Very good news from Villa today.
On the official Twitter feed.
Aston Villa FC @AVFCOfficial
Tickets for our friendly with Nottingham Forest are now sold out. #AVFC #LambertsLions
This just shows the massive pulling power and optimism of having Paul Lambert as the manager. OK so the price was cheap and Forest easy to get to by to sell out a friendly says a lot about the change in fortunes the past two months.
To sell we think 3500 tickets for a nothing game (even I am going !!) means that when the season starts in just over two weeks the crowds at Villa PArk should be way up.
Of course this will mean a significant amount of extra revenue for the club never mind I hope the much better results.
For once, for the first time in three seasons, Villa fans have something to look forward to !!
