Reminder To Villa. There Are FOUR Stands, Not One

Reminder To Villa. There Are FOUR Stands, Not One

I get a bit bored of this. Do they want the other three stands worth of fans to just not bother turning up?

The Holte End has been a flop for the last few seasons, if they don`t sing sh*t on the city, they don`t sing full stop. And yet you would think it is the only stand at Villa Park.

I sit in the Trinity and make as much noise as possible, fair enough, it isn`t the noisiest stand, but it is full of loyal, passionate fans. But you have to doff your cap to the North Stand, especially Lower, they are the smaller group but they are the ones who have tried to make the noise over the last few seasons in the absense of the Holte End boys.

I struggle to remember the last time anyone came out with any humour or any originality. Maybe this season will be different. The noise we make away from home gets us much praise from the oppo fans, we could do that at home as well, if we stopped obsessing about the other lot in the City and sang in support of our own team!

Darren Bent must have had his headphones on as he`s told the official site that the Holte End were 100% behind them last season. Half of them weren`t there, the other half were downstairs having a pint! It was silent and very depressing.

He`s right though, if they can get the buzz back on the field us fans will also respond:

'It's a great place to play football at Villa Park. But last season our home form let us down and we need to improve on that this season. We want fans to wake up and think 'yes it's matchday, we're off to Villa Park.'

Adding, in an interview with Paul Brown at www.avfc.co.uk,

'I know there's a new campaign around where fans are being encouraged to really unite in the Holte End, with scarves and balloon and things like that. I am all for it! It's all good fun, it creates an added atmosphere in the stadium and the lads would love it. I know last season was difficult for the Villa fans. At times we weren't playing the best but I am sure this season it will be better.'

So, an end to sh*t on the city and a few new songs then maybe?!

Totally agree. The Holte End ( of which I am one) has become full of negativity in recent times. The only regular songs are those that are anti Small Heath. Lets try to support our team in a positive way. Remember the days when we had a different song for every one of our players? As they warmed up before the start of the game, the crowd would start their rendition of a musical who's who. The players recognised their own songs and waived in appreciation. Let's all make a noise FOR our team and not waste our energy and voices on denigrating our neighbours!

Fear: spot on. yes there are many in the Trinity whio make little noise but give 'em something to cheer and they do. The Holte? Agreed almost nothing last season for long periods and **** on the city is so boring and pointless. Why mention them? Support your team, don't care about the other lot. Regarding Bent's comments, it simply shows unthinking platitudes are being spoken with little thought. This is what they want me to say: here it is.

Good, not just me then! Agree Nat999 should be singing songs for all our players, what better way to show our support and what better way to spur them on!?

sick of singing about the noses, they have never and will never have nothing on us. They know their place in the food chain of football and are rapidly sliding down it. We have bigger fish to fry so why constantly bang on about it? why constantly sing about a team that are forever going to be in our shadow? We need new we need loud and we need fun

"He's Here He's There - He's all around the square Andy Gray, Andy Gray"......takes me back to when if you didnt want to sing all you had to do was stamp your feet in the Trinity !

Ah, the stamping of the feet in the old Trinity, beautiful stand, that should have been a listed building!

We have a sweepstake where I sit as to how many minutes it will take the Holte to start their obsession about the neighbours across the city who should not even enter our heads unless we are playing them! Usually within five mins!
