‘Legend’ is a word that is branded around football quite often in the modern day game but is it always justified?

Here at Avillafan.com we believe the answer to that question is no. A football legend is a player who hasn’t  just played for the club, but is someone who gave there all towards Aston Villa Football Club and wore the Claret and Blue shirt with pride.

Below is a list (always growing) of players who believe to be regarded as Aston Villa legends.

[2004-2009] Martin Laursen
[2001-2008] Olof Mellberg
[1998-2002] Paul Merson
[1994-2003] Ian Taylor
[1989-1996] Paul McGrath
[1988-1991] David Platt
[1959-1975] Charlie Aitken
