Printed Banner For Lower North Stand
« on: April 19, 2017, 03:23:19 PM »
We are in negotiations to supply a printed banner to go across the hoardings behind the goal on the lower North Stand like the current "Shaw, Williams..........Peter Withe" banner. The current slogan that has been given to us is:

"Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable" or "Believe in yourself, you will be unstoppable"

Suggestions please?

Change the slogan. It's just a bland 'inspirational' phrase with no connection to the Villa.

Surely if you want something inspirational and uniquely Villa "Do you want to bet against us?" is the one.

Probably about as close as a homage to the great man adorning one of the stands as we're likely to get too.

"Do you wanna bet against us?" is a decent idea but only sounds good when we are actually... good. It's too easy to take the piss otherwise.

The other slogans sound absolutely abysmal.

If we have to have one, I'd rather it was something that actually resonates with our club.  Even something as simple as "The Bells Are Ringing For Claret and Blue" or "We Are The Famous Holte End".

I've changed the title as I mistakenly put Holte End where actually it's the North Stand.

If it's for the Lower North how about 'We Aren't The Famous Holte End.'

My suggestion would be to vehemently encourage this not to happen. It reminds me of those inspirational sayings people have stencilled in their homes in gold paint. "Together we are a family" type of trite rubbish. Shall we change our kit to beige? Paint the seats magnolia?

Is that a quote made by someone connected to the club?  If not it's a generic team building speak line that applies equally to the away team as the home one. 

Maybe something like 'a team of Lions is a Pride of Lions'

I'm not sure where it originated from but I'm quite keen to steer them into alternative ideas.
