Well, as if the players revolt wasn't enough, it seems that Michael Neville may well be lining up a new and positive bid.
The Comers, it seems, are now totally out of the picture, but Neville has refused to give up and could well have lined up a blinding package.
Obviously no real details are available as yet but this would surely be a positive move and music to the ears of all Villa fans? Could we really - AT LAST - be looking at the end of Doug Ellis' regime at Villa Park?
The fans have revolted for years, the managers have left under many a dark cloud and now the players have chipped in with a statement that as good as says Doug Ellis (at the age of 82) has to go.
So surely there would be no better time to bid?
My information is that the Neville interest isn't the only interest but that as a Villa fan he is desperate to help come to the aid of this ailing club.
He told Pat Murphy (who spoke about the issue on Radio 5 Live tonight) that he was looking to put together a bid and that there has never been a more critical time.
Light at the end of the tunnel? It has to come, lets hope it is sooner rather than later. Any change HAS to be before the start of the season and Michael Neville certainly has a great knowledge and understanding of the club he has supported for coming up to 50 years.
Some are suggesting a bid could come in as early as next week, lets hope so and lets pray all ends well for Aston Villa, the club, the fans and the players deserve a massive slice of luck!
COME ON VILLA.
