Please tell me that this is a joke?
There seems to be growing talk on the Twittersphere that some fans might be looking at a pitch invasion tomorrow night if Aston Villa win the semi-final of the play-offs.
Yup. Worth repeating. A pitch invasion for winning a two-legged game v Middlesbrough!
Fair enough, it gets us to Wembley, but this is the play-offs, we’ve won nothing, yet. I’d not even go on the pitch IF we won the play-off final. It’s still coming 3rd isn’t it? It’s massive, it is needed and I hope and pray we win and get promoted, so don’t get me wrong. But come on. Really?
I detested the pitch invasion a few years back when we won the right to play at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final. Again, we’d won nothing – and ultimately didn’t win anything.

Why oh why would people risk a banning order for this? The pitch is not our place anyway in my ever so humble, unless invited on – I’ve been lucky enough to have been invited on a few times – I’d never walk on our hallowed turf.
We need to respect we are Aston Villa, not some tinpot small time club that would celebrate winning a raffle prize.
Yes, if we win, we will be going to Wembley, but only via a £ootball manufactured tournament to generate more of that filthy lucre for the authorities. So no, I’ll not be singing Que Sera or doing a pitch invasion. I support a massive club and I will support them accordingly..! I will, however, be banging the boardings throughout the game!
you can do whatever you want my friend, edging towards celebrating mediocrity is usually the reserve of tiny clubs. If you want a banning order, go for it, enjoy!

I’m afraid we have a whole generation of supporters suggesting this because 1) they have never seen us win anything and 2) they are idiots!!
