Randy, A Message To You

Randy, a message to you.

Was listening to The Specials, Rudi a message to you, the other day and thought, maybe we should send a message to Randy! You know me, any tenuous link will do!

So here you go, leave article comments (this is one for front page article comments only, not the forum thread) and I'll do my best to make sure Randy Lerner reads what the fans think of him and what is happening at Villa.

Long live the Randylution!

What a fantastic wonderful chairman. I think we must be the only fans in the premiership who think so highly of our new leader. This time last year supporting AVFC was a chore, this year evrything is bright and rosy. We have the best manager, the best owner and team running the club and very soon the best team in the land. Thanks Randy and all those helping to return this club to it's rightful position.

Under the previous chairman and manager there were tears of anger. This season the appearance of Ron Saunders before the Manure game and the European Cup Winners before the Sheffield Utd game produced tears of joy. I believe that in 20 years time fans to young to remember the 70/80's will look back on the next few years with same fondness. It is unbelievable that you have managed to give us back our pride in our history and hope for our future in such a short space of time. Thank you.

Having been the laughing stock of English football with our aged previous owner I can only say a very big thank you for the fact that now people have stopped laughing and are starting to take real notice of us again. I do not expect miracles overnight, I do not expect us to break into the top 4 next season but I do believe that a new era of sustainable success is just around the corner for our mighty club. The single important factor in this is you and long may you reign!!!!

onelovevilla .... what a great post. I had not thought of it that way. Many great and successful business men are soon forgotten. As the owner of a successful football club though your name will go down in history (as with the names you mentioned). Randy you have made a great start and you are in serious danger of becoming a legend at one of the worlds greatest football institutions. As time goes by, the more fickle may even make you think twice about your role (many football fans are like that). But stay strong, employ the best staff and ensure that you always have the very best manager available (this will be important when M'ON goes). Keep up the wonderful work.

Thank you Mr Lerner. Let the good times roll. Oh and could you please buy the coach that took the Villa team to Wembley for the 1957 FA Cup Final. It's currently in the Aston Manor Transport Museum but the owner is thinking of selling it. This important (and beautiful) piece of Villa history should remain where it is. In Aston. Thank you.

A bit early in the day for a statement like that OneLove. Time will tell, although, I'm as excited as I have ever been about the Villa. Infact, as excited as when my old man took to Villa Park for the very first time, even though we were playing Blackpool in the third division.

Thank you Mr Lerner for rescuing our beloved club and providing us all with so much optimism for the future in such a short space of time. I'd like to thank you also for recognising our illustrious history and for the humble and gracious way you have conducted yourself. You have achieved more in 12 months, than the previous chairman (i've forgotten his name now) did in 30 years. Thank you!

Thanks Randy for a great first season and real progress after years of wasted time. Yes I am a returning season ticket holder and I'm looking forward to next season. But the best news of all, I think, is that whilst other clubs are getting new owners who seem to be pouring in the cash to buy players and fund high wages, the Villa is being re-built on and off the pitch. The new CEO and staff team, the new training facilities and the business development is so important to future success and it is seeing this developed that makes me think we will see sustained success soon.

thanks for the scarf randy, are these limited edition? because i'm thinking i get get some good money for it on ebay in 10 years time !! seriously though, the club has taken leaps and bounds in the last year, the league may only show progress of 5 places, but its everything else thats been put back in the club that matters, pride, dignity, reminding the others that villa are a force, looking like we can score everytime we get the ball, an acknowledgment of our history, the REALLY fancy star mowed into the pitch (i spent the first half of the sheff utd game trying to work out how it was done!) the renaming of the witton lane stand (this one i'm thanking you for in advance. hint!), the general, the money! but most importantly thank you for O'Neill. i know doug thinks he signed him, but martin only came because of you, its so nice to watch the man at the end of the game, gracious, engaging and amusing. i am a proud, proud villa fan.

A heartfelt thank you Mr Lerner for taking on the running of this great club. It's a huge job, but you've already shown that as well as a keen business brain, you also have a great understanding of what this club means to us - the fans. Everything you have done thus far has been spot on - please continue in the same vein. You have the right man running the playing side - back him when he asks and we'll come good. If he asks you for Emile Heskey, call the men in white coats. Good luck to you Sir, and glad to see the bad old days of our Chairman disputing expense claims for cans of mosquito spray are long gone!

Randy, I'm only 25 but a life long fan. Villa makes me smile more than my Girl firend! Seeing us make the progress we have in the last 12 months on/off the pitch, and the belief that's now installed amongst current regular supporters, shows there's light at the end of the tunnel, and we're only just boarding that train! no doubt I will meet you in person one day and congratulate/thank you myself.
