Sweet Victory

Let the pictures do the talking first, shall we?

I paid 37 quids for this, it better be worth it.

And they took the pitch for kick-off.

Before you know it, Nigel Reo-Coker scored for the away team in the 4th minute!

Villa made 2 more dangerous tries in rapid successions but Gomes was excellent in goal. Soon afterwards, one of the stewards told me I can't take pictures in the stadium, even though I can see other people taking pictures from around the stadium. I suspect she sniffed that I'm a Villan amongst the throes of Spurs so decided to single me out.

Anyway, the game panned out to be a very good one with Villa constantly on the attack and the threat of Ashley Young was very apparent. After the break, he went on to score Villa's second! Spurs introduced Giovani into the game, then only their game kicked up a notch. Nearing the end, Bent scored a consolation goal but it wasn't enough to catch Villa. We went on to win 2-1, and I was jumping with joy, though discreetly. I do not want to risk getting beaten to a pulp by an angry Spurs mob, so I kept a straight face until we were safely out of White Hart Lane =P

The experience was super, the atmosphere was electric and my EPL cherry-popping could not have been any sweeter. It might not be at Villa Park, but I take whatever I can for now. Thanks Nigel and Ashley for making it a night to remember. Clarets and blues forever, up the Villa!!!

life4hire: spurs showed some flashes of brilliance, especially through giovani and aaron lennon. tp villa's defence was superb lah.

kidd: my view was like the 3rd picture actually, yg stadium view tuh guna 18mm, nampak cam jauh. near enough to see the players' facial expressions lah sebenarnye

Should go for the VIP ticket whereby you would get three meals; before the game, during halftime break, and when the game is over!That would be the ultimate experience!...

The Banker said...

distant observer: that would be the ultimate, furthermore if its at villa park. but alas, money is still an issue. perhaps when i'm making more than enough, i can afford to indulge in such delights! i take it u've enjoyed this experience before?
