Major interviews

Founded in July 2017, The Claret and View is an Aston Villa blog covering top quality opinion, as well as match day and breaking news

Our aim is to inform, entertain and provide a different outlook regarding the delights and issues that fans face – including views on players, current form and more.

We try to turn away from ‘click bait’ and have high editorial standards.

We’re all about pushing boundaries. As of the 2018/19 season – we’ve become the first Aston Villa blog to provide content surrounding the ladies outfit of the club.

We were also finalists in the 2018 ‘Football Blogging Awards’.



We have appeared in an online publication on BirminghamLive (formerly known as The Birmingham Mail), and recorded a full-length interview with Birmingham’s Free Radio ahead of the 2017/18 Play-Off Final.
