Aston Villa Reserves, Fitness, and The Messiah: Thursday Links

Aston Villa Reserves Play United Reserves: If you're tired of the first team, give some attention to our reserves, who can normally be relied upon to win a thing or two. Nathan Delfouneso and company take on the littles from United, including the crazy-hyped Bebe

Gérard Houllier Considering Robert Duverne: When Houllier officially takes the reins on Monday, he may not have an assistant, but it seems fairly likely he'll have a fitness coach.
