About the authors


My name is Adam G and I am the main editor on this blog. I am responsible for editing and posting any article submissions sent to this site. Living in Canberra, Australia I became a fan of the club after reading an interesting article about the new signings of John Carew and Ashley Young. After being intrigued about Aston Villa’s history and it’s potential for success I became a full-time Aston Villa fan in the winter of 2007 making me a fan of the club for over 8 years. I’ve previously written articles for Avillafan.com and submitted frequent articles to the Vital Villa site.

Having lived in over 4 countries I am currently 19 years of age and I can be contacted through this email address:



Hi all, my name is Ooahpaulmcgrath and I am a joint owner of the site along with Badger123.

I started watching Villa in the early 70′s in the old third division, in the days of Andy Lochhead and “Chico” Hamilton. My favourite era at Villa was in the days of Sir Ron Saunders.

The Villa team he built with a forward line of Gray, Little and Graydon was superb and played arguably the best football ever seen at VP, including a 5-1 hammering of the then mighty Liverpool in the 76-77 season.

I followed Villa home and away through the 70′s and 80′s and the highlight of course was that night in Rotterdam. I still go to as many games as possible but due to a change in personal circumstances, I do not go to as many games as I used to.

Blog co-owner who has lived in or around Erdington, Birmingham for all my life, which is 50(ish) years. Of course, I’ve been a Villa supporter ever since I can remember and my very first game was against Bournemouth when we were in the third division as it was then. That was it, I was instantly hooked.

When I was younger, I travelled all over the country following the Villa, but these days, as a self employed Tradesman whose work takes me all over the country, I very rarely get chance to go. My love for the club remains just as strong though and it’s near enough the first thing I think about every day.
I know, it’s corny.
But true.

23 Year old Aston Villa fan born and still living in Birmingham. I work in the Film and TV industry which keeps me working hard and long hours, so I take great pleasure in those moments when the Villa play and even more so when we win! I will write as much as I can for this site and hopefully you may not agree with the content, but appreciate and like the articles.

If anybody wishes to contact me, they can do so at jamieslaughter@astonvillanewsandviews.co.uk
