The General has spoken of the addiction of Villa and lauded the fans.
'It's great to be with the fans. The fans are what makes the experience all the more delightful. To see the excitement of the Villa fans is very special.'
And in comparison to his home land? We win hands down according to him! 'From the standpoint of fan participation it's far, far better than American football. The constant roar and din of Villa Park is not to be equalled in America.'
He has also told the official site of his joy at having Martin O'Neill as manager.
'We are delighted to have O'Neill. Randy had a lot of conversations with Martin during the transaction and we could not be happier. He is more than just a brilliant manager and more than just a brilliant tactician. He is a brilliant leader. What the Villa fans are seeing is not just a smart manager on the sideline, what they are seeing is a great leader who has taken a club and instilled within them a desire and a belief that they can do it, that they can win.'
He continued: 'Martin is smart in saying that they are not going to win every game, we'd love to do that, but at the same time he is asking his players and the fans to stick with the club that they are going to get the results that they want, and that we all want. He motivates in many ways. One, he just has an aura of success. Everything he has touched has been very good, but equally, if not more important, he inspires confidence in the players because he has confidence in them.
'They see that this man has confidence in their abilities and that brings forth a great effort. He is a leader and a motivator.'
