Established in 2011 – The Villa Underground is an independent Aston Villa supporter social-blog & website.


‘The Villa Underground’ started as a simple Tumblr blog which soon branched out into the world of social media via Twitter (2011).

Our website, was next, bringing together what was becoming a sprawling network of fans and content.

The Villa Underground has documented it all.  From the highs of Wembley wins, relegation from the Premier League, conquering Europe, Cup triumphs, Championship Promotion and top flight survival.

We are humbled to receive thousands of visitors each month.

The focus since 2016 has been to work collaboratively in order that The Villa Underground remains a balanced, representative and irreverent source of news and views.


To report & reflect upon Aston Villa’s performance, honestly, consistently and with integrity.

To remain passionate, independent & optimistic. [*Still working on that last one]
