David Platt, or maybe even Peter Withe.

YES Dave!!  Platt! This is exactly the sort of impact I was trying to pin down.  However didn't he cost something in the region of £250k? Which for the time was a substantial transfer fee.  This signing is incredible when you consider the price tag he was wearing on arrival, it is as if we have signed the footballing equivalent of Paddington Bear!

SGT signed Platt for £200000 which was probably a bit more than he wanted because Steve Harrison, who had been assistant manager at Villa but had left to take over at Watford (and had scouted Platt with SGT) offered £150000.

Why would McGinn want to drop down the table by signing for Man U?

For the Michelin starred restaurant in Manchester.

FIFY. They’ve got one at last.

It should be good.  It was an absolute travesty that Manchester House didn't have one when Aiden Byrne was there, completely brilliant food.  Pushed into second place by in my list of all time favourite meals by Adams, but still very good indeed.

I agree the food was very good there but I felt the service and ambience was a bit too try hard, I preferred the French myself as Rogan is very good but that probably suffered a bit from the same problem.

Whatever happened to 'real' football fans?!

Vegan sausage roll again Risso?

My lunch was made by Gregg in Luton’s finest (only) vegan establishment, Gregg himself despite living  nowhere near having been taken to the Villa a lot by a neighbour as a nipper.
