We're back with another blog post to share another video. We've uploaded plenty of videos recently be sure to check those out too.
For now though, Dan Bardell and Matt Lynch are in competition! They go head to head in the first of a 5 part quiz series. The two guys picked a specialist subject each, in this video they answer questions about the 2007-2008 season, and the John Gregory Era. Check out who won, in the video below.
This is an ongoing blog which will look at each area of Aston Villa’s squad of players that are contracted to the club at the end of the 2016 season. The first post will go through all the Goalkeepers at the club, looking at whether the club should attempt to keep them on, or try to offload them out of the club. After a season of failure, following years of near misses, it is easy to suggest that the entire squad should be ripped up, so the aim is to look objectively at every player.

Dan Bardell gives his 3 reasons as to why Jack Grealish should stay at Aston Villa. Surely winning promotion (fingers crossed) would mean more to him than mid table mediocrity with a Stoke City, for example.
Agree with Dan? Leave a comment below.

Welcome to The Villa View, we're a YouTube channel for Villa fans, created by the fans. We're keen to give you a voice, so get involved with our videos today!
Our content ranges from 'Fan Cams' to 'Match Day Experiences' to 'Discussion Shows', even though the season has finished that doesn't mean we've stopped making videos until August.
When matches are over we head to Villa Park to speak to the fans, you'll have a few minutes to chat to us to give your uncensored opinion on a ch
No sooner had we packed our bags and headed off on our Bert & Ernie-style summer holiday together than the one piece of news we'd been waiting for came to pass. Just days after the end of Aston Villa's dismal relegation season in the Premier League, it was announced that the club was to be taken over by Dr Tony Xia's Recon Group, a Chinese investment vehicle with big intentions. Of course, Villa being Villa the whole thing's gone a little murky since then. Questions over Xia's wealth, means
And with that, it was all over. 38 games done, the last of them a limp 4-0 loss at the hands of Arsenal, and Aston Villa are essentially now a Championship club. In the last show of the season Chris and Steve revisit the supporter questions asked in The Independent over the weekend, which Chris provided answers for; now it's Steve's turn. There's also our annual review of Villa's players. Over the years we've tended to give each one a grade but this year we haven't bothered because, well...F. N
After what feels like an eternity it's almost over. Aston Villa's drawn-out relegation is one match away from being in the past. It's been a difficult season for everyone concerned except, apparently, for some of the players responsible in large part for making it happen, but it'll soon be behind us all. Next week's visit to Arsenal will end the misery and who knows what the future will bring? In this week's show Chris and Steve have a quick chat about the weekend's goalless draw against Newcas
Newcastle are the only team to have not beaten us in the league this season. As a result they look likely to join us in our journey to the league below next season. It was at Villa Park that their relegation fate was decided 7 years ago and their fate was all but sealed yesterday when they failed to claim the three points they had expected to leave with. A win for their neighbours Sunderland who are at home to Everton on Wednesday will seal their fate and will see them along with Norwich visitin
It hasn't been an easy week to be an Aston Villa supporter. Since last we spoke, Villa have had their relegation from the Premier League mathematically confirmed, lost two matches and put supporters through one of the worst weeks of recent decades. From Randy Lerner's latest bout of nonsense to the double-resignation from the board that presumably triggered it, it's been a trying few days. The players are doing their level best to compound the misery. Gabriel Agbonlahor is suspended - again - a
A rare two goals at home still produced “nul points” for us because we have a defence that is as watertight as was The Titanic.
If this was the performance of a team with the weight taken off their shoulders it was not markedly different from the performances they produced before relegation (which our “custodian” deemed inevitable after only 5 league games) became a mathematical certainty last weekend.
Southampton scored four and could have had a couple more if the woodwork had not de
It might not be official but it's really really real for the first time. By losing to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday - their eighth consecutive defeat - Aston Villa condemned themselves to relegation from the Premier League into the Football League Championship. With sloppy goals conceded by a badly selected, incapable and gutless Villa line-up, the Bournemouth game was a fine summary of the season as a whole. Norwich City's failure to take anything away from Crystal Palace means that Villa are, t
We had an opportunity to do the double over a team yesterday, to get a fourth league win this season, to end a losing run that threatens to give us another unwanted club record and to delay our inevitable relegation by getting a better result than Norwich were able to manage. We failed to do any of those things.
The game had the look of an end of season match throughout with neither team looking like they had anything left to play for this season. We have admittedly played that way for most
Aston Villa's heavy home defeat by Chelsea on Saturday leaves them, presumably, one week away from relegation. Like, actual real confirmed 'R' relegation. And yet the nature of the loss was so familiar that it leaves us with very little new to say. Alan Hutton was sent off. Villa can't defend or attack, and they're going down. World keeps turning. Still, there's plenty going on elsewhere. Alleged striker Gabriel Agbonlahor is under investigation by the club and out of action in the meantime, an
Another game gave us another passionless, sad, embarrassing capitulation that has brought us a game nearer to our inevitable relegation.
This is the second time we have managed 7 consecutive defeats this season and it was our 22nd league defeat from our 32 games to date. The “Proud History, What future?” signs were there for all to see at Villa Park yesterday and well done to all that took part in that protest!
We were half way through the first half before we went behind yesterday
Aston Villa's defeat to Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday took a familiar form but there's plenty going on at our listless club away from the weekly abomination on the field of play. Since Chris and Steve last sat down to talk about the overall direction of the club there have been several changes to get our teeth into. The club's board now includes Mervyn King, David Bernstein and one General Charles C. Krulak, and a recent announcement introduced the Football board. Bernstein and
Harry Kane will miss playing at Villa Park next season. He has now scored three goals in his two games at B6. His two goals either side of half-time did for us yesterday and left us having lost two thirds of the league games we have played so far this season.
Villa could still have had a slender chance of staying up had they played with the same sort of spirit that they showed particularly in the first half yesterday in some of our previous games and of course if our defence did not have m
Chris is out of action once more because of work commitments but Steve is on hand to take over hosting duties and check in on all things Aston Villa. Except the football. And the table. And the future. He's joined by an old friend of the show, Kirsten Schlewitz, who makes her AVR debut at almost the worst possible moment. Kirsten is a Villa-biased football journalists with many strings to her bow, from creating the Villa blog 7500 to Holte to the newly inaugurated crowd-funded project Unusual E
Last night Villa fans in their hundreds decided to get up, stand up on 74 minutes before exiting into the night. Our “custodian” obviously did not do so not least because he had as is usual not bothered to attend the game. No doubt as in the past his decision to stay away was influenced by his lack of interest in the club he once claimed to be the “custodian” of as well as by the likely welcome he would get and has so merited should he have done so.
Well done to those who organised, public
What contract does he have right now anyone know? He was another being looked at by a few in the Bundesliga I think and they all come circling when contracts are running down. Really like the look of JPB and is one id like to see us keep hold of and develop
