Full details on becoming a My Old Man Said Member



Join the My Old Man Said Membership Club and get access to Match Club (the MOMS private members community) and access to an exclusive Members-only My Old Man Said podcast channel (including ad-free versions, extra shows and access to a back catalogue of 185+ bonus shows), merchandise discount and the inside track on supporter issues and Villa-related opportunities.

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

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 joining our MOMS Membership club, we can solely focus on giving you smarter quality podcasts and writing.

We respect our readers and listeners, and we’ll love you even more, if you join our MOMS Members Club.

  • Match Club Membership

Without wanting to break the first two rules of Match Club (see below), Match Club originally was born as MOMS’ antidote to putting life and fun into lockdown and behind-closed-doors football. Since then, it has grown into a great international community that keeps each other informed and entertained 24/7. It also invented the notion of going ‘full goldfish’, before Ted Lasso bought into the goldfish state of mind.

Also, there’s clubs within Match Club, including Screen Club where members can discuss what they’re watching and Investo Club, where members share investment knowledge and insights, and for the gamers, there’s Game Club. There’s also a reading room that collates the actual good articles on Villa matters.

Plus, Match Club does meet up in the real world too.

“Match Club is genius. Definitely enhanced my usual ‘match day’ from home experience. Good people, good vibes, good discussions! “

“Brilliant idea! Match club great much better than Twitter hysteria.”

“MOMS Match Club has been a success, much better innovation than VAR”

  • Unique Opportunities

MOMS likes to look out for it members, who support us. In the past, MOMS has put forward members for an expenses-paid Villa away day, paid appearances in Premier League adverts, a kit launch where a MOMS member got to play with ex-Villa players and pick up a free new kit (boots included!), and a tour of Bodymoor Heath to watch Villa’s first team train. Plus, there’s been plenty of competitions and freebies (including drinks) given out along the way.

  • Big Love

You also get our love and appreciation for being part of the MOMS membership community, and the knowledge that your contribution will help us grow, so you get more in the long-term.


If you want to get full access to Match Club, ad-free podcasts and inner circle heads-ups to MOMS opportunities, it costs just £5 + VAT tier – there’s no VAT to pay if you are outside the EU.

That’s around the cost of a pint.

The list of local currencies that you can pay in is rapidly growing – including UKP, EUR, USD, CAD, AUD, NZD, NOK, SEK, HKD and more!
