Seems like a nice article until you have to sign up:

Theathletic have been signing up loads of football journalists from the national and local newspapers.  Most of them are at the top of their professions.

And so that's who they've got to cover us - GregG fucking Evans, the Baggie from The Mail!

Don't think I'll bother subscribing.

Frank Lampard on Villa supporter Prince William:


We had that conversation [about Villa]. I couldn’t understand why [the royals don’t support Chelsea].

“I asked why he supported Villa and he said it was because of a game he watched when he was younger and he felt that was the right thing to do. Then he’s obviously passed that down. I made a small attempt to get him [George] on the Chelsea side.

“He did say George came home from school to say all his friends support Chelsea, but he’s going to hold firm and be a Villa fan.

That is a quote from Frank Lampard Junior, who just like Prince William grew up supporting a team who play in claret & blue.

Not sure if he qualifies as a celebrity but the new Premier League chief executive Richard Masters is a Villa fan.

Cue more Small Heathen conspiracy theories. ;)
