    Badger that very thought struck me on announcing a Chairperson, if you own a business, I’m damed that I’d not hold that final say, £200k+ , Ellis got £1.75k in the 80s I’d go for £300+ ,as most now think all this is to divert the flack off him, Lerner has been schooled with his last ownership of Cleveland Browns how to side step problems, only way out for Villa is to get rid of Lerner. As for fatty Faulkner the only thing about that is cooking the books springs to mind.

      Bill, I doubt many know Ellis was the first chairman of a club, to pay himself, the greedy bastard.
      But that’s done.

      Side-stepping; Yes that’s what it is.

        What was his comment? “only women and horses work for nothing”.
        What an absolute charmer.

      Pat57,

      Your link doesn’t reference the “final say” part that I was on about.

      For clarity, this does;

      http://talksport.com/football/aston-villa-fc-remi-garde-will-have-final-say-over-transfers-says-chief-executive

      While managers used to go out and tell the scouts what to look for, now the moneyballers are suggesting players to the manager.

      There’s a subtle, but very important difference, imo.

        Perhaps you’re right Badger but I must admit I don’t care all that much now.

        I was trying to think of a word that would sum up how I feel about the Villa at the moment and found it – the word is ‘Despondent’ – the definition – ‘unhappy and with no ​hope or ​enthusiasm’

        That’s exactly the right word 🙁

          Yep, sums me up too.
          And no doubt most Villa supporters 🙁

            Seems this has decended into a spat between Fox and Sherwood. Both seem adamant they’re telling the truth, but to whose truth do they alude?

    Gabby Agbonlahor’s Aston Villa future could be in doubt after boss Remi Garde admitted to a ‘disagreement’ with the club captain.

    The 29-year-old was left out of the squad last week and is facing a fight to regain his place ahead of Saturday’s trip to Newcastle.

    Garde insists none of his players have asked to leave in January but concedes that he will look to offload any individuals who are not fully committed to the cause.

    Villa will listen to offers for Agbonlahor but the manager was quick to play down talk that he doesn’t trust the long-serving forward. Poor chap he’s been moaning about the way he’s been treated. This is on Birmingham mail today.

      MATE he threw a wobbly under GH as the manager wouldn’t play him because he just didn’t rate him,shabby said if houllier was still in charge the following season he would of left.Mr VILLA really believes he’s the bollox & should play when fit fairplay to REMI for standing his ground.

      Can’t see who’d come in for Agbonlahor; he’d have to take a big wage cut to interest lower-league teams, and which PL team would bother wtih him now?

        Stoke, Sunderland, Norwich, Bournemouth even Newcastle would probably all take Gabby right now.

          Your not far out Andrew, and he’d play his heart out to put us down, something not been right in our club over a few years, and I don’t mean management, although even that’s been dire, I mean dressing room might be money in wages or jealousy in some way, things don’t add up. You’ve only got to look at Chelsea that’s player power whats gone on over the doctor and how them players liked her. Could be me and I’m wrong. But it stinks.

            Scotland maybe. I hear there is interest from one of the biggest names in Scottish football, but Inverness Caledonian Thistle aren’t hiring so he is going to Ayr instead.

            They were struggling in Swansea game and pre season before she was sacked. Internet rumours are rife that she is seeing ivanovich and the way he’s been playing it makes sense. Though this is only alleged no idea if true.

            Why? Hughes would probably use him, and the other clubs would easily take him on.

      Giddy, I’m not seeing a problem here, but that’s no surprise given the only time I can get to read.
      I’ll reboot the server to see if it helps.

    Chelsea seemed to go wrong when they were invincible in the league and then lost to Bradford in cup…….the 2nd 1/2 of season they were boring as hell and lost 3-0 to baggies….its carried on from there.

      Chelsea weren’t as good second half of season most of their wins where ground out rather turning teams over. Mourinho is very defensive and is only good at leading from the front. They went top of the league and started well but if city had overtaken them he would struggle to catch them
