Nice one lads UTV

Loving the Laid back approach to giving us your thoughts on Aston Villa, keeping me entertained while waxing my cross country ski s. Merry Christmas guys keep up the good work. Oh yeah congratulations to Ashley on the birth of Penny, best job in the world being a father, believe me I have 3 and they are all Villa mad! Which ain’t easy living in Finland but they know it’s in the blood.
A mug would be a great surprise for our kitchen, my very old villa mug has no print any more. UTV
