'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Challenge To Blues Hypocrite

The Birmingham Mail fly the Blues colours as per usual.

They have blown up the comments made by our very own General Charles Krulak.

An article by Ken Montgomery, a man only too happy to totally ignore Villa fans and all the protests against Ellis over the years and ignored our (VFC and Shareholder Association) and a reporter of theirs repeated requests to meet us to discuss why he wouldn't allow his sports section to represent the views of all parties as opposed to the Ellis only lickspittle coverage and spin. This is a paper who didn't report on a march of over 3000 fans because it would no doubt have upset their mate Doug Ellis and the Birmingham Mail would never have wanted to comment negatively on him. So interesting as soon as something 'anti' Blues happens they are on their high horses?

The General thought the ticket prices were 55 when they are in fact a still totally rip off price of 45. This is meant to be a working mans game, it is no wonder some Blues fans have been priced out of attending and then they get the final insult of Sullivan moaning about them from his multi-million pound mansion.

The General said of the price, 'If that's so then great. Let them bring it down another 10 and it will be even better.'

It would be better, especially after David Gold had recently spurted that all clubs should reduce their prices by 20%. What a hypocrite!

Gold, quoted in the Mail said: 'The greed in football means we preclude the people who made the game great - the fans.'

Following these comments a fan on Villa Talk asked the General to remind Gold of that comment to which GK said: 'Not sure what Mr Gold is after other than publicity. When you get down in the mud and wrestle with a pig, the pig loves it - and you get muddy. I think I will just let him continue to talk.'

The General has defended his comments saying 'I stand by what I said. The pig quote is an old Yankee expression. The pig is the situation not the person and was not aimed at David Gold. To get into a public debate over something like this is not the thing to do because nobody wins. I didn't want to get into an argument about ticket prices and cause tension in the build up to our big match in November.'

So come on Gold, put your money where your considerable mouth is. 45 - 20% = 36. Man of your word or all hot air?

PBAVFC
Love the Generals comment, but should have been a pig with a strap-on.

a small team from small heath trying to play big boys games.......its a case of them not really wanting to part with their cash (which they could do without even missing any) so they have to charge what they do......its no wonder they dont sell out.....what we should do is charge them the same when they come to a proper stadium but that doesnt hurt the porn kings it only hurts the ones who have made a bad choice in who they follow......deluded pretenders from the temple of doom....keep the faith

The Gold boys and the poison dwarf himself all live in a world of their own, where their grandeurs of self-importance are mere figments of their own warped imaginations. They love to hear themselves talk, but should never be taken seriously. Little men, attempting to run a very little football club.

Speaking about the noses like this will make the General a legend. Warms the heart!!!!!!
Gazvilla
Wheres that quote from the General about Villa been the Lead dog and all the others following get to sniff their wind..... Boycott the game his the sty management where it hurts in the pocket.
col8
trouble is boycotting the game also hits the team, must admit it was my first though Col8 but the team do need the fans there!
The Fear
That too was my intial response col8, to boycott the game, but in the end I realised that we do need our supporters there in numbers, plus I'd be denying myself the pleasure of being on hand when we turn them over on their own patch again. All Hail The General!
