I'm with skyclad... I think it was a decent nod to a great player.

Quite a grown up thing to do in fact.

Should fans submit requests to you in writing next time when considering what figures in the game they wish to respect?

I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that to bring a flag/banner into the ground it has to have a fire safety certificate with it.

Could that be where the problem arose?

I was just going to say the same. I've got a flag and every ground we take it before allowing it in the stewards want to know what's on it and for proof of the fire safety certificate.

Wake up to the situation.  The beef i have with Vila is they turn the tap on and off regarding WBA-Villa rivalry.  You are talking about the oldest derby in world football.

I get that we'll never mean as much as Small Heath.  However most Villans just completely contradict themselves.  Its a derby we dont want flags like that when Cyrille in the main was an Albion man.

Absolute load of claptrap

Im all for them repsecting one of our players who also played for them.....it was respectful what they had done not disrespectful!


The oldest derby in world football is sheffield fc v hallam

Fine but i will never change my own viewpoint.

We wil wait for February at Villa Park to see how partisan and hostile it is from about 38,000 Villa fans.  Remember though it's not really a derby according to them

Your comment about Sheffield-Hallam is just to try and prove a point.

Thanks for confirming mate, I was pretty sure I read it somewhere.

There will probably be about 29.000 villa fans and 3,000 of us like most other times they play us. They only get 38,000-40,000 Home fans when they play blues.

Some awful comments in this thread about what was a cracking banner and cracking idea from some villa fans

Wrong.  What will happen is Villa will win the majority of their games and gates will soar to the 40,000+ mark regularly.  I’d almost guarantee the crowd will be 42,000 for WBA.  They are a big club no doubt. 

Maybe the flag idea was to soften us up and potentially nullify a raucous home crowd, who knows?  What I do know is that Villans aren’t consist with their opinions/actions therefore I wouldn’t trust one when you’re solely talking football.

A well intentioned gesture, to try to turn it into anything else is pretty pathetic in my opinion
