Villa v Fulham match programme: Read Sylla's fishy stories

Yacouba Sylla is the man in the spotlight in the latest edition of the Villa News & Record - and he has a few fishy stories to tell.

In an exclusive interview, the French midfielder explains how certain TV programmes are helping him to learn English, and how his advice has turned Christian Benteke into a decent cook!

The programme for the Fulham match also includes a chat with Jores Okore about his hopes for next season, while Libor Kozak reveals what he has been up to in Last Word and Leandro Bacuna is the subject of What's In A Name.

Then there's a centrefold poster of Matt Lowton in our Kidzone section, while there are some fascinating memories throughout the award-winning Villa Vault pages.

Six of the Best takes a look a half-a-dozen cult heroes from Villa's Premier League era - including Peter Crouch and Tommy Johnson - while a cult hero from the 1970s answers the question in Villan on the Spot.

Former striker Sammy Morgan has plenty to say and is well worth a read.

And with the Ukraine crisis at the centre of world attention right now, we have an evocative photo of Villa's invasion of Crimea more than three decades ago.

And Charlie Aitken, the club's 660-match record appearance-maker, recalls the night he went into the visitors' dressing room at Villa Park after one of the most famous victories in our history.

Throw in columns, with Paul Lambert, Ron Vlaar and Stan Collymore, plus a comprehensive look at the visitors, and we think you will agree the Villa News & Record is outstanding value for just £3.

For even better value, look out for our popular five-for-a-fiver programme bags, which will include the Fulham issue plus programmes from the past.

You can also buy the matchday programme on eBay too.

You will also be able to snap up the new iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone version, which will be available before the game as well as the Kindle Fire edition too.

 We also offer a subscription service at £66 for the printed version for the season, including postage. European postage costs an additional £39 and worldwide postage an extra £64.
