Villa are a team, for me, who I can generally respect, even envy, given that, in my lifetime, especially early teens, they won a fair amount (see below) and, importantly, still watch their team in a decent ground they've had for donkeys.
When they won the league, they did it with only 14 players and, if memory serves, the First Division was 22 or 24 clubs. They then cantered to the European Cup final and raised that aloft.
All this nevertheless translates into a deep satisfaction, if ever we go to Villa Park (a ground holding many memories for loads and loads of us), and emerge with a victory.
They're going to be desperate to get some points on the board. Hope our lads are up for it and in tune with one another.
