Aston Villa will have to wait until Wednesday afternoon to find out if Gerard Houllier will be succeeding Martin O’Neill as manager of the Premier League club. After a summer that combined the tumultuous with the uneventful, the Frenchman’s appointment would be a welcome shot in the arm at Villa Park.

Kevin Hughes Kevin Hughes spent the best part of ten years working and writing for the football magazine Match; once (sort of) inspiring David Beckham to copy his shaved-hair look, getting lost in Paris after the 1998 France v Croatia World Cup semi-final and other such nonsense. As Deputy Editor, he launched and established Sport, the London-based free weekly magazine, before moving on to become a consumer magazine publisher, a position he holds today. Introduced to Villa by his father and grandfather, he attended his first ever match at Villa Park as a seven-year-old in 1982… and has suffered almost constant disappointment since.
