I donít think we are under represented in the media. There is Townsend, Hendrie, Dublin, Warnock, OíNeill, Smith, Sutton, Richards, Lescott, Agbonlahor, Jenas. The problem is that the ones who have any credibility/ gravitas have minimal affiliation with us. Ultimately this is because we have been largely shit for the last 25 years. Good players havenít tended to spend much time with us. What do we realistically expect?
The above have varying affection towards Villa like you say. Though Townsend, Dublin, Hendrix and Alan Smith always back us. Gabby exaggeratedly so!
You can also add Keown generally though his true loyalty was shown that even though he also shows respect about Villa in game last season he was celebrating Arsenal win at Villa Park
Other notable pundit mentions of Villa linkage in mainstream media
Crouch , Sidwell, Joe Cole, Enni Aluko, Shay Given, Darren Bent, Anita Asante and of course Paul Merson and Tim Sherwood who do sky soccer scores.

I'd largely agree with this. Without thinking or indeed caring too much about it, I'd say Chelsea are probably under represented in the media given the success they've had in the last 25 years.

MOTD2 noteworthy for Pep not getting the badge in, and Micah not guffawing.

Just listened to the Totally Football show and it was nice that in the 7/8 mins on the game they pretty much exclusively talked about Villa and did not mention the non-penalty or the non-handball.

Sounds like people doing their job right

4-0 and the two challengers for a top 5 finish, why wouldn't it be?

Man City first ? or Fulham (5-0) but no Spurs due to the BBC bias

Why do you think that a routine win for the Champions against the team everybody thought and probably still thinks is going to be relegated or a game between two mid-table clubs is more interesting than a game between two clubs who are hoping to finish in the top four?

If either of those two matches were more interesting then you'd have a point. But they weren't.

Why those should either of those two been first? Goals scored. Well both had 5 goals. City, wouldn't you have just been going "City first, typical bias". I suspect if Luton had won, they might have leapt into first place.

BTW, Fulham won 5-0 last Wednesday as well. Why weren't you complaining they weren't first over a 1-0 victory match then?

Because topish of the table trumps middish-table. Personally I'd have been tempted by Everton v West London's Third Best Team, but that's just going by scorelines. Didn't watch any of them. Maybe the Nearly Men Derby was better.

I really wouldn't worry too much about it.

I already told you, because it was 5th v 7th with the winner going 5th, and there was 5 goals in the match. Would they have been first if it was 1-0? Probably depending on the Citeh result because it was still 5th v 7th with the winner going 5th.

The question I asked to you though. Why were you not complaining Fulham should have been first on MOTD last Wednesday? Afterall they won 5-0 the same as yesterday.
