A very special football collectible could be yours at the end of this season - every Premier League team, every player`s signature.

Cure Leukaemia are offering one lucky football fan a fantastic end-of-season prize after getting together with every club in the Barclays Premier League for a campaign in support of Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov.

Villa`s popular skipper was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in March 2012 and the courage with which he has faced his battle against the illness has touched many people in the game.

The players of all the visiting teams to Villa Park this season have been signing boards specially commissioned by the Club and Cure Leukaemia for a fabulous prize to be won by one lucky supporter at the end of the season.

To enter the competition and to donate £5 to fund Cure Leukaemia`s excellent, life-saving work, fans can text STAN 19 £5 to 70070.

'The support of Villa fans and the support of football fans all over the country and around the world has helped me a lot during my illness and this is another great initiative which can hopefully raise awareness for a very worthy cause,' said the player known affectionately as 'Stan`.

'I have learnt a lot about this illness over the past nine months or so and I`ve learnt about the people it affects and the impact it has on their families and the people they love.

'What we`re trying to do is draw people`s awareness to this illness and do something practical by raising funds and helping to combat the disease.

'I`m delighted that the cause has been supported by my team-mates and my colleagues throughout the Premier League. It`s very touching and the amount of money we raise can make a real difference.'

Cure Leukaemia is a charity funding specialist nurses to treat leukaemia patients with drugs that are not available on the NHS.

Cure Leukaemia CEO James McLaughlin (pictured with Darren Bent below) said: 'The idea for this campaign came about in the summer and now here we are with it as a reality.

bent and james

'It`s a great achievement for everybody who`s been involved so far. You look at the names and the value of the squads who`ve been involved so far and it`s amazing. There`s going to be some lucky winner out there who gets a phenomenal amount of signatures.

'The purpose of Cure Leukaemia is very simple: the more nurses we can fund, the more lives we can hopefully save. I think the other important thing is remembering that the more nurses we have, the quicker we can get the drugs to the patients.

'An average drug can cost £250,000 just to get put through. That`s a heck of a lot of money and that`s just for one patient. These are big sums and that`s why we need people to really get behind the campaign.'

After donating via text, fans should also register their details in order for their donation to be eligible for Gift Aid and also to ensure that they can be notified after the draw, which will take place following the last day of the Premier League season 2012/13.

Fans can also enter online at .

Cure Leukaemia funds research nurses to enable patients to access potentially life-saving and ground-breaking drugs and treatments.

To date, Cure Leukaemia has helped to treat more than 400 patients through securing £17m worth of revolutionary drugs, as well as funding research nurses to administer these trials.

Without expert research nurses to ensure patients are constantly monitored and cared for, these trials could not happen.

Oh please, now the sponsorship deal has gone tits up you want to sell them at a reasonable price? How about you don't put an 80% mark up on them in the first place in order to fleece the fans. Stick the 20-20 marketing tag up your arses aswell.

"Roll up, Roll up, step right this way ladies and gents. Take this opportunity to buy a souvenir Aston Villa shirt complete with Premier League sleeve badges. For a limited time, these items are available at a reduced price. You'll kick yourselves if you don't take this opportunity. Guaranteed to increase in value due to the novelty of being 'Premier' shirts and you don't know how long after this season it will be before they are in this league again."

Hate to be cynical, but does the fact that they are trying to get rid of the merchandise at reduced rates in January mean that they have loads of stock no one will buy? Macron may have offered a wider range of products, and Nike may have delivered the shirts late, but people are more likely to buy items from a 'known' company. Products from 'known' companies also represent better value for a fan as it is more likely you will wear said items after the season they were issued in. I wonder if financial wizard Faulkner factored reduced merchandise sales due to a unknown/crap kit provider in on his spreadsheet before basking in his record kit deal? I reckon even a cursory look over the accounts would show Villa are actually worse off with Macron. We may have got more upfront from Macron but I would hazard a guess that the drop in sales accounts for a more than significant difference in revenue.

I said it before. This Macron product is poor quality *****e - a la Primark - and should have been half the price. 20 quid is about it's maximum value I would say. Macron was just another sign of things to come. Poor quality at Villa, at the moment, from top to bottom.

I'm going to buy my usual one. Long Sleeve home shirt, Prem badges, Number 5, MCGRATH. Might get a new cup too. Bit irked that I couldn't buy my father in law an Arsenal ticket as he has no "booking history". So decided not to go myself either. New shirt and cup is cheaper too!
07/02/2013 16:11:00
Blimey, no one is forcing anyone to buy one!

I know Fear. It's more a case of........The football has been terrible, so have results, the Chairman isn't committed and we don't seem to care about potential relegation. But put all that to one side and keep giving us more of your money. Enough is enough!

Wouldn't buy any merchandise while over paid *****s like Ireland are disgracing our great club, warming the bench and not even trying - not giving a toss. Just don't want to contribute even twenty quid to pay these *****ers inflated wages.

Got to agree, if Lerners not spending then neither am I
