Club Statement From Lerner

Just got this statement of the Aston Villa OS from Randy Lender.

Very nebulous but lets hope he is taking the hint and gets rid of Lamberk instead of making excuses for him.,,10265~3777796,00.html

“Following the point yesterday at Villa Park, there have been stories about my selling the Club. On a personal level, I had hoped the emphasis would have been on the amazing effort on the part of our manager and our players to regroup throughout a very difficult week. Injuries to Libor and Christian, compounded with the early loss of Jores and the difficult rehab of Charles have no doubt left Paul with far less to work with than is fair. Still, Paul Lambert has done nothing but work within the parameters I’ve set, put the Club first and continue to trust his players. As regards my personal role at the Club and the steady rumours of a sale, I will address these after the season. Paul Lambert, Paul Faulkner and I speak daily and remain committed to the immediate job of limiting distraction and confusion in order that Villa have the best chance possible of finishing on a strong note.”

– Randy Lerner, Aston Villa Chairman

    Couldn’t care either way. Be nice to get some proper money in but without ridiculous Stadium name change sponsorships, i don’t expect much.

    It explains why Lambert was not sacked. I also feel he is almost confessing that these recent years have been his fault.

    I think this is his final year a long with Faulkner and Lambert, but like everything Aston Villa i will believe it when i see it

    Hooray, new owners coming! But, hold on all new foreign owners are nutcases, so post your ideas for the stupid idea they will try to inflict on us. The following are no dafter than recent real scenarios.

    a/ Change the shirts to Green because it is “lucky”;
    b/ Rename VP American Airlines Stadium;
    c/ Rename the side Aston Lions;
    d/ Shift the Holte End so it faces Mecca.
    e/ Erect a statue of Mick Jagger outside the main entrance.
