Villa CEO Elected To FA Council

Villa CEO Elected To FA Council

www.avfc.co.uk have announced that Paul Faulkner has been voted on to prestigious FA Council.

The 33-year-old Villa CEO said: 'For Villa to have a voice on the Council is great for the club. There is prestige but also value in having representation on the Council and I'm pleased and proud as Villa chief executive that our efforts as a club over a number of seasons have been recognised and rewarded in this way.'

Info on the Council:

FA Site: Click Here

Wiki: Click Here who state:

The FA Council consists of 92 elected representatives, from the FA Premier League, the Football League, County FAs, and the non-executive board of The Football Association. The council meets to decide the major policies of The FA, which is the governing body of English football.

Great news for Villa, representation at such a high level can only profit us and about time they started to get younger people in there. Paul Faulkner, if you remember, has started investigating the chances of bringing back limited standing, maybe this will help that quest as well.

And maybe for just one day the haters can give it a rest! They`ve now managed to bring in the right manager, ok, a few rocky patches on the way but now we move forward surely? Plus, this CEO has brought in the biggest deal the club has ever had (Genting) and the largest shirt deal as well (Makron)

Congrats to Villa and congrats to Paul Faulkner.

Good for Villa that, despite Ellis his involvement with the FA did work well for us in terms of hosting games and the like, some never will see what PF has done well for us because of the appointments and I can get that lol, just hope if we get it right on the pitch now the work that's gone in off the pitch will get the credit it deserves.

Yes i had a moan about Paul Faulkner last season and the appointment of Mcleish and the over spending on wages under MoN etc but our wages are literally healthier now and we have a amanger the majority of us wanted so i have no problems in congratulaing PF on his appointment in the FA well done, he has done a lot of good work for Villa off the field there is no doubt about it, increasing our revenue year on year and pulling in big sponsorship deals is good for Villa, Its true what you say both Fear and Mike, all we need now is to get sorted on the field and i think and hopeful of that being the case in the appointment of Lambert happy days, hope the board players and fans can all be as one like this club was a few years ago now its all looking up for Villa!

92 members on the council... thats more than one per club for everyone in the football league! Forgive me for not feeling too excited! PF did well at the business but wages and personnel choices were unwise. At 33 what can you expect. Mordor comment classic!

I'm getting a bit giddy with all this. What next... Messi signs on a free transfer with wages of £30 and a curly wurly (his favourite I hear) a week?
