Giant Weimann pull-out poster in Sunderland match programme

Andreas Weimann has been one of Villa's undoubted success stories recently with his goals against Fulham and Stoke City.

The club's new goalscoring hero features on a giant pull-out poster in the latest edition of the Villa News & Record for Saturday's game against Sunderland.

Gary Gardner is poised to make a piece of club history if he plays against his brother Craig when Villa take on Sunderland - and you can read all about in the latest issue of the matchday programme.

The programme for the crucial game against the Black Cats includes an extensive, in-depth interview with the 19-year-old midfielder, who tells us all about his special relationship with Craig, how his family's football loyalties are divided - and how he feels about his amazing progress over the past few months.

Australian Chris Herd, meanwhile, chats about his first Villa goal and there's an offbeat question and answer session with Barry Bannan.

In the absence of skipper Stiliyan Petrov, acting captain Gabby Agbonlahor again takes us inside the dressing room, while regular columnist Stan Collymore pulls no punches in his views on THAT penalty for Manchester United against Villa last Sunday.

Then there are the thoughts of manager Alex McLeish, the lowdown on our visitors and their manager Martin O'Neill, and our latest look back at the European Cup triumph of 30 years ago.

Chico Hamilton is the latest My Favourite Villan - as seen through the eyes of his former team-mate Neil Rioch - and we also have puzzles for younger fans.

At £3, the Villa News & Record is great value.

And for even better value, why not pick up one of our programme bags, which are selling out at every game.

In addition to the current Villa v Sunderland issue, you also get three programmes from previous games against the Black Cats - all for just a fiver.
