We are in every division but at least in the PL there are a fairly consistent set of fixture times. With our being in the Championship being such a big story we will be more likely to be on TV and will no doubt be kicking off at any time other than 3 o'clock on a Saturday.

Talking about big stories, a few seasons ago a match against Everton at Villa Park would have been a big occasion. Two teams battling for the title of best club outside the "Big Four". Now we've got to start fighting again to replicate that status in the old division 2. Sad isn't it.

I really hope we get the chance to rebuild with a coherent and sensible long term philosophy, as opposed to the drunken lurching from manager to manager we have suffered over the last few years.
I also really hope we can hang on to our current manager.

It's also the most frequently contested league fixture, I believe, just a shame that we might not be seeing it again for a while.

I think it actually is the most played fixture, so this may be the end of a piece of history. Well done Randy. What a Face

This is a damning piece by Lawrenson. It's not wrong either.

Not exactly telling us something surprising, is he? We struggled to beat Wycombe who are somewhat below that level.

To perform in the Championship we need to bring in some new players. Players with the balls to do the job which is precisely where our summer recruitment screwed us up.

I couldn't finish the article, Sandie.

In truth I'm tired of reading all the negative stuff now.

Tom Fox's assertion that we'll be okay because we've got a big name is ridiculously naive.

Most of what Tom Fox has said and done has been ridiculously naive.

I bet we will end up paying more for tickets next season in the Championship than we would in the top flight: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35764007

Any game involving Villa is worth a ticket price of no more than a couple of quid at the moment!
