Hi ho Aston Villa

Published August 11, 2011

You’ll remember that earlier in the year I went to my first (and probably only) football match, and somehow became an Aston Villa fan. I vaguely followed what they were doing for a few weeks, and then sort of lost touch until the season ended. Mr C and I watched the occasional Match of the Day update, but even then only if we happened to be in the right place at the right time - it’s not allowed on the iPlayer.

However, new Premier League stuff is about to begin again, and that means I get a second chance to do a better job of being an AV fan.

I have downloaded the app.

I have browsed the BBC for news, and learnt that:

  1. Ashley Young has gone, which means the people who were beside us at the football match and screamed at “Youngy!” every time he came near, they’ll be bitterly disappointed.
  2. Brad Friedl has also gone. That is annoying because I have a picture of him which is now out of date.
  3. N’Zogbia has arrived. I do not know how to say this name.
  4. Some other people have moved in and out. I don’t know who they are.
  5. No one likes the new manager.
  6. Aston Villa are currently second in the league. Because the alphabet is awesome.

I swiped a pocket size guide from someone else’s newspaper, and it has dates of when they’re playing and stuff. It also has a big picture of Ashley Young, which is unfortunate.

I have even downloaded some football related podcasts (although I do not promise to listen to them).

I have Aston Villa gloves, although it is still summer.

I can’t fail!
