Should Mr Lerner 'Buy' The League?

Should Mr Lerner 'Buy' The League?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by voiceoftheholte:

Would you want Randy to 'buy' the title?

Interestingly, only 22% said that they would and want the Villa's owner to 'spend whatever it takes'.

The same amount (22%) voted no saying they should only spend what the club could afford.

The majority said they would prefer to see Villa do it 'our' way (54%)

Only 1% wanted to see us do it the Manchester United way, which is a bit surprising as they brought through a great crop of kids, supplemented them with quality players and made history throughout the 90's and are still reaping the rewards now!

1% voted they wanted to see Villa win fairly and squarely.

That left NOBODY at all wanting to do it the Chelsea way. In their defence, something I've never done before I might add (!) they have the right to ask why we all say they bought the league and don't point the same finger at Manchester United who, through this summers spending alone, have surely all be guaranteed the title next season?

Our latest poll asks who you would most like to see come to Villa next.

It's one thing having the money, it's another getting the right players on board. So far, I think Portsmouth and Spurs have made excellent signings & are ahead of us. They've paid over the odds, but added some quality to thier squad.

I've said along that we'll have to pay a bit over the odds, because if we don't someone else will, and I think my point's been proven, that said I don't think any of the players sold so far, I personaly would have wanted at Villa, lets hope things improve

I didn't vote as I didn't really undertstand all of the options (call me stoopid!). What exactly does "Do it 'our' way" mean? I'd like to see MON spend money wisely with the youth academy continuing to bring through talent to supplement his purchases. Simple as. Mr Lerner's millions should only mean that we can afford to buy a player IF MON feels a particular player would enhance the squad AND if said player can be convinced that VP is the place to be. MON is as important a cog in this as anyone.

Eltoro - Distin, Bale, Nugent and Bent are all players that would have added quality to our threadbare squad.

Bale is unproven at prem level so far and hugely overpriced,Nugent made it clear he only wanted to join Everton and got stuck with Portsmouth,Bent is possibly the most overpriced player in the history of football,Distin and Parker I might agree with you,we could never compete with Chelsea for Ben Haim,
