    Mr Lerner, I doubt you’ve ever even heard of this site but just to re-emphasise what you’ve risked, read this, you cock;

    It’s called relegation.
    Truly scary.

      Great article Badger but am surprised by the articles “your best players get sold, less is spent on replacements” mentioned….. were we relegated 3 seasons ago !

    I actually think we have the makings of a pretty good team with 3 or 4 decent signings. What they do need is proper coaching and a good system of playing. Lambert is nit capable of either.

    Official website claims ST sales are over and above the expected level! They dobtalk a good game, shame it’s not replicated on the pitch.

      The level was obviously set low! Don’t know of anyone who sits near me that has renewed yet, many are not going to renew.

    Impressive PR. Unless I’ve read it wrong states higher than expected. That of course could mean the club were expecting awful interest and still got awful interest but slightly higher than expected. Real play on words. Does it say numbers have increase or remained consistent with last year? PR machine. You need to be clever to understand

      Its a load of bollocks ted its just so people think they might sell out or think people are buying because they think we will be taken over and are going to spend zillions when in fact lerner and lamberk will still be here shopping in poundland. Thats assuming we stay up lose tomorrow and we are in big shit.

    Spin has been one of the growth industries. “In line with expectations” is classic director speak in response to a question as to how the firm is doing. It could be heading straight for Carey St (bankruptcy court) but if the directors expect that is where it is headed – use the phrase.

    I suspect season ticket sales are well below break even. The Villa’s current awful form is the prime reason but not the only one. A world cup summer brings more than the usual musical chairs amongst players and coaches – reason to hold fire until the smoke clears. There is one more factor now – the number of alternative ko times to Sat 3pm. If some of those ko’s means ST holders cannot attend they soon question the value of a ST. Especially so if they expect the home games will rarely sell out and they can buy a seat the day before.

    Sky and the other TV rights holders have sold on coverage of all EPL games to companies abroad who deliver content over the internet. As a result if you do not mind commentary occasionally in Russian or Spanish it is possible to watch nearly every Villa game on computer if you have a high speed broadband. this also chips away at the willingness to stump up in advance for a next season so full of uncertainly the only guarantee is Villa will not be challenging for a top six EPL place.

      Agree OLL. I can go to my local and watch about 90% of villa home and away games and it’s usually in English. Not that it matters anyway as commentators talk bollox most the time and the action is most important. Why pay the best part of a £100 to watch the pile of shit served up virtually every week where I can buy a couple of coffees (teetotal) and suffer for a few quid. Having said that teams like derby have already sold 17.5k STs for next season. And a lot of prem clubs like Newcastle are always sold out regardless of where they finish. The sky tv broadcasts killed it for me as before sky virtually every home game was 3pm sat or 7.30/7.45 on a wed. I always knew I could make those times. But when it kicks of 5.30!on sat or lunchtime etc who the fuck wants to go them times not me that’s for sure. Sat 5.30 fucks up going out arrangements and sun lunch is the middle of the day so can’t go anywhere not so bad at 4pm. Also who knows what division we will be in lose tomor and we could be in big trouble. Having said that the city away game and spurs game won’t be that difficult as city are out the race and spurs season over to. So plenty of chances to limp to safety. I don’t know one mate that’s renewed so far they are all waiting to see what happens. As far as I know not one will renew under lamberk and Lerner.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
