Andi Weimann had made great strides as a Villa player over the past nine months - and he talks about his progress in the latest issue of the Villa News & Record.
The programme for the game against Manchester City includes an exclusive interview with the young Austrian striker, who has now clocked up more than 60 Villa appearances and scored 15 goals.
Elsewhere in the new issue, Brad Guzan reflects on his time on loan to Hull City a couple of years ago as he prepares for a return to Humberside in the Villa keeper's jersey next week, and Karim El Ahmadi is the player in the centerfold as he comes under the spotlight in our Kidzone section.
The unlucky Jores Okore, meanwhile, is the man the spotlight in our What's In A Name feature, where we use a player's name to reveal facts about him, while Leandro Bacuna answers the questions for The Last Word.
Our versatile Dutchman admits a liking for a certain spicy chicken restaurant - and regular columnist Stan Collymore reveals that Nicklas Helenius isn't the only player to have lost his shorts during a football match.
There's also a brilliant double-page spread to mark Libor Kozak's first goal for the club, while older supporters can take a trip down Memory Lane in our popular Villa Vault section.
This time we suggest six of the best Villa full-backs of the Premier League era, while winger Jimmy MacEwan is the Villan on the Spot in our regular Q & A series.
And Gordon Cowans recalls the most painful penalty he ever took.
