I think given the issues with away tickets, we'll start to have some very, very old season ticket holders over the next few years... A problem Liverpool have.

I can't work out what that means Ads !

I believe he means that season tickets (especially in good seats) will be so prized that families won't want to give them up when the ST holders die.

Ah, thanks. Could be a new supporters club in the making.

ST holders don't die, they become Holte Enders in the sky.

Doesn’t someone notice all these dead season ticket holders when we’ve all gone home?

Found this whilst looking for other news. My journey takes me past the Villa Chippy near Witton Road and we've often wondered why the council don't supply more large temporary bins on match day rather than pay man hours to clean up the huge amounts of rubbish left near overflowing bins.

What a strange article that is. Disruption around football grounds is hardly news and the amount of beer bottles and violence reads like something from the seventies.

Yes it could have been written from a desk about any football ground, anywhere in the UK, anytime since car ownership became widespread. I guess the Planning Application and the increased profile of club recently pushed in up the features editors list of priorities.

But, if I lived locally and didn't have an interest in football, I think I'd look more kindly on the rich neighbours if they maybe helped clear up the area after games.

Exactly.  It's like the editor decided we need to have some balance to all this good news about Villa recently and this was all they could come up with.

These days I think fans walking to the game are more in danger from the rubbish, abandoned cars and terrible parking of the locals, rather than the other way round. The roads on the Whitehead Road side are an absolute state and it's 100% not football fans causing the issues. As for smashed windows - there seems to have been an increase in supporters' cars getting done this season too.

No doubt the Villa can do more - but I don't think there is a srcuffier part of the city than the roads leading up to Villa Park

Woman in that article listing the stuff that annoys her, includes "there's nowhere to park your car".

Not really sure what she expected when buying a house (20 years ago) in the football stadium which has been there 125 years.

Sympathetic to the rest of the article, though.

I'm sure we've talked about this before but a temporary one way system away from the ground for half an hour or so after the final whistle would benefit pretty much everyone.
