Ron Saunders 'Coming Home' +++
General Charles Krulak has revealed that Randy Lerner
'has invited, and Ron Saunders has excepted, to be our guest at the Aston Villa-ManU game on 23 December. Ron is coming home.'
I believe there could also be a presentation to Ron at half time.
Doesn't get any better than this does it?
Oh, and hot off the press, I believe a £7million re-development of the 'tired' Holte Suite is under way or about to get under way.
So, we might have Doug on every radio show that will have him and in every paper with quotes as to how well he's done BUT for me, ACTION speaks so much louder than words.
So what have we had now?
A new owner who shuns the publicity as he doesn't want to be Mr Aston Villa, he wants the attention to be on the club not himself.
The Bodymoor training ground re-development has been re-started and plans improved.
Free transport was given to fans taking them to the Chelsea game (although I'm still waiting for payment of my limo hire bill!)
A happy manager with the promise of a proper war chest.
A legendary manager about to be brought back and honoured.
Plans for statues.
The Holte Hotel restored.
Fans representatives being listened to.
£7million refurb of the Holte Suite (if my sources are correct)
Still no cushioned, heated seat with pop up umbrella and drinks dispenser for me though.
