    2018 Holiday Plans

    From what I remember, it's in the north of the island, quieter and the beaches are very good quality. Very popular with the scandanavians too, back in the day anyway.

    Back in the day, the club shop (or the programme kiosk in the old holte end) used to stock programmes from villa's recent away games and I used to buy quite a few back copies. Not 100% sure the villa village (or whatever it is called now) sell such things but ya never know

    Media and punditry

    It's been a long held bugbear of mine that the likes of micky quinn, savage, gerrard, clinton morrison, barton and many other ex players jump on the media gravy train (yes I know why THEY do it but why tv moguls think they are worthy is beyond me). It's a kick in the teeth for the many who have studied hard at sports journalism who get queue jumped by ex players who struggle to string a coherent sentence together. Then again I've always thought this punditry analysis of games goes OTT for the sake of filling air time.

    Ron Saunders in care

    Eammon Deacy (RIP) was a regular 12th man. Reading that team list took me back to my youth on the Holte (left side) when, if we'd lost then my whole weekend was ruined.....and I still had my homework to do on Sunday (Sorry...a bit off topic there)

    The Film Thread

    The trailers for the Christopher Robin might just be me but does pooh bear look just a little bit creepy, compared to his cartoon/book image ?

    Jack Grealish

    If he stays at villa and proceeds to play like a brat who's thrown his toys out of the pram then we'll know how much of a villa man he is and that he wanted the move all the time. Crocodile tears after the hull game ? We'll see...

    Things you often Wonder

    Seen in WA on my trip out there in Jan. The locals couldn't see what the fuss was about. I do like that they refer to gingers as "rangas" as in orangutan though !

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Yeah I had that happen to me once. Merrily and serenely chugging up and down the back garden with my flymo and then all of a sudden a cloud of wasps erupted from the part of the lawn I'd just mown over.... I was like road runner, meep meeping back in to the house, shouting all manner of swears
