Genting is new shirt sponsor

Genting, international resort and leisure company, is the new shirt sponsor for Villa.  Personally, I still miss having "Acorns" across the front of the Villa shirt.  I hope that Acorns can be placed somewhere on the new kit.  Will just have to wait and see.

McLeish @ Villa

So Villans - there has been alot of "hate" surfacing because of the talks with ALex McLeish (former Birmingham CIty manager) leading to his eventual hiring.

What do California Villans have to say?   Personally, I don't support any kind of hate.  My only experience with this involves my alma mater,  the University of California at Berkeley and our hated rivals, Stanford University.  Cal hired former Stanford basketball coach Mike Montgomery as head basketball coach.  I'm still not use to it, but he does have the team generally playing well.

Also - current Cal baseball manager, David Esquer, has taken the Bears to the College World Series AND he is a former Stanford baseball player.

I say let's give McLeish a chance.

Thanks Brad!

The word is out that Brad Friedel has signed with Tottenham Hotspurs for 2-years (free transfer).  He leaves Villa with a record 275 consecutive Premiership matches.  He had a great run at the Villa and will be missed by many.  Prior to Villa he played at Blackburn and before that Liverpool.
