    btw yes nath the press are having a field day with lambert just because he was stupid enough to say what other managers wouldn’t but do no doubt agree with and then for other managers to come out going ‘oh no we love the fa cup its so important’ is so two faced its unreal, united pulled out o fit altogether a couple of seasons ago didn’t they so they could go play some tinpot world club championship in the far east. bloody hypocrites!

    Going down is never a good thing, what so ever!
    The notion is a complete joke!

    Well most on here have the view and i agree relegation would be disasterous .But don;t think we will have any option unless one of three things happen i;e Lerner sells and somebody comes in willing to invest vast sums of money 2 Lambert drops his loony idea of young & hungry or Lerner sacks him him and brings in a manager whom he can trust to spend what ever investment he makes is spent wisely to keep us in the PL.3 we grit our teeth take it on the chin knowing that Villa will for a lot longer than the last time we got relegated to become the force we should be.

    I have thought about this as well, but I agree with the majority, relegation is never a good thing. It shouldn’t get to the stage where we’re even thinking about it, that’s the problem. Yes, Newcastle bounced back well and finished 6th if I remember but if we went down, we’d stay down and for a long time as well I think; The Championship is arguably a harder league. Definitely more physical and scrappy. AVFC don’t do griity, physical and scrappy.

    Relegation would be disastrous. Thankfully over half way through the season there are nine teams beneath us.

    For the Newcastles and Saints that have gone down and are currently a place above us, there are teams like Portsmouth, Leeds, Derby, Blues, the Sheffields, Wolves etc who are struggling in the lower reaches and have fallen light years behind financially.

    It’s like those that bemoan the FA Cup losing status.

    Do you want £60m or a season’s glory ? A fan can give an easier answer than an owner.

    Unfortunately as a fan, the game has moved on.

    IDE rather stay in the PL than win a cup and have the chance to drop.Maybe have a good go at it when we are strong enough

    No to relegation, I fear that would be the end of us if it were to happen and we would struggle to get back up any time soon. spurs blog linking us to Holtby today, from the writers ITK source – http://spursdreamer.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/holtby-to-villa.html If this happens I would be very happy, perfect type of player we need at the moment, works hard but also has quality to his game.

    MD8…?. Yes I saw the Lewis Holtby link. It supposedly comes from a ‘very reliable’ ITK guy who is close to Spurs. Would be a very good acquisition….but would we meet his wage demands?

      Yeh that’s the one I’ve been looking at LV mate. Looks like he hasn’t been getting much playing time so a drop in wages my not be too unrealistic. Although I have no idea what he’s currently on..

        Who did you hear that from mate ?

    Going down would be disastrous. Players such as Guzan, Delph, Vlaar, Benteke and Kozak would certainly move on so that would be another rebuilding job needed. I am tired of this transitional period. What we need is significant investment in the summer and funds made available during this window. I see West Ham are now linked with Lescott on loan. FFS, if they can get him, surely we can! Lescott on loan, Holtby/Defour and Hoolihan would see us comfortably mid table this season IMO! Time to release the moths from your wallet Randy. I think with wages we are only talking about 10 mil to get these three deals done!
