Former manager Ron Atkinson believes that football works in cycles, therefore our time to sit at the top will soon be back with us.
Calling our Top 6 finish this year an impressive achievement, BFR still thinks from next season on we are well placed to challenge for the very top honours and that we will be doing so for many years to come.
Speaking on the official site he said that Villa, like Spurs and Everton are big clubs who will be back near the top at some point, pointing out that only Man United are guaranteed to be there or thereabouts in the future.
'Overall, if Villa finish in the top six it's been a good season. Martin will want to end the season on a high now and send the fans home happy and give the club a real sense of optimism as everyone goes off for the summer.
'This season the big four have proved they are still the big four. But I am a firm believer that football works in cycles and there will be a time when the big four won't be the big four.
'A team like Manchester United will always be there or thereabouts but will Chelsea break up? Are Arsenal ever going to sign a centre-half to keep them up there?
'I have this argument with a lot of people - Villa, like Tottenham and Everton - are a massive football club and there will be a time when they are back battling right at the top again.'
