    Until you cough up the cash to change things, your going to have to learn to deal with it or simply be miserable with what time you have left.

    As for talking about “The good times”, although the football we play at VP isn’t so sometimes, the actual day as a whole is. Especially the away games, buzzing atmosphere, but you wouldn’t know because your on here at home whinging about “that misplaced pass” etc.

    Are your good times the days when we won the league, the same year Ipswich and WBA came 2nd and 4th respectively?? Similarly the times when your Lutons and Oxfords were in the top tier?? Look where these clubs are now compared to where we still are……

    On average we have always been a mid table club and we still are. Nothings changed there so I don’t see your points.

    What and let you depress me in person, I thought you’re meant to enjoy a pint? 😉

    You talk like we have always been a top 4 side in the top tier. You’re remembering the good few successful occasions and think every year is how that should be, when the facts are, on average we are and always have been a mid table side……Why cant you accept that??

    Of course we all want better, in both players and today’s football but the clubs philosophy has never been to spend tens of millions every season/window, the time Lerner did we were still an average side…..

    Angering myself with seeing the likes of Clarke, Westwood, KEA, Weimann, Tonev etc play got me nowhere so I’ve now chilled out and actually realised, looking through history that we are and have always been and average top tier side bar a few successes, therefore we are on track to keep our trend as mid table status and until oil barons take over, we always will be the same brilliant Aston Villa.

    Helenius my growing close friend, I was born under the shadows of Villa park 75 years ago, I have been told by my family that have gone to the happy hunting ground don’t let Villa die, and do what ever it takes to improve the club, that’s what I’m doing , its going to the dogs, I have to voice my concerns otherwise I’ll get sent below, we are in trouble at this moment in time, I just want you to see them happy days that I had. 🙂 🙂

      Helenius, you speak a lot of sense.

      Not many of these have as long as a memory as the bank manager, Lerner’s first ‘project’ to get a CL spot under MON was disastrous financially for the club.

      That’s all forgotten now and we should be in fourth or fifth with the clubs spending £40m-£50m on a player, never mind a Summer.

      Football has moved on but we haven’t been left all that far behind.

    Whew! Haven’t been here for a week, and it is so refreshing to come on and find the world is still spinning on its axis, night still follows day, and Ian (armchair critic) Robo is still moaning and whining about the Villa. The bloke sucked-up to the ghastly self-publicist O’Neil with hardly a fucking word of criticism. If this website is his idea of ‘good communication’ God fucking help us all.
