Iíve just watched that 5 times in a row. That picture of him looking at the Holte at the end, iconic.

I think the best bit of it is the "but you've spent £400m" comments from the salty blues fans who are conveniently ignoring that being over 4 seasons, it including ~£150m to rebuild the squad after we were promoted when we had about 10 senior players left on the books and us also bringing in the best part of £200m in sales.

They count every penny and know every detail about our club. They still deny they are all obsessed. Same goes for Sandwell.

I was gutted about the draw on Saturday. I really hoped we'd be on the frame for a Europa League place. If we miss out on Sunday I'm not sure how I'll feel. They looked good but then Man City weren't trying that hard either.

We will be well up for this. Ultimately I'm grateful we're on this position given the start we had.

We are well used to getting rammed in the collective Villa 'nads Drummond so it won't be *too* bad if we do miss out. I think that finishing in the top ten is entirely acceptable, given where we were recently. However, having seen the potential we have under Unai 'Gora Euskadi' Emery, it is equally acceptable to be wanting us to FTF and get into Europe. I honestly think we can do it.

Iím in a similar space, but if we fall short Iíll be gutted.

I canít actually believe that we are actually 3 points away from qualifying for Europe!!!!

Is Unai a god or a genius or a little bit of both.

Either way itís just astounding what he has achieved in a few months.

Due to the World Cup this is about the first time in my life that the Villa will be playing on my Birthday. Iím 55 and I just want one win, just one.

That Villaverse video is certainly a welcome change from watching that Al Pacino thing.

Have a look at this from @villaverse on twitter, I dont know who they are but my goodness https://twitter.com/louisdebono2/status/1661703477167308807?s=20

Louis Debono was a made man in the Gambino family who was whacked by Sammy ĎThe Bullí Gravano.

So Iím guessing heís a Cosa Nostra enthusiast like me, unless he just coincidentally has the same name. Or Sammy and DB faked the whole thing and heís still alive.

It's a shame we conceded that late equaliser to Liverpool and lost to a crap team like Wolves.

If we hadn't, those few more points would have had us in a Europa place. Still, Conference League would be great.
