Vital Villa Member The Ultimate Fan

Vital Villa member Randy.Stand has taken a phone call today that has him jumping for joy!

The Villa youngster entered a competition in the News of the World recently where he had to write 300 words on why he is the ultimate fan. Today he got a call from Duncan Riddle at Villa informing him he has won and get this for a prize:

At the Everton match on Sunday 23 September, he'll have breakfast and a briefing with General Charles Krulak in the Corner Flag restaurant.
Next up he has an interview with Jack Woodward in the tunnel. Ok, we can move swiftly on from that part!
He will then enjoy dinner with the CEO Richard Fitzgerald and owner Randy Lerner, plus other directors.
Then he'll see the game from the press box with Jack Woodward and Tony Morley doing commentary. (Just in throwing distance of me Randy, so please save me some prawns!)
Then after the game he'll meet the players and Martin O'Neill.

Now that is what I call a prize!

Randy.Stand explained: 'I read it in the NOTW a few weeks back and went onto the website and every premiership club has a prize for it and you had to explain in no more than 300 words why you are the ultimate villa fan. I never in the world thought I would win and I can't believe I have!! Come on!

Well done R.S, we'll expect a full run down of your day naturally!

randy.stand
Fantastic, well done chap, obviously will be a fantastic day. So come on then randy, how about a transcript of the winning entry, so we can all do our best to be a mega fan just like you : )
steff_the_villan

son_of_cher
I haven't got it unfortuanetly. should have saved it somewhere but didn't! I didn't think it was very good and can't believe i won!
randy.stand
I can't actually remember what i said. Obviosuly i put im a s.t holder and go 2 away games etc but can't remember most of it!
randy.stand

avfc48
Cheers avfc48
randy.stand
lol, randy.stand, don't say that, you'll have me writing a second article. Vital Villan winner in sham admits 'I didn't think it was very good' shame!!!!!!!
The Fear
lol yes! Doesn't matter about the quality though Fear, i won fair and bloody square! lol
randy.stand
This is so amazing--it'll be the day of a lifetime! Congratulations!
villabrownie

randy.stand

Its All Over FC
Well done RS , have a great day, remember to ask as many questions as possible and report back on Vital !!!!
fatloser
Cant wait for the story to hit the front page, have you told the Birmingham Evening mail yet.... lol
col8
Well done and congratulations Randystand
notthedougellisstand
Can you take a mate, I always thought you were a sound bloke. Can I call you Randy for short?
Gazvilla
lol cheers lads. You can call me randy yeah lol! Not sure if i can take anyone yet, he said the premier league would put it all in writing!
randy.stand
the only thing i don't want to do is sit by that prat Woodward with his dirty beard! Have a shave son, i'm going to say that on VillaWorld when he asks me what did i think of the 1st half!
randy.stand
Well done son...wonderfull prize, make the most of it, have a cracking day.
astonmilan
Thanks astonmilan!!!
randy.stand
Well done. Try and nobble Arteta in the tunnel.
Dannygav
Yeah injure their good players before the game, that is the plan! haha
randy.stand
Well done randy.stand - a dream prize no doubt! Those are the sort of competitions you never think you'll win when you enter - I take it the NOTW will run your 300 word expose?
Canuck_Villan
Well done,what do you get 4 2nd could it be double what the winner got. Could they not have got a better prize like going to cadbury world, now that would be fantastic.
SHOE HAMMER
doubt it if the NOTW will publish it. All teams in premiership were looking for one fan, if they published one they would have to publish all 20!
randy.stand
ShoeHammer - easy to pick holes, but i'm not sure you could even spell 300 words could you??
YatesyVillain
lol good one yatesyVillain
randy.stand
YatesyVillain i will spell this slowly as i know you cant read quickly. T h r e e h u n d r e d w o r d s. I must admit spelling has always let me down, but not as often as villa must let you down. Cant wait till we get to villa park and bring all your fans banging down to earth. You never know you might even be able to sell out your stadium, but i doubt it.
SHOE HAMMER
you are a idiot shoe hammer. You did well at Villa Park last season didn't you, upson was crap and got injured in the 18th minute lol, and you lost 1-0 to a team who had won 1 in the last 15 or a number of games around that. Idiot!
randy.stand
Its the Great Barr upbringing. It has to be. It makes men of quality out of us all. Well done randy!!
glensider
Barr-ite boys be best in Brum!! randy.stand knows it, I know it. No surprise to me that randy came out on top. Great Barr boys dont know the meaning of being also-rans.
glensider
Glen is right. Us Barr-ite's always come out on top in every battle! Where in Great Barr did you live Glensider, what road was it and where was it by?
randy.stand
Good job Fella, make sure you get a memory from the day..
OneloveVilla
Well played Simon! Any chance you could tell Randy we need a right back? lol
DeanoVilla
i'll tell Randy and MON we need a right back deano!
randy.stand
Give Mr Ellis a big wet kiss from me.
