I can’t help feeling a bit down with the Aston Villa saga – future seems very bleak!!! Thank goodness for the World Cup to divert my attention!!

Just saw a picture of Keane announcing his retirement with a Celtic top on – I noticed the star above the Celtic badge and it reminded my of the star above the Three Lions on the England shirt. Obviously this represents the European Cup and World Cup wins. I know many other teams do the same

I just feel that 25 years on from our European Cup win it would be nice to have the star above the Villa crest on our shirts. Might help me think of better times!!!

Just seems that it would be a fitting tribute and remind people that we ARE a big club and, if it wasn’t for certain people, we would still be!!

  • of course we should have the star and name the old witton lane stand the dennis mortimer stand..

  • Agree with south coast villain on that one. Naming it The Doug Ellis Stand was a slap in the face to all the great men who have been associated with the club over the years, men with claret and blue blood running through their veins, men so much more dese

  • Im not fussed about the star to be honest, when I see the star over the England crest I always think “hanging on to past glories”… I’m of the opinion that you should only have a star over your crest if you are the defending champions. But thats just my
