Many Villa fans are starting to wonder if Martin O’Neill is actually the managerial messiah so many people have claimed him to be. O’Neill had a very poor summer, losing some of his best players and then failing miserably to replace them.
Be honest, you’d rather Murray won Wimbles than Psycho’s lads won in Sweden tonight. It’s OK, I won’t tell anyone… What would you prefer: England win U21 Euros or Andy Murray wins Wimbledon?(answers)
So it’s England versus our old pals Germany in the final of a major international football tournament. It really should be the only thing that anyone is talking about today.
