YOU GUYS! GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS!
IT'S TIME FOR FOOTBALL!! WE HAVEN'T HAD FOOTBALL IN... four days.
Huh. Preseason friendlies seem even less exciting than usual when you've had a World Cup to watch all summer.
Regardless, it's the first friendly of the summer for Aston Villa, and there really isn't too much to take away from this. We'll probably get to see Philippe Senderos, Kieran Richardson, and Joe Cole play for Villa for the first time. And we will DEFINITELY get to see the new Villa away kit for the first time.
We've got lineups here, but just for Aston Villa. None of us know any of the Mansfield players, so why would we bother with that? If you do know the players and are sad that I have included them, add them in the comments, where you should join us anyways.
