Now Will You Believe?

Now Will You Believe?
Now will you believe?

After weeks of silly press stories linking Martin O'Neill with tales of disappointment in Randy Lerner, is it time for those same people to retract those thoughts and believe that he is here for the betterment of Aston Villa?

The last 48 hours have seen something at Villa Park that leaves supporters high on excitement for the first time in a long while.

Indeed, since arriving here in August, we have seen money spent on improvements to Bodymoor Heath, the modernisation of the Holte Hotel and even, shock horror, involving supporters in real dialogue.

Now add to that:

9.5m on Ashley Young (move pending)
6m on Stilyan Petrov
The capture of John Carew

And PLEASE BELIEVE !!!

I am already a beleiver Penfold but the Carew deal proves noting, hasn't cost us a penny. I just hope the Young deal goes through as expected, now that will shut some people up!

I would argue that it proves that we are willing to go and pay the wages and that players are willing to come, wouldn't you? This was not happening under Deadly. Let's be more positive, we're too quick to knock.

and they'll be even more willing as the seasons go on and the Villa get back up towards the top of the Prem more regularly, the early signs are there, the summer should bring even more job as the major re-building will surely take place?

I'm not knocking, as I said, I'm a believer, not a trace, no doubt in my mind, I'm in....oh sorry got a bit carried away there:-) I doubt, however that Carew's wages are any more than Baros's were. My point is that in order to signal intent we need to complete a deal bringing in a big name without, arguably, our biggest name going in the opposite direction. I have no doubts about Randy or MON but there are still those out there that need convincing and untill we get that first big name this will continue. Some will probably continue doubting untill we've spent 20 million plus on transfers and have a promise of more to come, but then some people are never satisfied.

The main thing that I am seeing is quality and boy oh boy do we need it.The MON players are starting to shape his team.Ideally a prolific striker to play off Carew will sort out the frontline.We are getting there baby steps,but getting stronger with each one.Just saw that Lyon have 11 strikers on their books including Milan, mmmm.

"ONE SMALL STEP FOR O'NEILL, ONE HUGE STEP FOR VILLA". Neil Armstrong, spoke these words, more or less, almost 40 years ago; but I thought they are still very appropriate for us today. Well done Randy and Martin, long may we continue to have your leadership at Villa Park.
