We all make mistakes. Enough water under the bridge by now. Was a great player for us for a long time.
We should not forget that he was a trailblazer in the use of the ample arse technique which SJM has now perfected.

Did Gazza Bazza use his big arse effectively? I just remember he had one, not that he had a McGinniesta-like trick with it.

Class act; one of my top-team picks for the time I have spent watching the Mighty Villa.

That was a really good side! Great second goal. Even Curtis Davies looked completely at home in defence.

That was a nice memory.  I remember watching in a pub on a dodgy feed. The connection went down just before Gabby got the 2nd.  Lots of "I think we've scored again" to be heard in different quarters of the pub.   A great day.  Looking at it again and the penalty..how far off the line is the keeper before the kick and he clearly moves befoore the kick too?

One of my favorite villa players, so consistent and a big influence on the club.

Here's a link to a really good interview with him about his time at villa.


I always hoped he would come back to play for us and judging by the interview he was open to it. He says he always asked his agent if there was any interest from us but didn't get any indication from villa that he was wanted.

Hopefully he'll be back in some capacity in the future.
