New Aston Villa Badge - You decide...

In case you weren't already aware, Aston Villa have announced they now have a new badge. Out goes the existing design, and in comes the replacement...

For what my opinion's worth (and that's probably not a lot), I think it looks distinctly like the product of an under-14's art competition. But wait - Aston Villa's website ensures us that there's sound reasoning behind the new design:

After being ommitted from the previous badge... the letters FC have been re-introduced.
At the expense of your team's full name?!?! It gets better...

The famous lion also has a different look. Gone is the fragmented image seen on previous Villa badges. The lion is now proud, looking to the future and unified - signalling our desire for togetherness.
What a load of rubbish. Oh and they've added a white star to represent their European Cup victory in 1982. The perfect finishing touch...

As you can tell, I'm not impressed. What do you think? Leave us a comment and make your feelings known!
