Brad Guzan has gone from zero to hero over the past 12 months - and he has been talking to the Villa News & Record about his dramatic change of fortune.
An exclusive interview with the American keeper appears in the programme for the game against Newcastle United as Paul Lambert's men return to action after a two-and-a-half week break.
The latest issue also includes a welcome to our new Czech Republic striker Libor Kozak, while Gabby Agbonlahor is the player featured in What's In A Name - where we take the initials of a player's name to reveal facts about him.
Ashley Westwood, meanwhile, is the man on the spot in The Last Word, the classy midfielder revealing that he's as creative in the kitchen as he is on a football pitch.
Younger fans will love the superb action photo of Aleksandar Tonev on the centrefold, while the Villa Vault section includes Tony Daley's memories of the 1994 League Cup final, a Q & A session with Alan Wright and a look at six memorable Villa away days - one of them only a few weeks ago.
The popular My Favourite Villan feature returns in this issue, too, with Dean Beresford, the drummer with Richard Hawley's band, talking about a player he never saw but who means so much to him - his grandfather Joe Beresford, scorer of 73 Villa goals in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
Then, of course, there are regular columns from Paul Lambert, skipper Ron Vlaar and former Villa star Stan Collymore, who has some sound advice for England manager Roy Hodgson.
