    Pulis is manager of the season. He would be a manager who is experienced enough to to tale Villa up from the level we find ourselves in but i cant see him taking us beyond 8th and that is at a push. He would have ever steady the ship for a couple of seasons for someone to then push the club on. My only problem with Pulis is the fact he signed Cameron Jerome a useless player in my eyes

      All seems academic now mv with this alleged take over bid, that is if we stay up and that’s a big IF.

        We need a win and other games to go our way

          Not really, we can realistically stay up losing our remaining games 10-0 each as Fulham and Cardiff aren’t winning 2 of their remaining 4 and Sunderland aren’t winning 3 of their remaining 5. Nor do I see Norwich winning 1 more.

            Okay not 10-0 due to gd but you get it.

    Not really a big IF at all if we stay up.

    We have to lose all 5 games:
    Swansea have to draw 1 in 4
    West Bromich have to draw 1 in 4 and take 0 big beatings.
    Norwich have to win one of their last 4 games
    Fulham have to win 2 of their last 4 games
    Cardiff have to win 2 of their last 4 games
    Sunderland have to win 3 of their last 5 games.

    While we’re not technically safe, 4 of those 6 teams have to pull off that, and we lose all 5 games, for us to go down.

      We won’t go down Andrew. Don’t forget the fixtures Norwich have. For starters they will get mullered on sun by Liverpool then they’ve got arsenal utd etc.

        Exactly. 4 of those teams won’t do what they have to do to stay up and us to go down. Bottom 3 winning 2 games, 2 games and 3 games in 4, 4 and 5 games respectively isn’t happening. Norwich probably won’t win another game. And I can see us getting maybe 1 win, or a couple draws.

          Looks like take over rumours are bollocks exactly what I thought. Lerner and lamberk pretending we will spend money to get STs sold. Desperate or what. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2607309/Paul-Lambert-wants-summer-transfer-kitty-Randy-Lerner-Aston-Villa-track.html

            Oh, so dailymail of all papers claim Lambert wants money and now the takeover rumours are bollocks? If it was a credible website you gave us, then sure, but the Dailymail is by far the worst and I’d take the websites behind the takeover rumours to mean far more.

          2. OohAhPaulMcGrath April 18, 2014 at 1:02 am .

            The paper has contradicted itself. Which story is true

          3. Andrew April 18, 2014 at 2:08 am .

            Dunno, but I wouldn’t ever use Dailymail as a true source.

    I has been known for some while that Lerner, having failed to do an Abramovich, is not interested in retaining his English Soccer team. The stakes have changed and he has not got the money to compete with the five teams jousting for 4 champions league places.

    What seems to have changed today is the mainstream press risking their credibility to tout the rumours of a take-over. When you get the Telegraph and Guardian running the story it has to have some substance, even if it is information fed to them by Lerner himself.

    Likewise the news that the fans are calling for Lambert’s head. Read this blog and you will know the cross section of writers have been of that persuasion since the new year, but it seems a switch was flicked at Palace and all the hacks are on Lambert’s case – suddenly. Probably because Faulkner has said Lerner is concerned about it.

    Put the two stories together and you get Lerner calling Lambert to say his arranged sale is in jeopardy because the buyers will walk away if Villa drop. Therefore Lambert needs a couple of sacrificial goats, because he cannot sign new players, and has to grab the initiative and convince the players of a regime change. Hence the suspensions to bolster the mood at BH. Behind that all the players will know if there are new owners all their contracts are at risk of termination. Both story lines smell of being ruses to fire up the home dressing room – but for all that they may still be true.

      Good points OLL. After giving this some thought the only thing that would make fans happy is if Lerner sold. Is it possible this could just be another publicity stunt so everyone d rushes to buy STs thinking we will spend tens of millions next season. Also reading between the lines lambert seems to think he will be here with more money next season. Surely the first thing a new owner worth billions would do is get rid of lambert. He is useless and not a big enough name. Unless of course their ambition is about the same as Lerner.

    Aren’t Gillette and Hicks Texan billionaires? Look how bad they were.

      Liverpool already had gerrard and Torres before they came and the side was rebuilt with Torres money like Henderson Suarez etc

    I think you’ll get good & bad wherever there from, you can’t say Texans are tight but new Yorkers are generous.its the individual,it would be nice to actually get someone whos passionate about football which reflects on the field,basically ambition.

    Don’t want to get carried away by the takeover rumours but finally a little glimmer maybe in this dark hole we’ve been stuck in for years.
    If we were to get new owners, Lamberk would surely be gone (cause for mass celebration alone) and with money behind them we could finally start to look at some up and coming managers across Europe, so we can stop debating limited crap British managers like Pulis and Lamberk (although Pulis’ limited football actually yields results).

    ‘IF’ the takeover rumours are true it is dependant upon on Villa remaining in the prem.
    £200 million pounds is being banded around.
    Then why run the gauntlet. We should have spent £10 – £20 million in January to help stay up.
    If we go down Lerner gets sod all but more debt.
    I think there are a few storys coming out now to improve the atmosphere tomorrow – thats all.

    pulis for aston villa, now i really do believe villa fans are crazy. don’t get me wrong pulis is a manager that could do well for villa. but on the other hand,how long would it take for our faithful to get bored of the style.

    pulis may be playing different stuff currently at stoke. but this is only temporary most of them players, are not his signed by holloway. but soon as pulis gets his players in. you will see a more stoke like performances, less and less flair.

    this post is a joke, aston villa if they decided to shoot lambert, should look to steve mCclaron or another coach style manager. pulis would only be a temporary fix until the faithful or unfaithful got bored with the long ball. long throw ins . your moaning now with the style which lambert is FORCED to play cos of players lacking premier class. pulis played this by choice for years in premier and championship, this must av been a late april fools day u got me hehehhhe
