Let me be the first to laugh off suggestion that good old Emile will be causing problems at St. Andrews this Sunday.

He was born in Leicester and that is pretty much where his long lists of unimportant achievements stop. Scoring just 40 goals in 6 whole years with Leicester and then even less in 4 years at Liverpool, before moving to the Midlands where he scored a pathetic 14 in two years, seeing them relegated in only his second year.

I point to the so-called Wigan form that got him back in the England fold which wasn’t impressive at all, 15 goals in 3 years is very much laughable. He’s a big lad that scores in patches of form, and these patches are few and far between.

Having watched Emile for those two years and seeing him Wednesday he’s going to cause Villa to have much more of a headache than Frank or Johnson, Something tells me their attention will be placed elsewhere come kick off.
