Sorry - it just states the blindingly obvious, just exactly what you would expect to hear. I could quite literally write a book about this and similar plans that have surfaced over the last 50 years. I remember the days back in the late sixties and early seventies when we had mega crowds and we used to dream about how big the attendances would be if we ever got to the top of the old first division. Well as we all know we got there and won it, but the attendances were no match.

The catalyst in my lifetime was Villa V Cardiff Boxing Day '68 with 41,250 just 19 days after 12,747 against Charlton - the DOC had arrived.

Then there were a good few more, for example [Southampton, Santos,Bournemouth, Man Utd, SunderIand] where massive crowds were recorded. Then in the First Division championship year, the Ipswich & WBA games were circa 48,000 but could have been so much more, they were hard to get into.

Basically I am saying I have heard it all before .... we always to used to wonder how many Villa would get if they ever got to the top of the first division [old money] ....... we got there but successive boards never met our expectations. Why is that then?

And if he was sat on his hands with no plans he would be criticised aswell.

Fairly sensible, ground expansion. It's not on the cards until we are back up on the premier league.

It's just fodder to try and prove they are busy, feed the fans what they think they want to hear. We can't even open the whole of the ground we have got.

It all sounded uplifting to me.

I'd rather a plan to work off than nothing and remain negative.

Hence why Wyness said it would only happen if we got promoted.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good rant

We'd never fill a 60k capacity ground, Once in my 50 seasons have I seen 60 k in Villa park against United in the League Cup semi final . Even then I think the witton held 12k and I was in there with 11.998 united fans !
We struggle to sell out for Wembley games with these day , too many other things that people do on match days like watch games on Streams because the can't be arsed to go .
I think the fan base just isn't there , Sky have seen to that !

Probably wont fill 60k 85% of the time. But for tge Man Us of this world we would get 50 plus (even if most the extra is away fans).

And do that 6 or 7 times and it makes it worth it.

Couple that with the chinese we would hopefully get over if this regen takes place.

Honestly cant see why people are having a go.

We finally have an owner and board with vision and people slag it off.

All we need from what I can see is 25 footballers and a manager to do their job and if they do, I will go into next season with more optimism since the day BFR arrived.

We have an Owner who tells us what we want to Hear Holte lower , just like we had with General K Ranygs Lerners mouth piece and his 30m strikers and the future is bright etc etc , Never happened did it and forgive me for my scepticism but I believe the saying goes "don't tell me show me"

If you say ,so time will tell . I remember people creaming themselves over the Lerner regime and General Know Jack , the sucking up to him on here was sickening . Eventually he disappeared once the going got tough .

Well sorty B67 I dont know what you want


I dont know whether you have realised but we ate a team lower half of the championship, with a stand closed and a smidgeon off falling foul of fifa fair play rules.

If this isnt "going getting tough" then god help is in the future.

From the team, transfers, club and rumours. They have told the truth - good and bad (stating early on in May, money was tight this window) - i dont know what more you want to be honest

I am not slagging anybody off. I think the timing and the nature of the announcement is questionable, we can't get more than a point a game on average, a large section of the ground is closed except when we play Burton Albion, The Chinese government are for sure making moves to curb the flow of money out of their country which isn't good news for many local clubs [smethwick are getting in quick]. It's sad but I think 57 is right, I too can only remember a crowd of 60k plus once - point is back then I was a kid and I went to Old Trafford and Villa Park and I saw Best, Charlton, Law & co in real life, it was surreal. Now blanket ultra hd coverage. True, God only knows how many people turned up to watch Santos in '72. 55K in the ground and untold thousands never got in. There are a long list of big crowds but they are, shall we say, a while ago when if you didn't go you didn't see it. I would like to hear about the North Stand being redeveloped, the corners filled in, Trinity 'B4' be given back to real fans.
As Brucey used to say .... 'What do points make, points make prizes' and until we show signs of getting plenty more on a regular basis then all this visionary talk just doesn't cut it.
