Sunderland vs. Aston Villa: Lineups

As you've likely heard, Darren Bent didn't travel to the Stadium of Light. We've got a whole 'nother post on that.

Before the lineups were even announced, Villa supporters knew that Chris Herd was out of the match, thanks to his twitter. He better keep an eye out, though -- supporters suggest that he's off on the town with his girlfriend tonight, and we all know the fans do not look kindly on shopping while you should be suffering with your side. Even if it's just in front of the telly.

Sigh. Of course Herd doesn't want to watch the Villa. Most of us don't, save for a few moments per match, anyway. But we're hanging in there and hoping there's something worth seeing. And waving hello to King Carlos.
