So When Did You Start Supporting Villa?

So When Did You Start Supporting Villa?

Ok, the latest poll, suggested by Doug4Ever asks:

When did you start supporting Villa?

Might as well take this further, so in the article comments or forum explain when you started supporting Villa and how/why?

www.footballfanscensus.com has also got a quick poll asking very similar, why not give them a quick shout as well!?

First game 1969 at the age of 5. First away game, Spuds at Wembley 1971 (still got the £1 terrace ticket in a display case on the wall at home). Dad was a Villan, Mother from the dark side. He always threatend me with a 'trip to Small Heath' if I misbehaved. The two nearest bus stops were the number 11 which took me to our little piece of heaven. The other was the old number 94 which went past the devils lair. First football kit was provided by my Grandad. Unfortunately it was a red kit. Never liked red or my Grandad after that (only joking about not liking my Grandad).

First game, 15th December 1956 - Villa 2 Charlton 0. 25th December 1956 - my Grandmother bought me a wooden football rattle as a Christmas present. 27th December 1956 - used some "Christmas money" to buy two small tins of paint from Woolworths. One tin "Claret" and one tin Blue. Spent the next few days painting and varnishing the rattle. January 1957 - took rattle to next home game against Everton and Villa won 5-1. Never looked back .......
