    Morning folks, I've decided to take some time to compose my thoughts about the current situation at the club with all the speculation about a possible takeover, whether one will happen and whether or not we should be excited. Whilst it's possibly good for the club all the uncertainty might prove vexing for us supporters in the meantime.

    Takeover Tales and Other Villa Vexations
    So as another season heads towards its climax we yet again find the club subject to takeover speculation. This has happened in both of the last two summers and both times, for whatever reason,...

    Howdy folks. Long time no post. You all look gorgeous.

    Right then. On Thursday, I had a long, tiring day. I contemplated not going to the AGM, but in the end, I decided I wanted to go, just to see if I could get a glimpse of something, a crumb of comfort, anything to make me believe that Aston Villa still had some fight in it. I expected to be disappointed, but the optimist in me - the part of me that believes I'm going to win the lottery every week! - has a louder voice in my head than it should.

    Sadly, I was left as disappointed as I, frankly, expected to be.

    I'll...

    OK let's start this off by introducing myself, I’m Ashley proud loving family man and Villa through and through, well apart from the time I flirted with Forest as a second team when I was a wee young boy. But that’s a whole different story as I flirted quite a lot anyway, or so I’m informed by my friends and wife! I’m a lovable chap who doesn’t take himself too seriously, so what can I say. Anyway my love for Villa stems back to my Granddad being Villa born and bred but I became truly hooked when Trevor Francis gave me complimentary tickets to Villa v QPR. He played that day and scored a hat trick...

    John Sandie is 24 and lives in Scotland. He regularly travels to attend games (both home and away) though mostly 'enjoys' our games swearing at his computer whilst watching a stuttering stream of events.  He is a member of the team here on www.theclaretandbluearmy.com

    Kerry Lenihan is a long suffering Aston Villa fan, having been a season ticket holder for the majority of her life. Currently residing in the Lower Holte, Kerry attends pretty much every game home and away, she even spent a good few years 'glory hunting' the Claret and Blue from the Big Smoke, if that's not madness/devotion, then I don't know what is, she insists she hasn't lost her mind just yet. Her soul however is in tatters. She's not much of a beer drinker, but won't say no to a Jager or two (is what Kerry said, I'd say more like three or four ha)

    Well it’s been a long time since...
