    Aston Villa have launched a pre-application planning consultation on the first phase of the long-term vision for Villa Park and the surrounding area.

    Enhancements to the existing Trinity Stand would also see the stadium's capacity increase to over 50,000.

    The first phase of improvements are estimated to take place from 2023 through to 2025.

    Chief executive Christian Purslow told the club website:, external "We are excited to share our vision for Villa Park to become a world-class sporting venue and thriving community destination.

  2. 'Villa are on a good path, but the pressure will be high'published at 11:04 24 June

    Pressure will be on Steven Gerrard next season after the investment into Aston Villa's squad this summer, according to French football expert Julien Laurens.

    Villa have made four signings since the season ended, bringing in Diego Carlos from Seville and Boubacar Kamara from Marseille on a free transfer, while Philippe Coutinho and Robin Olsen both completed permanent moves after loan spells at Villa Park.

    "I think they are on the right path," Laurens told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast.

    "Kamara I know well from Marseille and he is a fantastic player. I remember when Gerrard went to watch him play I put it on Twitter and people were like ‘no way, there is no way he will go there’.

    "He went there because he liked the project. He wanted to work with Gerrard and as a defensive midfielder himself he knew there was a lot to learn every day in training.

    "Then they sign Diego Carlos, who is a Champions League centre-back. He makes crazy decisions at times but he will learn as well and I think he will fit really well in that team and in the Premier League too.

    "They are on a good path, but the pressure will be high. That investment brings the pressure with it. I believe in him and think he is going to be an amazing manager."

    Aston Villa's trio of England players impressed in a winning start at the European Under-19 Championship.

    Carney Chukwuemeka was the pick of the bunch, scoring and bagging an assist as the Young Lions beat Austria 2-0 in their opening game of the tournament in Slovakia.

    The 18-year-old has only started one game for Villa so far, but has appeared a number of times from the bench and could be set for a starring role for England this summer.

    He opened the scoring from six yards in the first half before teeing up Spurs' Alfie Devine for a scintillating second later on.

    Aaron Ramsey and Tim Iroegbunam all started the game for England, who are next in action against Serbia on Wednesday.

    Remember the days when football's elite names used pre-season as a chance to put their feet up and indulge, perhaps packing on some timber in the process?

    Our modern-day professionals seem to have shunned it fully as in their time off, Leicester City's James Maddison, Fulham's Harrison Reed, Aston Villa's Calum Chambers, and Liverpool duo Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been working out as a group at a complex in Portugal.

    Maddison has shared snaps of himself whipping free-kicks into the top corner and images of him generally working up a sweat alongside other Premier League names.

    Oxlade-Chamberlain is packing plenty into his summer break as his partner Perrie Edwards announced he proposed to her while on holiday over the weekend., external

  8. 'First three should be winnable' - your thoughts on Villa's fixturespublished at 17:06 17 June

    We asked you what you make of Aston Villa's 2022-23 Premier League schedule after the fixture list was released on Thursday.

    Here are some of your thoughts:

    James: If Villa want to be finishing in the top half, then they need to be aiming for at least 10 points from their opening five games. The first three should be winnable - and to take points from West Ham and/or Arsenal would be a real statement of intent.

    Mike: Good fixtures to begin the season by getting a few points on the board.

    Rupert: Villa need to gather momentum quickly otherwise it's going to be a long struggle again. Gerrard could be unemployed before Liverpool on Boxing Day.

    Westy: Easy start, tough end. I'd like to see us out of the traps fast at the start of the season. That would define the rest of the campaign and set up a challenge for a spot in Europe.

    Matt: We always seem to play one of the three newly promoted teams at the start of the season. I'd prefer to be away at the Etihad on the opening weekend! The promoted teams are massively up for it and it's always harder to get a result - Bournemouth will be no different.

  9. Break in Premier League of more than six weeks in 2022-23published at 15:03 17 June

    The 2022-23 season has been adjusted to accommodate the 2022 World Cup, which takes place in the middle of the domestic calendar.

    It starts a week earlier than normal - 75 days after the final day of the 2021-22 campaign - and finishes a week later than usual on 28 May.

    Fifa, world football's governing body, has already stipulated that players must be released on 14 November for the World Cup.

    It means the mid-season break will last more than six weeks.

    There will be 16 matchdays before Qatar - five in August, three in September, six in October and two in November.

    Games on 12-13 November before World Cup: Bournemouth v Everton, Brighton v Aston Villa, Fulham v Manchester United, Liverpool v Southampton, Manchester City v Brentford,  Newcastle United v Chelsea,  Nottingham Forest v Crystal Palace,  Tottenham Hotspur v Leeds United,  West Ham United v Leicester City,  Wolverhampton Wanderers v ArsenalImage source, BBC Sport
  10. Bournemouth and Villa to meet in repeat of 2015 season openerpublished at 12:26 17 June

    Bournemouth’s first ever Premier League game in August 2015 was a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa
    • Since they met on the opening day of the 2015-16 season, Bournemouth have won all three games against Aston Villa, each by a 2-1 scoreline.

    • Villa have won just once on the five previous occasions they’ve started a Premier League campaign against a promoted side, though that victory did come at the Cherries in 2015.

  11. 'Players need a break in order to perform'published at 09:52 17 June

    Ex-England defender Laura Bassett says players need a proper break in order to perform at a high level.

    After a busy post-season international schedule, the domestic 2022-23 season starts just 50 days after Premier League fixtures were released on Thursday.

    Bassett says recent international performances have shown that players need a longer break.

    She told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily: "It’s tough isn’t it? But over recent years it's something players have had to get used to, rightly or wrongly.

    "I just think the clubs are so refined in their processes and their research. The amount of staff that they have now, you really have to give the players as much support as possible.

    "But sometimes, as a player, it’s the psychological and mental aspect that you just can’t take away - and underestimate and downplay, to be honest.

    "We saw from recent games that it’s tough. These players are human - you can’t forget that. You can’t just roll out performances at such a high level and intensity. Players need a break in order to perform."
