But following their sixth title triumph in 1910, the club stagnated and had to wait until 1981 for their next championship.
But this was Villas golden period, and in 1982 came the clubs greatest achievement - winning the European Cup.
But the heady days were not to last, and since then Villa have only tasted success in the 1994 League Cup.
Now under Alex Mcleish, Aston Villa continues good form in the Premier League by ending most seasons mid table but always fighting for a top four position.
Villa haven't won a major trophy since 1994 in the League Cup but are always in contention for a title and should never be ruled out of any competition.
