Aston Villa, and other football teams!
Remember the saying - beggars can't be choosers. Who would want to take on that job with all the backroom problems there?

I see the Birmingham Post are reporting that number one priority for the senior management at the allowed grounds right now is the redesign of the club badge!

££££££££££££££££££££ Someone who is up for the challenge of taking a big city club with a regular 30k support even when they struggle back into the epl. You can say what you like about Villa but they have much bigger fan base than Birmingham City.

Just looked up the stats. Blues are averaging 17000 despite a good season, Villa are averages just shy of 35000 despite the worst season in their history. Massive difference between the cubs.

 The dictionary definition of tradition is - a long-established or inherited way of thinking or acting.

To me that means current Villa suporters are meekly following the long-established thinking of their fathers, grandfathers and most likely their great grandfathers.

When was Villa supporters last proud of their achievements?

Well in my lifetime we have won a League title and European cup, all blues have to show is the league cup which we won about 6 times anyway so no big deal.

Yes I know Villa are going through a lean period but form is temporary class is permanent. We've been down to the mugs league back in 86 and came back up. And all these experts Villa will drop down to league 1 are the same ones that predicted Man City had no chance against PSG so who cares.

Really I don't know what to expect next season!

It would be great, you've got a couple of teams like that in Leicester with LCFC & the Riders BBL team.

Both are well run & properly funded though.

Does it matter whether TGM has attended  games this season. I'm sure like many of us he has attended many football matches over his life. i dont see the point of keeping bringing this up. Things can change for many reasons that stop people attending games.

I have attended many many games, including several seasons where I attended almost every home game, however commitments on time change over time.

Sometime I'll work out exactly how many venues I've seen live sport played at.

As I am either photographing sports at weekends, and umpiring cricket during the summer, together with other work and personal commitments, I've had very little chance to watch football live this season.

It's now 12:22am, I've just driven home from shooting a BBL game, including sending off images for my clients live coverage of the game, & now have about 300 images to download, sort, process and edit overnight for distribution to clients.
