Randy's Wembley Experience

Randy's Wembley Experience

Chairman Randy Lerner has talked briefly about his highlights of the season, and it's no surprise to see Wembley figure in his memories.

Speaking on the Official Site Randy talked about seeing the fans and the atmosphere they created at Wembley, aswell as picking out our victories at Anfield and Old Trafford as special moments.

He also felt a sense of pride in seeing Milner's achievements both on and off the pitch, as well as seeing the continued progress of our reserve and Academy lads.

On Wembley specifically, he said:

'It was a great experience on a personal level. I got to go to Wembley twice with my kids, and saw tens of thousands of Villa fans in their colours, celebrating the experience.'

He adds he didn't know quite what to expect from the Wembley experience, but that he treasured it and you can tell he hopes to experience it a lot more in the future.

The chairman is obviously full of praise for Milner winning Young Player of the Year, especially as it kept the title at Villa following Ash's achievements the year before and also reserves mention for the Dunneymonster in making the Team of the Year but there are also quiet, off the pitch moments that stick with him aswell.

'The performance of the reserve and youth teams, getting to the reserve cup final, the people responsible for that - there is a lot of work that goes on.

'Walking around in the middle of the afternoon in the pouring rain and seeing Gordon Cowans with all that he stand for and all that he has accomplished talking to Gary Gardner or Ciaran Clark. Those little hidden quiet moments are worth mentioning because they are probably the experience I am having.'

As you read his full quotes, it appears obvious he's both happy with our progress on the pitch so far, but more importantly maybe he's thrilled by the progress that we don't always see that will help shape our future and provide the stars of tomorrow.

Wish he was a zillionaire, but thankful for what he has done so far.
