Happy birthday, Gabby Agbonlahor

Today is the birthday of Aston Villa's top Premier League goalscorer of all time, Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Better late than never, we wanted to wish Gabby Agbonlahor a happy birthday. He turned 28 today, and actually got a cake, which is more than Yaya Touré got from Manchester City!

Agbonlahor posted the picture of his cake on his Instagram account earlier today, with the caption "The little things that matter." Apparently footballers like birthday cake more than any other group of people on the planet.

Luckily Gabby has always been happy at Aston Villa. He came to the club at the age of eight in 1994, and still seems content at the club despite having been asked to play in a variety of roles. He's seen some good and bad at Villa, and came through with some very important goals to help the club escape relegation the past couple of seasons. His 68 Premier League goals are the most by a Villan all time.

Here's a video from Squawka's Instagram of Ashley Young messing with Gabby.
