This season though, the good times came back, and we appointed a manager who used to be a fan when he was a kid, kept hold of our best player, another Villa fan Jack Grealish, and managed to sneak promotion to the Premier League.
Fast forward a few months though, and we're almost bottom of the league, and a genuinely terrible team. I went down to see them at the weekend with Sophie, and couldn't believe my eyes. Anyway, afterwards, I went on The Villa View (a popular youtube channel and podcast) to have a whinge on their Fan Cams. I pop up intermittently and manage to close the video with the phrase "squeaky bum time".
