End Of Speculation - Now Lets SUPPORT Villa

End Of Speculation - Now Lets SUPPORT Villa

Is everybody sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin!

We have all watched, speculated and celebrated/commiserated the rollercoaster ride that is the most depressing time of the year - The Transfer Window.

No Villa for a couple of months and nothing but rabid conjecture regarding who will/will not be dressed in the wonderful claret and blue of the Mighty Villa.

I work for 'an established local newspaper' and for the last few weeks I've been having my ears burnt by a substantial amount of alleged gossip, in fact, I got so riled by the latest sport editors 'exclusive' that I started a rumour myself purely to see how far it got out of hand (it nearly went to print, only stopped as my manager, who knew it was a hoax, stepped in and got the plug pulled!)

Now though, we can all smell the fresh air, the stench of bile has cleared and we have a few months of transfer-liberty, until it opens again.

I've been reading and blogging along with the rest of you on the 'only site that matters' (is the cheque in the post Mr Fear?) and have gone through every emotion from jubilation to despair at the things said by you, my esteemed colleagues. whilst we all agree, or disagree, or agree to disagree on many of the topics discussed, we have all demonstrated passion and for that, I salute you.

I have to admit though to being rather tentative of a morning to log on to Vital, as certain posts would inevitably, at some point, get me riled. Every fan on here is fully entitled to an opinion, be it positive or otherwise, but this damn passion that I mentioned makes you forget this and the need to argue becomes overwhelming and I'm a lover, not a fighter!

But, more pressing matters come to a head, we now have a seasons worth of football to concentrate on, so this is a call to arms, a chance for everyone to enjoy a cyber-group hug!

I want opinions put to one side, this post is not about discussion or speculation, I don't want negativity, I want every Villa fan who loves this club and uses this site to take the chance to wish each other a prosperous season, this post is for everyone to get that feel good factor back, I want everyone to tell me how loud they are going to sing and everyone to stand up and say we may not sit in the same stand, but we all stand together.

Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to get the ball rolling - May every Villa fan sing the roof off at every game and may we fully support every player who wears the shirt, but most importantly, may every Villa fan enjoy this season, I'll be right there with you.

Thanks Bobbyfett, beat me to the punch, was going to try to find the time to do something similar. Even down to the manager, some love him, some it appears now loathe him, but one thing you can be sure of, he is our manager for at least this season, so maybe we can all now try to calm down slightly from the bad run and this player/that player not arriving and try to just see how the season plays out... who knows, we might actually be smiling by the end of it!?

What's that Fear off the fence and in with the head in the sand lobby. Every Villa fan is behind the team, every one cries if we lose, gets upset if we don't win, gets angry when we go 18 games with 3 wins. That's what fans do. They also have the right to express that opinion wherever they please without any milk fed crap about getting behind them regardless of their incompetence, and poor performances. When we have achieved something, when we have trophies to gloat about then, just maybe you have a point, otherwise, its jam tomorrow rhetoric and you know it will never happen, despite your wimpish pleas

Ah, it all becomes clear. 48's motive for supporting a team is so that he can gloat to other supporters. And there was me thinking it was about team spirit, a tribal experience, a brotherhood through thick and thin. Football to many is more than about winning - much more. Yes, it affects me when we lose, but conversely I am proud to point out to others our sponsorship deal, our training ground, our youth policy and our England call ups.
