I've an awful flu-like chest infection right now, so there are two boxes waiting to be unboxed. I'm frustrated.
So for now I am giving away a prize, which is great if you love Star Wars!

It was the 14th of February this year, when the Sherwood love affair with Villa started. The following day saw the first signs of Sherwood's influence, when he visited the dressing room at halftime to help inspire the team to a 2-1 win over Leicester in the cup.
Before that, we were heading for yet more disappointment - with another frustrating first half performance, the sort we were used to under Lambert. But after leaving his seat in the stands and giving a morale boosting talk, a different
I've seen some really bad things happen at Villa, in my time as a fan. Losses in league cups to lower league teams (Scunthorpe, Sheffield United) but I have never felt so deflated and depressed as I do at this moment.
Don't get me wrong, Bradford deserve their massive achievement 100% and I wish them all the best for the final.
But whilst this is their finest hour, this is also my clubs darkest hour and I am not sure we can pull this around in time to save our premiership status.
It's become a matter of great discussion, about how important Darren Bent is to our future prospects and success. For what it is worth, if we had Young and Downing supplying from the wings, I would have Darren Bent in the team every single week. The problem is, we do not create the chances Darren thrives on, and thrived on under the attacking threat from both Downing and Young.
Simply, without the ammo, Darren is less of a threat.
In my eyes, we cannot risk playing somebody who offers
Then I am confusing things....because I agree on that point or the 6 pointers.
But maybe you underestimate "fight" and maybe I over estimate it.
was it Gary Player who once said " The harder I work, the luckier I get".....fight does not eliminate it entirely, but it raises the odds of you being lucky.
Look everyone has their opinion about " fight" and the levels of it....its clear we differ.....but just as 1 example amongst many, when you lose so many second balls, not just against Leicester, I question the levels of fight amongst other things of course.
Well that game will be interesting for me.....but I can tell you like us that we were a tad unlucky against the scouse....I don't think they have lost away so far, might be wrong, but that would do for me if it was Villa.
Also worth pointing out that Sheff utd are 7 points above the relegation places. And I think it's fair to say that their main asset this season has been their will to compete, regardless of the opposition.
How many times do commentators need to say “it’s unlike Salah to miss a chance like that” before they realise that it is in fact like him to do so?
This is like when Bacuna was referred to as a free kick specialist for years because he scored one once.
Limiting it to just the top 3 seems a bit unfair(especially considering they've only played 2 of the top 3). Surely when we're talking about stronger teams than us, it would be more than just the top 3? If you include the top 6 Sheffield has manaaged to draw against Man United, Wolves and Chelsea, quite impressive. If we're looking at the top 10, they've beaten Crystal Palace and Arsenal as well as drawn against Tottenham, in fact they've played almost everyone in the top 10 and out of the top 10 only lost to the top 2.
You're confusing two separate things here. My point was simply that our six pointers against relegation contenders are more important matches in the grand scheme of things. Norwich would have been better off losing to Man City and beating us.
I obviously want us to take some big scalps this year (Man Utd and Arsenal were there for the taking, but we'll have another pop at both of them at Villa Park). But you only beat Liverpool, City and Leicester this season if the luck goes your way. They are just significantly better than the other 17 teams in every department, and while "fight" does narrow the gap, it doesn't eliminate it entirely.
That's not the same as saying we shouldn't try to beat them, or that it's impossible to beat them.
(Also worth pointing out that Sheffield Utd, who are perceived on here to be an example of what Dean Smith should be doing, haven't taken a single point off the top 3. Barely anyone has.)
