Aston Villa News Review: John Carew, James Collins And Sir Alex Ferguson

Again, Aston Villa news being overshadowed by the Wayne Rooneys of the world, but I think I like it better this way. Clubs getting splashed around the papers usually means something is amiss.

Everyone's Talking About This John Carew Quote: Boss, "I'll do a job for you." While I'm not sure that Carew can actually find first team football, the article mentions again the extended training the team is taking on, and the fact that Villa are focusing on tactics. Oh, how times have changed.

Keep It Up, Boys: James Collins firmly believes Villa are now playing the best football since he arrived at the club, and with a lack of international breaks, wants that form to continue into December. Oh, and Gabby's still expected to be out for the weekend.

Why Bother With Minnows Like Zilina?: We've all thought it, whether we're watching Champions League tournaments or Euro 2012. What's the point of pitting tiny teams against massive clubs like Chelsea? When matches are a foregone conclusion, it doesn't seem like there's a reason to even play. Britski Belasi makes a case the other way.

Sir Alex Ferguson Is Not Always Right: As news about Wayne Rooney's desire to leave Old Trafford continues to dominate the headlines, When Saturday Comes takes a look at some decisions Fergie has made that might actually not have been the best.
