It's worth pointing out that, as far as I know, that was all a CGI film including the stadium and crowd, and was shown on screens rather than people in the stadium saw the lion.

Now it makes sense. Not that good then for cgi! The lion wasn't very well done and i've no idea what the message was.

Apparently we’re replacing the big screens at Villa Park in time for the Newcastle game. Assuming they’re gonna be bigger and better than the existing ones??

That’s a shame if so. I’d thought I’d read (could be wrong?) we upgraded the internal screens close season (to be VAR complaint or something) and was pretty unimpressed if so.

I think they were supposed to be upgraded pre season but it didn’t happen for one reason or another.

I don’t there can be “VAR compliant” screens when both Man Utd and Liverpool don’t have any at all.

Substantial work is being undertaken at this time to achieve this. We are already advanced with our plans to improve the PA system in this timeframe and we will also be replacing the in-stadium big screens this summer.

Update on when the screens will be fitted.

The screen in Doug Ellis/North Stand corner is being replaced, repositioned and will be operational from our next match versus Newcastle on Mon 25th November. The screen in Holte End/Trinity Road Stand corner will be replaced and operational from our match versus Leicester City on Sunday 8th December.

The only reason I said I thought they were he out of ground screens is that I have seen pictures of the new frame for a screen being put up at the corner of the Witton and the North Stand

As a result I understand all VAR decisions will only be positive ones for us going forward.

A morose atmosphere hung heavy in the car following a defeat away at Newcastle. As we sat patiently in the traffic I tried to lift the mood by stating that the brand new screens recently installed at Villa Park would be working for the first time at the next home game. There came only one reply, dripping with sarcasm and loaded with the prospect of a 4 hour journey home:

"Cock-a-fuckin-doodle-do"
