Don’t worry, Vital Villa is still here! I know I’ve broken some Villa fans hearts in recent days not posting my wisdom in articles. I can but apologise!
However, I’ve not been idling away my time looking at our upcoming fixtures, stressing about the last two games or hiding away from the prospect of the potential lottery of the play-offs.
So, where have I been?
I’ve been putting the final touches to a total re-brand of Vital Villa, both on the front page and in the Lovely new forums*
I should perhaps credit others with the hard work, but as you know, it if isn’t about me, I’m not interested. So if you like our new look, praise me. If you don’t, I’ll send any complaints to the people who really did the work!
It is still evolving, but very quickly now. We hope that all can see the new formats and agree, we have a lovely, modern, fresh look.
And the forum, well. It is just a joy to use.

Looks like Jack and Uncle Albert approve!
Feels like a breath of fresh air around here, soon the whole network will have this lovely new set up.
Onward and upward for Vital Football, still going strong after all these years. Thanks for your custom on Vital Villa, I look forward to enjoying your company for many more years. Mike Field and myself have been doing this for around 17 years now.
I think I need to get out more!
