VILLA 'Everything That Is Still Right In Football'
Our Vital Villa forum was visited yesterday by a Liverpool fan - Dragosani - wishing us well.
An opponent fan wishing us well. Why? Well, according to him Villa represent all that is right with the game.
The gent said:
'I hope you don't mind a Liverpool fan dropping in to say a few things.
I just wanted to say that I will be rooting for you to grab a champions league spot (even if it means Liverpool missing out, my issues with the current Liverpool team I won't bore you with!). I will also be rooting for you to win the Carling Cup final.
My reasons, I feel that Villa represent everything that is still right with English football, because there is a lot wrong with it now.
Villa represent a club that doesn't spend beyond their means. A club that doesn't try and buy success in a season but has made a slow steady improvement, as it should be.
A club that has both an honest and respected manager, but also a respected chairman.
A club that unlike so many in the Premiership has a strong mix of English players and finally a club that promotes a charity instead of a shirt sponsor.
I really like Villa, and I know many neutrals do as well. So here's wishing you every success this and future seasons, you deserve it.'
Thought it worthy of a wider audience, have to say I agree - I know, as Villa fan I would - that Villa are going about things the right way and do feel we have got a fair share of good will from fans at other clubs who appreciate a decent, well run club when they see one.
Nice to read that, will pass it on to the Villa management also!
