‘Sympathy for the Villa’ – The Original My Old Man Said T-Shirt

SKU: N/A Category: Tag:



My Old Man Said T-shirt


Available in claret (maroon), sky blue (light blue), white & black

Sympathy for the Villa

The original My Old Man Said T-Shirt design, which has since become the cover of the My Old Man Said podcast show.

Why wear a typical Aston Villa T-shirt, when you can have a work of Villa T-shirt art?

It’s sure to be a conversation starter with a design that is a claret and blue improvement of the initially banned image from the Rolling Stone’s Beggars Banquet album cover from 1968. The name of the shirt is a Villa take on the first track on the album – Sympathy for the Devil.

MOMS T-Shirt design

The graffiti includes some nods to Villa tradition, both past and present, as well as some Villa-centric twists on the original design.

The iconic design is something that’ll stay in your wardrobe for the long haul.

MOMS presented an original ‘Sympathy for the Villan’ MOMS T-Shirt to Jack Grealish pitch side at Wembley Stadium before the FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool in 2015. So we know it’s also a lucky T-shirt!


Beggars Banquet Inspiration

Availability & Shipping

T-shirts can be delivered worldwide. There are three postage rates – UK First Class, Europe and World. We trialed Standard Class postage in the UK for a pound less, but found it to be unsatisfactory and unpredictable. With first class, 90% of UK orders made before 2pm, will get there the next day.
