Absolutely NO Villa Park Re-naming

Absolutely NO Villa Park Re-naming

Rumours were abound following the takeover of Aston Villa that Villa Park would at some stage be re-named.

Reports have been made in papers and all have been shot down in flames by Villa.

So, once and for all, will Villa Park be re-named?

'Absolutely not.'

Who says?

Randy Lerner says!

He also added: 'Now does that include a reasonable offer for one of the stands? Or are we talking about Villa Park becoming the 'Dorito Bowl' or something like that? Let's say we looked at the North Stand and Nike for example wanted to name that stand. That's a different proposition to renaming the stadium. We are not changing the name of Villa Park. The name will not be changed.'

All sounds very reasonable doesn't it?!

I dunno, "The Pepsi One Dorito Bowl at Villa Park" has a certain ring to it.

God bless him. Villa Park it should always be. That's tradition, and there aint a club in the world that could match us for it. We are founding father's after all.
