40 years ago today, my first ever Villa match as an 8 year old, 1-0 win. Sid scored the goal.

Yesterday was exactly 45 years since my dad took my bother and I to a Second Division match against Albion. Afterwards he said he wouldn't take us to another local derby... So my first Blues game was the 3-0 in the Championship season with my school mates

Sometime in the 1950's.  Buggered if I can remember who won.  I remember us beating them at home 6-2 in 1960, Gerry Hitchens got a hat-trick.

February 1978 - a 1-0 defeat at their place where we literally battered them. Could have scored 5. Hit post and bar on more than one occasion and had a few kicked off the line.

16 years ago today was the first and only time I've seen us play that lot.

At the sty in 1980 near the beginning of our title winning season, around September I think. We won 1-2, Frank Worthington scored a penalty for them and Sid with a penalty and Allan Evans volley on the turn won it for us. My bluenose uncle took me as my other uncle who he usually went with was working so I had his season ticket. My uncle sat on one side of me in their main stand and sat the other side of me was Benny from Crossroads.

Villa 1 Blose 2 - Sept 1976 at VP

A very hot day and we scored first. Andy Gray, I think. John Connelly and Francis for them if I recall correctly.

That was my first derby as well. I was distraught - our only defeat at home that season. They  beat us 1-0 at Villa Park the following season too. I didnít see us beat them until Sidís winner in 1979.

The 2-1 defeat at home when Barry scored in 90th min.

Couldnít believe how shit we were and 2-0 down at halftime.

Very next was 3-1 win with Baros scoring and since then I havenít seen us lose at home to them.

That 2-1 defeat in December 2004...we were absolutely dreadful in that first half. Heskey looked like the world's greatest striker. They were rampant and we could have been 4 or 5 down.

That was my second Blues game.

Third was the Cahill game, fourth was the 5-1. Both helped to eradicate the memories of the previous two, and then some.
