If I'm not at the match or watching it, I never go anywhere near knowing what the latest score is.

I am responsible for our 10-game winning run in the Championship. I started voting for us to lose in in the match thread in that 4-0 Vs Derby. I've been doing it ever since, with mixed results.

My favourite scarf is an official white one with claret and blue stripes, but we never do well in it. I've consigned it to stay in a cupboard never to be worn again.

That's a shame, that's the nicest design for a Villa scarf.

My match day ritual is the same as Dave W's i.e. none really, but when I'm hanging out washing I match the colour of the plastic pegs to the colour of the clothes on the line.

Don't believe in Matchday Rituals/Habits because a day before the Wimbledon 7-1 i had to much to drink. In the Morning i had accident in my pants, So we won 7-1 and i thought what a great omen so i did a accident in my pants next game which we lost.
After that never did another Rituals/Habit.

I owe you an apology. It was me who shat in your pants that day.

I don't really have much of a ritual. Have been wearing the same scarf to games since the 1994 League Cup Final, but that's more because I like that particular scarf more than through superstition.

I like to look for signs in the run-up to matches.
Initially, it was stats based habbit but I've expanded to keeping an eye out for things in everyday life which may give an indication to something that could happen in the game or even the result.
I like to always check who the ref is and again develop theory to what may occur.

If we've lost the previous home game I'll go through a different turnstile, then back to the other one if we lose again!  ::)

I'll use the same turnstile as the previous game if we won.

on the way to the game if we are in the car we always have to play the Northern Soul song 'Nothing but a heartache' by the Flirtations

if we hear it we never lose  (i may be exaggerating that bit)
