Byline: Brian Reade

NEWS that Doug Ellis is ready to consider a pounds 20million bid for his majority shareholding in Aston Villa has apparently led to an acute shortage of claret and blue sandals throughout the West Midlands.

Villa fans, having watched newsreels from Iraq, have decided that when this decades-old reign comes to an end they will storm the Doug Ellis Stand and the Doug Ellis boardroom, haul down every Doug Ellis statue and deliriously attack all images with the appropriate footwear.

The big question remains though. Will they uncover the mass grave where 'Deadly' buried the careers of so many managers?
