    John Terry and Thierry Henry collabing as super best friends forever!! One great attacker? One great defender? What could go wrong?!

    It would be amazing if that happened.

    I've heard a rumour that Henry is being lined up for the job at Monaco, which is curious.

    Honestly, that convinced me of the merit of Brendan Rogers more than Brendan ever did by himself.

    I get the feeling Henry is going to get mentioned for any manager's job that comes about. I think he'd fit in well at Villa, the only possible drawback is that it may feel difficult for him to go against Arsenal should they get promoted. He's always said he would never 'play' for another English team, so not sure if that would relate to managing too. The other side of it is if he would get the time; you'd think he would, especially with Terry there. Is it just me or should the roles be reversed, Terry the main man and Henry as the assistant coach? Terry is more of a leader than Henry in my book...

    Henry's already turned us down if you believe the rumour, so there's now chat about turning to Dean Smith (with the possibility of Terry returning as an assistant).

    Have to say, it would make sense. Started his career there, so he has roots in Monaco.

    Hope so. It's a popular appointment with the fans anyway.

    In other Villa news, RIP to the inventor of the bicycle kick and our one-time chairman, Doug Ellis.

    Gone quiet in here with the Premier League on a break. Anyone see the England game in the empty stadium? That was pretty weird.

    Also, funny bit of news came when the guy doing the livetweeting of the Stourbridge game had a typo so it read something like "25 minutes - Smith shoots wife from 30 yards".

    Naturally football fans had a bit of fun with that one.

    Yeah saw the game out of the corner of my eye (playing Fifa at the time). Only real talking point for me was the Rashford miss. The sky is the limit for him, but he needs to start putting away the easy chances. Too many 1 on 1s he's fluffed his lines. There's still plenty of time to rectify that.

    Spain game tonight. I'm expecting a loss, just hope it's with guts.

    Well well well... Now that is a turn up for the books. Haven't seen highlights yet, but heard we picked them off on the counter. Sterling getting two should silence his critics a touch. I think he is a little overrated overall, but some of the stick he gets in the press is quite harsh at times. I don't usually buy into the whole "agenda" theory that the press have for certain people, but Sterling is one that makes me wonder at times.

    Sterling does take way more than his fair share of stick and it does make me raise my eyebrows at times.

    As for whether he's overrated... I tend to think the reverse might be true. There's some obvious flaws in his game because even I'm actually a better finisher than he is, usually. But I think people get so hung up on his flaws that there's a whole swathe of people out there who don't rate him at all and don't seem to realise he's probably the most important attacker. His off-the-ball work and his movement seem, whenever I've watched England, to be where most of the opportunities for other players come from.

    I mean, if he could finish like a young Robbie Fowler he'd be world class. As it is, he's a good international player. But to hear some people out there talk you'd think it was an Illuminati plot that he hasn't been dropped already!
