Can't Refuse To Renew Season Ticket

Can't Refuse To Renew Season Ticket

I can't refuse to renew my season ticket but....

As a Villa fan of over ten years (I fell in love with football late and support the Villa due to my Brummie dad's love of the Claret and Blue) who lives a long way from the hallowed Turf of Villa Park I was wondering what I could do as someone concerned about the terrible state of affairs at Villa Park.

Now as I live in Hertfordshire on a low income, I can't afford to go to many matches and the dream of a season ticket is a long way off along with swimming pools and £1.20 a loaf bread!

What I realised I DO have is my subscription to the woeful 'Villa World.' I can't throw my season ticket on the pitch in disgust but as a protest against the current regime I have denied Doug my £5 a month.

This idea comes not out of the delusion that he will miss my fiver but that as part of a much bigger group I CAN make a difference. It's the drip that I hope can help wear away the apathy and idiocy at Villa.

I had a phone call just now from Aston Villa offering me a 3 month deal for 'Villa World' until September but the guy on the other end of the phone wasn't ready for the reason I gave for cancelling my account. 'I'm cancelling as a protest at the way Villa are being run and Doug Ellis' refusal to commit funds to secure the club's future.'

This was too much for the Agent on the phone who gave me a meek 'Um, ok, thanks.' and hung up!

SO, to sum up my rambling. You may not be spending hundreds of pounds at VP year after year like those noble few thousand who make the journey and effort to be there, but whatever you are spending you can stop and let the club know why.

It takes ALL of us Villa fans working together for the greater good of this glorious club to change the balance of power and bring an end to the despot reign of Doug, now lets all make ONE effort to change things...

God bless the claret and blue and Up the Villa!

In fairness to the guy who called you he's probably working for a call centre rather than the Villa so he's been given training on bigging up the Villa World. Probably doesn't know anything about Villa or football. Fair play to you anyway, every little helps!

You Villa fans should get over to Vital Man City and see how they upped the pressure on Peter Swales a few years ago. They can tell you a thing or two - if its legal and decent then just do it!

I think that every supporter who makes a stand against the current regime, be it via refusing to renew/purchase season tickets, not buying merchandise, not renewing their VillaWorld subscription, is playing his or her part. Its sad, but it has to be done.
