The number of ex-player pundits from Midlands clubs is criminally low ..... Where is the wisdom of God himself on any media?

I don't think it's something he'd want to do. As he said himself on The Tommy Tiernan Show, "I'm kind of a shy human being".

Where is / was the Tommy Tiernan show  - RTE?

It's a weird old show. If you believe the set up, he's not told who he's interviewing before they come out, and then he just wings it. Leads to some really interesting chats right enough.

In fairness, apart from Liverpool, I think Villa must nearly have the most ex players as pundits on a few media outlets. As follows:

Dubin, Jenas, Joe Cole, Keown, Saunders, Gabby, Lescott, Keane, Townsend, Ginola, Warnock, Houghton, Merson, Micah, Schmeichel, Hendrie, Yorke and probably a few others I can't remember.

Dublin loves Villa. Saunders and Gabby are dire regardless of love. Townsend has liking for us . Merson defo and Hendrie too

The rest have little association or want of one to Villa. They have time for us. Although only the bellend Micah bad mouths the club

He wasn't like that on the podcast / MOTD team zoom call they seem to do after the weekend.

Wilson been dismissive of us all season. Not sure how five wins and two losses at St James' and Anfield is inconsistent, but whatever. Fuck him. Villa are coming.

One of us. One of us. One of us.

Wilson is fine, and generally pretty balanced.

You know well where he's from. As an aside, I've yet to hear a BBC news reporter try to pronounce 'Laois'. I'm guessing it would be some bastardisation of 'Laos'.

It is.

Now, what about the name "Ger"? Mr Regan of this parish allegedly cut short his time in the UK due to the consistent bastardisation of it. Imagine being growled at every time someone called you.

But that's not even an Irish name, it's just a shortened English(?) name.

Are you forgetting Villa legend Jenas?

I forget he played for us, then I remember he never really played for anyone.

His best years were definitely his early ones. He had 21 England caps by the age of 26. Then the injuries started. Spurs loaned us out a crock there, more fool us for taking it up...
