I get a weird feeling it may be Sam Gallagher. Local young target man it ticks most boxes

Nixon thinks he might have already committed to a club as it's taking too long for the others.

It seems to start off well then tail off into a mumbling dirge of mind boggling inanity.

I could be wrong of course as I don't know the words.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Villa fans genuinely quite complimentary from what I read. Obv fuming at their own side: 'Then, the so called football match, which in reality was one team totally running rings around statues for 75 minutes. We were utterly outclassed. Whereas Cardiff out battled us, this was more a case of this t...

Re: Villa Predictions

3-1 - Mendes in the first few minutes, Swift on about half hour. Goal against the run of play straight after half time (Hogan for them, Hourihane assist) and they start looking like they'll get back into it. Bacuna comes on like a man posessed. Game over.

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

I don't understand why he would want to leave though. Rumours at the Fulham end suggest that the contract Reading would give him: 4 years of stability earning an extra 10k a week than he does at Fulham, would have a role to play. Whereas the Fulham contract offer is similar to what he's earning now...
