When I was a smoker I'd always leave going in until the last possible minute no matter what was going on pre-match.  I used to find it hard to get through the whole match without a cigarette until they started letting us out at half time and if you've ever been on the Holte steps at half time you'll know there's quite a few who felt the same.  Thankfully I've given up for over 2 years now.

Maybe have the game kicking off at half 12 at Bodymoor and have it shown in the VP concourses, might encourage a few more in early to watch or even put it on one of the screens in the car parks.
Was just going to suggest that myself & it would have to be before as people just wouldn't hang about after especially if we have lost .

Do they show the 12:30 game on the screens in the ground - who am I kidding - the games before ours kicks off at 2pm, 4:30pm 7:15pm, 8pm, 7:45pm (have I missed any?)

Here is a thought. We need two stadiums. (stadia?)

65k + for the first team. Around 15K for the Ladies and Academy teams. 

Barcelona and Man City both have second stadia next door to the their main grounds. Why can't we? (Ignoring the small issue of having to relocate houses and business - if only we had an owner that knew something about smart cities in the past)

Build the Academy Stadium first, 1st team plays there for a year, whilst we completely redevelop Villa Park into a brand new, modern interpretation of Archibald Leitchs finest with the added functionality the Tottenham Stadium has.

Future King of England could open it again and once again we would claim..

"with pride and satisfaction, because its lay-out, its wealth of accommodation, and the organised detail of its complete equipment, go to make Villa Park the most perfect football ground in the country."

We've just spent millions on the Bodymoor upgrade which now contains a pitch with a seated stand. Closer to 500 capacity than 15,000 mind.

City's academy and ladies team stadium only holds about 5 to 6,000.

You mean Citeh, presumably, based on being in Wilmslow.
There's lots of 'City' out there.

We should think big. Logically the first stand to redevelop should be the North Stand, so how about building a gigantic single tier stand. Make it the largest behind the goal stand in Europe.  Make it awesome.

No. The North cannot eclipse the Holte.

Course it can. Got to think big my friend. New generations of Villains would come to love it like we love the Holte.

Rico next you'll be suggesting letting away fans  into the Holte End? We should think big but whilst we are in B6 the Holte End has to be supreme.

Away fans can stay where they are for now, but the old Holte was magnificent in its vastness,  but if the original plans for a 120,000 capacity Villa Park had actually been fulfilled then the Witton End/North Stand would have most likely been as big as the Holte End anyway. Don't get me wrong I love the  Holte, but I think we as Aston Villa should always think big.

It's just no. Not now, not ever. Villa Park is defined by the Holte and its utter awesomeness.

Agree 100% with you and Aftab. The Holte End and the Kop are the most famous ends in English football so it must remain the THE home stand at Villa Park.
