She played for them for 10 years. If Gazbaz was a coach at Albion and said something good about Villa would that be ok. What about JT if he was pleased that Chelsea won tonight.

Your wish......

It's a picture of Mason Mount as a wee nibs I think in a Chelsea kit aged 6 or 7 and simply saying congratulations.

Mason Mount looks exactly the same as a 6 year old as he does now.

Apparently she may be off to go and work for the FA. Good riddance because she did FA for our reputation.

Indeed.  She's been nothing short of a PR disaster every time she's opened the Twitter app on her phone.  Let the FA have that problem.

She can go and be some other employer’s problem, for sure.

From the Times this morning:

Aston Villa Sporting Director Eni Aluko is understood to be joining new Los Angeles-based franchise Angel City.

Aluko, 34, has been at Aston Villa for 16 months, overseeing a number of new signings as the team transformed to a professional outfit in their first season in the Women’s Super League, securing survival in the division last weekend, three points clear of relegated Bristol City.

Sources have suggested to The Times that her next move will be to Angel City, a club that is viewed as one of the most exciting developments in the women’s game. A number of high-profile owners have backed the club including film stars Natalie Portman and Eva Longoria as well as former USA star Mia Hamm. The move would be an attractive prospect with Aluko having a key influence in shaping the club, using her vast experience in the women’s game.

The club are expected to begin competing in the NWSL, America’s professional top flight, at the start of the 2022 season, which would give Aluko time to have an influence on the setup.

Aluko was one of England’s most successful ever players, with 102 England caps. Her club career also saw her experience life in the America, where she played for a number of clubs from 2009-2012.

It is likely she will leave Aston Villa following a week in which both of their head coaches have departed. Marcus Bignot, who joined the club on a temporary basis to steer the club to survival in January, left on Monday. Bignot and Aluko have a close relationship from her playing days.

Bignot replaced Gemma Davies as manager, who had initially secured promotion to the WSL last summer. Davies remained in her role as head coach but was also informed she would be leaving the club on Monday.

Even better, nothing to do with English football at all.

I know she's pretty detestable, but from purely from a point of view of getting the women's team established, I guess you can say she and her people have done the job.  I'm just glad the club seem to think they can get a better management team in place now to move things forward.  I really can see with investment them making very quick strides forward quite quickly.

She did do her job and you could argue she did it well.  However it is lucky she didn't leave a trail of destruction with our name in the mud while doing so.

If I can offer some balance to the comments, Eniola Aluko was the driving force behind the "Students of the Game" partnership with Aston University which will benefit our women's team members even after their careers have ended.
Also,  please enlighten me, what business of ours is her political views and in what way is it relevant to her role within the club?
