In 1870s, matches were less played. Aston Villa played even single match sometimes. Matches were played mostly under rugby rules. But in 1880s, football became more organized and in late 1880s, the director William McGregor formed a football league which consisted over 10 clubs. From then, Aston Villa dominated football with such a force that we see Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Aston Villa won the double in 1897, an FA cup and League cup. It was the team to beat by 1981 because it had won more domestic cups and honors than any other club in English football. The following year, 1982, Aston Villa won European cup which was renamed UEFA Champions league in 1992. It joined a group of four English teams to have won it by then.
