What food could be served at half time?

Maybe some 1870s food wouldn't be a bad thing.

Quote from: BBC
According to a study published in the Royal Society of Medicine, "How the Mid-Victorians Worked, Ate and Died", the combination of enormous amounts of physical activity (most people did physically demanding jobs which meant they were active for 50 to 60 hours a week) and a diet rich in fruits, whole grains, oily fish and vegetables meant that Victorians suffered less from chronic, degenerative diseases than we do.

Dr Paul Clayton, one of the authors of the study, claims that they were "90% less likely to develop cancer, dementia and coronary artery disease than we are today". It certainly meant that diseases like type-2 diabetes, which plague modern society, were vanishingly rare.

Doesn't the massively lower life expectancy back then rather undermine claims like 'there was less dementia'? Most people didn't live long enough to see if they developed it.

The pedantic answer is it makes the claim more plausible. Would be interesting to know how much influence each factor has though.

Isn't the lower life expectancy average due to higher death rates at birth and infancy but once you got passed 5 for instance (can't remember the exact age) they actually used to live quite long? I think that applies much further back as well.

If this is true, itís not too bad.



Aside from the bell end in it yeh itís nice

Our 1995-96 kit was first publicised with the old Muller sponsor on the front so I am hanging on to this as a reason to think this beaut may well be the actual new kit!

Seem that castore have a template that all their clubs have to use.

I remember us moaning about this when everyone was excited that we had landed Nike back in 2007(?).

Without sounding too negative, we are already late to the party with the launch. Seems like we are always playing catch up with the release and then, subsequently getting hold of the actual kits.

Would be nice to be the first team to release the new kit for a change.

I know this has been discussed before, but why is it that we never release our kit earlier in the summer? I appreciate that the clubs who sell the most shirts get priority with manufacturers, but surely they have capacity to deal with us as well? Do clubs who sell fewer shirts just use templates, and this is why they are able to release theirs earlier?

In the 90s we were quite efficient with new kits, especially the mid 90s, Collymore signing in May '97 wearing the new away kit springs to mind. In May 2001 against Coventry we even wore our new kit  for 2001-2002 in the last home game (the day we relegated them).

This all seems to be a Lerner era thing for some reason. I wonder did we get offered more money by Nike to keep the kits longer and it just sort of got us into this crap cycle we can't get out of?

Wouldnít it have been in Nikes interest for us to keep kit for a shorter period of time ?

I am only guessing as I associate the 'late villa kit' with that era.

Maybe its something to do with contract dates?

My daughter wants to go to the Villa shop for her birthday. (June 14th). On one hand Iím happy that it will be full of sale items, on the other I donít want her being upset when the new kit comes out just a few weeks later.

There are some restrictions around parking because of next weeks gigs so I'd check first. I think the shop is still open and 14th isn't a concert day.

Wasn't there one year in the 90's where the kit wasn't available to buy until October?  Sure it was 98/99.  Or have I made that up?

If this was Nike or Adidas they would be doing the exact same. We would have a bog standard design that they would be rolling out to 20 other clubs.
