'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Vital Villa Welcomes Former Rivals Ed MF

Vital Villa welcome Mike Field to our Vital Football network full time following the demise of the Rivals Villa site.

Mike and I go back a long long long way, I first cut my teeth on his Holteenders site on the Rivals.net platform.

Vital seem to be attracting former Rivals members and editors at the moment and Vital Villa have certainly profited now that Mike is with us all the time!

(He paid me to say all that)

Get involved

This website is your website and we are looking for people to contribute. Do you go to most of the games and have an opinion? Why not write a match report, full team or reserves, especially away games as I don't get to many of them!? Or have your say on any issue you wish Villa related. Perhaps you are a budding journalist or even just someone who is very opinionated? Well why not join our team? If this interests you please contact Vital Villa.

Vital Villa is now available on both facebook and twitter, so if you are that way inclined and more importantly understand all this new fangled dangled stuff, feel free to watch us, poke us or whatever else you are meant to do there!

Twitter: www.twitter.com/VitalVilla

Facebook already has over 640 followers (I assume this link will work!): Vital Villa - Facebook

If only it was the first stage of Sky collapsing and taking the inflated hype version of football with it, hey? Didn't Rivals start going tits-up straight after a re-design...? :-O

I think most would agree with the first sentiment Neil. Nice try though :-) Rivals was going tits up in 2002, unfortunately for Rivals successive owners never did what it could've become again justice in my opinion of course.

Are far as I'm aware it's only Rivals that was culled, the other sites Sky brought are still operating and presumably will continue to do so 365, Teamtalk etc etc

Yes, he does. Mainly because he sat on a copy of the Birmingham Mail and literally has "inside transfer news"!

Gordon, I suppose this makes me the first Villa signing of the summer (ignoring the far more talented young lad from Arsenal obviously). Oi Baker, you trying to say I talk.......

we did a book comp recently lee, you also have the greatest prize of all, you get to see my ugly mug every now and then and buy me a pint! To be fair we are still pursuing sponsorship for the members league, so at the moment we just give some cash out to the overall winner each month, need to get some decent sponsorship so we can really push it and give out top prizees for contributing on the network.
