Will The Credit Crunch Affect Your Villa Plans?

Will The Credit Crunch Affect Your Villa Plans?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by young_jonah, who was the best Villa captain during the Premiership years?

I'm glad to say the best man won! Andy Townsend got 41%. I have a huge amount of respect and admiration for Townsend and don't think we've ever really replaced his industry and leadership.

Olof Mellberg was next with 20% closely followed by Kevin Richardson with 18%. Looks like the beard beat the moustache by a whisker! WAHEY!!!

Gareth Southgate got 10% and current (?!!) skipper Gareth Barry just 8%.

That left Magic Merse with 3%.

Our latest poll asks if the credit crunch will hit your Villa plans this season and was suggested by Skeggy.

Personal circumstances mean I'll be in the opposite situation - it'll be the first time for four years that I'll be able to get a season ticket and afford to travel back to Brum for the majority of games.

I'm sure thje results of that poll would be very different if Gareth Barry had signed a new contract instead of revealing a desire to leave. As for the credit crunch, I work within several different markets and most areas aren't feeling it at all. i think it's been blown out of proportion. Things will calm down dramatically by the end of Autumn and we can all start racking up our cards again. SWEET

Best Villa captain throughout the premiership years, Gaz the Baz, despite his betrayal.
