Villa v West Brom programme: Holman on why he's the running man

Villa v West Brom programme: Holman on why he's the running man

When it comes to hard graft, Brett Holman has few peers - and he reveals what makes him tick in the latest issue of the Villa News & Record.

The official programme for the derby clash against West Bromwich Albion includes an in-depth exclusive interview with the Australian midfielder, who has really made an impact since his arrival from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar.

Holman talks about his work ethic, his attitude towards scoring goals - and why he didn't even hear the announcement that he had been voted man-of-the-match in our last home match against Swansea City.

Cover star Christian Benteke has also made a big impact, and we reveal why our new striker's debut day winner against the Swans gave him membership to an elite club.

Our Kidzone section, meanwhile, includes a quiz and fact file on Charles N'Zogbia , plus a centrefold photo of the French midfielder.

And as a bonus, there's also a giant pull-out poster of the 2012-13 Villa squad - a must for young fans to stick on their bedroom walls.

We also have Ron Vlaar's first captain's column, plus regular contributions by manager Paul Lambert and straight-speaking Stan Collymore, while our celebration of the Premier League's 20th anniversary looks back to the 1994-95 campaign.

Premier Memories is just part of our new-look Villa Vault section, which provides a fascinating trip down Memory Lane.
