Following on from Liverpool fans were banned at Villa Park for persistent standing it has now come to light that Blues for the derby game have had their allocation restricted to 2,300 a loss of some 600 fans.
For this I fully sympathise with our neighbours. At st Andrews we always stand yet the same local authority does not restrict our numbers and frankly it is a disgrace they have targeted Villa Park 3 times in this season for this offence yet at Blues not once. Do the Man U and Liverpool fans just stand at Villa Park, nah course not.
Of course I wrote a letter to our MP’s about this and apart from one (Roger Godsiff) no other local MP bothered to reply this, this is a such a political impasse on this as the MP’s are afraid to take on the status quo and perceived special interests.
There please support the new standing campaign as per the links below
