Interesting.  I've signed up to input.  Not quite sure what I want now though.  The obvious answer is just go back to the 80's round badge, but I do like the idea of just a stand alone lion on the shirt.

I think going simpler could be great. Just a rampant lion would look smart. I hate over-complicated ones, like all them scroll things on Man Us. You donít need them.

I could warm to that idea.

Someone posted up a rather decent modern take on the round badge the other week - can't remember whom or where but I'd be keen on something like it.  No star, though.

Two sides to this...

The round badge is synonymous with our most successful period in living memory.

But - (controversial bit) it was only in use for less than 30 years of our almost 150 year history.

The current fashion for very minimalist crests, with Aston Villa forming part of it is where we'll end up I think.

Personally, I want the owner to just design it himself. Preferably using MS Paint.

If he could then tattoo it onto his body to show how much he cares, then we're all good.

Agree, a stand alone rampant lion would be brilliant

A simple design that is round, with a rampent Lion, and 'Aston Villa' rather than 'AVFC'.

Happy to knock something up by lunchtime and very reasonable on fees. UTV

Rampant lion, Aston above Villa below, all in 1 colour. Have the colour change to fit with the shirt colour.

If they want to put a star in it then that's fine but not placed so it's like a cat toy that the lion is pawing at.

We are a Scottish club, we should have a Lion Rampant not the overweight pussycat on the current badge. Make it claret as yellow is too insipid. Bring back round badge and make sure it actually says "ASTON VILLA" on it. Also don't bother putting "Prepared" on it as it is a crap motto and quite "Rangers"-y. Ta.

Also, in keeping with our Scottish heritage, only supporters of Scottish ancestry should be involved in the decision-making process. As Brexit proved, you can't trust English people on vital issues such as this.
