Villa Televised Five Times

TV heaven?!

Aston Villa have been selected for five early season games, four of them being away matches.

West Ham, Watford, Wigan and Sheffield United away games will all be shown. Fulham at home will also be televised.

West Ham (away) Sunday September 10 (4pm)

Watford (away) Saturday September 16 (5.15pm)

Fulham (home) Saturday October 21 (5.15pm)

Wigan (away) Sunday November 19 (1.30pm)

Sheffield United (away) Monday December 11 (8pm)

Great that it is mostly away games because I don't get to them, I only suffer - sorry I mean attend - home matches!

I assume the blues games will be added? Or at least one will, surely!

I'm assuming we won't be playing Blues. Unless I've been dreaming and they didn't actually get relegated back to where they belong?!

Looking at the state of your club I predict no more than 6 points from these 5 games. Not a betting man really but will have a fiver on Villa to go down this season. With Villa fans rattlling around like peas in a pod in what will surely be the emptiest ground in the Prem. Shhhhhhhh.... 40% of the ground will be empty for many matches. Will you go below 50% capacity on a cold December Saturday befdore Xmas. Douglas Ellis... how does he get away with it?

Unfortunately greyhound, there is no way of forcing him to sell his shares which also more or less give him complete control, making him unmovable as chairman also. Do you think we haven't tried? In addition, we can't force anyone else to invest and Doug is making AV PLC a less attractive investment proposition very rapidly.

Spot on Villain of The North. The regime at VP is a dictatorship and our board is made up of Ellis' 'yes men'. Any chairman with an ounce of dignity would take the numerous votes of no confidence from the shareholders as a sign to sell up and go. Only way Ellis will leave VP is in a big wooden crate, probably with tennis racket still in hand

Man City got rid of Swales remember? Not that I am suggesting you go to those lengths. What part of the North you from VOTN? Greyhound (Stockport)

It is certainly noticeable that we are now being shown against the second and third tier teams in the Prem, although it is still great to have so many games being shown and at least we have a chance of winning these ones?!
