Nothing on the official site but sites like the BBC, Sky and paper sites are reporting that Randy Lerner has announced that Villa boss Martin O'Neill will be staying for a 5th season.

We'll update and bring quotes if and when they are available.

Good news! Think there'll be a bit of wheeling and dealing over the summer from the looks of it.

Benayoun linked...yes please! Also big links out for Carvalho, Deco, Ferreria and Belletti on the way out - why not do what Sunderland did a while back with Spurs - a mass bid for the 3 Portugese ones!! They would improve the squad no end!!

Well I'm in the 'All Hail' camp, so its two thumbs up from me. Now lets get down to the serious business of over-hauling the squad, and putting ourselves in the position of being able to challenge for all on offer again next season. The club has made great strides over the past three seasons, but the hard work is now ahead of us. Only a united front will see us achieve any goals we may set ourselves, so its good to read that the owner and manager appear to be both singing from the same hymn sheet. I was very concerned there for a while.

I aint happy about it, unless the stubborn ***** changes, but i cant see him changing... because he is stubborn.

Very good news IMO. Yes, I agree with krisvilla that MON needs to be less stubborn, but I think the good points greatly outweigh the negative ones. I can't see us having mega money to spend, but that is understandable in the current climate. What we have (and I think it will be a decent amount) must be spent wisely. Hopefully the negative press on MON future will stop now, and concentrate on how to improve the squad

MON is surely the perfect manager to get the best out of a group of players. We know we don't have unlimited funds so we have to get the best out of the players we have and MON is the one to do that. I agree he's signed some dodgy players, but we needed to get the squad numbers up. He also doesn't like changing his starting 11, but part of that is a lack of top class backups and part is that we've (touch wood) been very lucky with injuries so he hasn't needed to. We still need a few key back up players (a poacher, a gem of a midfielder, defensive depth) but we're moulding a team that has been in Europe for three years now, had a cup semi, a cup final, and finished above a Liverpool team containing Gerrard and Torres! Villa is a long term project and I'm chuffed with how far we've come since dreary O'Leary days. UTV!!!
