Your Views On Other Clubs

Your Views On Other Clubs

From a friendly Villa fan.

With everything going on at my club and fans reaction, I was wondering how other fans see things.

I wanted a view from passionate fans so I chose you guys.

I expect some abuse for visiting here but if a few people could take the time to answer I'd appreciate it.

1) How do view events going on a Villa Park in the search for a new manager and do you see Villa as a laughing stock?

But more importantly

2) How would you react if your club were looking to appoint Steve Bruce

Rather amused at the Villa fiasco. Never really cared one way or the other about Villa or its fans, until the shameful, disgraceful performance of your fans against us when we went down. down. It was so far over the top, it went into orbit. I remember thinking "They wouldn't have gone to these extremes if it had been their nearest rivals" Only Everton fans were (and are STILL) worse. We were baffled, what the hell had we done to Villa fans to warrant this ? It was the football press of course, the less intelligent swallowed every lie and never once thought "Hang on a minute, that doesn't add up" and so Villa fans created a whole lot of unnecessary bad feeling with Newcastle fans. We thoroughly enjoyed rubbing your noses in your own ***** in the 6-0. And now, you're getting a little taste of what WE got thrown at us - nowhere near as bad, of course as the press don't hate you like they hate us - and for an awful lot less reason. (Read Mick Dennis from a NEUTRAL view and see what we mean. Chris Hughton's sacking was "the fans fault" for example, even though the fans went ballistic in defence of Chrissy) But your fans are demanding they don't want him or him or him they want a TOP manager. They will attract top managers off other prem clubs A LOT worse than we were pilloried for, isn't it ? And we were and ARE getting 20% bigger attendances, sell more club gear etc etc etc Villa fans aren't getting the obscene amount of abuse we got, from the other fans - more amused than anything, and puzzled how Villa fans seem to think they're so highly thought of (still nowhere near as bad as Liverpool or Everton fans) but take comfort from the fact you'll never have an actual campaign by the Football media, Radio and TV and far FAR more - the PRESS spending every day attacking your club city and fans as we did.

Cheers Roman. Interested to hear you say Villa fans seem to think they're so highly thought of. You are so correct. Many believe we have a divine right to any manager we like because we are AVFC. They think we are a massive club. Just unrealistic in my view. And apologies for the reaction from some of our supporters when you were relegated, we're not all like that. The 6-0 did hurt as well lol Thanks again

I don't think Villa will ever become a national laughing stock, because they don't have a national profile. Possibly the most boring club in English football I'd suggest. No one would ever care enough to laugh at them. They could win 5 titles in a row, and people would still say "oh them boring ****s". They're just a non-descript club who no one will ever care about enough to talk about them at length, as obviously they do and have done about us for years, so no you could go in the Conference, and wouldn't be a laughing stock, no one would notice or care. I find Everton a more interesting club and support than Villa, which says it all. Secondly yeah I'd have Bruce over Pardew personally.

You sir are an idiot
14/06/2011 13:15:00
Oh, dont worry Newcastle fans, the feelings are mutual from us to you. As for Villa, the Toon lads have my opinion pretty much spot on.
14/06/2011 13:24:00
You sir are also an idiot!
14/06/2011 16:15:00
Hope you get McLeish and get relegated you horrible brummie ********s, after the way you behaved on the day we were relegated i have nothing but contempt for your ***** pot club and ***** fans.

I look at Aston Villa as a big club, I put them about the same level as Newcastle United. Just your fans are c**** and our fans are amazing. I don't think Aston Villa a laughing stock to be honest, maybe because nobody cares.

one banner from one fan MickMartin, I lived in Newcastle and love the Toon and was gutted you went down. Also saw plenty of good Toon fans talking with Villa at the end and shaking hands. Don't judge all by one banner!

I can partly agree with The Fear about 1 fan giving everyone a bad name as we get that every time the sky cameras are outside our ground and they deliberately pick the thickest people to speak to..
