Aston Villa have out Aston Villa’d themselves by losing in a behind closed doors friendly against their own Under 21s side.
Yes, that’s the group of younger players not deemed ready for the first-team yet.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that Alan Hutton played the second-half for the Under 21s in order to give the first-team a better chance of getting back into the game. Furthermore, Brad Guzan, Mark Bunn and Jed Steer were reportedly all allowed in goal at the same time for the Villains’ senior side.
12-year-old, Jack ‘shit hair’ Grealish has now asked for a transfer back to the Under 21s, stating: “I can’t deal with this crap anymore; I was meant to be England’s most capped player less than six months ago and now I’m having to pretend I like Ciaran Clark.”
Remi Garde refused to comment on the embarrassment but was seen searching on his phone for flights to France in the dugout – in fact, just to highlight how serious the former Lyon manager is about returning to his homeland, he was even checking out Ryanair flights.
In order to try and pick up his players’ self-esteem, Garde has organised friendlies against the local nursery, 11 cones and is currently in talks about setting up a game against an open goal.
