The paving stones. Could these be re-introduced and would it be possible for the faded ones to be restored?

The club answered Firstly, it is not possible for us to restore any faded Pavers. When the letters fade, it is because the stone is being worn away from foot traffic and weather. Once the lettering has faded, there is nothing we can do. Clearly, we are not in a position to replace the stones, and it is unfortunate that the type of product introduced years ago has led to disappointment for many. In any future build, we will give consideration to a different solution. If we can find one, we will give those whose messages are lost the opportunity to replace their wording at minimal cost.

Apparently there is a book of remembrance you can sign in lieu of these pavers. Not ideal but at least it is something. And usually at the end of the season the club allows fans to nominate holteenders in the sky to be remembered on the big screens at the last match.

Our epic 4-2 win over the Owls at Hillsborough. As I said just after the game, That game was ridiculous!

So what did we learn? Apart from some fans had forgotten what it was like, that feeling of complete away day euphoria with Villa snatching a late winner.

1) We only need to play 45 minutes!

Slightly tongue in cheek because if you look at large chunks of that match, Villa really were on the back foot and the performance at times was, to put it kindly, stretched. But the team spirit and the never-say-die attitude is what is getting us through and if we carry on like that, just 45 mins per game or not, we have to be there or there abouts don`t we?

This league isn`t a pretty league and to be fair to the injury ravaged Sheffield Wednesday side, their youth and fringe players put up a hell of a good battle
