Villans Not Missing Small Heath

Villans Not Missing Small Heath

Shock results to our last poll, suggested by Col 8, who asked if you missed the local derby v Small Heath?

68% said no, Birmingham City are where they belong!

29% said they did miss the derbies. Villa's closest rivals this season are Sheffield United and I must admit I miss the spice of a local derby to get us all fired up, I used to enjoy the Leicester games in years gone by, shame they always beat us though!

That left just 3% saying they weren't bothered..... face, bovvered, bovvered, face, I AIN'T BOVVERRED.

Our latest poll asks if we should enter the Inter Toto Cup if we don't qualify through the league.

I know what you mean but it was nice hammering the final nail's in their relegation coffin last season.

Beating Small Heath on and off the pitch was always enough for deadly. We need to set our sights higher, a lot higher.

I dont miss playing playing small heath but do feel sad for the state of midlands football. Those of us old enough to remember wining the league in '81 can remember what it was like to play all those local derbies and end up top of the pile, that was when not just the blues were in the top division but west Brom, Wolves, Leicester, Notts Forrest, stoke and coventry were there as well. Playing Sheffield and Portsmouth doesn't really count.

i honsetly want to see them back up, along with the baggies and wolves. without these teams our big games are either against teams that would beat us (man u, the arsenal, chelsea) or teams next to us in the table who are only rivals due to the logistics of trhe prem. playing the blues gives us smething to look forward to and raises the stakes abit. also, in there last stint they got more points so we owe them a couple of stuffings. one last point. how on earth can we relegate them again if there not in the same division? come on blues, get promoted so we can send you back down to where you belong !!!

I see ****in blue noses on the Villa site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wibble, wibble, snark, a better image for this piece would have been the wonder goal from Cahill surely, or super Kevs of course. yes I miss regularly thrashing the opposition, and the match used to be quite interesting too, but seriously it would be nice to have all the old teams back up where they belong, just so we can rule the midlands properly.

the best 2 teams in brum are villa and villa reserves. as far as i care i wouldnt miss em if they dropped thru the divisions and were replaced by tamworth. they are all porn selling paedophiles anyway. my mate was locked in a room with two rabid pit bulls and blose fan. he had a gun with just 2 bullets. so he shot the blose fan twice. that about sums up our feelins for em.

UTV- its not cool calling someone a paedophile. i'm a villa fan, but some of my mates support the blues. i'm sure that is the same for many of the people who read this site. the porn selling bit is fact, so thats acceptable, but i suggest if you want to label people a paedophile that you put 'allagedly' after, just like in have i got news for you. i stops you getting sued.
