Aston Villa v Bolton Wanderers, Sat 30th Sept @ 3pm

BBJ - 28/9/2017 17:31

My first ever visit to Villa Park was on 2nd November 1963 and the opposition was Bolton Wanderers. The result was 3-0 with two goals for Harry Burrows and the other from Tommy Ewing. There were close to 19,000 of us in the ground.
Almost 54 years later, I'm expecting another comfortable victory with a larger crowd in attendance.


Hope you are right BBJ. Harry Burrows "daisy cutters", you did not want to get in the way of one of those.


December 1962 Villa 5 Bolton 0. 34,000 crowd
Joe Mercer had just bought Phil Woosnam and he inspired a great victory with one of the best midfield performances I've ever seen.

Phil Woosnam - sheer class. Brings back memories. Terrific player to watch.

My first villa v Bolton game would of been late 70's early 80's , Sam Allardyce would of been their centre half , I think we beat them at villa park , away was possibly a draw .

One of the best games ive ever seen us play in my lifetime was against Bolton, early noughties, league cup semis where Super Gav McCann gets sent off early in the game after losing 5-2 up there - think that was the game where jay jay okocha tore us to pieces.

We won 2-0 with ten men, seem to recall a Hitzlslerger screamer and we were all over them all night playing at 100mph

And possibly one of the worst games was the FA Cup semi in 2000, a shocker of a game.

Quite how Gudjohnsen missed when he had a virtually open goal is still a mystery. That game was only memorable for the fact that it was Dion's first game back from his broken neck, and he knocked in the winning penalty, if memory serves?

It appears that Gabby is fit for.......... er, selection?! Lansbury isn't so surely Bruce must stick to the same starting eleven surely.

I just hope he isn't tempted to tinker.

Will be another big test of a different kind for us. Fans as well as players.
Expectation probably the highest it's been, at home against the worst team in the division so pressure on the boys.
We as the crowd have to stay patient, if we start to get restless it will not help.

As others have said an early goal will be very handy!
A nice comfortable 2-0 will do just fine.

Must win or it will all fall very flat very quickly and all hard work will be undone.

I think the difference in the last couple of games has been that Kienan Davis looks more relaxed and assured now that he has scored a couple of goals and he is playing naturally and not overdoing things. He will be a big threat to them and that might leave it open for Kodija and Adomah to find a bit of space.

another 4-0 to the Villa

It's just refreshing to have 5 genuine goal threats on the pitch at the same time. Can't remember the last time we could say that.

Makes it much harder for the opposition. What do you do? Mark Kodjia and Adomah out the game, well roll up Davis, Hourihane and Snodgrass.

Yes and Terry is usually good for 5-6 goals as well.

Had a text off Villa earlier saying they’ve missed me (Haven’t been to the last two home games due to work and holiday), will be there tomorrow to see another 3/4 hopefully! We’ll draw 0-0 or something knowing my luck.

Bolton panni sticker book 1979. All the players look like they are in there 40s. Why do players from the 70s look so much older than they were. Francis Lee looked 50 when he was playing for Derby. I was helping my in laws clear there garage and found said sticker book with only 4 stickers missing , I remember having that book but because I wasn't well off like my brother in laws parents , my 79 book had more empty spaces than full. One thing I do remember was getting the villa badge and it was like getting Willie wonkers golden ticket.

Lol yes, quite a few looked like pub players with a fair bit of timber and moustaches all over the place

I had the same text, the two home games I've missed have been Norwich and Forest so perhaps my text should've been a different one
