New Plans for Bonfire Night After Fabian Delph Moves to Manchester City

Share This Post

After the double U-turn by Fabian Delph in the space of week in signing for Manchester City, Aston Villa supporters were understandably furious by their captain’s judas move.

The club’s PR department’s Delph loyalty fanfare back in January only made the situation more incendiary. Literally it seems…

Within minutes of the former Villa captain being unveiled as a Manchester City player, while John Gregory was loading his rifle on Twitter, Villa were already burning their Delph Macron replica shirts…

But this was just the start of the Delph fire plans.

As it turns out Manchester City visit Villa Park on November 7th, two days after bonfire night. One fan has already got into the mood and plans are in motion for a ‘big fookin bonfire’ in honour of Delph.

The only problem I can see with this bonfire plan is judging by the above video clip, Macron Villa shirts seem to be extremely flammable and would burn in seconds. So, it’s best to take some pyro and fireworks along to prolong the night’s festivities.

Currently, the party planner is looking for a suitable location. Drop him a line on the facebook page above, if you have any stella ideas.

Inflatable snakes are already planned for the game, although that’s just the fun side of it, the police may need to call up army reinforcements for the rest. 🙂

Now, don’t ever mention the word ‘loyalty’ again. It’s officially dead in football, like the game’s soul.
