You can hate the Baggies, you can hate the Blues, you can hate the Wolves; as Villa supporters that is expected of you but you are required to love ...

Players in England first officially wore numbers on their shirts for the 1933 FA Cup Final between Everton and Manchester City. The Merseysiders’ players wore shirts numbered 1–11 and, strange as it will seem to us who remember football before it was...

The commentators in the national media mostly seem to think we will go down this season, but they have their noses rammed so far up the backsides of the top six that it is difficult to respect their judgement. The bookies aren’t very optimistic eithe...

The big news since last season is that we have kept Jack, at least for the time being. Both he and the club have said the right things about the contract and, as no-one else has put their money where The Sun’s mouth was, we get to keep him. My worst ...

Late on Friday evening 3rd September 1955, Eric Houghton pulled off what many at the time regarded as the transfer of the decade when he persuaded Dave Hickson to transfer allegiance from Everton to Villa for £17,500. The team was already ensconced i...

The non-selection of Jack Grealish for yet another England squad at a time when he was widely expected to be called up allows me to return to a favourite topic of Villa's international players, or in some cases, players overlooked consistently and un...

Well, we somehow got over the line and Smithy has stayed at the helm. At least for the time being. On balance I think that retaining him is a fair outcome. Without a European address we were not going to attract a big name continental tourist, we cer...

The long list of those who have appeared in the first team colours includes many who only made it once. There are mostly from the days before we had a manager, because these days every player is likely to be given a second chance as no manager likes ...
