Alright Aston Villa. Win this one, at least. You apparently want to draw everything. But please. PLEASE. Please beat Newcastle. Because as I mentioned last week, I hate Newcastle United. I don’t know why, either. Last year when we started, I was very neutral about them. How can I hate a club that does so little?
But then their fans started chirping, and being annoying. And all this despite the fact that Newcastle were the only club who couldn’t beat Aston Villa in the Premier League. And then their fans blamed us for their team being miserable. And GOD I really dislike them now. What a heel turn.
So please, Villa. You can resume your general malaise in a few days. But today just beat these jerks from the North. Make their fans sad and angry. And God grant me the power to block and mute all of them on twitter after they get all riled up about what I’ve just typed.
