What will be the attendance on Saturday?
Lets look at the positives:
Three home wins on the trot (including Sunderland last season).
First game at home for a month.
First game officially with Randy as the new Chairman.
Martin O'Neill as the gaffer.
Three o'clock Saturday kick off.
Not live on the box.
Villa value game which means kids tickets are from just £5 in the bottom of the North Stand (Charlton have only requested a small allocation in the bottom of the Witton Lane).
A team that consists of several home grown players, all of who are working their socks off at the moment.
No other Premier League Club for 80 miles.
I do not think there is much more the club or players could of done to ensure the largest attendance possible. With all these positives are Villa fans going to do the right thing and fill the ground? Or will the team be performing to a ground that yet again has empty seats?
My view is that for years we have wanted the club to do the right thing. Now that the club is, will fans support the new regime? I believe we are going to struggle to get 40,000. However I would love it if thousands of fans get locked out because they left it too late to get their tickets. I have said it before but I believe it is worth repeating.
If we fail to start selling out Villa Park, the owners will look to increase prices to ensure they maximise the revenue from those fans who can be bothered to turn up.
If we can put up the 'house full' signs at all games then the club will take up the already agreed option of redeveloping the ground to 52,000. This in turn will keep prices down as they encourage even more supporters to fill the extra 10,000 seats.
