Why Have The Wolves Fans Become Obsessed With Villa?

Why Have The Wolves Fans Become Obsessed With Villa?

I am a bit baffled (I am often baffled, life does that to me!) as to why the Wolves fans, who should be celebrating having the runaway best team in the league, are so obsessed with Aston Villa?

Are they turning into their rivals WBA in being #obsessed ?

What is funny having watched some of the stuff on twitter, most Villa fans really don`t get it or care either.

They were promotion rivals, now they aren`t, they are promoted short of a disaster and we are all playing for 2nd place. But local rivals? Not for me I must say. Although I do see the irony saying that and doing an article about them!

So many 'mind the gap` posts at the weekend it was just funny. It only goes to prove my point, Aston Villa are and always will be - no matter where in the league we are - the biggest club in the midlands.

That for me isn`t actually enough to be fair, I always saw our ambitions as being higher, but nevertheless... we are!

And apparently we are to face a period of their massive superiority:

And a good chat with a Wolves fan, think we`ll agree to disagree on being rivals though!

Built on sand... and bitter!!!

Does the fact I've now done an article on them being obsessed now make me obsessed?!?!?!

Give their moment in the sun! I agree, it's pretty small-time, but typical of the lesser clubs in the Midlands - Coventry fans used to behave the same way during their golden age of finishing 17th or 18th in the top flight every year. Baggies have more claim as they are our nearest geographical neighbour, and the Noses just hate everyone as far as I can tell. Wolves only crowing like this because they are top of the League at the moment. Don't remember all this nonsense last season when they were battling relegation. My old man is a Dingle, and personally, I would be very happy if we occupied the top two places come the end of the season. As for 'Mind the Gap' - we are quite a bit closer than we were at Christmas, so they might want to pipe down with 14 games still to go.

when they were battling relegation, I don't remember any of us giving a stuff? It's odd I tells ya!

It certainly is - I'd have thought they would be more interested/excited by the fact West Brom are so bad and staring at relegation than what we are doing.

Lol...... it's just a phase they're going through.

Wolves are so far ahead at the top of the league the media attention has turned to the race for 2nd and I'm guessing they feel a bit left out - hence the need to make up some rivalry that Villa fans just don't feel at all. They have been far and away the best footballing team in the Championship this season, however I'm not sure how long it will be before FIFA/UEFA come up with some rule to prevent super agents being involved with owning football clubs. The elite teams wont like it and they usually get their way.

They've been very lucky with injuries - if they'd had injuries comparable with ours (Kodija, Jack, JT, Jack again) or if we hadn't had those, confident we'd be above them. Even if we won this division I'd take no pride in it - we should never have been allowed to slip this far. Whereas for them, one half decent season in Div 2 is something to crow about. Looks like it's not just Small Heath who are #smalltime

agreed garygaryshaw, the one called me bitter when I said it's all being built on sand there, but it is. The loan system is a shambles I think.

It's called taking the p**s something vile fans don't like, they can can dish it out but don't like it back. Has for injuries, the reason we haven't had so many is because of the staff we have, the way we train etc, maybe the vile should look at their training and ask the question "why" you have players out injured, Jota gets kicked from piller to post most matches but still gets up. Your problem is you have the disillusion of grandeur when all you are is no better than any other Midlands club, maybe it's winning all those trophies in the late 1800s/1900s that have done it because you ain't won a lot since 1952. Still you will gave a lot more to moan about when we get promotion has our owners will spend millions, maybe even upwards to a billion to get us were they want. WOLVES AYWE.??????

Love this obsession, show's them up for what they are. The 'vile' stuff is particularly funny, life's pretty poor when you have to imitate our neighbours. As johnwolf might say, "inbred nonces, ay we"
