Ok, so some of us moan, some of us cheer. Some us moan and cheer, others boo, some boo hoo hoo, but one thing is for sure, the Villa recently have done their bit. They turned round a woeful start and have trotted out point after point with some very notable scalps including the great win against Manchester United on Saturday at Old Trafford and the not to be underestimated victory away to Sunderland at the Stadium Light on Tuesday night.


Well, as said, they’ve done their bit. They got a kick up the arse and responded. We now surely need to do the same?

General Krulak has just said in the forum:

‘Now we have Stoke! They play a very tough game…and will be a challenge. We need to continue to play our game and keep the pressure on. Right now we have about 33K coming to the game…and Stoke is bringing their full complement. We need Fans at this game…we need them screaming and yelling.’

33 000 coming? Get out of it, the place deserves 40 000 or more. Christmas is no excuse, send your wives to do the present shopping, no point having a dog and barking yourself is it?! (I might live to regret that comment!)

The costs are as below, there are plenty of cheaper tickets but for once surely the claret and blue army can turn up en masse and shout the lads to another victory, one that could really put some daylight between us and some of the chasing pack?

Seriously, crowded shops or Villa Park to cheer on the lads. Which is the best option? You know it makes sense.

Randy Lerner has put his money where his mouth is, now we’ve surely got to do the same?

Come down, grab a mate, bring a kid (not just anyone’s kid by they way, best be your own) get there and shout your heads off for 90 mins. Spread this to everyone you can, get them down, drag them down, be there or get stuck in the queues at the Bullring and argue with the missus because you never listen when she talks to you and you tell the truth when she asks if her bum looks big in this. Your call, only one choice surely?
