    At least it’s better than the other defender I’ve seen him mention. Scott Dann News and Views.

    I think I can’t afford to go to the Chelsea match tomorrow as I only have enough cash to go out on Thursday for a long standing night out and then survive the rest of the month by the skin of my teeth. I’m sorely sorely tempted though. £50 a ticket plus £25 or so for a train ticket kills it for me though. I’m also being optimistic and thinking we’ll lose by more than one goal, but that’s based on my predictions always being wrong. I was with an Arsenal supporter today, albeit a realistic one who isn’t an arsehole. He wasn’t very happy and reckons we shouldn’t have had two penalties. I explained to him what a Gabby was and how it’s one of our very best weapons. Can’t wait to see him in action tomorrow and for Wiemann to start banging in goals (remember ManU last season?). Delph is a goal waiting to happen, Luna might not be the perfect defender but what a run and pass from Wiemann on Saturday. So many positives, so much better than the dirge McLeish and to a certain extent Houllier presented us with, miles better than this time last season. Who cares if Chelsea do beat us, I’m sure we’re going to give it all we’ve got tomorrow. UTV!

    I think one thing that may work in our favour tomorrow is that Mourinho will almost certainly change his team around. With 3 games in a week and Man U up next, he will prob rest certain player. This could really work in our favour…although then again, the players that may come in (Mata, Lukaku, etc) arent bad either! The advantage we have is that our first XI is starting to gel nicely together.

    Shawcross won’t happen, stoke will look for at least 12 mill for him and he will be lookin for top wages so forget about it, mcmanaman is a little scumbag who isn’t great anyway and McCarthy is still at wigan because they are lookin for about 15 mill for him and obviously not many teams can pay that except the top teams who probably already hav better players in midfield, shawcross and McCarthy would b great signings but cost too much, not just for villa but for 80% of prem teams. Darren bent is a good goalscorer nothin more, he is lazy but he has always had the same style of play he wasn’t just lazy cause he was with us and we paid him too much, give him proper wingers and he will score as he did for us, really don’t understand what some fans ar upset about, bent did what he was bought for until we sold all the players that made him good, goin for a 2-2 draw 2moro, same score i went for the arse haha hopefully goes the same way!

    I agree for both players. McCarthy would provide great cover for the back 4 and Shawcross would compliment Okore very nicely. Problem is, we need 20-25m to buy them! Wages wouldnt be out of our budget, but the price tags are.

    I still think we will bring in one more player before september, but i doubt it will be either of these two….

    shawcross and McCarthy would be great signings, im surprised they are still at wigan along with mcmanaman, id have though at least Martinez would’ve been in for them two, he took kone but none of the other 3,(the other being Maloney) maybe there’s a reason? aside from Whelan thinking he’s selling Messi and getting stupid with the money, all summer ive not heard one rumor regarding the wigan trio, surprising really.

    I could see stoke selling shawcross if a decent bid came in, they desperately need strikers and money to buy said strikers or they are going down this season, just don’t know how they are gonna score enough goals to win games, shawcross, the defence and bergovic can only do so much.
    I also think shawcross would fit the current villa ethic.

          In general sky will leave you alone providing you are still a sky subscriber. as soon as a pub cancels a sky package they are lined up for a visit from sky package(unknowingly) to check if they are broadcasting foreign channels.

            Foreign channels can be broadcast as long as the logo is covered. In our local they have software that covers it

      If you have a quick look at Jose’s record at home for all his clubs it’s really quite astonshing

      Unbeaten home league record
      Between 23 February 2002 and 2 April 2011, Mourinho went 150 home league matches unbeaten: 38 (W36–D2) with Porto, 60 (W46–D14) with Chelsea, 38 (W29–D9) with Internazionale and 14 (W14–D0) with Real Madrid. The run was broken by Sporting de Gijón on 2 April 2011, when they defeated Real Madrid 1–0 at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in La Liga. After the match, Mourinho entered Gijón’s dressing room and congratulated them.[140] His only prior home league defeat had come when Porto lost 3–2 to Beira-Mar on 23 February 2002

    The last time the self-styled “Special One” experienced a league defeat with a side that he coached was on 23 February, 2002, when Porto were beaten 3-2 by Beira Mar.

    A bit of perspective on this, he has been managing top teams most his career and money as never been object – hardly a Clough, Shankley or Busby and built it up from scratch.
