Birmingham Named Best City to Visit in the UK

Birmingham has been given the award of Best UK City to Visit by readers of Group Leisure Magazine, beating off stiff competition from York, Liverpool and London. The award was presented at a prestigious ceremony held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

Over the last 6 years, Birmingham has seen an 11% rise in visitors and a continued sense of regeneration throughout the city. Visitors flock to see some of Birmingham’s main attractions including the NEC, Symphony Hall, the new Central Library and the Bullring Shopping Centre. Christmas is a particularly busy time for the city as the Frankfurt Christmas Market brings extra visitors to the area, as well as the lure of the Bullring for Christmas shopping.

Rob Yandell, the managing editor of Group Leisure, commented that ‘the city is delivering a first class experience’, further indicating the support for the Birmingham tourist industry. Birmingham is a vibrant and thriving city which is going from strength to strength, and Chameleon Web Services are pleased to be a part of this.

Arsenal 1 – 3 Aston Villa Saturday 17 August 2013

Aston Villa stun Arsenal to come from behind and win at the Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the season

The start of the season for 2013 / 2014 kicked off this weekend and looking on paper our club Aston Villa had a hard starting point with Arsenal to play first on the 17th August 2013 and then the second game Chelsea on Wednesday 21st August 2013 and to finish things off the third game being Liverpool on Saturday 24th August 2013.

After a horrible season last year the Aston Villa fans needed to see something different and after 6 minutes Giroud put Arsenal in front and the Villa defence looked a mess.

But this goal was the turning point and the Villa team pulled together and Agbonlahor was on fire causing problems everywhere having his best game ever. This soon led to a penalty which Benteke took and was saved by Szczesny but Benteke headed it in for a goal and the Emirates Stadium came to life but this time it was the Villa fans chanting.

At half time the score was 1 – 1 and Aston Villa looked to be on top of the game. The Birmingham based team was showing the London rivals that they are capable of winning the game.

The second half was fantastic and Benteke scores another penalty at 61 minutes following Agbonlahor causing terror to the Arsenal defence.

The Villa continued to attack and attack and then Luna scored an amazing goal for a defender one on one with Szczesny at 85 minutes sealing the game and giving Villa 3 points well deserved.

Wenger apologised to Arsenal fans but we think that Paul Lamberts Villa boys was too strong for the Arsenal defence.

Christian Benteke scored twice and Antonio Luna added a third as Aston Villa
came from behind to stun Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on the opening day.

  • Giroud 6′
  • Benteke 22′, 61′ (pen)
  • Luna 85′
