A BIT OF GOOD NEWS...
Long suffering Aston Vila fans have had a bad time of it in the last couple of seasons. They have seen their team lose their last six Premier League matches to sit bottom of the table and last night`s 2-1 defeat to Southampton saw Villa exit the Capital One Cup, aka the League Cup. The weekend`s sacking of manager Tim Sherwood was inevitable and the fans must be left wondering who in their right mind would come in, accept the poisoned chalice and attempt to save the club from what seems like certain relegation.
But at least there`s a bit of good news for them as Harry Redknapp is reported as `ruling himself out` of a return to management at Villa Park. An interesting announcement from `arry, f`sure, pretty much on a par with Tony Blair ruling himself out of becoming Pope, but I`m sure the Villa fans have been encouraged by Redknapp`s refusal to be considered for the manager role by club owner Randy Lerner.
Don`t know why, but each time I hear the name Randy Lerner it conjurers up visions of teenage adolescents making their tremulous way into the local brothel. I`ll get me coat.
