On this day in 2005, Patrik Berger joined Villa from Portsmouth.

The Czech Republic international was in the autumn of his career when he switched to claret and blue, and his time with the club was hampered by injury problems which restricted him to just 32 league and cup games over the course of three seasons. 

But he still produced some silky skills and a couple of goals to delight the Villa faithful.
