Report (Aston Villa - Birmingham):

The matched I looked forward to the most was, of course, the Birmingham derby and since the match kicked-off at noon I had to take the first train possible from London Euston (8.36). There were Villa fans from USA and Iceland (!) next me on the train but none of them had been to Villa Park before! I arrived at Birmingham New street 10.45 and eventually found the train to Aston. Arrived about 35 minutes prior to kick-off and took some pictures of the (almost) empty stands. The match itself wasn´t the best in term of quality but the atmosphere, especially in the second half, was amazing. I have never experienced something like this ever and the Holte Enders can be very proud of their support to Villa. During the last 10-15 minutes everyone, even in the Doug Ellis Stand where I was, stood up and was singing/chanting towards the unfortunate Blues fans. When Birmingham equalised they looked the better side but the momentum all changed when young Cahill scored his wonder goal in the second half.

Report (Aston Villa - Leeds):

With the exception of last year I have been going to the UK around New Year every season since 2005/6. This time around I planned a trip with three games in 2016 and three in 2017. First up was Aston Villa v Leeds on Thursday evening. The game was booking history only but I still managed to get a ticket for what is without a doubt one of the biggest games this year in the Championship. My flight left Copenhagen at 08.30 and as I arrived in Birmingham the temperature was as low as -3 ºC. At home it was +5 ºC but with undersoil-heating at Villa Park there was no risk of a postponed game. My room was not yet ready and with the weather being cold but really nice with a crystal clear sky I decided to go to Villa Park for a few exterior pictures. Once at the ground I met up with German groundhopper Sven (from München) and we then had lunch together in the city centre. Sven had booked a stadium tour at Birmingham City in the afternoon but I was quite tired, my alarm had buzzed at 4am, and relaxed in my room instead.

Kick-off was at 19.45 and an hour or so before kick-off I was inside Villa Park. This was my fifth visit, a record in England, to the ground and having bought a ticket for the Holte End I have after tonight´s game seen a game from all four stands. In total 37 078, including 2 500 from Leeds, were inside Villa Park this evening. Former Malmö FF player Pontus Jansson scored a goal for Leeds in the 54th minute but for 80 minutes this was a poor game. The last 10-15 minutes were really entertaining though. Aston Villa equalized from the penalty spot in the 84th minute and it was then end to end stuff with several chances for both teams. The game ended 1-1 and after the game I met up with Sven and at 22.30 we could finally board a train taking us back to Birmingham New Street. Tomorrow we will both be at Rochdale vs Shrewsbury but before then I will have a good night's sleep!
