Went down the Villa this morning to pay my final respects to Sir Doug.  There wasn't that many there in the North stand car park maybe 2 or 3 hundred , The funeral  cortege came in through the Trinity road gates , past the Villa Village and stopped for 2 minutes behind the North stand where the slope is towards the turnstiles. Then most people walked behind the cars down witton lane to Aston Church , where for some reason dougs coffin stayed in the car for about half an hour before it was taken in. Then me and my mate Dave and Jarl a west brom fan from work went for a few pints in the Aston Social ,  I hadn't had anything to eat but was able to buy a sausage baggette in there for two quid.

 

Maybe i am a hypocrite , as its not that long ago i took part in an Ellis out protest march  , holding an Ellis out banner   from that very church up to Trinity Road
