Welcome To Randy Lerner

We've had years of rumours, months of speculation and weeks of nail biting but now the takeover so desperately needed has stepped up a gear as Doug Ellis, Jack Petchey (Treffic Ltd) the directors (barring Peter Ellis, durrr) have sold their shares to Mr Lerner. With the percentage he now owns, there is no going back, we've a new dawn at the club.

Mr Lerner, WELCOME to this mighty and magnificent club.

The pride has returned and the Lions are about to roar once again!

I just hope everyone gives Randy the time he is going to need. I've already heard 5Live talk about Villa in Europe next year. By all mean lets dream and aim for the top. But some patience will be needed. Good luck Randy.

We're actually about to have a modern, ambitious, progressive board in place. Top quality people in key positions at the club. A CEO perhaps. Expert advertising and marketing people. We'll actually be run as a 21st century sporting operation should be. Out with the old, in with the new.

Who amongst ever predicted that we would be champions in 81 and euro kings in 82? Realism is good but dreaming is oh so much better. Dare to dream!!
