Erm, excuse me, but what has all this to do with Small Heath?

I think because we don't celebrate any single goal - even the one that made us champions of Europe - as much as they celebrate a goal for which not one of their players was credited with the goal, assist, or even a touch of the ball during the period of play leading up to it.

You forgot the cheating excuse for a referee guessing from 50 yds away

I stopped thinking about that around 2008. Painful as it was, I think it's fair to say they wanted it more and would've won that night, whether that goal counted or not.

Dalian's goal for Ipswich against us - a consolation in a 6-2 win for us in a League Cup Game - it was a sublime chip.  Anyone remember it?

Gary Cahill's overhead kick against SHA and Merson's and JPA's to send Coventry down were highlights for me. However SVC's against Atletico Madrid is No. 1 both for the goal but even more so for the noise in the Upper Holte.

I am always amused with their love of the 'Stern John in the last minute' goal at Villa Park. It wasn't even a winning goal, it was just an equaliser.

Due to age, I've had the pleasure of seeing some really cracking goals by the Villa, too many to choose but one that does stick out was a goal by Pat McMahon in the last minute/added time against Bristol Rovers in the League Cup quarter final replay that gave us a one-nil win to set up a semi-final against Manure, and we all know what happened there. *

* It was a scorcher that gave the Sheppard, the ex-Albion keeper no chance.  If you can find the programme from the next home game there's a great photo of it.


Most of us post YouTube videos of Villa goals on here. Dave posts videos taken from Pathe News footage  ;)

Pardon me Damo but my clips go back as far as William Friese-Green!  How very dare you?

I think theyíre pretty much safe now.
I know Rotherham are poor, but I canít help but think they were stitched up a bit. Was it 4 games in 10 days they had to play to catch up?

Edit: 4 in 8 😳

Heard a rumour the other day that is possibly the most Blues thing ever if true.  It goes that St. Andrews is built on the site of an old tip and that parts of it will not be able to reopened when fans are allowed back because dangerous gases are leaking from the ground.

To be honest, it sounds like something made up by one of our own, but it sounds exactly like the kind of thing that would happen with them

It is probably made up about the gases as nothing official on that yet. However if you look at Wiki for the sty, you will see it mentioned that they cut lots of corners in building it initially in which part was offering the locals an area to dump loads of rubbish to landfill up a large hole which is where their Kop is (which is one of the closed stands). They also blocked up some artesian springs with rubble as well. Now water will always beat rock given enough time so I do wonder if the ground water from those is also what affected the areas as well.
