Hello, and welcome to Up the Villa! Established 5 or so years ago to report on all things Villa, it’s been a bumpy ride!

There have been one or two ups, numerous downs, and now we find ourselves in the Championship, but with a renewed sense of optimism under the new ownership of the one and only Dr Tony Xia. Whatever happens, it should be a fun ride, so feel free to take that ride with us here.

We’re also active on social media, and the Facebook and Twitter icons at the top of the page will take you to our relevant pages. Here at Up the Villa, we’re always looking for writers and contributors, so if you’d like to get involved, please head to the Contact Us page!
