Relegation May Not Be the Worst
Before we see numerous amounts of responses below saying that this is outrageous and relegation can't not happen, hear me out.
I'm not for relegation, just stating some interesting things and maybe what we could expect.
We all remember the final day of the season of 2009, where Villa played against Newcastle, this game would determine whether Newcastle would stay in the Premier League or not. The result was 1-0 to Villa, this saw Newcastle getting relegated and this also marked the final game for Gareth Barry in the Villa shirt, he marked his farewell with a goal.
This resulted in a massive transition for Newcastle; which saw many average players on high wages leave and created room for new players. Some of the players that left were Owen, Geremi, Bassong, Martins, Beye, and Duff and in total made 23.5 million. With little players coming in, they developed their youth and once they made the change to the Premier League they were easily capable of buying Ben Arfa and Tiote. A change of manager was also seen, with Chris Haughton given a chance.
Some journalists say that there very much is a similarity of the Newcastle in 2009 and Villa today. We have a lot of average players and on high wages; a move to the championship would really fix that. And more importantly would result to an end of McLeish. Newcastle managed to win the Championship the following year and ever since have been established as a strong Premier League team.
Today we are seeing Newcastle challenging for the Champions League, they have a good scout system located in France. They also have a very strong manager in charge, Alan Pardew. Strange things have happened, but if Villa did get relegated this season I will be in tears but it could result in a better future. With so many similarities between Newcastle of 2009 and Villa today, we could see a completely transformed team in two years time.
Of course I hope this will all occur without Championship football, but the spotlight is on Lerner and I hope he uses Newcastle as a model for how to transform Villa.
