  1. I went to this. Everyone steaming on a Monday night with a 745 kickoff. This was the worst game I ever went to. For all of these reasons. I vowed to never go to a derby again, and never have. Not after my 70 year old dad almost got bottled
  2. You know what, I always thought I hated this top. Then after too many beers I bought it from Scoredraw. I absolutely love it.
  3. For the first time since Martin O'Neill left us, we're actually back.
  4. I just don't understand the attraction of supporting a football team over a hundred miles away from where you call home, where you have nothing in common in terms of community with the rest of the fans. What's the point? I'm named "islingtonclaret" because I lived in Islington in London for ten years. I was born in the QE, and I'm from here. My club never changed, because I go to a match and I'm back home with my people. I get jokes about Mr Egg and who is going to Shebabs later. I like laughing with YamYams about orange chips and the fact they can't speak properly. It's even funnier now: I live there. Manchester United? You crack some joke about Salford being the real city and I have no idea what you're talking about.
  5. That part is enough to make me scream.
  6. Sign Kryten. He may have been a mechanoid, but he's turned into a damn fine player, regardless of the merciless trolling VT gave him
  7. Hi Villatalk, I don't post or read here that often anymore, since careers and houses and weddings have taken over my life. I'm not even Islingtonclaret anymore, I'm technically Halesowenclaret now. But HELLYEA
  8. Chuckle Bro no 1. Great. Welcome back, have a pint.
  9. Sadly this is very much true, I just don't really want to admit it. I'm in an office of 50 people in Digbeth, and the entire office support either Liverpool, Man United or Arsenal. I'm the only Villa fan, and get lampooned for it. In my own city.
  10. If you want to stay relevant, cash is important, and the modern young football fan does not care for any of these things. We've traditionally been part of the leading pack for the large part since our inception. Two more seasons down here and we're joining the "used to be famous, but nobody outside of it's own fans knows, cares or wants to know" club.
  11. We might as well take the cash. As long as we don't name it as inappropriately as the idiots out East.
  12. Ah. My favourite match of the year. Time to go hide under a rug.
  13. Seven years ago I joined this forum and we were discussing breaking the top four of England and Manchester City were nobodies. I didn't think I'd be reading discussions about us going out of business.
  14. that must be embarrassing to lose to a half arsed team that used to be famous, Ian Holloway.
  15. Nonbinary slam poet. Let's see how that's working out for you in ten years time.
  16. Brother just bought three tickets from Lisbon to Birmingham return. At 4pm on Saturday.
  17. See also: trousers that look like they're about to literally fall down. Men walking around looking like children that need their parents to dress them still is the 2017 look
  18. I would hazard a guess that it is very unlikely to be anyone on here.
  19. Two girls thought I was trying to take their place. They banged on about being season ticket holders and that I was a simple tourist having the nerve to tell them move. They spent the first 20 mins of the game talking about me and generally swearing and called me a disgusting prick with a nerve. I was trying to find my seat and wanted help.
  20. A great first match to welcome me back to Brum. Hutton had a bit of a shocker, but Davis and Hourihane were excellent. As an aside, I was sitting in L4 Holte and when I was trying to find my seat I encountered two of the most disgusting, vile people I have ever met at VP. Since 1992 I have never met or spoken to any other Villa fan like it.
  21. Am now reguluarly frequenting the Red Lion on Warstone Lane JQ. Seeming as I live next door and they have Daniel Batham & Son on tap, I think I've lucked out
