Aston Villa: Team News, Predicted Starting XI And Various Other Bits.

Morning, folks. I do love the smell of match day in the morning. Or is that napalm? Either way, it’s a wondrous, enveloping scent that fills me and my nostrils with a sense of glee. Robert Duvall is so cool… Aston Villa are in town and on face value there…

Don’t worry! Mathieu Flamini will save us!

Morning folks. Okay. That was sh*te. The English language is complex, mellifluous and wonderfully varied, but sometimes a little bit of profanity sums things up better than any carefully chosen conglomeration of words. Sh*te… Let’s get one thing out of the way first; the referee was beyond awful. He was…

Aston Villa (h): preview, news and predicted starting XI

Morning, folks. Can you smell that? That’s the sweet smell of football returning. Take a moment to inhale and savour… It feels like an eternity since it was last here. The summer may not have gone exactly as we’d hoped (understatement) and it’s a great pity I am unable to…

Sagna out, Wenger in, Vermaelen gushy and the importance of bouncing back.

Evening folks. I’d like my current relationship with Arsenal to the one I share with my cat. I love that silly cat. She’s adorable. Then she shits on the carpet and I want to bloody throttle her. Against Bayern and Blackburn, Arsenal well and truly shit on the carpet, and…

Theo, Villa, Zaha, transfers, gossip, and the best/worst of 2012.

Gervinho, Ramsey, Mertesacker, Cazorla, Szczsney, and a maddeningly unhelpful 0-0 draw.

Afternoon folks. There are moments supporting Arsenal when all you can really do is omit a disgruntled sigh, and put terrible performances down to experience. Yesterday, whilst we may have not endured swallowing the bitter pill of defeat, we witnessed a thoroughly awful showing from our beloved Gooners, and it’s…

Starting XI against QPR and team news. UEFA are morons.

FA Premiership, March 31st: QPR Vs Arsenal Saturday is here. Glorious football returns. Morning, folks! Queens Park Rangers are one of those clubs I’ve built up a hatred for very quickly. My disdain doesn’t reach the unwavering levels I reserve for those grubby, inbred neighbours of ours, but any team…

Bac back, not Jack and Chamakh’s lack of knack in attack.

Greetings, carbon-based lifeforms. As I’m sure you’ve already heard; Jack Wilshere’s recovery from injury has suffered a setback. Some media outlets are already selling the news as the worst possible scenario; he’ll miss the rest of the season, and Euro 2012. It’s only a matter of time before The Daily…
