Are You A Lion Or A Villan?

Are you a Lion or a Villan?

Over the years I've always seen Villa fans referred to as the Lions and recent chats on the listman forum have shown that Villa were the first club to use a Lion as their emblem. However in recent years I've seen a rise in the nickname the Villans as well.

So, as a Villa fan let us know on our current poll, what do you prefer, are you a Lion or a Villan?

Oh, and what am I doing with my life worrying about such things.......! :o(

100% lion for me.
The Fear
The thing about being a Vallan is that it is an immediately identifiable and unambiguous label, which cannot be for Lions. I vote 'Villan'.
DoogieTyBrenin
yeah, but you know we are on the righteous path! I must admit, I mix them about when doing the articles on here, but I prefer Lions more as we are THE Lions.
The Fear
Villain but i do join in with the naff song "come on you Lions"
TuBBz

Villain, cant be arsed to change my name now!
silkie villain
I reckon Villain too.
Tierney
I'd go for your being a Villan. Its immediately indentifiable with the club, whereas Lions possibly has a few rival supporters scratching their heads. Mind you, a few rousing chants of 'Come On You Lions' at away grounds is always a pleasing sound on the ear.
glensider
There are loads of 'Lions' but can only ever be one 'Villans'. Keep the Lion on the shirt, but re-introduce the origin Villan back into the club, with the pointed hat.
BEEFY
Milllwall, Chelsea and others claim to be Lions, but we are the original McGregor Lions, so "Come on you Lions." The Villa Villan/Villian is a side issue, the lion is history and fact.
Fletch
I like Lions better, but I agree with the notion that Villans is more unique. Villans it is.
