Why I became a Villa Fan
I would like to know what where the reasons why you guys began supporting Aston Villa. I don't mean just the fact that you live in Birmingham, but were there some twist of fate that led you following the club.
Here is my story.
When I was a kid and first began following football, I saw a diminutive footballer play for a team called Liverpool, his name was Dean Saunders and I thought he was a good player and I used to model my playing style to his. Oddly enough I could not really say that I was a fan of Liverpool though. All my friends were massive Liverpool fans but with my limited knowledge on the game back then made me feel like a relative outsider in football discussions.
In the times I did watch Saunders play another player caught my eye, one Mr Ray Houghton. Then in the 90's these 2 players along with Steve Staunton moved to Aston Villa, and so did I. I did not know a single thing about Villa all I knew was that I had put myself on a transfer list with these players to Villa, for the first time, I was able to support my very own club and I spent hours of my days looking around for any information on Aston Villa, I collected news paper articles and even made a scrap book. I watch us beat Arsenal in a leg League cup play off, I saw us beat Man U 3-1 in the League cup final.
I saw Savo Miss a lot of IT score an absolute howitzer when we beat Leeds 3-0 in another League cup final. I became Villa through and through, I saw us rise and fall and hopefully we will rise to even greater heights in the future, but one thing I know for sure is that I you where to cut me - I would bleed Claret and Blue. I GOT Villa in my Veins.
