Not Many Backers For Herb

Not Many Backers For Herb

Vital Villa asked your opinon on the Doug Ellis situation in todays poll.

26% said they won't return to Villa Park until he has gone.

4% said they'll not back any group who involve him (in the boardroom).

63% said both the above.

Just 7% said they supported Doug.

I'm shocked, I've always liked him.

The latest poll asks what sort of future you would like to see for Villa, as suggested by TylerVilla.

I voted for investment in youth and steady developement but I would actually like to combine that with global branding, they are two concepts that would marry quite nicely and need not be exclusive of each other.

cant see why anyone would want to buy the title. Look at Chelsea, if they dont win anything, its a shocker of a season, but with us, if we win something, its a massive achievement. i dont want to get to that stage Chelsea are at.

I agree with miscsymmonds we dont need to do a chelsea and buy every named player ,they are still not good enough in europe and never will be. Also investing in youth with steady development is the key we got the potential lets use it but first lets try and get rid of that dead man walking! OLD ELLIS YOUR TIGHTER THAN A DUCKS ASS

Exactly, once Ellis is removed from power we can, like other clubs, look forward to a bright future, whichever route we take getting there. I do believe that investing heavily in your academy is a step in the right direction. There's a lot to be said for bringing the young lads through your club's system. They surely have to feel more a part of the club that way, plus they are schooled in a particular clubs way of thinking and doing things. Achieving that fine balance between nurturing your own, and bringing in players via the transfer market, is without a doubt the key to success.

All we want is steady investment in the team. The new manager who comes in should have the ability to spot which of the youngsters will take the club forward and then it is a case of investing in real quality in order to add to that. Just throwing money at the club won't work. To quote Ellis, we don't want to go down the same road as Leeds, and he's right. From what I've heard of Lerner and Neville, I don't think either of them will see that as the solution. SSN reporting last night that O'Neill had agreed to become manager if Lerner was successful

I like the fact Villa have a relatively high proportion of UK players. I dont want to be like arsenal and go to games with no UK players in the starting 11. If we do get a dream owner who will splash the cash its important IMHO to not just go and bring in a load of foreign players who are just there for the payday. If were were to get into europe (what am i talking about) it would be nice to geniunely represent england.
