Randy Can Stay (!) BUT Please Communicate?

Randy Can Stay (!) BUT Please Communicate?

Another poll to summarise.

So, we asked:

Should Randy Stay Or Go?
Poll Date: 15 Jan 2013
Suggested By: MF

Seems he is allowed to stay, which is just as well, because he owns the place! But, well, you get the drift of the question, should he stay or go, has he outstayed his welcome. Certainly the criticism has gone from very little to a considerably vocal 'minority` with others questioning what is going on - rightly. I`m sure he is as well to be fair.

The result does speak for itself and I`ve let them know:

Yes, stay, but we need better communication 60%

Other answers:

Yes he should stay 15%

Depends on how he backs Lambert this window 9%

Go, he had his chance 8%

Go, fullstop 8%

Yes, stay, but this is his last chance 0%

Disappointed with the choices in the poll for this one. There was no "only if he gets his wallet out for the lads" option. If his communication is pointless breeze then he may aswell stay shut up. If we don't like what his communications say then most that voted for that option will probably change it to clear off?!?!?!?! If his communications make everyone feel better but he doesn't follow through then again, he will be wanted rid of surely.

Money talks but actions speak louder than words. We get neither!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Worried me that Charlie Nicholas said on Soccer Saturday '' I know Paul Lambert well & if he had any money to spend he'd have spent it by now''

I would just like to hear from himself as to why we have cut back so much. I think we all know the reasons, but it would be nice to hear it direct from Randy. I can't see us getting anybody in, it is worrying, but hopefully we can string a run of results together and pull clear in time.

There are only two mega rich owners in the Prem ... Mansour and Abramovic. They can spend what they want and form sponsors or companies to cover it up. UTD, Arsenal are in huge debt but have the ongoing revenues to sustain it (they hope), Liverpool are in the same boat with huge borrowed debt to finance the club but again get huge revenues globaly as well as at home. The rest of us have to live within our means. I don't want Aston Villa bankrupt adn in the lower leagues like Pompey, Leeds, Millwall, Luton town etc.... so I accept this but would like the club to appoint a footballing CEO / Director to communicate with the fan base on a rugular basis regarding the targets and ambition of the club on and off the field. I don't expect a detailed plan on the website or how the are going to exactly achieve it to the dot obvoiusly, that would give rivals an insight too ! but just some info on what's next for the long term. I would like to see Lambert evolve with this club and be supported sensibly by the owner. The silence though is enough to send you crazy. UTV

Astonbilla ....... Nicholas and the other pundits blow hot air ...... The right players have to come in for the long term, you end up with has beens on 3 and 4 year contracts otherwise. It has to be done right. The players ability, personality, commitment and compatibility with the squad has to be bang on now, no half measures or panic buying for the sake of it. The club has lost 90 odd million over the last few seasons because of the staff wage bill. A quality CB and MF is a must and they have to be right for the club. It isn't as easy as it looks. UTV

Yeah astonmilan, it's not as hard as we've made it look either. Randy has been here 6 years now and he's only just worked out the sensible approach and we're considerably worse off than when he turned up. I don't want to hear excuses.
21/01/2013 15:45:00
21st Jan and no new faces. Tick-tock Randy.........
21/01/2013 15:46:00
Astonmilan maybe they do,maybe they don't , but in the absence of any signings & as we're 21 days into the transfer window with 10 days to go , I think I've the right to be worried, because with the squad we've got ,we're IMO down
