It was a bit of a slow news day on the Aston Villa front, but there are a few really enjoyable reads to pass on to you today. And some total jackassery regarding Christian Benteke. Also, a bit of self promotion in case you missed a post that ran on this site yesterday.
I'm thinking of just writing an article once the window closes and Benteke is still around. It'll probably just be pictures of people laughing. Maybe some gifs, too.
We've been tossing around the idea of writing a piece on Fabian Delph's apparent resurgance for ages. But it seems that My Old Man Said beat us to the punch with a really fun read. I'm increasingly finding this blog to be one of my go-to reads, by the way. Well worth the bookmark.
I'll go ahead and say what I'm thinking here: Godzan's interview seems a little bit canned. But whatever, it's cool to see him trying to get Americans to support Villa. As he points out, with all the USMNT players Villa have had, it shouldn't be too tough.
Here's a look at the way Daniel Sturridge tore apart the back line to score the game-winner on Saturday. It hurts to look at, but take heart in the fact that no one on our team is named ass-pass.
BUT IF THEY GET HIM HOW WILL THEY BID ON CHRISTIAN BENTEKE?!?!
Finally, in case you missed it, this piece by UTVilla yesterday was an excellent, insightful look at what Aston Villa have been doing tactically in their first three matches. If you didn't get to read it yesterday, make time for it today.

And don't forget to join us in the comments for today's open thread! Remember, anything is game. I'll start you off with a question: if you weren't a Villa fan (inconceivable!) what team would you support?
