  • Fear, time to pass this on to RL? get rid of the current badge and replace with a ‘proper’ one i.e the round badge 😉

  • like the repro 82 kit idea, but how about a competition to design a new Villa badge, new management, new owner, new badge, Jon have a word with your mate Randy, a season ticket to the winner with the proposed designs put up for a vote, just chucking it ou

  • I suppose, thinking about it a little more, that the round badge is associated with our hugely successful era.
