I sort of remember this coming up years ago and Cabaye being touted, but also a French goalkeeper and another defender. Any ideas who they were?

I believe we were linked to the defender Adil Rami at some stage under GH. Was a good defender at the time. In more recent times he's been going out with Pamela Anderson and got sacked from Marseille for going on some reality show so might not have quite worked out long term!

Probably explains a lot about the chaos under Houllier

I know Houllier is a cock. Iíll make the argument that even as a cock he could have improved us had he stayed. But Iíll also make the case that Richard Dunne is complete and utter wanker. The trouble he refers to is I assume the stuff with Sid Cowans. So for Collins to say what he did doesnít make it better. The big picture for me is what a shit show we were for almost 10 years. Complete chaos.

Those 10 years started with Dunne and Collins behaving badly. Collins was on radio the other day and when asked about his time at Villa he recalled his friendship with Dunne and Guinness sessions they both enjoyed.

The season before they weren't far off the best centre back partnership in the division. Dunne is the last Villa player to make the EPL team of the year I believe. Both were perfectly suited to the bollock and bite defending MON preferred, (why he was allowed buy the pair of them while retaining Davies and Cuellar a clear symptom of where the root cause of our fall started).

Dunne, the summer after that infamous playoff defeat, evidently lived up to his "honey monster" moniker from his early days at Everton. Rocked up to pre season miles overweight and struggled badly to catch up. His career fizzled out really soon after after a series of injuries. Collins to be fair was a solid player for West Ham for years after. Other MON favourites (NRC, Warnock, Gabby, Carew) never did much to prove Houllier wrong.

When he was playing for us I once saw James Collins in O'neiils in Solihull with a pint of Guinness in hand. No sign of Dunn though.

On a related note the only other Villa player I've ever seen in a pub was Cuellar watching the Spain World Cup games in Walkabout on Broad Street in 2010.
