What Is Your Ideal Future?

What Is Your Ideal Future?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by tylervilla what is your ideal future for AVFC?

49% said an investment in youth and steady development.

38% would prefer success now and said we should buy the title!

A further 8% wanted global branding in the style of Manchester United, although I'd have thought that and the splashing the cash scenario would go hand in hand?

3% said we should keep the British base of the squad and add to it and 2% (the Blue noses basically!!!) voted for 'no change - I like Coca Cola'.

It's not asking much and it is all that we asked of Ellis to provide steady investment and development. But he missed those opportunities to build when we had a good base and that is why he finds himself in the position he is in now

That would be ideal. But is looking less and less likely

No matter who buys villa, if O'Neill or Sven end up as Manager, that would suggest that the funds are available to have a crack at top 4 maybe not straight away, but at most January. These guys will NOT come to this club without the funds to do so !!

Ideal future? Ellis out. The rest will take care of itself after that

Can somebody explain why Lerner got a face-to-face meeting with Ellis whilst Neville, who has actually put money on the table, is still waiting? We keep hearing it will take place over the next few days but they were saying that 48 hours ago. Seems to me he is being given the cold shoulder. My great fear is that Ellis has no intention of selling the club and put it up for sale merely to get detractors off his back. He has no obligation to sell. The ideal future is obviously O'Neil as manager with a respectable transfer budget behind him; worst case scenario is Ellis still in charge with Ericksson as manager. The current chairman has always hugely misjudged the fans, he probably thinks we will be delighted with such a high profile appointment. As the Guardian pointed out, Sven would be the perfect manager to continue Villa's decline into utter paucity.

As things stand right now, you have to ask, 'What future'?
