Excellent.  But still think that the hippo needs to be holding an umbrella.  And the mangled hoola hoop.

Maybe juggling fireworks and knives?

There definitely has to be claret behind the lion, because with blue there is no definition.

The lion isn't rare enough for us to go down the wordless route. We should have our name on any crest/badge - we can't rely on the uniqueness of a liver bird (Liverpool), a cannon (Arsenal) or a cock (we all know who I mean).

It's a choice between the name and the round badge imo. Too many clubs do both and we'll just end up with a copy of what Chelsea have.

I think nameless crests are the future. Going by what the site said about modernisation and design standing out, it would be the right way to go I think.

Napoli do it and their crest is definitely one of the most distinctive. Juventus as well.

Their badges are rubbish. A lion is too generic to not have the writing, people wouldn't know what team it is. Blue background, claret lion, "ASTON VILLA" written on it. We have the best colours and the best name, show them off.

Agreed. I'm not criticising anybody's work or ideas, there have been some brilliant contributions on this thread.

But I do feel like our uniqueness (our 'USP' in wank talk) is our name. We should never presume that other people know our history like we do.

A lion is not unique. Claret & blue is not unique.

Our name is.

Absolutely agree with CD and Rory on this.

Yellow on a light blue has to be avoided for any future crests. Its so wrong. A claret lion on a blue background is what is has to be.

If our name is to be included and we don't want a Chelsea clone then it has to go on a scroll underneath imo.

It will only look like a Chelsea badge to people who are unable to read the words "ASTON VILLA". A badge without said words would look much more like a Chelsea/Millwall/Scotland or whoever badge.

Using the earlier design with yellow/ gold lion and the name included:

That badge doesn't look right. It's supposed to be a maroon coloured heart.

Well that's just not true. So many clubs have similar badges.

None of them look like a Villa badge, none of them have "ASTON VILLA" written on them.

Also, please do not post content from that club without warning. I have just firebombed an apiary in a rage.
