Aston Villa v Manchester United: No live text, but maybe plenty of banter

Morning all. I had a good night last night, not too many beers and a lovely meal in China Town and now I am searching for a greasy spoon somewhere near Euston station before taking the train North.

There will be very few updates from me today but if you are a registered user and not able to get to the game by all means let others know what is happening with the comments form below.


There is a rumour doing the rounds that Rooney will tart on the bench and if it is true, it is only Sir Alex preparing his excuses. We are going to win today, I just have a really good feeling about it.

So, I will not be here today, but I hope others will and the match post will also be a bit late, but we do have a bit of news today, so to get started, you can read about Martin O'Neill dismissing talk of him becoming the next Manchester United manager here and you can read about Sir Alex Ferguson taking a swipe at Manchester City here over them letting Richard Dunne leave.

But now, I need the greasy spoon and if just-dom is reading this, I hope your head is okay and if headologist is reading it, I hope you have a nice day, wherever you watch the match. AK, I will see you later and for everyone else, sing loud.
