There could be many reasons an Aston Villa supporter isn’t making the trip to the Bescot Stadium this evening to join the 4,000 or so travelling fans. Maybe you’re one of Villa’s new fans from Egypt, who didn’t have chance to book a flight in time? Maybe instead of attending any of the pre-season games, you’re preferring to coil like a spring, ready to burst into life at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, when the season kicks off proper?
Whatever the reason, fear not, the club are streaming the annual Walsall vs Aston Villa friendly live via their YouTube channel (watch below).
The Youtube live stream will also be very useful if you’re actually at the game, but have ended up in one of those seats at the Bescot situated directly behind a concentrate pillar (we’ve all been there).
Lets hope we see our first Wesley goal tonight.
Kick-off is 7.45pm
