Today was the most recent. I don't actually remember any wins at VP in person but will take a look.


Happy birthday, mate!

Mine is 12 December and the most memorable win was at the Sty in 1987. Woke up with a raging hangover and spent most of the journey from Euston trying not to be sick. The worst crush I have ever been in outside the ramshackle  Tilton meant I didn't get in until nearly half time, despite being at the ground 45 minutes before kick off. Bruno's winner made it all worthwhile and I was able to down a few that night.

Forest in 1992 was a good one as it was my 30th, and beating Man U in 2009 was a very rare treat. The less said about Blues at home in 2004 the better.

My birthday is 8th January. The nearest weekend is usually the FA cup 3rd round games but for the life of me i cannot remember a villa game on my birthday.

My birthday is August 26.  I can only remember going to a nondescript match at home to Charlton in this day in 1989.  It was 1-1.  Great season though!

Feb 21.  Was born on the day we beat Palace 2-1 in the championship season.  My 9th birthday we beat Spurs 2-0 away to go top in 1990.  My 15th Birthday we drew 0-0 with Arsenal in the LC semi in 1996 to get to the final.  On the flip side, we lost 2-1 recently on my birthday to Stoke in Tactic Tim's first game!

Slightly different take on Games on my birthday to others......here goes!

Since 1889-90 there have been 20 games on my birthdate (not birthday!)
Eight Homes, Twelve Aways
5 Wins, 11 draws, 4 losses
Last win was in 1974-75 Season (I was at school then)
There has been One Premier league game, and 3 (old) Div Two Games, the rest (old) Div One
There has been no game on my birthday since season 1996-97 Why so?
We have played SH/Bcfc, Sunderland, Derby and Forest twice each on this day, no other team(s) more

Conclusion..if you can make 130 years of age, then ecstacy prevails about once every 26 years, and content not to lose about 12% of the time! Enjoy it while you can!
