The 26 worst Aston Villa players in history - as voted for by the Villa Park faithful

Birmingham World asked the Villa Park faithful who they think is the worst Aston Villa player in history and there were countless brutal suggestions.

Aston Villa, just like all other big clubs in England, have had their fair share of under-performers but some stand out far more than others.

From players who couldn’t hit a barn door to serial mistake makers and expensive transfer flops, some are very recent while plenty are from years gone by.

We thought it would be a bit of fun to ask Villa fans on Facebook who they think are contenders to take the crown for the worst Villan of them all.

The responses were vast, to say the least, as supporters reflected on the past.

Flick through the pages to see 26 of the worst players, all of which have been directly selected by Villa fans.
