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

Villa's Mutual Appreciation Society!

Martin O'Neill has responded to the praise heaped on him this week by Villa owner Randy Lerner.

'It's very nice of him to say such things. I get on very well with him and I won't abuse that sort of relationship in any way. But the best way for me not to abuse it is by reciprocating and by winning matches.'

Adding: 'He's been fantastically supportive - every single thing you could ask for he's done - even if we haven't been able to put some of the ideas we've had into practice.'

In other words, watch this space, the Villa are back.

it all seems to good to be true, Martin loves Randy and Randy loves Martin, the truth however is at the moment they need each others support. Randy has undertaken a venture into UK Football, he will succeed or fail depending on his manager and his ability to get the team performing and winning things, MON has a Chairman who is showing blind faith in his ability as a manager and as such wil be supported in the transfer market to the hilt. This is a honeymoon that could with the right results last for a very long time.

To be successful in the modern day era of Premiership football, you have to get it right at the very top, both on and off the field of play. We have finally succeeded in that quest, and in RL and MON have the right men at the helm to steer this club back to the upper reaches of the premiership. They are quite obviously forming a great working relationship, and that has to be good news for the immediate future and progress of AVFC.

Isn't it great to have leaders without any egotistical traits whatsoever. What a change it is to hear the new "deadly duo" talking without trying to make capital or manipulate situations for their own ends. Old "Deadly" must now feel like a "fish-out-of-water" at VP - I wonder what he does as President and whether anyone talks to him anymore?

I think that Randy has already proven that he's the type of owner/chairman you really want to work for. He'll provide you with all the tools you need, give you his full support and backing, plus allow you space and time to realise the fruits of your labours.
