Am I raving again but was Stan Stennet who played Sid Hooper in Crossroads supposedly part of a consortium that was looking to invest in the Villa?  Max Bygraves also or is this all urban myth?

Benny's daughter was in my class at primary school so I assume he's Villa too as most of the kids at the school were.

She sadly died. She was only about 18.

I think that's right. A bit before my time really but I remember it being mentioned in that Ticket To The Moon book.

In a road accident I think. As for Paul Henry being a Villa fan I do remember this which proves Ron Saunders had a sense of humour.

Yes, it was mentioned when Benny was discussed on here before. Very sad.

Can't we just gazump Newcastle for Isak up front and get Gallagher on loan in midfield and be done with it. Both the right age and both would improve the team.

No idea but apparently other PL clubs like Newcastle, West Ham etc. are also keen so it might just be 'agent drumming up interest' type nonsense.
