Where Should Away Fans Sit At Villa?

Our latest poll, suggested by Lee Lindsay, asks where Villa should seat the away fans.

For years they've been given great views at the back of the goal North Stand end, but recently, especially with the teams who can't be bothered to bring decent away numbers like Blackburn, Middlesbrough and Fulham, they've been put in the Witton Lane lower and therefore we've had fans behind the goal at both ends.

So Lee was wondering where you thought the fans should go?

I'd say North Stand Upper if not for the fact they could then throw things at the Villa fans below, so maybe we stick them in the corner of the Witton upper and lower and hopefully one of these fine days we'll see the Witton and North Stand re-developed (when Villa fans start to return in numbers obviously) and the away fans can be given a special corner up in the gods out of our way!

I can find no part, regarding away fans seating, that I would disagree with. Stick them out the way.
still skeggy
yup, corner of the Witton upper would get my vote.
The Fear
Definitely Car Park IMO

I'd be quite happy sitting on my arse!

Very definitely as far removed from sight as necessary, that simply makes absolute sense. Witton Lane Upper whenever possible, overspilling in to Witton Lane Lower when numbers dictate. Right in the corner, upper and lower.

From a policing point of view they need to be together, near the coach park and the train station. The police will have a say in this. So we're confined to the North stand or R block where the Boro fans were yesterday. Valid point about throwing things down so would prefer them to have R block and perhaps a bit more to the side of that. That would of course take them to the half way line and dislodge Villa season ticket holders who like the half way line view. If we put them above R block they get good seats, perhaps charge them more. We get ripped off enough at away grounds. I like it with fans behind both goals. I'm sure it gives the players a buzz.

They should stay locked in the coach park. I've noticed that quite a few don't even bother to wipe their feet when they enter our hallowed ground. A disgrace!

Holte End. lol Only Joking just put them out of the way

Hope you get the same respect when you lot are away.

We do, have you been to Newcastle?

Corner of the Witton lane stand gets my vote. Great to have Villa fans behind both goals. Notice how Boateng, knowing the 'score,' made Villa kick towards the Holte end first half Saturday?
jonah
Witton stand and give us bacl goal ends.
irish villa
Witton stand, but put them up near the holte so we can drown them out. Middlesborough were too far away (from the holte) to be heard and would like to hear what they are singing so we can respond and get a bit of banter going. Or maybe they just didnt sing anything?

On seats.
