Aston Villa: Head to Head

Peter Waring

Aston Villa: Head to Head reveals for the first time how Villa have fared against every club they’ve ever played, in any competition, since the club entered the Football League. From Accrington to York City, Villa’s complete record of matches against each club is looked at in detail and illustrated with pictures. Also included is a table of players who’ve played for both clubs and a ‘fact file’ highlighting the most surprising nuggets to be gleaned from this fresh way of interpreting the club’s statistics.

Did you know that Villa have not met rivals Birmingham City in the FA Cup for over a hundred years? That the biggest attendance ever at Villa Park came on 2 March 1946 when 76,588 packed into the ground to see a seven-goal FA Cup thriller against Derby that Villa eventually lost 4–3? Or that Villa have lost only once in 20 games against Burnley. All these facts and figures, along with countless others, are easily accessible in Aston Villa: Head to Head.
