Memories - My First Villa Match
« on: August 06, 2010, 10:36:27 PM »
I am sure this has been done many times before, but there may be someone out there who hasn't posted this yet !

My first match was away to Arsenal in 1978, when I was 7, and we won 1-0 with an own goal by Malcolm McDonald I believe.

My main memories of it are seeing the pitch as I stepped into the ground, wondering why I couldn't hear Brian Moore commentating, and the fact it was so muddy that Villa came out in a clean shirts for the second half !

I am taking my six year old daughter to her first match tomorrow and like me it's at Arsenal, but unlike me, she wants to see Arsenal ! I made the mistake of letting her choose her own team and she didn't choose the Villa ! Her older brother is a Gooner too.

Am I allowed to post here again after these confessions ?!
