Villa's Uefa Cup Games Switched

For some reason UEFA have agreed to the request to switch the home and away legs for the UEFA Cup game between Villa and FH Hafnarfjardar.

Villa were drawn to play at home first and that really should have been that, otherwise what is the point of a random draw?

The first leg is now away on August 14 and will be played at Laugardalsvöllur Stadium in Reykjavík.

The second leg is on August 28.

Well, thats positive, as we won't have to deal with fatigue from travelling at the City game.

Hang on, I've got that backwards haven't I? Hmm, not sure I see the point now.

Is this an example of MOn throwing his weight around. Grrrrrr! Beat that Rafa.
Mister Mick
I dont understand whay this is a benefit to us or whay it was changed?!

There must be some underlying reason to all this but i just don't see it!
bellywipes
will ask in the Generals thread, there will be a good reason, just no one has mentioned what it is!!
The Fear
MON likes the away leg to be played first, I read that somewhere
Jongekki
Maybe MON didn't want to travel to Iceland 3 days before the huge home game with liverpool
avfchris
Apparently they are trying to maximise revenue from their home game and are concerned that if we stuff them at VP it will significantly reduce the crowd at the game in Iceland. Unlike the PL where most of a clubs income is sourced from media and not actually from attendances, In Iceland a majority of income is from mtchday revenue.

Brings back very pleasant memories of the tie against Valur of Iceland back in '82. a 6-0 win over the two legs, on the road that very, very memorable, never to be forgotten, sooper-dooper night in Rotterdam. A lucky omen I suggest.

Wont be easy over there, well Valur certainly wasn't, although winning the first leg 4-0 at Villa Park had set us up nicely.
glensider
have to correct you glensider it was 5-0 at vp and 7-0 on aggregate more of the same please
sdcman
FH Hafnarfjardar are thinking that they will get a bigger croud to the 1st leg as if we beat them and beat them well in the 1st leg at vp then people will not go the the 2nd leg but people will go to the 1st leg anyway. And it gives us the advantage of having the away leg 1st. Thats Clever from both FH Hafnarfjardar and MON.
