Villa Till I Die

Aston Villa supporters know that with every game comes yet another opportunity to find ourselves shouting till we go hoarse for our team and wearing nothing but our sacred claret and blue. We demand loyalty with the belief that we will win… well sometimes and are bound together by our colours.
