Heroes and Villains

Archived since February 2013

54 issues

Heroes & Villains is the Aston Villa fanzine, first published in 1989. Since then it has provided a platform for Villa supporters to air their views, to praise, complain, campaign and reminisce. Its pages are open to anyone who wishes to contribute – there’s no editorial policy, just a desire to reflect the widest possible range of supporter beliefs. As we regularly say – forty thousand people watching the match is forty thousand different viewpoints and we want to show them all.

Ten issues are published throughout the season, each full of comment, opinion humour and the type of unashamedly biased insight you can only get from a lifetime spent watching the world’s most historic and infuriating football club. A year’s subscription will give you the best insight into supporting the Villa you could wish for - and if you want to add to the debate, even better.

Latest issue

Here we go again with all the usual stuff you’ve come to expect. There’s the story of the Aston Lower Grounds, Luc Nilis remembered, players who changed positions, what music should be played at Villa Park, dodgy penalties from years gone by and a lecture on how real fans should behave. Steve Bruce gets the odd mention as well, so head over to our place right this minute.
