John Terry Signs

The first new signing is confirmed and it is making a lot of noise in the press. At AVST, we cannot remember the last time we got so bombarded with members views about a new player. People will have their own views on John Terry as an individual and rightly so. Seen purely through a footballing prism though, he might be just what we need. For too long there has been a stench around the club. Where defeat doesnt seem to hurt the players in…

Club Crest – To Change Or Not To Change?

The current Villa badge was introduced during Randy Lerner’s tenure as owner of the club. Is it an appropriate crest for the club moving forward under a new (and hopefully more successful) regime? Should it be changed as part of the total overhaul of a club that was fading fast under the old ownership? If so, should we revert back to the old round style of badge that adorned the shirts of League and European Cup winning heroes? The AVST would love to know your views…

Ugo Ehiogu

It is with tremendous sadness that AVST received the shock news of the sudden passing of Ugo Ehiogu.

He was a huge man, both in character and physical stature. Someone who always gave 100%. He had an illustrious career with Villa, playing over 250 games for the club, and was part of…
