Randy As Keen As Mustard
Martin O'Neill says that Randy Lerner is bursting to bring some players in as he experiences his first transfer window.
The Villa boss enthused: 'Randy is enthusiastic and wants to get going - but it might be all wild goose chases and we end up with nothing. He's keen to sort things out but he's not here specifically because it's the transfer window. I wouldn't read anything into it - it's only because the Cleveland Browns' season is over and I think he had a number of issues to address there.'
'He has his own businesses to sort out while he's here and I think he wants to use every minute if he can to help us. He's hoping to be here for a good part of the next three months and base himself more here for the next couple of months than America. He's really enthusiastic, which is great.'
He also says Randy really wanted to get involved with Villa despite other clubs wanting him to get involved with them. 'He chose Villa. And I think he's done his best to read about the history and get the whole thing going. I feel he doesn't want to speak until he's done something. I don't think he's a fool.'
