Sad times at Aston Villa FC. We have the worst scoring record across the whole of the football league and probably the worst owner.
Lambert is breaking records left, right and centre of the worst kind and the powers that be at B6 seem not to be bothered.
Randy Lerner has openly said in the “Club Statement” that he wants to and is looking to sell. Now ok, he is saying that he wants to sell now but he has been cutting costs and putting unrealistic restrictions on his managers since 2010. For years now we have been falling in class and in quality all across the board with not one real football man present who would care about footballing matters.
The club is and has been on a massive downward spiral and Randy Lerner doesn’t seem to care one bit.
As I’ve said I think he’s been recouping his losses since 2010 and has probably clawed a big chunk of his investment and spending back at a cost to AVFC.
We have seen the team on the pitch fall in quality and I believe Martin O’Neil left because Randy Lerner had told him it was time to cap the money pot no more Champions League dream, budget players only.
I find what Randy Lerner is doing is ruthless with total disregard to our tradition, trophy success, size and of course AVFCs fanbase ie The 12th man.
Randy Lerner has shown himself to be a fake owner never present pretending to care with little scraps of money here and there which to me does not represent what a club the size of Aston Villa deserves. Randy Lerner is a crook, dismantling AVFC just to recoup his losses. He has disrespected the club, disrespected the clubs tradition, disrespected the clubs loyal fanbase praying on their loyalty to recoup his money spent.
He has also disrespected managers he has employed by restricting their funds in the transfer market and on players wages so they can’t do their jobs properly. Knowing the supporters will turn on the manager, not him.
Yes Paul Lambert has failed, yes Paul Lambert should be taken out of his misery as his footballing management career is well and truly over due to results on the pitch.The supporters have definately turned on the manager and want him gone but not much has been directed towards Lerner himself.
It was just a matter of time before his deceit was figured out by the supporters.
The club is a shambles from top to bottom rotten to its core the great pretender never present at a club he is supposed to care about. How many more managers, how much more of loyal supporters money before this crook decides enough is enough?
We, AVFC will be floundering in the lower tier of the football league before he decides he has recouped enough of his money in my opinion.
Lerner should respect the club, sell it at a loss to somebody who wants to love AVFC again and respect it. The only thing Randy Lerner respects at this time is money. Thats him taking it and not putting enough back in.
This club AVFC is dangling by a thread and the man who calls himself the custodian of Aston Villa, its gaurdian, is nowhere to be seen.
My Personal opinion is Aston Villa will be relegated this season but what portion of that will Randy Lerner take responsibility for?
We can say our squad is good enough, we can say it’s all Paul Lambert’s fault but the catalyst of our demise in my personal opinion is Randy Lerner.
