Randy Lerner Over The 90%

Statment from the official site:

RAL has now received valid acceptances of the Offer in respect of more than 90 per cent. of the Aston Villa Shares to which the Offer relates.

Accordingly, RAL has today issued notices under Schedule 2 to the Takeovers Directive (Interim Implementation) Regulations 2006 to those Aston Villa Shareholders who have not already accepted the Offer, informing them that it now intends to exercise its rights to acquire compulsorily all the Aston Villa Shares outstanding at the expiry of the requisite notice period.

In the meantime, the Offer remains open for acceptance.

This announcement should be read in conjunction with the Offer Document dated 14 August 2006. Terms used in this announcement shall have the meaning given to them in the Offer Document.

Does this mean that we can now stop the "GET FLETCH OUT" campain?

Mr Lerner you have our club in your soul care. Please treat it with respect and thoughtfulness.

When does work start on the money pipe (from MBNA into transfer funds account)?

Of everything that must happen to take our club back to the top tier of the game, surely the most important single thing that Randy could do, is to get M'ON's signature on a long term contract. This one single issue can determine the future of the club. We have an opportunity to shape a dynasty similar to that of redscouse in the 70's, Manure in the 90's and Forest who came somewhere in between. It is not often that these opportunities are presented and it is vital that they are grasped with both hands when they do.

The guy means business! Already sent the bulldozers in to Bodymore Heath! Something Ellis promised to to 1 year ago!
leelindsay
This is Fab news and it seems he cares more about the club then Ellis did with giving us money and sorting out Bodymore

Hey hammie, do you think we should put Randy on the banner?
Villain Of The North
I agree with Voiceoftheholte, Randy's first job must be to get MON on a long term contract and then set about showing that the trust we Villains have placed in him is not mistaken. He has taken control of a great club, albeit damaged by Herberts messing about, now is the time to move forward, together.

what a excellent idea Villian of the north, GET RANDY ON THAT DAMN BANNER FEAR OR I'LL SLAP YOUR HEAD LIKE A BONGO DRUM REPEATEDLY
hammie
haha that made me laugh so much!

Some very interesting times ahead, with probably a lot of comings and goings behind the scenes at Villa Park. Theres a lot of deadwood and hangers on floating around in there. No doubt Randy and co will evaluate what each individual can/will bring to the table, and then take matters from there.
