Villa - Back On Right Road
Attendance: 60 023
Well, well, well. Whatever next, a lottery win for every Villa fan in existence?
We've got Doug Ellis departing, we've a new board backed by a billionaire looking more and more likely to complete a takeover, we've Martin O'Neill as manager and we drew with Arsenal - and weren't that far away from sneaking a win.
Now fair enough, the stats show that Arsenal dominated, but at the end of the season, the league table won't. Match Stats - Click Here
Martin O'Neill has already obviously got the team organised and ready to rock n roll. A few tasty additions and it will be HELLOOO, HELLOOO, THE VILLA ARE BACK, THE VILLA ARE BACK (as sung by Oasis and Santa Clause - aka Doug O'Brien - at the Villa the other day!).
Not only that but, as a fan who rang me from the ground said, the optimism from the fans is back, there are smiles on the faces and at last they are coming out of a game happy.
Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by DeanoVilla, Arsenal, win, lose or draw? 49% got it right and said, draw, 32% predicted a loss and 19% were so early right and said we'd win.
And if anyone ever doubted the Villa fans would want American owners?
USA, USA, USA chants during the game and a few American flags in toe.
As my mate said, 'I can't see anyone topping that'.
Happy days. Now what will we moan at?
