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.

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!!!!

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.

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!
