      BWS, its getting unbelievable to see Villa at last going all out to be back on the top flight, I take back everything I’ve said about Lerner he must have his heart in the right place, long may it continue. Vtid.

        Looks as if he’s finally decided that there’s no point being in the business if all you aim for is ‘survival’ – and maybe the backroom team at VP have convinced him that he doesn’t need to spend tens of millions £’s on individual marquee signings on totally exorbitant wages, if the alternative is to actually scout for younger talent that wants to show what it can do in a Villa shirt…

          All good points Ardent but I also wonder whether this new investment approach has arisen out of what the club learned from the recent closed due diligence process that didn’t lead to a sale? My other point would be that Lerner always intimated that he needed to rebalance the finances following MON’s excesses and the crash of 2008 and to respond to the FFP rules. If that’s been achieved and with RL having more confidence in the senior management team and additional income from Sky then in makes sense to return to a properly managed investment strategy.

          Now TS has to deliver.

        It’s great see isn’t Bill? And I have a good feeling about tonight, I reckon we’re going to turn them over good and proper – 2 – neigh 3 nil. UTV!

        Ardent, there appears to be a air of expectancy around VP, TS has lifted the gloom of the Mc (he that shall not be mentioned) and the Lambert era’s. It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally feeling great to be a Villan again.

          Agree that the reasons for the about-turn are not that important.

          My only concern is that the whole up-beat mood will change as soon as we lose a couple of games; all of this team-building is clearly medium to long-term [at least 2-3 seasons] and as sure as night follows day it’ll take months to get a team functioning as a unit. I can just imagine the comments on here if we’re struggling to put points on the board while the blend is being sorted…
