Former Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin has taken a trip down memory lane this week and picked out his favourite match during his time with us at Villa Park.
Having come to Villa for a reported £5.75million back in November of 1998 from Coventry City, Dublin went on to make 149 starting appearances for us, a further 41 from the bench and he returned 59 goals.
‘That one sticks in my mind for all the right reasons”

Speaking to the PremierLeague.com Dublin laid out a few of his finer memories from his time at B6 for a new series of interviews they are doing to celebrate 10,000 Premier League matches, and he picked out a certain game against Arsenal as being his favourite.
‘Arsenal came to our patch, Villa Park, and basically took the mickey out of us. Every single one of us had a terrible first half. Beating Arsenal 3-2, after being two down, was a massive achievement. That one sticks in my mind for all the right reasons.’
Dublin helped himself to a brace in the comeback in December 1998.
