Galway United's new jersey has a nice villa-related link to it here. As mentioned previously on here, it's the postcode for the ground.

Comer Group sponsors.

Weren't the owners of that company loosely linked with a takeover of Villa years and years ago?

Was it the bloke who lived in the semi in Dorridge?

Bit of a tearjerker alright...Guess with a name like his from a town not too far away, I was bound to be a Villan after the man Deacy had paved the way. Certainly was how I felt when I first heard of him in my mid-teens, reading of how he had lived the dream I was still having. A dream many of us have had and held. A mere example but there must be a part of Risso and Drummond in their weekly 5-a-sides, wearing Villa shirts and feeling they are playing the part of their true self - one which leads Villa to another title; which just happens to be in a universe a little parallel to this...

And great to see the main man, Mr Saunders give the stamp of approval to the subject. Wonder when that was recorded as Ron looks good and his shrewd self in the video.

I've won the Cup once or twice....

If it looked a little like the FA Cup from a squint at a certain angle, well then you have won at life Sir Drummond.

I'm definitely more Lescott and Richards era Villa. Foot like a 50p piece.

When the Kumar brothers were in control of Small Heath one of them insured his car where I worked and he lived in a three bed semi in Henley Crescent just off the Lode Lane, Solihull. I can't remember what car he drove though.

Damn Decimalisation. A lad from Stoke once said I had a head like a thruppenny bit after missing an open goal when the ball pinged off my head into a low earth orbit
