Aston Villa’s recent history represented by @dril tweets

New, comments

More of the content that you crave

We are nearing the end of a long season - and that’s been the thing about Aston Villa, right? Just getting to the end of another long, eventful season. Nothing’s ever quiet at Aston Villa, we all know that. We all have our opinions on what has gone on at the Villa over the past ten or fifteen years, and now we’ve ‘found’ a way to sum it all up.

However, it would be false and unfair to claim this idea as our own. Superior blog, Cartilage Free Captain ran with this type of thing in the past (and even mentioned Villa!), So take a look at their version, the original, and share the love. And hey, if they didn’t want us to run with the idea then maybe they could ask Tottenham to stay away from our players?

What’s the idea?

Well - I’ll let them explain.

Have you heard the expression “There’s a @dril tweet for everything”? It’s true. @dril is the undisputed king of “weird Twitter,” an anonymous internet celebrity who posts brilliant nuggets of foul-mouthed, intentionally (?) misspelled, bizarre content. The tweets are perfect non-sequiturs that, his followers believe, you can apply to virtually any situation. - Cartilage Free Captain

So, here’s the thing - we dragged through the timeline of @dril and evaluated tweets alongside Villa’s recent history. Here’s what we came up with. @dril as Villa’s recent history, the little and the small.

I hope you enjoy, if anything else.
