Urgent News Re AGM

Steve Hollis, the new Chairman of Aston Villa Football Club, has expressed his desire to attend our AGM on Thursday.  The AVST Executive Board felt that we wanted to accept his request but this will require a small change to our intended running order.  Other engagements mean that Steve will need to depart at 8.00pm. To obtain maximum benefit from Steve’s time, we ask that we have a prompt start to the AGM at 7.00pm.  Steve and Tom Fox will join us at 7.15pm, and Tom will be…

In particular, he was keen to explain how our approach to transfers works and to give his side of how the fabled “Transfer Committee” actually operates.  As the meeting took…

Happy 6th birthday William!

It is 6 years today that the William McGregor statue was unveiled on 28th November 2009! The statue was an AVST initiative funded by the fans and the Club, and has become a focal point for fans to meet up on match days (including a superstitious foot rub) and often used by the Club in their marketing. So make sure you give me an extra foot rub today for good luck! Happy birthday William!

RemiGarde

Welcome to Aston Villa Rémi Garde

The AVST welcomes the news that our search for a new manager has been concluded with the appointment of Rémi Garde.  Whilst all managerial appointments are a gamble of sorts, this appointment looks forward thinking and his previous work fits well with the make-up of our current playing squad. After the events of recent weeks, it is now vital that everyone starts to pull in the same direction in order that we can quickly remedy our alarming position in the league table.  We trust that…
