I thought these quotes were worth picking up on and publishing from Villa owner and Chairman Randy Lerner.
I'm not 100% sure of the original source, I would assume this is from the press conference he had recently.
Randy said with reference to the economic hit all businesses and 'men of means' so to speak have taken and whether Villa have to sell etc....
'It`s a fair question and I feel I have the same financial substance that I had when I got here, and I`m prepared to give that assurance.'
'While the financial crisis certainly impacted on me, that impact had no bearing on the wherewithal, or ability or commitment to continue to work for Aston Villa.'
I guess, in reference to any of our players, just like any other club, it just comes down to the fact every player has his price. They have proved for instance they wouldn't be bullied over Gareth Barry and only sold him when the player signalled he had no intention of signing a new deal, wanted to leave and had only 12 months left on his contract. To get £12million in that instance was top money.
With James Milner they have done the same. A £20million bid was rejected. At what price do you accept? I guess that is down to Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United to test if the reports are true that these clubs are interested.
One thing is for certain, no player is bigger than Aston Villa, however I do hope the guy lines up in a Villa shirt next season. My feeling is that he won't be though so we need to - and they will - get every penny they can for him. Prove me wrong though James, stay!
