  1. It sounds to me as though the Blosers could be bullshitting on this one: Peter Pingu is apparently the source of the "Villa approached Blues" e-mail, and finally some media outlets (the BBC website) are now including important details such as: 1) Blues are clearly quoted as the source of the story; and 2) Villa haven't made a comment. Now unlike Sky, the BBC doesn't have, or constantly advertise a bookmaking business (Skybet) that makes a tidy sum from all this speculation. It wouldn't surprise me if Pingu is making all this up. He wants to paint McLeish as the villan (no pun intended) after he jacked and has generally been supported for doing so. Pingu sounds like a bit of a loose cannon, describing his own manager as "...no Mourinho" and offering backhanded support - "Sure you're job's safe, as long as you get us promoted in one season".

  2. Does anyone else get the feeling that SSN is just a 24hr advert for Skybet?
  3. Or: Hughes to Everton, Moyes to Chelsea, Benitez back to Liverpool and Dalglish to Villa Park! Queen to pawn 3. Last train to Clarksville Two to Tango.
  4. Wow - you're right. It's also almost* an anagram of "ITS A WELL KNOWN FACT THAT YOU OBTAIN SEXUAL GRATIFICATION FROM ROOT VEGETABLES" * if you add a few more letters, like ! This is so not true. Where's the Z? I think you'll find I never wrote that. It must've been someone who looked just like me
  5. Also, Houllier is actually French for O'Leary, which is Welsh for O'Neill. And if you stew cranberries like applesauce, they taste more like prunes than rhubarb does.
  6. I don't think there's any "perfect" way of doing this. It seems that the club have a short-list of potential managers, and naturally, they'd like to interview them. Martinez was clearly one of the managers on that list, and in order to get the opportunity to speak to him, we had to make an official approach to Wigan. We did that, but Martinez chose to stay at Wigan. It's all worked out very well for Wigan and Whelan, who've been very complimentary about us and the way we go about things. Unfortunately for us, it's given Whelan a bit of publicity, and some more sensationalist parts of the media are calling this a snub. We didn't speak to him, so there can be no rejection or snub is nothing's been offered. A bit of an anticlimax - but be patient and watch this space.
  7. I don't think Martinez is ready to manage a big club yet. If he'd steered Wigan to a couple of top 10 finishes, with maybe a good cup run - he'd be worth considering. To put in perspective, he's not achieved as much as Curbishley did at Charlton - and I think we all feel the same way about Curbishley as Villa manager.

  9. ^^This^^ steaknchips mate, just because they are foreign and have had some success with the biggest clubs in their country, doesn't mean that they're gonna come here and suddenly turn us into Barcelona. Moyes and Hughes may not be as "exciting" but I'd like to see all these over-hyped, overrated foreigners do a good job with the smaller - medium teams in the Premier League as Moyes and Huges have done British jobs for British workers? Allardyce????
  10. Frank Rijkaard, oooooooooooops Yeah, right - what's he ever won?!!! Blinkered, ill-informed, puddle of arse-drippings. Took over a struggling Barcelona, reinforced the youth policy with Guardiola's appointment of Barcelona B, won the European Cup and ended R Madrid's dominance of La Liga. If Moyes does leave Everton for us, he'll ring far more changes than Houllier tried to bring. He's assembled a very hardworking and loyal squad at Goodison. It takes time to bring in players to get them to play for you - and that'll be time that most Villa fans won't give him. Jol might be a go-er, but hasn't got the pedigree of Rijkaard. Incidentally, Rikkaard's current deal with Galatasary expires on Sunday, whereas Moyes is under contract until 2013. Read into that what you will !
  11. I don't think we can start with all the "What's the score...." taunts, particularly after: 1) They flayed us 4-0 a few weeks ago, and 2) We escaped with a 1-0 win.
  12. Welcome back Sir! In order not to fall foul of the Mods' deletion policy, my question is "Are you concerned about the attendance at Villa Park this season?" To me, I would've expected a the attendance to break the 40,000+ barrier, but we seem to be a few thousand less than that. I'd have expeceted the Man City game to be nearing a sell-out, given the new players we'd signed, but it being on TV and the cold could've kept some of us away.
  13. I think Doug Stanhope summed all of this up when he talked about other comics talking about Pope Benedict and how scary it was that he used to be a Nazi (well, Hitler youth member). Stanhope says that when you compare the Nazis (who only lasted about a dozen years) with the Catholic Church - who over the last 1,500 years have a far more prestigious track record of murder, oppression, pogroms, tyranny, exploitation, denial of atrocities etc...not to mention the institutionalised kid ****, then it would be far scarier to find out your local Nazi used to be a Pope !!
