Match day: Blackburn v Aston Villa with banter, links, team news and video

They say you shouldn't mix the grape and the grain. I did last night and now I know why they say don't eve for the love of God, mix the grape with the grain. That is my excuse for this post coming in a little late this morning.

Anyway, we have a match, Marlon Harewood has officially joined Newcastle on loan, Nigel Reo-Coker is back in the squad and we are going to pick up three points today. It's a good day all round.


This is also going to be the one and only post of the day so we are going to be dropping some links, informing you of where you can watch the game online, bringing you some team news and generally taking it easy with some light hearted banter.

Nigel Reo-Coker

This is a good bit of news. He is back in the squad for today and I suspect he will be starting alongside Petrov and Delph in the middle. Many thought his place in the squad was gone after the falling out with O'Neill but O'Neill isn't going to lie to us. On Monday morning it was put to bed and now, Reo-Coker is back in the fold.

He'll play an important role today, but if he looks lazy and not interested, then that will tell us something else.

You'll see a goal from Stephen Warnock. Hopefully he'll do one of those today too.
