Due to the size of the fanbase, the amount we are on sky and the fact that we are a crisis club constantly on the news and internet....I would say they will get more exposure with us than some of the smaller PL teams and probably cost a fair bit less.

Any publicity is good publicity or whatever the saying is. someone has played a blinder signing us up

I might have got it wrong, but I think I read 32Red are sponsoring another four or five clubs in the Championship (they're definitely sponsoring Preston) so they will be getting plenty of exposure!

Am I the only one who silently sniggers each time the read the name Luke Organ?

You're not alone, mate.
I did but only in the sense whether he was the monkey or the grinder.

AST computers. I bought a computer on the strength of that and scared to go into the loft in case it’s still there.

Mita Copiers. King of the Villa sponsors.

Two things I remember about Mita is that we rushed a deal through in time for a live home game against Liverpool in the early days of live league games (the Rush hat trick game I think) and we got into trouble as the dot over the 'i' in Mita made the logo bigger then the rules allowed. We also had a jingle they played over the PA system.

"Aston Villa Mita, Mita Aston Villa, copy that, copy that" if I have remembered it right.
