  1. Up at the crack of dawn. Daughter and Grandson will be round later. Merry Christmas VT. Genuinely feel as if I know so many of you and in this the most isolating of years I thank each and everyone of you for being my comedy, my education and my encouragement. Thanks for being the company I have needed in 2020.

  3. What a terrible Christmas. I was supposed to be going to my Mum and Dad's after picking my little girl up at 1pm. Have been feeling unwell for a few days (asthmatic and have been short of breath when I move about), so decided that I wasn't going to risk anything and got a covid test.......knowing that there were 4 outcomes (positive, negative, inconclusive or no response in time) and 3 of them would see me on my own for the big day. Anyhow, 3 days later (supposed to get the result next day) and no result so I've been at home on my own and watched my little one open her presents via Whatsapp. They did pop me around some dinner, but I am gutted. She is 7 next month and this is one of the last years it will be so special and exciting for her. Heartbroken and that is without the heap of trouble I am going to be in if I have covid. Edit: Sorry, this isn’t supposed to be a post chasing sympathy. It is as it is! Hope you are all having a great day and an even better one tomorrow.

  4. Was in TESCO yesterday and the little old lady in front of me was about to pay her bill; it was £18.90. She suddenly says to the cashier, "I cant find my purse, I think it has been stolen". So, in the spirit of Christmas I said, " Come on .let me help" Oh thank" you she says. And within 15 minutes I'd got all her stuff back on the shelves.

  6. Merry Xmas one and all, I think we've mostly managed to keep each other sane in this most difficult of years and for that we should all virtually pat each other on the back for a job well done I'm sitting here, freezing my nuts off because the daughter likes to wake up in a cold house. I've washed up everything from last night, tidied the Living Room and I'm having a coffeee listening to Stoner Jazz in the man cave, whilst I wait for the women of the house to arise from their slumbers We shall open our presents in a few hours time after the dinner prep has been done, we shall start drinking around then, eat and then play games where my daughter and I will get uber competitive. At some point we shall collapse into Boxing Day stuffed and drunk

  11. Hey all, I just wanted to quickly wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I know its been a shithouse year all over the world but this forum has been a great place to escape, socialise, distract, laugh, complain etc. Thanks everyone for helping get me through 2020. Take care everyone and UTV!

  13. Went to Lightopia at Heaton Park tonight, which was really beautiful and well managed too. Came home, ate pizza, drank beer, just moved the presents from the office to under the tree, took some soot from the fire and put it on the floor next to the plate of carrots and mince pies and am now drinking Santa's 200th Anniversary Johnnie Walker because, well, the fat **** will be taking credit for all the stuff I've paid for... It's been a year of highs and the lowest lows but as always VT has been my anchor, just as it has been for the last, what, 17 years? Love you lot. Merry Christmas x

  14. So not long now before we leave behind probably the worst year the world has seen since WW2. What does 2021 hold for us? What are your hopes, dreams and musings about what 2021 might bring. It seems likely to start off even worse than 2020 ends but hopefully the vaccines can start to make a quick improvement if they can roll them out fast enough. Personally I just want to see people more, go to a pub. My son turned 18 in November and all he has wanted to do is buy me a beer. That is something I look forward to. I hope the economy will bounce back quickly. So many people must be in real hardship, lost jobs peoples dreams of starting their own business lying in ruins. I hope those people can start again. And I want to go to Villa Park and watch Jack Grealish playing like a footballing god in real life, supported by the rest of our fantastic team. I want to sing songs on The Holte. I want to go to an away ground and take the piss out of their stadium and town. I genuinely do want to get into the office and see my colleagues. I want to hug my parents. I hope Brexit works out though I think that might be a dragging factor on our general prosperity at a time we really don't need it. I am worried about what actions the Government will take to pay for Coronavirus, those things will become clearer in the next few months.

  17. Full show yesterday with the 5 year old. Spent today playing a brand new Nintendo Switch and building a Lego Hogwart’s. He’s happy, I’m happy. Life could be worse. Off to the snowy mountains tomorrow. And I should add: It’s really, really great to actually be looking forward to Boxing Day football again. I genuinely can’t wait. Merry xmas, VT.

  18. Fantastic start to the day, we are entertaining her mum and dad and the son of the brother-in-law who is in their bubble. In laws arrived half an hour ago, all good, but where is Drippy 15 minutes ago I see him walking up the drive with a hamper, here’s me thinking, good lad, that we packed nicely with booze or goodies. Is it ****, He’s brought his new cat round for Christmas Day who he has not had for more than three or four days. The moment it enters the house it’s had a massive row with my cat and **** off out the back and legged it. Mrs, mother in law and drippy now out on the streets trying to find said cat i give up. Word of advice to young Villans, do you not get involved with dog head families regardless of how fit their daughter may be

  19. I'm going to rebuild my life, basically. Hope to find work and decent housing in an area not populated with a lot of MAGAs. I looked at a house recently but the house across the street was flying a Confederate flag with a raised middle finger graphic. You get that element in Maine. Following Villa recently has honestly been the only fun thing I've been doing. So I hope to repay the Villa by flying to England to see them again in person. Or maybe fly to Barcelona to watch us play there! I hope Trump goes to prison or just dies of a heart attack. Trumpism needs to be eradicated and it needs to start on January 20. I hope next summer is fairly normal again. Not sure i want to jump back into the bar business though. Let's hope 2021 is better. This has been a brutal year.

  20. I swear, I had no idea what I was toying with. I feel bad about this. You know that guy, the guy in a crowded pub, who pinches a girl on the ass, starts an all in brawl, then walks away scott free? Everybody hates that guy, but that is what I have become. I can't apologize enough for this. I underestimated Villatalk's ability to go from 0 to mental from a standing start. A nice, well intentioned thread, and it has become madness. Sorry.

  30. I have my kid for Christmas Day this year, so not the usual day that I’m used to. Will still eat too much, a drop of wine at Christmas dinner, watch something festive. Watched a bit of the gruffalo and then got annoyed on realising that Corden’s strive for ubiquity remains as unrelenting as ever. But it’s lovely (and chaotic as ever) having the little one here, watching her open the presents in record time. A couple of drinks for me when she’s asleep tonight. Then back home to her mum’s on Boxing Day. Then I get to indulge with a bit more reckless abandon for the next couple of days. I’m out of likes, so that must mean you lot have entertained me. Merry Christmas, you loveable scoundrels

  38. I dont like the guy in all honesty. The way he left the way he mocked villa fans at United. And i am disgusted that he has abandoned his son who is really unwell. But for villa he was great one of our greats. As a man i dont like him at all

  39. See any one else would maybe say his press conferences are boring. Maybe his lack of controversy or outspoken views can be boring But no, you go straight to saying the man is boring! Do you know him? Have you been for a pint with him? Ridiculous post yet again. He comes across as anything but a boring man!! What is boring are posts such as this one!

  41. What you don't seem to grasp is that this is a sensitive subject, with a significant cultural divide, and on Christmas day, you've risked starting a race war. I'm with @sidcow, this is an absolute disgrace. Not really. I think you missed the joke.

  44. Lambert destroyed my enjoyment of not just being a villa fan, but football in general. For the first time I stopped watching other games. I'd lost any interest i had in the sport. I'll always resent him for that.
