We did and still do have a special sound in aston - the roar of the crowd at Villa Park. My Grandfather, Bartholomew 'Bat' Garvey played for Villa from 1888-1893. He gets a mention in the history books.
I heard that sound from 1931 to 1940 when we left Brum after being bombed out in the November, I was 9 then.I'll write more later, but at present, I am deep in my family history! Keep up the good work
