Tesco Bags and Running: West Bromwich Albion v. Villa, 30 April 2011

Darren Bent saved our asses.  With Stoke grinding the game down to nubbins by clutching, grabbing and taking f o r e v e r to take any and all set pieces, Bent snatched a chance from nowhere and headed a Kyle Walker cross past Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic from between two Stoke defenders to level the match.  Villa held out for the draw, and will go into the weekend against a team that actually wants to play football.

Since appointing Roy Hodgson to the manager's post in February, the Baggies went from certain relegation candidates to relative safety.  They come into the match in 14th position, just a point and a place behind Villa.  Last weekend, they snatched a last-minute draw from Tottenham on an absolute peach from young striker Simon Cox.  Both teams should 

In a bit of good news, Villa gaffer Gerard Houllier will be leaving the hospital to begin a spell of bed rest at home as he continues to recover from his health scare.  The Capital Villans wish a continued speedy recovery to the manager.

Your humble Capital Villans leadership will be travelling to Philadelphia during the match to participate in Sunday's Broad Street Run.  However, the match will be on live at Fado, on 7th NW between H and I, at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday.  Enjoy and UTV!
