Just got rid of my old man, my Sister and nephews (all season ticket holders)
Some people would do anything to get hold of a season ticket ... bit greedy going for 4 though!

I am sure someone on here will know. Just chin-wagging at work, and the conversation about the big screens at Villa Park came up . When were these installed , I am thinking mid 90's ??

IIRC the Big Screen discussion was the forerunner to the Barry not taking the penalty.

In about 97. The company doing them got a few gigs (including Ibrox) but went bust. I remember Abdul Rashid trying to hush it up because it was causing Villa grief. I think they went up a year late because of that particular company failure.

Christ, we were the kiss of death for any commercial partners around that time weren't we? AST, NTL, Rover, even the Mita got swallowed up by Kyocera.
