Aston Villa

Good Morning.

Stone me. I went to see Alabama 3 last night. Been some fair time since I first saw them and if I left with only one thought it was that their audience these days is a demographic I want no part of. Ever been trapped in a dimly lit public toilet with flatulent geriatric swingers? I say swingers but that implies a frisson of sexual adventure. The last person to lay a hand on the bulk of this lot’s naked flesh was almost certainly a midwife.

So to the game.

After having a cursory flick through the rest of this week’s games the Interlull has down a number of sides the power of goo and I would hope that this refreshed factor would apply to us too. We could go 4th. A win would put us 3rd. But as everyone else has played we’ll stay 5th even if we botch it. But I must stress I do not anticipate that happening. Our form is only bettered by City. We are officially doing quite nicely thank you very much.

The Villa’s record is littered with their usual array of drawn games. Particularly away from home where they have drawn 4 lost 1 out of the last 5.

The friendlies don’t appear to have taken too greater a toll on us, van der Vaart has apparently responded well to the cod liver oil and shaken off his hamstring. Pathe News Boy has been lying in a floatation tank filled with deep heat listening to Winston Churchill recordings after his victory against the Amarda.

Prediction? Ade’s due a goal. He’s been off the score sheet yet contributed selflessly when he has played I’d like to see him beaming and throwing some shapes on the touchline again. Villa will pack the midfield and hope to get Barren Dent away on the break, so it’s vital we have a strategy in place that allows us to play football.

My heart says 3-0, my head says 2-0. If they score it’ll be down to us and one or more of our lot will be in line for a right telling off and no mistake. Monday night football.

    At this there was a terrible baying sound outside, and nine enormous dogs
    wearing brass-studded collars came bounding into the barn. They dashed
    straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to
    escape their snapping jaws. In a moment he was out of the door and they
    were after him. Too amazed and frightened to speak, all the animals
    crowded through the door to watch the chase. Snowball was racing across
    the long pasture that led to the road. He was running as only a pig can
    run, but the dogs were close on his heels. Suddenly he slipped and it
    seemed certain that they had him. Then he was up again, running faster
    than ever, then the dogs were gaining on him again. One of them all but
    closed his jaws on Snowball’s tail, but Snowball whisked it free just in
    time. Then he put on an extra spurt and, with a few inches to spare,
    slipped through a hole in the hedge and was seen no more.

    I’d love to see A3, love a fair proportion of their stuff, hate a bit and not sure I really undertstand the rest, but nonetheless…..

      Going to see The Alabama 3 next week. ‘Geriatric swingers in a dimly lit public toilet’ sounds good to me. I’ll provide the flatulence myself. Most excitement I’ll be getting, anyway.

      The good outweighed the bad. Support was The Jar Family who were damn decent.
