VILLA 'Everything That Is Still Right In Football'

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!

Quite right to. It's very hard not to dislike Villa's approach to the game in general

Well I make no secret of my dislike for Liverpool but then a lot of my issues with them would tie in with some of their fans issues anyway! Fair play to the man for his comments (of which I agree but then I am biased) and for taking the time to do that at all to be honest. Good stuff!

Does make for nice reading that, especially in the wake of the latest £££££ import at Man City which again sort of undoes the good work and strong foundations Villa are trying to lay down!

get a grip simon, I post one joke and you jump on a negative vibe. Who published this thing from the Liverpool fan? I've just looked through the articles and can see very little negative, match reports, ticket info, fan interviews, banter, most negative thing is you not taking to a joke. :(
