Forgive a stupid question but does anyone actually know when work is going to start on the new stand ?
Is it this summer, next or open ended. ?

Whenever they start I hope itís open fronted and not open ended.

I would imagine that the car chop shops are a lucrative business, it must be based on the amount of stock they seem to have in cars awaiting dismantling. So the shithole of an area they create is not based on poor resources more a "dont give a fuck" attitude.

And that is central to most of societies problems nowadays - nobody cares about their own areas and those that do get terrorised by local scum who have seemingly impunity from the law when they feel like vandalising things.

The number of police on duty in the whole of the city is frighteningly low. Except for football matches; there's always enough police for football.

The pitchside plod at the end of Sunday's game definitely had the look of a bunch of people who had never seen the Holte End before.

To be fair to the Police, when the local kids were chasing Villa fans in Aston Park with machetes last season, they were quick to react and for the next few games were positioned by the park with machine guns for the next few games...

The counter terrorist police were definitely wandering around where the works vans are parked opposite the church.

They have removed all the seats from both corners of the lower North Stand. Don't know if it's for any construction work or if it's anything to do with upcoming events at Villa Park in the summer.
