Online advertising makes sites look increasingly like pinball machines with flashing ads and auto-play videos. It's getting annoying, but many small publishers like My Old Man Said are dependent on it for the revenue it provides. The business model of creating content and giving it away for free though is not a particularly great one.

There is another way though, and that's support from our readers and listeners. If you enjoy what we do, and you'd like access to exclusive podcasts, articles and even bonus rewards, then sign up as an MOMS patron member.

Doing clickbait headlines to articles that begin with 'Villa fans took to Twitter...' is not a path MOMS wants to ever go down. Also, we don't want to bombard you with pop-ups, pop-unders, those auto-playing videos and pointless no-news 'churnalism'.

What we do is create great quality writing and podcasts and that's what we want to be able to focus on. Sometimes, it's crazy to think MOMS been doing this for over seven years, but it's because we love the Villa. We love our readers and listeners too, and we'll love you even more, if you stand beside us as a My Old Man Said patron. It's like you'll be a member of what we do.

Everything that already happens on My Old Man Said remains free, the same as it always has been, but if you sign up to become an MOMS patron member on Patreon you get a little bit more with some podcasts and writing that won't be available anywhere else but here. There's also exclusive reward draws for prizes, exclusive information updates, a newsletter and sometimes an opportunity that money can't buy.

We recommend you come in at the $5US level (that's barely the cost of a pint) to access the bonus podcasts, but it's all good whatever level you chose.



PATRON REWARD DRAWS

Once you have pledged a total of at least $5 (it could be five months at $1 for example), you will be automatically enrolled in free reward draws.

So far, lucky MOMS Patrons have received free rewards such as a copy of Playstation FIFA, Film Premiere tickets, several football-related books, DVDs, T-shirts, Under Armour sports kit, Classic Football Shirt credit, official Mitre Delta official EFL match balls (RRP £115), Mitre Star Wars goodies, art prints of Villa Park and Villa Store gift vouchers. 

Also, we've passed on unique opportunities to MOMS Patrons, such as playing with Stan Petrov at the Villa kit launch event at Bodymoor Heath (and taking home a free Villa kit & boots) and having a full away trip (tickets, food and travel) for two people reimbursed.
