Since they bought the club just over two years ago, Messrs Sawiris and Edens have spent around £250 million on Aston Villa and all that extravagance seems to be paying dividends. The Leeds result was a real downer and perhaps an experience that we ca...

The start of the season's been great. We're playing well, scoring regularly, the defence is unrecognisable from last season's shambles and...

There’s an old saying, Once bitten, twice shy. Clearly Alex McLeish had never heard of such nonsense before taking hold of the reins at Villa Park in 2011. In his previous managerial post, the man soon to be referred to as The Scottish Manager ...

Every Crystal Palace fan there ever was owes a debt of gratitude to Aston Villa.

The origins of their club go back to a handful of youths who ahead of attending the 1905 FA Cup final at the Crystal Palace between Villa and Newcastle United...
