Hmm, I was going to write a post about how the Villa PR machine seems to have gone into overdrive today, but fair play, you lot have pre-empted me 🙂
I do have a few thoughts though;
1) I’m interested as to how Fox is going to increase our revenue.
We massively missed that boat when Deadly refused to invest in the Villa, in the same way Arsenal did many moons ago. I don’t ever see us catching them now, even though we were very much on an even footing at the time.
In short, I believe that statement about he is going to catch up with the top 4/5 is total rubbish.
2) We’re sticking with Lambert, regardless of what us fans think.
That to me, is a blatant order from Lerner, simple as.
That’s a big gamble.
Was the comment I saw elsewhere a short while ago, that we’ve won two in eighteen really correct?
If so, just wow! I didn’t realise it was quite that bad!
Which takes us back to point 1). Who will want to invest in the Villa, when we’re currently failing?
Only by seriously moving up the table will prospective investors be interested and how do we achieve that if Lerner won’t spend?
3) We’re possibly back in for Sinclair, who has apparently cut his wage demands.
Don’t expect any quality then, in this window at least.
And re-read the previous paragraph.
I believe everything that has come out from Villa/Fox today is just designed to deflect the flak from Lambert and Lerner.
This is the comment that actually made me laugh, though;
“I’ve been at his (Lerner’s) house watching matches together and both of us are standing up pacing around at various points of time – depending on what’s happening – so he know’s what’s happening here.”
That’s strange, as I’ve struggled to keep my eyes open more often than not over the last few months at least.
Total BS, the lot of it, in my opinion.
