Of course, Mr. Abraham was also using his twitter to talk about being forced to watch Family Guy just a few minutes before, but I suppose he's got some other sort of news source rather than the telly. Excellent news for the Villa. Houllier may have been a divisive figure as Villa manager, but no player, no supporter, wanted him ailing. I wouldn't go so far as to say his illness was a turning point in the Villa season, but the rally of support it generated was heartwarming, furthering the desire of this team to keep themselves out of the scary scary relegation zone.

The questions about whether Houllier will continue can wait. Keep getting better, Gérard.
