Should Michael Neville Pull Out Now?
Our latest poll asks if it is time for Michael Neville to retire gracefully from the takeover race?
I've spoken with Michael Neville, he comes over as a good guy. So my suggestion, and I will pass it on to him today, is to step aside now.
He was quoted a few weeks back saying he would love his group to be successful (and I don't doubt that for a second) BUT if another group come in he will wish them the best as he just wants the best for Aston Villa.
Well, I think it is time to wish the new guys luck, step aside and have the thanks of many fans for acting as one of the catalysts for the current wind of change.
I for one think he has been working his nuts off to try to raise the right money, to try to get into Villa and to try to restore this mighty club of ours. It hasn't quite worked out, but you can't blame a man for trying, I'd rather have people trying and failing, than not trying at all.
But now we have a group with serious money, have had a bid endorsed by the board, have the right plans for AVFC, it is time for Michael to take a very well earnt rest, I know he has stuck his neck out doing this and the time spent on this will have cost him a great deal of money and other business opportunities.
So thanks Michael, sit back, relax and enjoy the new season!?
