“It must be. It is. Peter Withe!”

The famous quote emblazoned across the middle of the North Stand signifies the most iconic moment in the history of Aston Villa.

Withe was a much-travelled striker but the best years of his career were undoubtedly at Villa Park, the highest point being his famous winner against Bayern Munich in the 1982 European Cup final.

The Liverpool-born striker was signed from Newcastle in 1980 but another of the Villa greats Ron Saunders and proved to be the final piece in Villa’s league championship-winning side.

He formed a devastating partnership with Gary Shaw, as Villa won the league, European Cup and European Super Cup in consecutive seasons.

International recognition also followed – the striker earning 11 caps, scoring once and earning a place in the England squad for the 1982 World Cup finals.

Peter was also the first-ever English player to feature in a World Cup Finals squad whilst representing Aston Villa.

By the time Withe left Villa in 1985, he had amassed more than 200 appearances and scored 90 goals.

He later returned as assistant to boss Dr Jozef Venglos and then as chief scout.
