Why Sing The Blues - Support Villa!

Why Sing The Blues - Support Villa!

Ok, so here we go. Topic of the day!

I had a poll suggestion from GMVillan not long back - now live - asking if the Holte End spend too much time singing about Blues or not?

My personal feeling is they don't exist unless they are on the pitch playing us, why spend so much time singing about our 'cousins' across the City when we have a fine team of our own to sing about and support? That isn't a knock to them to be honest, just I want to sing about my team, not some local rival who apart from during the local derby, really shouldn't matter to us at all?

Maybe one song, as the my old man song does contain Villa heroes in it, but apart from that, why should we be singing about them? How would that in any way help our players or motivate/help them during a game?

Opinions and poll votes required (by Vital law) I thank you!

Villa songs all the way for me, can't abide the rest of it unless we are playing them, just a waste of time, I never join in with them, it isn't supporting Villa that?

It royally p*sses me off. They are just as guilty to be fair but I fail to see the need! Can't we concentrate on Villa?

To be honest, I'd just be grateful if a few more fans sang at all. Too often it's quiet down VP, granted there are moments when its rocking but to me it's not often enough and there are plenty of people round me in the holte who never sing at all, but don't half like a whinge. When it does really get going its immense and naturally must spur the players on. So my answer is lets focus on getting VP rocking more often and then we can start the cull on the hymn sheet.

totally agree John - but its something seen in other cities like Liverpool and Manchester where there's fierce rivalry and it will never change.

I only sing the one about Karen Brady because it makes me laugh! But I always laugh AT the Blues when all you can hear on TV/Radio is them singing S**t on the Villa - I suppose mainly because they have such a poor selection and variety of songs to sing. We have more than enough great chants to choose from to not bother sining about anyone else. SLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG
