Heskey Says Villa Fans Are Fantastic

Heskey Says Villa Fans Are Fantastic

My word, from booooo (Villa fans name dragged through the mud - AGAIN) to hurrah in one easy step.

Emile Heskey has praised the Villa faithful saying the fans are behind the team 'every minute of the every game' saying our support has been 'fantastic'.

He is looking to reward the away fans this weekend with a win against Bolton Wanderers.

'We need to give them something to cheer about again on the road - hopefully starting this weekend. They make so much noise and the players really do notice that. That makes a massive difference. They get behind the team and we really love the atmospheres they create at each ground.'

He also says the team have been 'phenomenal' away from Villa Park this season and they aim to get back on track now.

How nice Emile, thank you for some sense and praise to the Villa faithful who have turned up in great numbers home and away despite ever tightening finances in this economic downturn!

Shockingly its because the real fans go away and the non booers, take liverpool for an example!! I'd rather have the 3k that go away for the home games and no one else than the constant whingers and moaners who will NEVER be happy.

This article completely sums up the fans of our club, on one hand you have the fanatical away support, who give everything to support the team over 90 mins, never get on the players backs, and clap them off at the end, even after a 5-0 defeat. Then you have the home support, where a number of fans boo anything other than a win.We have completely outplayed teams at home this season and not won, most notably wigan and stoke, played great football, yet the ignorant masses at Villa Park boo as we havent won. This will only drive both players and the manager away from the club.

what sums up the hardcore away lads was at anfield when we were 5 - 1 down. 'WERE GONNA WIN SIX - FIVE, WIN SIX - FIIIIIIIVE !!!!!!!' top notch.

The most notable thing about Heskeys comments are that he specifically aimed it at the vocal away support. His lack of any mention of the vocal home support speaks volumes. Those praising him for his comments should take note. Especially those who use the trinity library. It is hypocritical saying that you welcome his comments if you are one the fans who gives no vocal encouragement.

In true Ron Saunders style - I agree 110% with voiceoftheholte. I think there is a section of seats in the Trinity devoted to those with negative disposition. What's the phrase.... "misery loves company."

Ha ha ha. How a comment can be misinterpreted. he is clearly talking about the context of our away support, as constantly refers to them. Our home support is soooooo negative. As is the direction of the comments by Mr Fear being made towards Martin o'Neill, who is by far one of the best managers in the country. Success is obviously not on Mr Fears agenda!
