Shield
Star
Aston Villa
Lion - two heads

Circular badge within a shield, two headed lion and 1874 made out of miniature stars.

Bunce for the designer and the stocks for Heck.

Everyone's a winner, petit dejeuner.

Nevís not best pleased

Dead right. Our opinion didn't count when this ****** walked in and decided he didn't like what he saw, why would it now?

They can do what they like but I don't appreciate being patronised, treated with contempt and lied to.

Nev and I don't tend to agree on much, but I can totally understand his ire on this occasion.

By the sound of thingsÖ

Shield
Star
Aston Villa
Lion - two heads

And in claret and blue.

Like the idea of having 1874, as we are the oldest big club.

No mention of incorporating the Reverser. I put that CAPITALS as well.

When I first read the email, the comment that struck me as slightly worrying was: "60% believe that whilst the new crest should be claret and blue, it should also be visually striking and recognisable". This has a slight question over the use of claret and blue, which would be a travesty is they started fucking around with the colours.

It was a fait accompli before the survey was sent out.  Same as the TV was. 

Shield, Lion Facing Left, Club name, 1874, star.

Tbh other than the star I'm ok with it.  But they do take us for mugs.

The passionate hatred I have for the star inside the badge is at irrational levels but I just cannot get my head around wanting it inside the badge. I don't understand it, have it above like so many teams do if you want it. It will always look shit inside the badge, always. Redesign when we win it again? It's just daft.

I think it's quite clear what the club favour, so we're probably going to end up with something like this I would have thought:

I don't mind that design, but I don't see how you put Aston Villa and 1874 on it without it just looking overcrowded and messy.
