Aston Villa’s season is up and running and we’re only a few days away from the loan window closing. Thankfully that’ll be the end of silly rumour stories like Scott Hogan going on loan to Sheffield United and Gary Cahill coming to Villa.
MOMS has avoided wasting your time covering such rumours and tried to get over some articles that actually have substance and some meat on the bone to make you better informed or entertained. See below.
In other news, you may have noticed MOMS has added a ‘SHOP’ option to the site’s menu bar, this currently hosts an ‘Aston Villa Shirt Shop‘ page, where you can find discount codes and tips to get your Villa shirts cheaper – whether they be new, retro or classic.
For example, one tip on new Villa kit is that as well as free world-wide delivery, Fanatics owned Kitbag will give you 10% off your order if you sign up to their email list. If you’re after a Villa shirt or more, it’s a good way to beat the queues and make a saving at the same time – check out their Villa page here
Anyway, onto the stories…
