    Never had a problem with Wolves personally, my best mate and his family have been season ticket holders for as long as ive known them. Ive always looked at them as a local rival but obviously nowhere near the levels of Blues or WBA. I've been a few Wolves game over the years when there has been a spare ticket or something. Admittedly things are starting to heat up between both sets of fans especially on social media. I think as said above its because they know if we get it right we will probably move ahead of them, but i admire the way they have gone about their business under Nuno. Its only a matter of time before they lose him to a bigger team, i hear Chelsea have considered him. That will be a massive test for them as lets not forget they got it massively wrong in the first season under Zenga and the berk. I can only see our rivalry getting a little more tastier of we both stay in Premier league for a while. This is what happened between WBA and Villa when they were in the prem together for a period of time. I know people say they dont care about WBA but imo they should be as they are as close to us as Small Heath are!
  2. Mind they need every penny they can get at the moment !!!

    Feel sorry for all those who missed out, genuinely do. Many genuine fans won't be there alongside 36k or so of us unfortunately! My uncle one of them who didnt assign all his tickets this year and missed out on 2 release dates! Like it was said on here, we could probably sell the whole of Wembley out on a day like this. We all have different situations but we all love Villa just as much its just unfortunate there are not enough tickets for all! I don't get down as much as I used to, due to having kids mainly. But under MON years I didn't miss a game home and away for 5 years and could get a ticket for any game I wanted home or away. Good luck to you still trying, i hope something pops up for you all! Honestly keep checking the website like a madman things will go up. Last year 200 tickets got released randomly with no news/warning! #UTV

    Got my ticket yesterday thank God so panic over for me now! Keep checking throughout week those who are still trying as there will be returns going up. Last year i wasn't going to go but changed my mind mid week before game. Logged on and there was 1 seat in villa end which I had and that was the Wednesday night too when it was just reference number needed!

    Starting to panic now, can get mine saturday but nervous as f**k !!!!!!! Looks like looooads gone already !
  6. Thanks for the info guys, worked out really well. Managed to get most signatures, unfortunately apart from Mings, Jack and McGinn who are the ones he desperately wanted to see! Going to try again next week I think when they are back in the 11. He had a great day and several times said it was the best day ever so im a very very happy dad tonight! UTV !
  7. Thanks, i think il wait after the game for them to come out as he has football training in the morning so will be a bit of a rush to get there! Il take one of his shirts down with us and grab him a program for them to sign etc! Can't wait, he is so excited. I wish I had waited until sunday morning to tell him but I couldn't help it!
  8. Hi all Im finally taking my lad to his first game on Sunday, cant wait im so excited for him! Its one of the days us football mom and dads look forward to the most taking them for the first time. This season he has really got into football and Villa big time after months of will he, wont he! He is in love with Jack and Mcginn, cant stop talking about them lol Im looking to try and make it and extra special day for him by maybe get some autographs or something for him to remember and have something to hold on to for memories. I know people wait at the car park to the players car park after the games and am looking to do this myself. Does anybody have any idea of what kind of times before or after the game the players arrive or leave? Or anybody done this recently? I know there is no exact science to it but if somebody could give me a rough estimate that would be helpful ! Also whats the sketch with training days etc? I know they have just introduced the 25 person rule last week but how do you find out when they are training, or is it literally pot luck? Thanks in advance !
  9. Was having a right laugh at a nose at my son's football. He was going on about the whole Lichfield 4x4 driving nonsense that they seem to cling onto as some kind of victory for them... I turned to him and said "where do you live then?"..bearing in mind we were in Sutton... "Sutton" he says.. "Oh right ok that's not in the city centre or strictly brum is it? I thought you were all from there?" I say. "I'm originally from Solihull though... "Well that's not Brum either is it?... he really didn't know what to say before trying to argue why it was brum and not as it actually it is a town in Warwickshire. He is one of those who just can't even mention Villa without trying to get a dig in... he was very quiet after that.. They really are stupid... .
  10. Yeah i guessed i was wrong right i get it now! So its up or bye bye Jack then really... tbf we have all known this was probably the most likely scenario. I read a figure of 29 million failure somewhere.. guessing we will get 30 mil + for him and that will be that. And to be fair it would work in all parties favour. God i hope we get up now lol Certainly ramps the pressure up a notch going into these last 8 games!
  11. Kieran Maguire was on WM tonight answering callers questions about FFP. Forgive me if i have this wrong but an interesting point he made that i hadnt heard before was that for the first 2 seasons down losses are counted at premier league rate i.e 35 million a season. Our third year would then be counted at championship rate of 13mil. Overall 73 million in losses allowed for us. That would make sense as to why the club seem to think they are ok. He also said that we were 2.5 million above the line upto last accounts so it sounds like our losses for this season need to show no more than 15.5 million. I could have got this wrong though guys but if i have understood that right then ot would explain Purslows comments previously etc
  12. Lets not laugh at them lot down the road too much..... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6840541/Villa-Derby-Sheffield-Wednesday-clubs-face-sanctions.html
  13. Yeah good shout about the Lord Clifden. Il have a look at the other 2 also. Thanks !
  14. Going town Saturday with my pal for a catch up and to watch the Wolves game (hes a big dingle). Havent watched a game in town for a while so was wondering if anybody can give me some suggestions as where we could go. Id like to avoid broad street if possible but obviously there are a few places there to watch.
