Other results were:-

4% will have to go to less away games

It's gotta be Randy...i can see MON leaving when it gets to 5 years...he always does. Why would he only be on a one year rolling contract else? MON is the most important in the here and now, but what Randy does for this club is where we'll rise or fall.

I don't even think Agbonlahor should be in the short list. Curtis Davies and Nigel Reo-coker both spring to mind as being more important. Hopefully I'll be proved wrong but I don't think we will go much further if we stick with Carew and Agbonlahor up front.

Well said, totally agree

Gareth Barry!!!! LOL! The Fans are the most important. By a long way. Owner, Managers and indeed players all move on, but the fans remain!!!!

So why are they not on the list???

All as important as each other. Gabby and Ashley the upcoming talent, Laursen the Lion, O'Neil the chief and Lerner the investor. Without either aspect the system would fail.

Its got to be Martin O'neil, its not as if Randy Lerner knows much about football

MON short term, RL long term.

In response to villabikes29 - I think thats the beauty of Randy Lerner. He doesn't know much about football so therefore doesn't get too involved; instead leaving the running of the club to those who do know about football. He's the perfect investor. We only have to look back at the demise of Villa towards the end of the Deadly Doug era to see the ill effects that a chairman/investor getting too involved can have. Ellis was quite clearly happy to run the club as a business, not allow the managers to make any big purchases, and finish mid-table/top half each year but making a small profit (or certainly not making a loss). Whilst thats all well and good, us fans who want to win some things, see some class players at our club and perhaps have a chance at something, saw it differently. With Randy, he's not afraid to put up some money 'speculate to accumulate', put his trust in a manager to spend it wisely and he appears to be as interested in the 'sport' as the 'business'. What a breath of fresh air. Bravo Randy!

Its got to the supporters for me. The management and manager can come and go but we remain.......

Sod the supporters we don`t know anything.

I think the fans go without saying, if it wasnt for the fans, then nobody would bother voting. But I think the put of the vote is to see who fans see as the most important part of the club's future of the people at the club.

MON without a doubt. he's the one who does/doesn't sign the players.... !
industrial_musical
If we take the fans out of it. Al the above are equally as important as the other. Everyone has a role to play in the future of our great club.
gappy65
Randy for me. If MON left tomorrow we would be able to get another decent manager in. But if Randy goes we could end up right in the s-h-i-t
son_of_cher
1st is us supporters, then 2nd is Randy Lerner and 3rd is MON.
Villan-in-Cyprus
Got to be MON, closely followed by Mr Lerner. Two of the top men in their respective circles. We couldn't be better served.

Lets not forget though, quality players and us the supporters. Lets not miss the opportunity to pat ourselves on the back.
