  1. I’m on row F and that’s included, I think (could be wrong though) it goes to row H
  2. You have to put your ticket/season card in a small slot, I don’t think a phone would be able to slide in
  3. Maybe now the embargo has been lifted they will announce him, possibly tomorrow?
  4. Wolves fans seem to think they are going to pay the 18m release clause in Adama Traore’s contract, Dont we have a 20% sell on?
  5. Mine has arrived today too, but not my lads even though I purchased both at the same time, if it doesn't come tomorrow I'll pop up and get his paper ticket to save hassle on Saturday
  6. My work colleague had an email from them last week, I didn't get one, : Thank you for your support and purchasing a 2017/18 season ticket. Your packs will be posted out next week, so we wanted to give you a bit of information on what to expect! The Pack Your pack will contain your season card, a letter, a leaflet and an exclusive pin badge. If you haven't received your pack by Friday 4th August please call the Ticket Office on 0333 323 1874. The Card Your season card will look a bit different this year. You'll have all the usual information about your seat, but your Client Reference is now called a Fan ID. Use this in exactly the same way as you would've used your Client Reference. The card will also look like a payment card. This is part of the new technology we have invested in which will mean you can top up cash onto your card which you can then use at any of the contactless payment terminals around Villa Park. Don't worry - it is not automatically linked to your bank account, you have full control over activating the card and the amount you upload. More information will be given in your pack. The Pride As a season ticket holder you will become the first members of The Pride - our new fan membership. The Pride membership will be growing over the season, working with you to get feedback and continuously improve the scheme. The main benefit of being a member is access to our new loyalty scheme - Pride Rewards. Pride Rewards This is our new points-based loyalty programme, replacing Villa Cash at the start of August.Pride Rewards will aim to reward you for how you interact with the Club... by attending games, spending cash that you've topped up on your season card, or engaging with us on social media. In essence you can 'Roar for more' - the more you do, the more points you'll earn. Those points can then be redeemed against a range of special rewards... experiences, competitions and memorabilia. As a season ticket holder, you'll be rewarded with a special start-up balance depending on the number of years you've consecutively held your season ticket! There will be more information about Pride Rewards in your pack and we'll contact you again early in August once the scheme is live. Thank you again for your support and becoming #PartOfThePride

  11. For some reason SSN have a reporter live outside BMH, he said he expects the deal to be finalised within days and the reason for the delay was 1. The 'fit and proper' tests were previously done before the sale of a club and now they are done after, and 2. The test checks that board members are also cleared
  12. More like Gabs dusting off the old treadmill
  13. If you go on the reconig website it does say rui kang at the bottom

  17. http://www.avfc.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10265~5580392,00.html Farewell message from Randy Lerner Goodbye to all that… Announcement of agreement to sell Aston Villa to Tony Xia In spite of my personal affection for reading history I have come to trust the future more than the past. And when I refer to the 'past,' I do so lightly and lightheartedly. I refer to recent accounts - mostly in the press regarding the sale of the Club, that are so many miles from accuracy or truth that I can only assume that they too were written by people whose tongues were firmly embedded in their respective cheeks. It is football after all. As I've said, it was my hope that ownership and custodianship of the Club would have been transferred some years ago when I knew that personal and professional matters made it impossible for me to contribute the time I did in my first five years with the Club. Time and immersion that is crucial to any formula for success. Still, fates are fickle in football so that we could claw back to safety last season, end up at Wembley at a Cup Final sitting amongst old friends!, and then spend the 2015/16 campaign at Bannockburn! As I expect this to be my last message to supporters through the Villa website I thought it worth reiterating that my approach from the beginning, consistent with my longstanding affection for The Trinity, was in three parts: Villa Park infrastructure, Bodymoor Heath infrastructure and the Villa squad. I have a sneaking suspicion that my best chance of any tolerable memories in this regard will lie with the father and son of this trinity…! In the end, however, so many wonderful young players came through Villa during my time and it is to them and supporters alike whom I am indebted. Also, of course, I wish - without mentioning names, to say thank you to countless people with whom I worked at Villa Park and BMH who have touched me personally and from whom I have learned so much. Finally, being conscious of the popular and dark pastime of wondering aloud how much was spent, or lost, I should like to think that I 'left behind' value which will hopefully endure and benefit this beloved old Club. In being sadly more than tone deaf, I'll not weakly risk trying to sound any positive notes. But what I will say is that if spending to restore and preserve the wonderful Jacobean Holte Hotel at the southern tip of the Ground, or researching and adding the Holte End mosaic as a nostalgic nod to that wonderful Leitch Stand of our past, add to the tally of personal losses then I can offer no counter argument other than to say I would do the same all over! It is here that the agreement I wish to announce with Tony Xia ties into my short narrative: Tony has built his career around infrastructure. He is certainly a hugely successful businessman but importantly for me he is passionate about architecture, site design and planning. His commitment to invest in the squad, and leadership at Bodymoor Heath was expressed early on but as we visited together, and had some unrushed time to discuss his plans, Tony's excitement to develop Villa Park shone through. I remain convinced that this is a crucial part of the Club's future as it provides a critical, long-term second source of revenue and therefore sustainability for the Club from which squad-funding can potentially come. It is with that that I want to say thank you, and to wish Tony every success going forward.
