    Christ, has Paul Faulkner paid you to write this garbage?
    The club is an absolute joke and will continue to be whilst Lerner, Faulkner and Lambert remain.
    You should be ashamed of yourself. Terrible article.

      An 8 year deal. Maybe 10-15 January transfers next year. We should find our own nationality to go too. Maybe Italian? German would be great but probably not. Pardew likes the French and Dutch, maybe we should go strictly Belgian. 😉

        In all fairness, things have appeared static on the pitch, but we’ve been hearing for ages now about business deals behind the scenes. Faulkner has been slated for that but with financial fair play, that’s where villa are doing well. From now clubs will only be able to spend if the books are balanced which, as I said, these lower wages and business deals are working towards. I think the difference between your vision and theirs is short term expectations and actual knowledge of the club’s finances and how the new rules will work for us. You’re entitled to your opinion, and I’m not claiming to be some kind of sage here, but too many people aren’t looking at the bigger picture here

    if true I would certainly welcome the end of the ubiquitous transitional period and some serious squad strengthening. we’ve really had to suffer to get here(seasons not over yet).
    I do of course have serious reservations where learner is concerned as we have heard all this kind of thing many times before, the beer is always free tomorrow with randy 😛

      Oh and the way we’re going, if we get the same amount of points in our last 14 games as we did last season, we’ll end on 48 points. We’d have ended 8th last season and that’s 7 points more than we had last season. A bit more than just a few points and a few spots. But that’s a lot of ifs as Villa earned 21 points in their last 14 games.

    Good leader Adam.
    It’s true we don’t see what’s going on behind the scenes.
    Also true Swansea and the likes have been chucking money around like confetti and as QPR showed last season if not spent wisely it can be to no avail.

    I also agree with the Lerner philosophy of bringing players on low wages (£10k a week, just how do they cope?) and them having to earn the right to a bigger better pay day, it makes sense and a refreshing change.

    As for Everton / The Spuds qualifying for the champions league we’ll see but I wouldn’t put my mortgage on it.

    This article is the sort of propaganda and rubbish the official website comes out with.
    The club is not heading in any direction, it’s just a pathetic waste of time and space, owned by a perennial loser who inherited his dad’s fortune, ran by a bumbling buffoon of a CEO and managed by a mumbling berk who can’t even speak properly, yet alone manage, when there are several intelligent non-British managers out there.
    Stop clinging to some sort of long term hope, even taking the useless Lamberk out of the equation, Lerner achieved ZERO with the browns, in 7 and a half years at Villa he has achieved ZERO. History dictates nothing but more misery and failure, just ask the Browns fans that celebrated his departure.

    id agree bws, everton are doing brilliant this season although I expect the wheels to start coming off soon, reckon they will end up outside the top 4 by the end of the season. I also may expect them to struggle next season by comparison as 3 of their current starting line up at the moment aren’t actually everton players and will be gone come next season and with evertons spending power they will be difficult to replace.
    as for spurs considering the money they’ve spent a CL place is a must, again I cant see this happening, they cant seem to beat any of the teams around them, top four/6. possibly 120million for a Europa spot, oh dear 😀

    Bang on comment from Shite Future at the top, This “end of the transitional period” is bullshit. The end of the transitional period was this season when he (Lambert) established a first team (for this season) all of his own signings and all remaining high earners from previous managers were thrown into the “bomb squad”.

    Our football is worse this year and we have added zero quality to an already zero quality team, considering Benteke is not at full pace. The only reason we are where we are in the table is because it’s the worst PL season I’ve ever witnessed, it’s a totally dire season to follow and the teams below us are absolute shite bar Swansea, and we’re still not clear of them by a long chalk.

    Lose tomorrow, or even draw tbh and we’re firmly back in the relegation scrap (we kind of are already). I wish we were away tomorrow in all honesty. Wet Spam will come and put 11 bodies behind the ball and ‘park the bus’ and play counter and I can see them nicking a win.

    Tomorrows game is the biggest game of the season for us so far, 3 points is a must.

    Lambert out!

    we need 2 rally this season, cos we need 2 stay innit (prem) hammers will try 2 park the bus and we struggle with teams that do this simple but affective tactic

    Don’t get me wrong – most of the football we’ve seen from Villa this season has been shocking, but I don’t think we’re too many signings away from having a good side. The ones I would keep from the current set up are:

    Bacuna Okore Vlaar Bertrand
    Delph ????
    Agbonlahor Weimann

    6 of those players were signed by Lambert (if you count re-signing Guzan and Bertrand on loan). Don’t really think Bacuna is a right back, but hasn’t really been given a decent shot in the attacking midfield role yet. Albrighton has also looked good when he’s played, but would be better employed in a 4-4-2 system with wingers. Weimann has been disappointing, but he does have pace and is a good finisher. Might be better off playing him as a central attacker rather than a wide player.

    Others that could still come good are – Lowton, Westwood, Sylla, N’Zogbia. Haven’t really seen Helenius or Gardner. Kozak didn’t blow my mind, but his goal ratio was pretty good.

    Have been most disappointed with Baker, Luna and Clark this season. Clark has improved quite a bit from last season though, where he was simply a liability. Baker has gone down hill massively, but possibly still has potential. El Ahmadi I’m still not convinced about, but he has also improved this season.

    I do think there is a platform there to build from. Is Lambert the right person to do this? I’m going to take a lot more convincing yet, as some of his tactics have been woeful.

    However, if we can get Okore back fit and on form, sign Bertrand and possibly a solid right back, bring in a decent holding midfielder with a bit of physicality and an attacking midfielder with a bit of flair, I think we’d have a good looking side.

    even if the post is correct we will just be spending to get maybe 8th every season if that. Do we really want the cesspit that is Chumps league minor which for English clubs destroys their season ? (Ask fulham, swansea and Newcastle) as the squad is never big enough.

    If Lerner spends it will be £20M again but say on 2/3 players but that only gets you a 8-10th position, have the ambitions fell THAT low that people are happy with an Owner like that ?
