Former Villa boss Big Ron Atkinson Podcast Exclusive – Listen & subscribe.


Big Ron sticks in many Villa fans minds.  Charismatic, a winner & arguably one of the last truly great managerial characters to have been at the club.

From the highs of beating Manchester United in the 1994 League Cup final at Wembley (stopping Alex Ferguson securing the treble in the process), memorably beating Inter Milan at Villa Park, to the lows of his controversial sacking at the hand of “Deadly Doug” in November 1994.

In a change to the usual format, Ron Atkinson features as part of this weeks exclusive Podcast.
