Couldn't you have stretched to a microwave so she could knock something up for herself?

Her actual words, as told to us on the day by the chairman were, "A portakabin? I can't bring my guests to a bloody portakabin, what will they think?" Stuck up cow.

think if you have a 'public' image you should be banned from supporting a team.. fair play to cameron but i don't want him anywhere near a villa match. same for kennedy who i remember back in the day as a posh voiced boy rather as some cockerny geezer, and prince william who's probably been erm a posh voiced boy since day 1. Actually i have rather have some sympathy for HR William - on a loser whoever he supports. god knows how manc's cope with the flotsum and jetsum that attach themselves with their club but them most of 'em are about as manc as i am.

Your attempts at trolling are becoming far to obvious these days, you really should try harder.

But using your passion for such is extremely disrespectful to Nigel Kennedy who apart from being a world renowned Violin player has more support for the club he loves in a day's growth of his his little finger nail than you have or will have in your life time.

Sorry, but i never trust someone who changes his accent. If you're posh you're posh. Live with it.


How stupid of you.

I said in a previous thread that I thought NK was an inverted snob and also that I didn't like his style of violin playing (which is of course totally subjective and personal taste).

Not withstanding any of that I'm pleased he's one of us.

At least she was honest.

I don't see Nigel Kennedy as a 'celebrity fan', more as a Villa fan who just happens to have become famous.

Yep, a celeb fan would have been in the director's box at QPR. Nige was in amongst the rabble.

How do you know he changed his voice? A documentary from the 70s? Some schools could be right c***s about speaking properly in public.

Does anybody know how Mervyn King became a Villa fan? I can only guess it was from his time at Wolverhampton Grammar School.

Edit: Just realised he used to teach at Birmingham Uni.

I'm not sure that list is particularly accurate. Joe Calzaghe?  Come on...

I think Calzaghe's on record saying Villa is his second club.

Brendan Gleeson the actor is a Villa fan though. Since the 3rd division days as well.

They've listed Steve Winwood as a Villa fan but he's definitely an Albion fan.
