Really: Aston Villa v Sunderland with team news

I put up the match post too early and it turned into a debate on something else other than the match - it even ended up talking about the transfer window. I'm changing that now - all match stuff is going to go here as we hear about it.

We will start with team news and updates as and when we get them and in case you didn't already know - this is an important match.

Aston Villa Team


Big Brad, King Carlos, Ricardo Dunne, The Ginger One, Stephen Warnock, Webcam, Stiliyan Petrov, Milly, Stewart Downing, Emile Heskey and John Carew.

No changes from the Wolves match.

Watching at home

I have no doubt someone somewhere will drop a link but there is this one - but you really should hurry and not wait three minutes before kick off.

Ninety four minutes of updates

During the match, updates will be posted here in the comments section but also here on Twitter. You can follow us on both or even get involved.

So, ninety four minutes of football coming up. Three points desperately needed and you know what, we really should get them.
