THE VILLA v THE TOON---IT'S NOT LIVE!---OH! YES IT IZ!

Posted '6:30 am bells' Saturday 17th September 2011
"SOMEWHERE NEAR ST JAMES'!"
Later on this afternoon we will attempt to stretch wor unbeaten run at the start of the Premya Leege season to FIVE! games when we visit Villa Park @ '3 bells' for a rare non televised game!-------Aa say 'non televised', but that doesn't include a canny few bars in 'The Toon' that have the Arabian 'Pirate' Channel and who are blatentleee advertisin' that the game IZ live on the chalkboards in their boozers, despite the '3 bells' Saturday start, which iz supposed to be a 'no!-no'! (see above!)

However!---Villa Park iz not a happy place for us in recent years and we have lost on the last fower visits here, includin' that horrible day in May 2009 (IF yi divvint naa!---divvint ask!)

At sixty six quid for a train ticket and forty three quid for a match ticket it isn't a cheap day oot!---but!---aa cannit complain as 'Norman The Cowboy Plumber' and his 'bruvva' 'Fawlty Towers' have had to cough up an eye waaterin' ninety five quid just to let 'the train take their strain', coz they booked it up late!
And they wonder why attendances are gannin doon! (Away tickets were still on sale to season ticket holders/members on Friday neet!---2,700 allocation)

Match report to follow on Sunday (sometime!)
