Aston Villa 0 Newcastle United 0

Villa Park…… Saturday May 7th… 3pm

Attendance: 33,055

Ticket: £42Programme: £3.50

Five games unbeaten then, but no heart and no fight. We had to win today, based upon this performance, no one would ever have guessed. Down with a whimper, in a ground full of empty seats…

I wasn’t able to get a ticket in the away end, so ended up sat with the Villa fans in the Trinity Road Stand. At least we appeared to give the locals something to smile about, and a chance to air their bedsheets…

And when the match got really dull, you could always pass the time by counting those empty seats…
