Villa Noise: Movember, Vlaar-2-D-2 and Weimanns Are Forever

It's been a fun couple of weeks on Twitter for followers of @AVFCOfficial.

Each Friday we have #VillaFilmFriday, asking supporters to give a certain movie the claret and blue makeover.

It's been a couple of massive franchises over the past few weeks, with James Bond and Star Wars the topics for thought.

There have been some really class entries from fans all over the world.

So let's see what happened in a claret and blue galaxy Vlaar, Vlaar away:

















Star Wars




Dr Jo







Villa male fans, staff and players are all going tash-tastic this month as part of Movember.

Movember is a charity dedicated to promoting men's health and fighting prostate cancer.

Gents are encouraged to grow Mo's to be walking billboards to raise awareness.

Several employees and fans are taking part by joining the official Movember team: MoGregor's.

If you're growing a mighty moustache, join the group.

There'll be several players taking part. Watch out for images of those in the coming weeks.

Check out these great pictures of icons from past, complete with their loveable lip warmers, including the famous Villa Villan!

There's also a montage of fan James Moynihan, who took photos of himself with moustache in various kits down the years.

Villa Villan

























As you can see, Derek Mountfield is one of the men with the mighty moustache look, which he sported throughout his time with Villa.

Mountfield is 50 today - and there's every chance he will be having a round of golf this weekend.

But Derek certainly won't be inviting Rob Bishop to join him - even though he's considerably more adept at the game than the Vila News & Record editor.

In 1988, during the club's pre-season trip to Scotland, the duo engaged in a couple of rounds of pitch-and-putt at the Erskine Bridge hotel on the banks of the River Clyde.

And despite Derek's greater ability, Bish emerged as the victor of both occasions.

As they completed the second round, an exasperated Mountfield muttered: "I don't get it. You're crap - but you keep beating me!"

AVTV have called on a host of special guests for their pre-match show these past few weeks.

First there was Dan Greaves, who won silver in Sydney 2000, gold in Athens 2004, bronze in Beijing 2008 and silver in London 2012.

The 30-year-old discus thrower is also a huge claret and blue fanatic with a season ticket in the famous Holte End.

Dan joined presenter Jack Woodward to preview the Craven Cottage clash on our online television channel.

Then there was Gary Nock, who was the star guest on the preview programme ahead of Sunderland.

Villa fan Gary is well-known as the magic musician behind 'Make It Better' - the beautifully-catchy tune that featured extensively on television on a popular Mars advert.

He even rewrote the lyrics to the song and created 'Oh to be a Villan' - take a listen below.

Next up on the Ron Atkinson!

Big Ron will join us ahead of the clash between his two former teams - Villa and Man Utd.

You'll get expert opinion from the charismatic manager as he chews the fat on the big game.

There's a fun competition currently running with FIAT.

It's the chance to win a mascot place for the Arsenal game and hospitality at the game.

All you need to do is work out who the mystery Villa player is in the video below and then enter the competition.

Brian Little is the latest star name to be a website Cult Hero.

Fans can get questions in for the former boss and player via Twitter using the #AskLittle hashtag.

The best teasers will be put to the man who walks on water and his answers will appear on in two weeks time.

It's not like Jack Woodward to get flustered post-match but he was a bit tongue-tied at the County Ground.

Chatting to Paul Lambert about the win over Swindon and the upcoming clash with Sunderland, Woodward made the mistake of making up a team - Swinderland.

Lambert saw the funny side, saying: "I think we'll beat them when they get promoted from wherever they are!"
