Makes me ashamed to be a Bummie & a Villa fan.
pol the outrage bus
One return to birmingham please...
Right, who's got the keys? I left them right here, on the mantlepiece.....
You can't have Birmingham Council putting in an enormous effort , and Aston Villa doing this, so once again, what is the real story? If this is true, Aston Villa can stand by to stand by for dramas from Villa Fans, the Council and Birmingham Media.
Once a year. Thats all the poppy appeal asks for.
Acorns and all those other worthy causes can colect every single match day for the rest of the year.
Is once a year to much to ask?
Shame on them.
first parade is done its all nice and shiny
It's very hard to get through - which of you is jamming the phone lines.
If it is true, I can just see how Radio WM will react
Fcuk them, just get the sellers to stand on routes to Vile Park, Witton island..etc. The fans will show good support im sure and can they really stop them selling on a public road? I doubt the Vile will kick up a fuss either.
Villa are getting it on their forum!
Aston Villa forums.
but maybe this sheds some light on the decision.....
free sponsorship for charity
I hope they have more luck than me getting through.
Why oh why do organizations, firms and clubs do this sort of thing? It's a PR shot in the foot that they should see coming from well beyond direct fire range.
Or is it a case that even today, they allow the outrage bus to be revved up, loaded and driven to their gates, only to turn round and say, "Sorry, it was all some horrible misunderstanding and thanks for all the free publicity"?
Me a cynic? Naaa
According to their forum they are now changing it to 50/50 between acorns and the RBL and blaming it all on a hate campaign by the national press against Villa. What a joke, if a Premiership club cannot support the RBL 100% for one day it's a very poor show.
How very silly.
Anyone care to bet how long until they change their minds.....????
Not very long by the look of it:
