Sounds very much like the shenanigans for Blues games, the authorities must be anticipating some Polish hooligans turning up uninvited.

Yes, I get the meaning of the word temporary, but pre-fab houses were temporary in 1946 and people are still living in them.

More detail needed from AVFC and West Midlands finest defining the length of the hold.

I don’t think they’ll keep you there 77 years, you’d get in the way of the new North Stand construction.

;D

On the information maps what do they mean by “temporary hold”?

They’ll stop you there and hold you there, not permanently….temporarily!

Only 77 years for the build to begin. I love an optimistic Villa fan.

It probably means for a short time until any congestion has cleared. They won't know the exact timescale until it's underway.

Legia forums expect 2000 Legia fans, those who had already paid for flights and those that are based in the UK. They are a very stubborn bunch even with their own team ownership. They are coming to prove a point.

If you want congestion, just put  one of the boys in blue in charge of the trafgic.

I'm sure the police will be able to cope with them.

There was quite a queue for the upper north before the Alkmaar game so would think it’d be even worse on Thursday, although they have highlighted one of the main problems that night of people trying to get in on the wrong ticket, when using their  phone if it was purchased in the bundle.

Pre-match admission information, because as we all know nothing is ever their fault.

It's a slight addition to normal roadblocks that are usually in place for  any home match. The addictions are to stop home fans from entering  away fans isolated roads and realm.

There's an extra turnstile been put in there now.

Apologies if this has been asked and answered before but why are the first lot of steps as you turn to walk up to the Holte from Witton Lane blocked off now and why are  some of the lower turnstiles sectioned off?

Can I just point out ahead of time for anyone who sees their sob stories online about how Aston Villa have cruelly restricted their allocation.

1) They gave us the minimum and rounded it up by 50- it wasn't out of charity- they got the extra money. Then charged us for tap water after they locked us in.

2) Their racist and homophobic (I was assured they were merely these rather than fascist) ultras, with the big no left turn sign, hung around outside the Villa away end with weapons, causing us to be locked in for over two hours for no reason.

3) They repeated this behaviour in Alkmaar, storming the gates, which led to them being banned for Mostar, and therefore, UEFA and the Police agreeing to restrict their capacity in the UK. Nothing to do with Villa.

This is merely the consequences of their own actions.

What isn't helping is extending the car park to accommodate the coaches. You used to be able to walk round and be able to access the turnstiles on the far right.

Now it's just a bottleneck up the ramp. As much as I love the view in the upper North it's had it's time and needs to be pulled down soon.

As for the game the main benefit is we wont have Chambers running in treacle up and down the right, he was completely hopeless in Warsaw and they really exposed him.

The opportunity is there to win the group on the night and I think we'll do it with a 3-1 win so the tea lady and Jack Woodward will be playing upfront with Chambers at RB in Bosnia and we can rest our first 11 for Brentford.
