Extreme Measures Taken Getting To A Game

Extreme Measures Taken Getting To A Game

A contact of Vital Football's is looking for fans with interesting stories. Claire Snook explained...

'I'm looking for football fans who have taken extreme measures to get to a football game and was wondering if you knew anyone with an interesting story? It's for a case study for the national press.'

If you have anything, contact: claire.snook@insidemedia.uk.com and feel free to post in the article comments or forum if you have any interesting stories!

Jonathan Fear, an Aston Villa fan gave us his own experience.

'Mine was going to the Blackburn New Year game just a few days before going for a life saving brain op. It was just weird. I went against doctors orders but just had it in my mind, especially as it wasn't unreasonable to think it might have been my last trip to Villa - or anywhere for that matter! - that it had to be done. Awful game if memory serves me right but I survived the game and the brain op... happy days, didn't get down to Villa Park for nearly two years after the op apart from a day in a box that the club gave me (they brought the League Cup up Coca Cola in those days, and I had a photo taken by the late great Terry Weir), now that was tough!'

'Another is my mate who has been to every ground Villa have played and seen us win apart from Old Trafford. He's being going for 23 seasons, come home early from holidays, business, even got off a plane with suit cases and went straight to the game, all because it is his last hoodoo. Once he's seen us win there, I doubt he'll ever return!'
