It looked like it was going to be a gloomy summer for Villa fans just a few weeks ago with relegation looming. Still, a stunning end to the season where the team won 8 of a possible 12 points and a hard-fought point against West Ham on the final day of the season secured Villa’s place in the top flight for next season, and now the summer is looking much brighter.
So, how can a Villa fan enjoy the summer after what has been one of the strangest and most stressful seasons to date? Here are a few ideas.
Take Some Time Away From Football
Every Villa fan knows just how stressful football can be, and this season has undoubtedly been one of the most mentally draining seasons for a few different reasons. Having gone right down to the wire, everyone will have (rightfully) celebrated having survived the drop, but now it is understandable if fans want to take some time away from football.
Forgetting about football for a week or so can be a great way to unwind and enjoy other areas of life so that you can then start to get excited about the upcoming season.
Relive The Best Moments Of The Season
It might have been tense, but it was also one of Villa’s more memorable seasons with many highlights. Additionally, as the most extended PL season ever with a forced break, it is easy to forget what occurred at the beginning of the season, so you might find it helpful to go back through and to see what went right but also what when wrong.
Join Online Football Communities
The internet is a brilliant resource for football fans, and there are many excellent communities to join, which will allow you to engage with other die-hard fans. This will help you feel more connected to the sport, allows you to enjoy more content and the ability to discuss everything related to football and Aston Villa.
Online Casino Games
After you have taken some time to recover from such a dramatic season, you wouldn’t be a proper Aston Villa fan if you didn’t start missing the dramatic highs and lows of the football season. This can somewhat be replicated with casino games, and you can play slots online, which can be great fun and great way to get some excitement while there is no football to enjoy.
Follow The Latest Gossip & Rumours
The football may have stopped, but there will still be plenty to keep an eye on over the coming weeks in relation to gossip and rumours not only for Villa but for football as a whole. It will be interesting for Villa fans to look at the football odds next season and see how the squad will fare. Premier League survival is massive for Villa and could help them to attract a higher calibre of talent. Still, of course, there is uncertainty over star Jack Grealish’s future who could now stay that the team survived, but if he does end up leaving, he will command an enormous fee which could help the team to build.
Summer is now looking much brighter for Villa fans, and the above are a few ways that you could enjoy this period before the action kicks off again in August.
