I am going to be totally philosophical here.
Of course, I want us to win!
Of course, I want us to go up!
Of course I am hoping a week Saturday is probably the greatest day in my kids (18 and 19) lives – and of course I cannot wait for what I was hoping for on Tuesday night – 40000 Villa fans, 18 Villa players, the management team, the owner and hopefully the future King of England belting out ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ at 7pm.
But, if it doesn’t happen?
Well, yes, I will be totally gutted on the journey home.
Yes, I will be in a bad mood for about a week.
And yes, I will be on here grumbling and worrying until the World Cup starts.
But do you know what?
Win, lose or draw (well you can’t do that), I know one thing.
I and everyone I know have enjoyed this season more than any season probably since John Gregory was here – it’s been utterly brilliant. It summed it up when I went skiing in Feb, and my daughter came up to me on her own and said ‘I have never enjoyed it so much, I don’t want to miss a game.’
So, if we stay down, C’est La Vie – yes, we will probably lose John Terry, Alan Hutton and a few others, but we will get to see Callum O’Hare, Mitchell Clark and others and I know this, come August, whether it is Manchester City or Rotherham United, I will be watching the Villa with my enthusiasm back for the first time in 13 years.
So, let’s win it, but if we don’t, we should all just rejoice in the fact that after some of the darkest days in our history – we have our club back – and it is now just a matter of time.
