    • The Villatalk Good Pub Guide
      If you're visiting the O2, you'll be around Greenwich. A couple of regular boozers for me in that neck of the woods are: The Gypsy Moth - this is by the Cutty Sark. If you arrive in Greenwich via. the Thames Clipper, it's the first pub you encounter. Good food in this one, a lovely little beer garden. They used to have an unusual beer selection, but someone bought it out a couple of years ago....I think Taylor Walker or M&B. The Greenwich Union - A meantime pub, and Meantime make a lovely pint. If you're a real ale purist, maybe not for you as Meantime have adopted the American style 'pale ale' revolution everyone is going mad for - so it's all Nitro tap. If you're more up for a traditional pint head next door to Richard I - Probably the best beer in this area. Had a couple of sessions here.

      It's more about the moderation than the product surely ?

      It's not though. I still don't know how you came to that conclusion? Unlike you I never made out that there's only a very slim chance of him staying.

      Those "Good players" are probably about to get us relegated. That indicates to me we really could do with spending 50 million. However , I don't think Lerner will spend that much, so it's academic really.

      Eh, maybe Eddie Jordan there Tegis   (beside Stig).   I wonder how regular they'll all be.  It's a bit much to have 6 on each episode.  Or maybe not.  I dunno.  It just goes to show how much the others were on when they can divvy up the cash amongst twice as many now, one of which (Evans) is no doubt on a pretty penny himself.

      Guy next to the stig is Eddie Jordan.

      The question is how much abuse is a fan entitled to give based on the money they pay? Gate and match day receipts amount to £13m out of Villa's turnover of £117m (9%). £13m divided by 19 games comes to £684k The average gate is 34975 which means the average fan is paying £19.5 per home game towards the cost of running Villa. 59% of that contribution Villa pay out in wages, which is £11.5  Which means the average fan should get around £1's worth of abuse for each player in the team per week. Gabby might be getting £60k a week but how much abuse should he expect from someone only paying him a quid a week?
