Fascinating in-depth Benteke exclusive in the Villa News & Record

Christian Benteke is the name on the lips of all supporters at the moment - and you can read all about him in the latest issue of the Villa News & Record.

The programme for the Manchester United game includes an extensive, in-depth interview with the Belgium international talking at length about a whole range of topics.

He describes the incredible feeling he gets when he scores - and why he once had to produce his ID card before playing for a junior team.

It's a real insight into what makes the new Villa hero tick - and we have also landed an exclusive with football's Mr Unique.

Stan Crowther holds the distinction of being the only player in the game's history to have been allowed to play in the FA Cup after being cup-tied with another club.

Crowther, a Cup-winner with Villa in 1957, was back at Wembley in 1958 - after being given special dispensation to play for Manchester United in the competition in the wake of the Munich disaster.

Then there are regular columns with manager Paul Lambert, skipper Ron Vlaar - who also appears on the cover - and former Villa star Stan Collymore.

The Villa Vaults section in this issue turns the spotlight on the 1996-97 campaign as well as looking back at previous games against United, including the 1994 League Cup final.

And if all of that isn't enough, anyone buying a copy of the Manchester United issue can really cash in.

As a special promotion, we are including a voucher which will entitle supporters to a whopping £10 off a home or away replica shirt.

Better still, you don't have to cut out the voucher.

Simply take your programme along to our store at either Villa Park or New Street and you will be given the £10 discount on your shirt.

Be sure to make the Villa News & Record part of your matchday experience - and why not pick up one of our popular programme bags, which include the current issue plus three back issues for games against United - all for a fiver.

Poster books will also be on sale at the kiosks at £3, while we are also offering a bumper package of a programme bag and a poster book for £7.
