Vital Villa member and esteemed mod (!) col8's brother had a little trouble at the Liverpool game, when Gerrard scored that goal from a non free kick! One of the people in the Prawn Sandwich boxes behind him knocked on the window and showed two fingers and a rude gesture fist to the Villa supporters in the Lower North stand.
My brother who travels down from Worksop week in week out attends the games with his Son Pat and Niece Lydia, during the melee which ensued someone threw a bottle of coke at the window, not having the cap on it she got covered in coke and was a little shocked at the reaction of the people in their vicinity. A steward appeared in the box and despite my brother pointing to the culprit the steward just kept pointing at my brother with his finger indicating he should turn around and watch the game. The more he did this the more the people around us were getting really agitated. Things settled down and Villa of course lost the game.
Never mind next game up was Fulham, come the glorious day Lydia did not want to go to the game, she was shaken by the fracas 2 weeks earlier.
My brother complained to the club about the actions (lack of) of the stewards and the lower Witton, he contacted General Charles Krulak through the Internet and phoned the club to register his complaint. He was invited to attend the Chelsea game as a guest of Randy Lerner and the General.
After arriving at the ground by 2 O'clock and receiving a tour of the ground, they dined in the director’s suite and watched the match from the director’s box. Randy Lerner and the General spent time with them during their visit. After the game he told me that when Villa scored RL was leaping out of his seat with joy. Randys enthusiasm for the club was genuine, so many people had doubts about their true feelings for the club since taking over, my brother is 100% sure they are 100% Aston Villa. The result on the day and the fact that the ground was 'Rocking and Rolling” made their day complete they had a brilliant day were treated like royalty throughout their visit.
