Villa v Stoke programme: Exclusive Weimann interview

It's been an amazing year for Andreas Weimann, who has made his first starting appearances for Villa and scored his first goals for the club.

But you might be surprised to learn that the young Austrian's superb strike against Stoke City on Easter Monday is NOT his favourite - even though it was voted Villa's goal of the season.

Andi reveals his personal favourite goal in an exclusive in-depth interview in the latest issue of the Villa News & Record, together with his reaction to being left out of the team at QPR.

The programme for this season's game against the Potters is also packed with lots more material to make it an essential part of your matchday experience.

When Paul Lambert was appointed Villa manager, for instance, he became the club's 16th boss to have also played AGAINST Villa, having lined up against us for St Mirren in a pre-season friendly in 1988.

We wonder how many of the others you can name? And can you guess which Villa manager chalked up the most playing appearances against us?

But don't worry if you can't come up with all the answers - all is revealed in a special double-page feature in the Stoke programme.

We also pay tribute to the youngest line-up in Villa's league history, while there are regular columns from the manager, skipper Ron Vlaar and former Villa star Stan Collymore.

And Oliver Phelps, the actor famous for his part in the Harry Potter films, reveals My Favourite Villan.

The Villa Vault section, meanwhile, turns the spotlight on the 1999-2000 campaign, when we reached the FA Cup final and the League Cup semi-finals.

At £3, the Villa News & Record is great value - and for an even better deal, why not pick up a programme plus a Poster Book for younger fans?

The Poster Book normally costs £3 but at this final home match before Christmas we are offering both the programme and the book for just a fiver.

It's worth noting too, that half season programme subscriptions are now available for only £33 (UK).

Subscriptions will start for the Tottenham Hotspur edition and also include Wigan, Southampton, Newcastle, West Ham, Manchester City, QPR, Liverpool, Fulham, Sunderland and Chelsea.

Make sure you snap up your half season programme subscription.
