Need Help Villa Autograph 96/97

20 posts in this topic

Hey Villains,

I need help from any villa fans out there who know their sigs.

I basically have a signed shirt from 1996-97. Lots of lovely sigs on there, Doug Ellis, Ian Taylor, Bosnich, Southgate, some greats on there.

However, there's one that is really peeing me off, I CANNOT work it out at all.

I thought at first Darius Vassell or Brian Little, but doesn't seem to match any on google etc. Plus I think it was before Mr Vassell.

SEE PIC BELOW - SORRY ABOUT THE RESOLUTION!!

I've nailed down everyone but this one. So if anyone could tell me who it is, I'd reward you with a great big villa kiss. (not really). If you could provide a link to some proof too, that would be exceptional.

Oh - One thing - I don't know how

Cheers guys.

Aaron

Hey Villains,

Don't worry, I won't mention Man Shitty....oops.

Anyhows, I need help from any villa fans out there who know their sigs.

I basically have a signed shirt from 1996-97. Lots of lovely sigs on there, Doug Ellis, Ian Taylor, Bosnich, Southgate, some greats on there.

However, there's one that is really peeing me off, I CANNOT work it out at all.

I thought at first Darius Vassell or Brian Little, but doesn't seem to match any on google etc. Plus I think it was before Mr Vassell.

(I've tried adding a link here to photobucket, but it keeps saying my album is private and won't seem to let me make it public, anyone know why????) Does anyone know how I could upload to photo to here (using "manage attachments" etc???)

I've nailed down everyone but this one. So if anyone could tell me who it is, I'd reward you with a great big villa kiss. (not really). If you could provide a link to some proof too, that would be exceptional.

It will be because of the way your are posting the link !! Do not shortcut link the album as it wont work. You need the image code.

It's not Joachim for 2 reasons:

1. He's already on the shirt.

2. His signature is easy to read.

Keep trying! :)

David Hughes? Purely because the first letter looks like a 'D'?

If I remember rightly he was a defender tipped of big things just like Ciaran Clark then was sold and dissapeared of the face of the planet.

I thought Dave Hughes myself, but can't find an example online for comparison.

e-mail Shrewsbury town and ask David Hughes if it is his autograph......he's youth team coach there....

Aaron Im fairly sure thats Darren Byfields signature.Try sending it to Walsall he was there until this season the club secretary could confirm if they have a copy.

Or try Jamelia he was married to her.
