Wish I had something better to report on the boys and their match with Newcastle.  How in the heck was that penalty try by Carew?  Kinda was the preview of what would unfold the remainder of the match.  I hope they got this out of their system now.  More of this will make for a loooooooooong season.  We are talking about Newcastle United here.  Geeeez.

Milner's move to City is final; Aston Villa Welcomes Stephen Ireland

After all of the summer rumors, James Milner is headed to Manchester City.  All I can say is "$ talks."  I personally believe that Villa let him get away too easy.  It was obvious that City was interested and we should have made them pay for him.  Oh well.  It's a business.  Ashley Young will be the man this season anyways!

Welcome to Stephen Ireland after his transfer from Manchester City.  He wants to prove to his teammates and Villa supporters that he will be an asset to the club.  I look forward to seeing what he can do for the Claret and Blue.

Who is Marc Albrighton?

Marc Albrighton has already made his mark after one regu lar league match.  Is he Villa's future?  Let's hope so.

Aston Villa: Marc Albrighton challenged to produce dazzling form for the entire season

MARC Albrighton’s Villa elders have challenged him to repeat his Premier class performance another 37 times this season.
Albrighton was buzzing after starring in the convincing 3-0 victory over West Ham in his first top-flight start.
But James Milner has kept the 20-year-old wing wonder’s feet on the ground by advising him to aim to be consistently brilliant.
“I have done it for one game of the season and have to keep my feet on the ground,” said Albrighton.
“As soon as I came off the pitch James Milner said: ‘You have set a standard there, you have to keep that going for 37 games’.
“He is not wrong. He is bang on. He has made a great career from a young age as well. He’s a great player.”

Reports Say Maradona Interested in Leading Villa?

Now this is something that will strike up some discussion.  Article in the Sun  What kind of match would this be for Villa?  A perfect transplant or a rejected organ?  My initial reaction is that Maradona represents exactly the opposite of what we expect at the Villa.  But then again - maybe this is what is needed.  Plus he certainly would draw interest from players from Argentina.

I'm guessing that the facts in this article may be true, but reality it is not.  We'll see.
