Can Villa Fans Start Dreaming?
According to reports Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner is looking at investment opportunities in the United Kingdom.
Obviously the talk of the town is that he is looking to buy Aston Villa and he is definitely in the country with talk of a board meeting on Monday.
Could we truly be this close to the winning line now? Yup. My opinion is Doug can't not sell now, the fees from Rothschild would be prohibitive if he rejected decent bids.
A fan called Liam did ask Doug when he was going yesterday as he followed Martin O'Neill to greet the fans, his answer was 'I'm not' but he simply has to and my information is he will.
Bill Bonsiewicz, a Browns spokesman, refused to be drawn on whether Randy was looking to bid for Villa 'But he is exploring business options, including in the United Kingdom where he's been involved in the business community since 1993,' Bonsiewicz said. 'He's always maintained other businesses outside the Browns.'
It seems there is a board meeting on Monday, could we dare to dream?
