'If It's Football, It's Vital'

COO Michael Cunnah Leaves Aston Villa

Blimey, this is strange. Following the departure of Richard FitzGerald as CEO, the COO of Aston Villa has now also departed.

The club have released a very short statement saying Michael Cunnah has left to 'seek new challenges' and the club go on to thank him and wish him good luck for the future.

Who?
JOHN.CAREWS.CREW
lol, he was our chief operating officer, came in not long before the CEO left. He also oversaw Wembley construction project I believe. Just seems a bit strange now we have no coo or ceo. Will be all eyes on who is incoming perhaps!
The Fear
Maybe they were just bought in to put new teams in place? More of a consultancy role or something, now maybe the people are in place and the structures are there so they aren't needed anymore. It's not uncommon for this to happen when a company goes into new ownership.

Not sure whether to be concerned by this or not.

We have taken him off the payroll so that we can pay Thiery Henry 90,000 a week!
KSarge1
Agree neil, still finding their feet and getting the right team around them. Not a great deal to be concerned about, they have very capable directors + Randy might just know his way around a business deal or two as well!
The Fear
Great News the man that masterminded the move of the Trinity 400 has gone
FatKev
I see that, according to every Villa fan's favourite newspaper, the Birmingham Mail, we've been 'dealt a blow' by Cunnah leaving. Well I guess he must have been a big cog in the Villa machine then, with us being 'dealt a blow'. Wonder if we'll ever recover? :o)
BobTheBuilder
No stability at the top. Come on Randy, get it sorted. Important role, we need the right man, or female, at the helm. Could do with a new CEO in place for the expected summer activity. Wonder what the 'problem' is, the role seems a poisoned chalice.

Thought the news would be greeted with glee by FatKev. Can understand your anger/frustration FK.
