It Ain't Over Til The Fat Lady Sings

It Ain't Over Til The Fat Lady Sings

They say in America that it 'ain't over until the fat lady sings'.

Well, according to Cleveland Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz, the fat lady is singing.

He said on the Lerner interest in Aston Villa: 'His interest is over.'

Lerner, as we all know, approached Villa with a major interest in the club but having become disillusioned with negotiations following a meeting with Doug Ellis, abruptly put a halt to proceedings.

Wish we knew the truth about this. Some say Randy objected to the banker being present (no not Doug - the banker) in which case I think Doug was right. Others say Doug upped the anti, whilst others reckon he wanted to retain some control. In which case he remains the real problem and we will never be shut of him until the Grim Reaper comes calling. Are Grim Reapers listed in yellow pages?

What can we do to oust Ellis out for good. He is not running the club for the good of us supporters and it is very worrying. We are on the bring of getting rid once and for all. What can we do to finally rid of him.

Fact is that Ellis has never valued the fans - except those in corporate boxes. He cannot conceive that the club means as much to us as it does. He believes he is the only one to care because he is chairman. I remember seeing the board sacked in the early 60's and reading the promise that one man would never have the same control again. Then this conceited chap arrives. he has done a good, but limited, job. However he thinks he walks on water. Perhaps the drought will find him out.

This is so frustrating. I am spending all day on news sites and Villa sites just hoping for some news, any news. I really hope Lerner will come back to the negotiation table. UP The VILLA

Not so concerned about Lerner pulling out (we'd have been saddled with debt and dunkin' donuts at half time - I'm a traditionalist, I prefer no debt and a Balti pie) but what does concern me is Deadly Herbert's negotiating stance. His alleged insistence on a post-takeover 'role' will alienate all bids bar Neville's which, it seems, is the weakest in terms of finance available. Is Deadly working in the best interests of the club ? Of the shareholders ? Unfortunately, I think not.

Does anyone in Villa land know what this new consortium mentioned in the Evening Mail is? I'm in Chester and there is no news of it here.

Another day, another consortium...this one is called AV06 and is London-based and led by a international lawyer named Pdfield. Evidently he helped set up the Serbian government in 2001...useful experience, I'd have thought, when tackling the post-takeover mess of Deadly Herbert's reign!
