      All my kids and my grandkids (girls and boys) support Villa and I’m proud of that fact. My kids stood on the Holte with the Youth and we take our grandkids and sit in the Holte with them. There are real supporters and glory seekers – I know which I, my missus, our kids and our grandkids are!

      Tom Fox left Arsenal to join Villa; well respected and successful – he must believe there is a real future. Perhaps, one day OohAh we’ll recover from the ravages of MON (and we’re not the only club to be left in ruin by his ego) and be able to compete financially with the Sky 4, 5, 6 or whatever.

      Villa is a family and we’ll survive whatever RL can throw at us. Have Faith.

    I do think people have this perception that you have to be a huge, successful club to be classed as big, but that would be what, 15-20 clubs out of the near 1000 leagues in the world, as most would only consider the big 5 leagues as big clubs. I’d say being in the top flight of one of the biggest leagues in the world would make you big, no? Or are there only 20 big clubs out of the thousands in the world? Is there a set amount of clubs that would be big? Or is it the 98 clubs in the top flight of the big 5 leagues, plus your known Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish, etc leagues? Plus maybe your dominant Swiss, Swedish, etc clubs?

    Oohah spot on mate, should the paying fan have to take crap like we have over the years, why settle for a club that gives excuse after excuses in bad footballers and management and you still have to pay the price we do,if the club put more bums on seats with decent football and ran it as a business we have no problems, the hole of the club is riddled with bad no care people, us the fans have to take it.are we a big club? in the eyes of the Villa fans, yes, I want cup matches , I want a packed club with fans, I want the world to know The name of Aston Villa, not a club that puddles along and other clubs getting better than us. Give me my club back.

    Regarding MON….he assembled what could be said our best team for years and we were on a high…….this team lost 7-1 at Chelsea
    Brad Friedel
    Luke Young
    James M Collins
    Richard Dunne
    Stephen Warnock
    James Milner
    Steve Sidwell
    Stilian Petrov
    Ashley Young
    Gabby Agbonlahor
    John Carew

    Fast forward a few years and we are now so rubbish we loose 8-0 at Chelsea with this team…Is this team rubbish against the MON marvels though…..
    Brad Guzan
    Eric Lichaj
    Nathan Baker
    Matthew Lowton
    Chris Herd
    Ashley R Westwood
    Ciaran Clark
    Barry Bannan
    Andi Weimann
    Brett Holman
    Christian Benteke

    I know the 7-1 was a bit out of place but it hurt more than the 8-0 (just) as we were the big hope to break the big 4 domination.

    Things obviously need to change but I cannot see a march from VP to town and a demo meeting in Digbeth even happening never mind achieving anything……I am just left sitting here HOPING. I cannot attend more that once a year as football as now priced me out of it and I cannot see how people can keep going week in week out to league/cup and Europe games now a days.

    As for bigger than the scum….they were above us in the 70’s …and the way its going could it happen again……..I want all the Midlands clubs in the Prem together….

    Vaid3, its what most true fans want, the difference with 7-1and 8-0 would be down to managers nothing wrong with 7-1 it was manager errors, that was a reasonable side in my opinion. But again an heartache to us.

    Giddy this what you seen

    Double Dutch: LVG could turn to his former Netherlands skipper
    Louis van Gaal wants Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar to solve his defensive injury crisis.

    Manchester United boss Van Gaal is ready to make a cut-price January move for Vlaar to help patch up his back four. Arsenal are also watching developments closely but Van Gaal’s Dutch connection may help if Villa are forced to sell in January.

    It comes after United’s latest defensive injury blow saw Marcos Rojo ruled out for up to three months with a dislocated shoulder.

    That comes on top of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans all suffering injuries this term and United want to plug the gap.

    I found myself very respective of football clubs although there is a few I detest. I still now look at the likes of Leeds, forest, both shefields, portsmouth, wolves and more as massive clubs. Clubs that have real history in football, large and loyal fan base, stadiums, the players they have had and so much more. Football clubs with stories to tell! It genuinely angers me when someone calls Aston villa a small club and belive me I hear it regularly. It tends to come from one person in particular who happens to be a Derby fan, I still show his team the respect and tell him his own club is huge just like mine. I guess the use “big club” is used in many ways. You speak to a man united fan who lives in some country town 400 miles from machester and he will say Aston villa is a piss pot club, with crap players and shit manager. On the other hand you speak to a Bournemouth fan who stayed with his local team, he will tell you the villa is huge with some decent players and a decent manager.
    I cannot stand speaking to someone on Monday morning who watched Villa loose at the weekend and simply say we were shit! He cannot coment on why but because we don’t score or we loose we were simply shit! Some football fans just don’t feel the game like we do. As it’s been said there’s either glory hunters or true loyal fans. They just want to see big signings, 40yard gaols and trophies. How do you measure a football club is a good question. For me if you are a true fan of football you know deep down. The interesting question for me is how many of these “big clubs” like chelsea and man united have real loyal, true football loving supporters?
    I could go on and on with my views on the state of football today and the lack of respect some fans show towards mine and other clubs. Banter is one thing and it’s part of the game but these idiots tell me as if it’s a fact how big mine and other clubs are.

      Tom, I like it mate that’s how I feel as a fan, in the days of Don Rev, we feared Leeds, they was the team of the year, Nottingham Forrest, even Burnley, all fell by the way, but Villa was always a club to fight back, we cannot say today that we can do just that, not with an owner or Manager we have, I dont want us to go the same way, we are a big club ,we should have big ideas, problem is we have been hijacked by a yank that don’t understand our ways.
