aston villa west brom pitch invasion villa park

All attempts to brand #avfc fans celebrating as “hooliganism” will be defeated through the cunning use of facts over fiction.

This was a derby, a key cup tie and the scenes on the pitch were not a return to the “dark days”.  They were people celebrating, harmlessly.

You will always get a mindless few [they weren’t there by the way], but the vast [vast] majority were happy fans.

We do not prescribe to a sanitised clinical stadium or supporters being anaesthetised in their seats.

It is Villa Park, our historic home, not a public library.

Nor do we condone or want thuggery.

We want passionate fans, players… and to be fairly reported by mass media.

Up The Villa.
