VILLANS Not Villains

Just a note to the press and some fans.

We are VILLANS not villains.

We aren't baddies! We are Villa 'ns

Pedantic maybe, but please get it right!

Oh, and we are Lions also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And does anyone remember the Villa Villan a cetain Clarrie Blue, who used to be on the front page of the 60's fanzine of that name. He had a pointed hat and looked like a cartoon version of Guy Fawkes. Going to Villa away games in the 60s, it was not unusual to arrive at the ground and be walking through the back streets, to see an aerosol Clarrie Blue the Villa Villan sprayed on a back wall in Huddersfield, Preston or wherever. Beyond my artistic abilities, and , of course, a crime of the highest order which I do not condoner. Happy memories nevertheless. I wonder if those old fanzines are worth anything now? I think I've binned all mine, unfortunately. Still got all the programmes though.

lol, I'd just seen other eds on Vital + some press call us Villains, it isn't right, we aren't... we are Villans! If anyone wants their usernames changed to be correct, feel free to drop me a line and I'll sort! LOL... understood Aussie Villain...! Also Black Danny uses Villains and that is for obvious reasons, so that works as well...!

LOL se5 Villain!

Thanks Irish, nice to know you've got my back!!!!!
The Fear
I would guess they'd have some sentimental value for some so might fetch a few quid!
The Fear
I would understand being called the villains if we were renowned for commiting crimes or being from scouseland. Irish Villa....what does COTVABU mean?!

'Looks like a cartoon version of Guy Fawkes'. Isn't that David Beckham these days?
VillaWillRiseAgain
er no....its Lions. Clue is in the badge. Do we have any "chants" that use the epithet "Villans" ? No. Probably a "label" provided at some point in the past by cockneys or mancs, to whcih I would respond - 2nd part ends in OFF.

Beg to differ malacaxeta but the Villans has always been used in my lifetime which is now in excess of 50 years! Agh.
Cheshire Villan
Am I compliant name Nazi? :)

My uncle gave me an enamel 'Guy Fawkes' Villan all in claret and blue, pointy hat and cloak, inscribed 'Aston Villan 1957'. I was proud to wear it to school in the mid 60's until some bluenose creeps took it off me and chucked it down the bog and because it was metal it wouldn't flush so I fished it out only for some big ape to say it was his and it was never to be seen again. I can only hope woe has befallen him all his life! I also have a couple of those Villa Villan fanzines from about 67/68 in the loft, must dig 'em out.

does my head in as well Fear , , and yes I remember the Villa Villan Stenny.
villan57
I always hated when commentators pronounced the 't' at the end of Paul McGrath. Its silent god damn it.
