Randy: VILLA ARE NOT A SELLING CLUB

Randy:  VILLA ARE NOT A SELLING CLUB


Randy Lerner has hit out at press claims - lazy pundit claims as well - that Villa are a selling club.

I've banged on about this for a while as I'm a big fan of this board but also hate the inaccuracy and lazy labeling of Villa. All clubs sell at the right price, but as Randy explains, that doesn't make us a selling club:

Lerner said: 'We are not a selling club. A selling club is when you let it be known that you want to sell a player, through an agent or whatever. That didn`t happen with Gareth Barry and it didn`t happen with James Milner either. As for Ashley Young, he was never going.'

So there you go. Nicely explained in one easy sentence, at no point has Randy alerted agents or whoever that he wants to sell our top players. If a club comes in and turns the head of a player, if a player is unhappy and wants out or if an offer comes in that is too good to refuse and that money helps go back into team building, that is football at all levels isn't it?

But Vanilla Ice, we haven't HAD to sell our best players to bring in others. Our best players were sold as they expressed a wish to leave, nothing we can do about it. MON spending 120million on players in 4 years and only selling £39million worth doesn't suggest he had to sell to buy, and that's what the papers mean by it, that we HAVE to sell if we want to buy

Debate the post, not the poster folks. No need for pointless insults or comments in either direction.
