Villa v Sheff Utd match programme: Poster pullout special

The FA Cup meets the Premier League in the latest issue of the Villa News & Record.

The programme for the third round FA Cup-tie against Sheffield United includes a free giant pull-out poster which is a must for all Villa fans.

On one side there's a team group of the Villa side who won the Cup for the first time in 1887 - and on the other we have a superb picture of Gabby Agbonlahor.

Not only is Agbonlahor our highest Premier League scorer, he has now joined an elite club of 35 players who made more than 300 league and cup appearances for the club.

Elsewhere, you will find two double-page iconic Villa photos - Stiliyan Petrov's goal against the Blades in the third round three years ago and Dwight Yorke's cheeky penalty in the fourth round tie at Bramall Lane in 1996.

The Sheffield United issue also includes a look at six of Villa's best third round FA Cup-ties and we talk to Alan Wright - who helped Villa to victory in that 1996 game and then helped to knock us out when he played for the Blades nine years ago!

Chris Herd is the man in the spotlight in What's in a Name, while Marc Albrighton offers some revealing and amusing answers in our popular Last Word feature.

Then there are regular columns, by Paul Lambert, Stan Collymore and skipper Ron Vlaar, who reveals why he had double cause for celebration on New Year's Day.

The Villa News & Record costs £3, and for even better value, why not pick up one of our popular five-for-a fiver programme bags?

The offer for this game is the current issues, plus programme for four previous FA Cup-ties at Villa Park - Port Vale (1990), Doncaster Rovers (2009), Blackburn Rovers (2010) and Ipswich Town (2013).

Back issues from the recent games against Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Swansea City will also be on sale at the kiosks, priced £3 each.

You can also buy the matchday programme on eBay too.

You will also be able to snap up the new iPad version, which will be available before the game.

We also offer a subscription service at £66 for the printer version for the season, including postage.

European postage costs an additional £39 and worldwide postage an extra £64.
