Would You Bet Against Us?

Author(s): Paul Hunter

It’s 1982. Aston Villa beat Bayern Munich 1–0 to win the European Cup. They remain one of only five English teams to win the biggest prize in club football—yet no one thought they stood a chance.

Around the corner, 16-year-old Paul’s geography teacher tells him he would amount to absolutely nothing.

Would You Bet Against Us? marks the 40th anniversary of an iconic event for Aston Villa, for Birmingham and for Paul. Created by The Rep and Told by an Idiot and written by Brummie and lifetime Aston Villa fan Paul Hunter.
