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.
