It’ll look like Magical Mystery Tour in a few years.

It'll look less like Arcturus and more like the Plough.

Do we get the proper star outside the top of the crest when we play in Europe?

Or is that only if we play in the Champions League?

Well our small time core of fans chose to have one inside the badge so we won't have one outside the crest as is the norm because then that would mean we have two stars on the shirt to mark one trophy win. It's the sort of thing I'd hammer other clubs for.

If memory serves me right, when the crest was being designed by Randy Lerner in MS Paint, it was mentioned by that Krulak chap that we weren't allowed to have a star outside the badge on the say so of the Premier League. The fact that Man City had about 15 for fuck all reason at that point must have escaped their notice.

I wouldn't go that far, but I certainly don't care that it's there.

Me neither. I care about the team in the kit not the kit or badge itself. If we play well, win games and trophies then they can make the badge a hippo for all I care.

TV are you saying you have never slagged off the Lerner badge in however many years it's been there?

I don’t think I slagged it off. I don’t know that I liked it much. The badge topic just doesn’t fire me up as it does others. But each to their own.

So to sum up: some don't like the star, some like the star, and some aren't bothered either way.

You couldn't make it up eh?

You seem to have put your finger on it.

The claret's still too pink, though.

I agree with him.

But only because he’s bullied me into it.

If we did win the CL though, what would happen? The lion playing with a constellation?

I think the lion will look like it's had a blow to the head in a few years.

When we win our next couple of CL trophies, we could keep just the one star if we really have to show we've won it.

Or better yet, dump all the stars, everyone knows who we are and what we are about. The name Aston Villa is enough.

If you have to look at the badge to work out what we've achieved, you probably won't even know what the bloody star means anyway.
