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

Early Cardiff News - No Heskey

There really isn't a snappy headline for that is there. Oh well, I won't worry about it if you don't.

Right, Heskey is highly unlikely to figure in Wednesday Cardiff tie after buggering up his ankle again.

Speaking to the official site, there wasn't much Monny could say:

'He rocked his ankle during the game on Saturday. He was in big discomfort yesterday but it's eased a bit.

'He's unlikely to be fit for the Cardiff game.'

Other absentees are quite obvious, Bouma, Downing, Davies, Harewood (soon to join Newkie on loan), Lowry (joined Plymouth on loan), and Albrighton (joined Forest on loan).

The jury is still out on Luke Young, he's been training again but whether he's ready for a return yet I knows not.

For those who have forgotten:

Kick off is 7.45pm

t's the Carling Cup third round.

Adults - 20, young whippersnappers/lazy students and OAP's - 15

Tickets are on sale now to anybody with a booking history. Maximum six seats per booking, and one seat per client reference.

Simples.

I hope we win the league this season but I will not be holding my breath. However the League Cup is one that is definitely up for grabs. So as this and the FA Cup are our only realistic chances of silverware I presume it will be a full house on Wednesday as we show how important this competition is to the fans???? Or will it be half full as we demonstrate to the team that as supporters that we are not bothered whether we win or lose? I suppose I am saying that those who can't be bothered to go will no doubt stay nice and quiet if the result isn't as good as the real fans would like.

I've just read your post in the Respect The Fans story, I'm now not sure why I bothered reading this one. You're obsessed with attendances and real fan *********, if only everyone was able to be you we'd need a million seater stadium wouldn't we.

I think its really important for the fans to turn up in numbers tomorrow. we have had the best start to our season in years and the players deserve to be supported. Will be a tough game, lets get behind the boys

mike underscore field you can always exercise your right to either read or not read any of the posts that I send. However you are correct in me being obsessed by attendances. It is this that will make or break our club. Our inability to oversubscribe season ticket and match day ticket sales is holding back this club. If we could fill our stadium every game then we would not be having Acorns on the front of our shirts (brilliant as it is). We would be benefitting from the millions that a commercial sponsor would be giving us. If we could fill our stadium then the new owners would already have implemented plans to increase capacity to 52,000. The extra cash, media attention, desire from other players to play at VP would massively improve our club and thereby self generate even more income. So yes it is an issue. And yes wouldn't it be brilliant to fill not the million seater stadium you jest with, but the little one that we currently have. As for trying to to belittle my support, you fail miserably. I support the club in the way I am comfortable with. I buy several season tickets, occasional hospitality packages, a few things from the club shop and travel to an away game every now and again. I am always positive in my support of the club when talking with fans of other teams, and constructively critical when speaking with fellow Villa supporters. I would never boo any one in a Villa shirt and I never leave before the end of a game. None of that is right or wrong. It is just the way that I follow the club. However I do get peed off with fans who moan and boo, those who don't go or put any money into the club but are happy to gob off on this and other sites and try to drag the rest of us into their negative, souless existences. The worst are those who watch highlights of a game and then start telling those who are happy to listen that we need to sell flim flam flom and buy bish bash bosh. I have never critised those who live to far away, do not have the finances or are buggered by work committments. Only those who aren't hampered by these restrictions, but who still choose not to go but still complain that they are not happy. Muppets. Not sure what camp you fall in to though Mr underscore field? We do know that you turn your back on the team before the end of a game so that the traffic doesn't cause you any inconvenience. That is your choice. Not right or wrong, but I think it is disrespectful to fellow supporters and the team. Doesn't mean my view is right or wrong, it is just my opinion. Presumably by replying to this you have exercised your right to continue reading my posts. Thank you. That will be a 1 please :o)
