About Us

Well here's who is responsible

THE WEBSITE & FORUM
Now in it's 21st year, the website and forum have been running since 31st March 1997, is the longest running Villa website in the world. Mac McColgan started it all, and is our long suffering and often abused member of the Admin team, it's amazing the amount of flak one individual had to take because of the childish antics of a few "keyboard warriors". Email him if you have a question but please note he doesn't have any spare tickets. Besides there's always a few thousand empty seats at Villa Park anyway.

WebMaster & Forum Admin
Special thanks must also go to Martin & Steve Morris, who provided invaluable assistance and support in the hosting and running of H&V on the net at a time which without them it could have died.  Steve has since moved on up in the corporate world, whereas we have managed to sucker Martin into staying around. We're expecting to hear news of Martin's wife seeking a divorce any day now, believing him to have a mistress, such is the time he devotes to keeping the website, forum and server up and running.

Moderators
All of the Heroes and Villains discussion areas wouldn't function without the considerable assistance of  Joe_c, Ozzjim, Legion, Lizz, PeterWithesShin, Pauliewalnuts, Dave, Ger Regan, and Dave W. Thanks to you all we owe you big time.

THE FANZINE
Heroes & Villains is the best selling unofficial fanzine of the most beautifully named football team in the world. It is written by supporters, for supporters and is not afraid to say what it thinks. The publication has now reached it's 27th year and following a successful year providing the fanzine in digital form as well as in print, from the 2014/2015 season will (with the possible exception of a couple of specials) by available in digital format only, this allows for more frequent and up to date issues. A big thank you is not enough for all the sellers who gave their time on match days, you will all be missed.

The Editor
Dave Woodhall. Suave, handsome, talented, wealthy. Dave is an editor of many words, and most are concerned with driving contributors to the point of exhaustion in an effort to get just one more page out of them before deadline. He has few regrets in life, but one of them is not twatting Eric Hall on Central Weekend.
 
Fanzine Regular Contributors
Peter Tarrant, John Russell, Dave Campbell, Richard Gill, Dave Collett, Frank Pattison, Stuart Griffin, Colin Brown, Simon Page, Richard Keeling, Jon Follows, Andy Wainwright, Robin Wilkes and Stacy Murphy

Villa Blogs
As well as looking after the website, forum, server etc. Martin has now been landed with the task of revitalising blogfootball.com (if he ever finds the time).

and last, but by no means least....

Walter Price, William Scattergood, Jack Hughes and Frederick Matthews. If you don't know who they are, then shame on you! For it was they, under the dim glow of a Victorian street light in 1874 who formed Aston Villa FC, without whom none of this would be possible and, despite the fact that we might not always agree with everything they say and do, remain the most unique, wonderful football club in the world.
