I say sort of because I don't think I did one last year or the year before and I'm also not going to delve into anything too specific. But despite the harsh reality of facing a third season in the Championship, I do feel optimistic for this one. And even though

  • Not very deep down, most knew that the new owners were not going to appoint Gary Neville as our new manager, or Thierry Henry for that matter. Sensible heads are sensible and appointing someone with zero experience in management, was not wise. Watch what happens this season to others that were bored of the limelight and the game and got

  • I have to tell you, I basically dismissed all this talk of Thierry Henry because for the life of me, I see the idea of appointing someone with zero managerial experience as too much of a gamble. I see it like we're appointing someone that had temporary control of a big Club for a few games or maybe someone that

  • A statement on the Club site tells us that businessman Nassef Sawiris’ group NNS and businessman Wes Edens, will immediately inject significant investment capital into the Club. That's pretty much all it says, but does this mean new owners too? They are apparently both quite wealthy too. Nassef Sawiris has a net worth of US$7 billion according to Forbes in
