TELL ME MORE…

Join the My Old Man Said inner circle and get exclusive Patron-only My Old Man Said podcast shows (including access to a  back catalogue of 75+ extra shows), free access to Match Club, merchandise discount and the inside track on supporter issues and Villa-related opportunities.

Become a MOMS Patron to get all that and help support truly independent Villa publishing that has your interest as a supporter at heart.

Due to the support of our readers and listeners we avoid the disrespectful football media model of content farming clickbait to drive ads. We don’t want a website that looks like a pinball machine of pop-up ads and auto-play videos. Nor do we want to do podcasts to serve product placement or get involved in disingenuous fan engagement.

For a small publisher like My Old Man Said, the business model of creating quality content and giving it away for free was never going to be a sustainable one. But with the support of our readers and listeners as MOMS Patrons, we can solely focus on giving you quality podcasts and writing.

We respect our readers and listeners, and we’ll love you even more, if you stand beside us as a My Old Man Said patron in these testing times (both of the Covid and potential relegation variety).

DOES THIS MEAN YOU’RE GOING BEHIND A PAYWALL?

No! Everything that we do already on My Old Man Said (MOMS) both website and podcasts remains free, as it always has been.

News articles that bring you the actual truth, podcasts, the blogs, the columns, discount heads-up’s and everything else – 100% free. But if you sign up to become a MOMS patron member on Patreon you get a bit more and the best benefit of all, access to Match Club.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The minimum cost is just £3 + VAT per month, but if you want to get access to extra content, podcasts, opportunities, Patron rewards and merchandise discounts, we recommend coming in at least the £5 + VAT – there’s no VAT to pay if you are outside the EU.

That’s around the cost of a pint. If you feel like you want to contribute less or more, then there’s plenty of options. It’s all good!

The good news is now you can pay in your local currency if it’s £, $ or Euros!
