Not only are Villa the best value for money around, but Stan Petrov can't wait to beat the Baggies either.
Speaking on the Official Site Petrov admitted that he was delighted to see the Baggies promoted and relishes the promise of another set of derby day clashes next season.
Not only because the fans love to hate them of course, but because we have a pretty good record in derby matches. He says that it's going to be a fantastic season for the Midlands with Villa, Blues, Wolves and now the Albion set to fight it out for league points and local glory and he's not worried one jot.
'Villa have done well in derbies since I came here, I think our fans were happy enough with the outcome of the two Second City Derbies.'
So welcome to the Boingers and thanks for the 6 points I think is the subtle message.
But of course none of that has anything to do with Villa being the best value, it just helps to show that we are the best Second City team which is something I never tire of pointing out.
For best value we have to visit our old friends the Football Fans Census and their recent study into pounds v points in the league.
We may have fallen short in the Champs League race, but in this competition we are clear winners when it comes to value for money for fans.
As this has a local feel I'll point out Blues were 6th, and Wolves were 18th. Maybe next season the Baggies will finish 12th?
The table itself was formulated by comparing ticket prices with points gained and goals scored. So no claims on cheating please, we won this fair and square!
Doesn't really make up for idiots referees though.
The club were naturally delighted with the outcome and a spokesman said:
'We're pleased our approach to ticket prices has been recognised and we are more keen than ever to provide our supporters with the best experience when they come to the club to get behind the team.'
