Farewell to the Beard!

Farewell to the Beard!

Vital Villa member Benham believes the final two games of the season should be dedicated to the departing legend in the making, Olof Mellberg.

I feel for the last 2 games of the season (Wigan at home and West Ham away) he should be made captain, as for the fans support and appreciation we could wear yellow t-shirts as per his native country Sweden! Name on the back too maybe? I myself will not be shaving so I can get 'Olofed' in the beard department.

Sticking with the traditions of the last away game fancy dress, I suggest this seasons theme should be Vikings or even the great man himself!! This of course will be his final game in the famous claret and blue.

Any other suggestions?

A true class act. Loved the way he was totally honest about the Blues too (even though it did backfire a few times!)

Absolute legend! I think a few tears will be shed at the end of the season by one and all. Thank you Olly.

Great thinking. He deserves a good send-off as he has served the club very well

I totally agree. His passion and commitment have been truly awesome in these times of fickle players. I wish him the best of luck and hope in years to come he'll return to us to coach or do something in the set-up. I will be exceptionally sad to see the great Northman go. UTV

I love this idea. Could be a good excuse to wear that old yellow Villa shirt one more time. Might even get Mellberg printed on the back. I know it's long before his time but I'm not gonna buy a Sweden shirt for two matches!

I had been dreading the day that he'd officially be leaving the club. Could not have a more honest and hard working player in the team. And i will always remember when he scored against arsenal, one of my favourite moments in recent seasons.

He also scored that top quality goal against Middlesbrough this season. World class control hehe. I'll be sad to see the bearded one leave. Who will win beard of the season once he's gone *sigh*

Yellow t-shirts is a good idea, I'll join in on that. Maybe a little viking hat could help as well. Good ideas there. So long Oof

Always dreaded him being snapped up and leaving BUT the timing is probably right now. For the first time since Olly joined us we have sufficient cover that his exit won't be a disaster. If he had left 2 or 3 seasons ago we would have really been in trouble. Thanks Olly for being such a good player and servant through difficult seasons. Genuine Villa legend.
