Tony's Tweets
« on: August 05, 2016, 02:11:17 PM »
Seeing as Dr Xia's tweeting seems to be regular, and erm, "interesting" I thought they deserved their own thread.  A couple of his latest:

"I truly hope all the followers won't ruin credits.Recon bought Villa seriously with fully conducted research not 4 chasing fashion toys."

which I assume is related to the buyers of the Bitters and the Dogheads, and

"Like this song called 'Hollow'Though: I don't wanna be the last man standing/I don't wanna be the lonely one..."

Dig at Holloway?

Anyway, I like him, and his vaguely insane Tweets.

I think a person is either sane or insane. I don't think it is possible to be vaguely insane. Although that doesn't stop me from liking the phrase.

I like him too Risso. He clearly cares and wants us to do well. I fear it will all come crashing down when we lose, but having a passionate owner talking to the fans openly is really great.

I am impressed by his tweets because Twitter is banned in China (although being somewhat wealthy he can probably afford a VPN), and also amazed by them and wish he would steer clear. I suppose he enjoys the thrill of skipping around the Great Firewall when the Party are not looking.

My sister worked in Freeman Hardy and Willis in Northampton. Curtly Ambrose went in one day looking for a pair of size 14s.

I think he is marvellous, and am enjoying working out who he is poking at each time he gets grumpy. Also very positive about the Villa. Far better than Randy and the general.

Hopefully this time next year Tony will be aiming his barbs at Robbie Savage.

Did she ask him who they were for?

Net cap of 58 thousand pounds / Sweat on their way down / Grey ports with customs bastards / Hang around like clowns / The uh-containers and their drivers / Bad indigestion / Bad bowel retention / Speed for their wages / Suntan, torn short sleeves

Crows feet are ingrained o n my face / And Im living too late / Try to wash the black off my face / But its ingrained / And Im living too late.

I'm eternally grateful/To my past influences/But they will not free me/I am not diseased/All the people ask me/How I wrote "Elastic Man"

They should do a new version of this - The Fall featuring Dr Xia. It could be the new music for Villa to run out to.
