White Flags - £10million - 12th Man Will Perform!

White Flags - £10million - 12th Man Will Perform!

Nothing new here I don`t think, The Mirror says that Paul Lambert has just £10million to spend this summer including wages.

I think this has been mooted before, at the end of the season, when Randy decided he was putting up the white flag, sorry, putting the Club up for sale because he has grown bored of his latest train set.

Now it is pretty clear and has been since the Club was (rightly, he should have done it before) put on the market, that if it doesn`t sell, and it isn`t a given that it will, we will be bang in trouble next season.

Easy logic really, we`ve been bang in trouble for four seasons due to the misguided and clumsy way that Randy has run the club. Now take away and last semblance of interest, the stay away owner is looking for nothing but survival next season if no sale comes along.

With four relegation battles already under our belts, this one looks even more desperate, however, at least we all know from the get go the situation, it won`t shock anyone and despite it being a disgrace that the owner who came in with so much promise and so many promises is running a massive football club like this the way he is, those of us who will attend know the situation and I guess it gives the season the 'bite` needed in that every single point will be crucial, every game a cup final and although that will never be good enough for AVFC, it is exactly where we are at.

The one thing that always will be constant at this wonderful but underachieving club, is the 12th man will turn up!

What happened to that TV money that we "won" at the end of the season?? Seeing how it's not likely that the club will be sold before the start of the season, wouldn't it be in Scrooge's best interest to make sure we stay in the Premier League by investing a bit more than 10p? Clueless idiot

This is all a little harsh. RL was a card-carrying BILLIONAIRE when he / his trust bought the club. Subsequent events in the world of finance rendered him a mere MILLIONAIRE. Do you realised that in Lincolnshire you're a millionaire if you've got an acre or two? Would we be any better off with a spud-fork wielding farmer as our owner? Ship happens, a world of ship has fallen upon RL, I feel a bit sad about it, really.

Get real,this arrogant yank has created his Own problems by his lack of knowledge. He could still turn the club back to success but He has no bottle. No sympathy from me,look At the idiots still on his pay cheque. The only Ones suffering are Avfc, Fans
