Well, to be honest, I’m not even sure Tom Hanks has reiterated his love for Aston Villa.
I’d suggest the Yahoo article is just a re-hash of the previous stuff that he mentioned, in that he just likes the sound of the name.
Which is fair enough, I suppose, as it is unlike anything else in the game, something else I like about us as a club.
No United, City or Town for us; that’s far too common and a club such as ours deserves better anyway, in my opinion.
So Tom sort of promises to come to a game, but probably won’t.
He’d be pretty disappointed if he did, as the stadium apart, the area is pretty depressing (apologies to people who live there, but I could say the same about Erdington, where I live).
Anyway, the previous is just space filling.
The way I see it is every time we get linked to Tom Hanks, it has to be a good thing. He has a fan base that dwarfs the Villa and indeed, most footy clubs, simple as.
So it’s good advertising for us.
Why he hasn’t been offered a free, all expenses paid VIP trip to watch a game is beyond me, but what do I know?
That’d be great advertising.
Whatever, things are warming up with the Yids game approaching.
Will Benteke start?
Is he even in the frame?
Last I read is, he’s sort of fit.
If so, he has to start, in my opinion. He’s just too good to sit on the bench.
If he’s 50-50, just leave him out and get him fully sorted.
Personally I reckon he’s ok if the Belgian squad’s celebration video is anything to go by.
Can we win this?
My head says no, but my heart says yes.
I didn’t see Yid’s game against West Ham, but I did see West Ham-Hull and WH aint no big deal.
Hence if they can beat Spuds, we should at least be able to get a draw at home.
And there’s the problem.
We’re at home, where we look hopeless.
