I don't like it inside the crest.

It looks like the lion is holding a sparkler.

It should be outside of the circle, centrally at the top of the crest.

Personally, I would say fuck the Premier League & put it on there anyway.

I have never heard of them whining about Nottingham Forest having their two above their crest on Premier League shirts.

Nor Man City for the 712 they had when they won fuck all before the dirty sports-washing money fell into their laps.

Surprised the website and app haven’t been updated yet; maybe there’s an official switch-over (possibly coinciding with the new kit and sponsorship reveal)?

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

In 26 years it'll look like the EU flag.

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.

Or make the badge a big fk off star with stars inside it

In nearly 150 years of history, there's a lot more to our club than one glorious night in Rotterdam.

It feels very small-time trying to tell anyone that will listen that we won the European Cup in '82.

If we must shoehorn a star into the badge, it should at least be in the outer circle and stop it from looking like someone's dangling a star on a bit of string in front of the lion, taunting him as though you would when playing with a cat.

Bright star
The vital addition of a white star may be a small change but its significance is huge – that star glows brightly in recognition of the finest hour in the club’s 133-year history.

No matter how young, the most essential part of any Villa supporter’s education is to be aware the club won the European Cup by beating Bayern Munich in Rotterdam on 26th May, 1982.

Now we have a permanent reminder of the occasion and a symbol of our future goal, playing Champions League football again.

From when the star was originally added. Thought it'd be interesting to read. Doesn't sound any less pathetic imo.

The famous lion also has a different look. Gone is the fragmented image seen on previous Villa badges. The lion is now proud, looking to the future and unified – signalling our desire for togetherness.
I thought the lion had been switched to facing right so that it was looking to the future. Really wish the future would just stay where it's put, this is going to the up being embarrassing if the future moves back over to the left again.

Hercules confuses me. Why do we only ever see Bella at the Holte? Is he napping after a morning of turning from left to right then back again?

I dread to think what sort of blue-sky thinking corporate nonsense Josh and Hannah from Fluffy PR will come up with to describe the new one.

They'll just get ChatGPT to do it now Dave, Josh and Hannah have opened a street food kitchen in Stirchley instead.

Do we have a definite date yet when the badge swap will happen? I guess it will all be tied into the kit launch… but lots to do in/around the ground you’d suspect. Website and social meejah a lot easier…

Until a few years ago the round badge was still in existence on some of the carpets in the North Stand, so the Lerner badge might carry on existing in some form or other for a few years yet.

Things like the mosaics on the Holte End and the windows of the Holte Pub are two I can't see changing quickly.

I can see them staying. I could be completely wrong but I don’t remember badges being changed on the old Trinity Stand. The Holte looks fine as it is, the mosaics & glass were one of the things Lerner got right and I don’t even notice that the badge is rubbish there because the overall effect is so good.
